Meatball Pie from Rosco’s, Dish #40


Welcome to 100 Dishes to Eat Now, the tasty countdown leading up to our “Best of 2012” issue. Tune in each day (weekends too!) for a new dish from the Fork in the Road team.

Meatball pizza ($16) , dish #40

Jonathan Greenberg used to cook the pies at Paulie Gee’s and Franny’s. Now he’s in Prospect Heights, running a cute neighborhood slice spot with both counter service and seating. The dough is made with organic flour, the teeny meatballs with grass-fed beef. Though the thin crusts are pale as generic delivery pizza, they’re not dense or soggy. Play arcade games while you wait for your order and nibble on crisp, golden rice balls (below, $6)
