Chipotle partner Pizzeria Locale coming to KC in summer

Pizzeria Locale, a partnership between Chipotle and Colorado restaurateurs Bobby Stuckey and Lachlan Mackinnon-Patterson, is coming to the Waldo district of Kansas City for its first foray outside its home state. The first area restaurant is scheduled to open this summer at 505 W. 75th St., next to a Chipotle Mexican Grill in Waldo. It is expected to hire between 15 and 20 employees.

The original Pizzeria Locale opened in Boulder, followed by the first location under the Chipotle partnership in Denver in May 2013. Another Denver restaurant opened in October 2014.

Pizzeria Locale customers select their own ingredients, including anchovies, broccolini, capers, eggplant, Gorgonzola, pork meatballs, prosciutto, red onion and zucchini. The pizzas are then fired in a custom-designed, high-temperature pizza oven.
