​Welcome to Your Next Perfect Date Night

You can create your own pizza and then walk right next door for delicious, homemade desserts.

I could not be more excited about two new establishments that have opened in Duluth. This pair presents the perfect date night, family night or treat yourself opportunity.

Create & Bake Pizza and Coughman's Creamery were opened by NFL player Edawn Coughman. While each spot has it's own front door, you can also go through a connecting doorway inside, so you have easy access to pizza and home made desserts. Pizza. And. Ice Cream. I'd say Mr. Coughman's a genius.

Create & Bake Pizza has a Wich Which feel—when you walk in, you fill out a menu with your pizza size, sauce and toppings. You can also put in a order of wings and appetizers. Before I get into the pizza, I've got to tell you, the wings were phenomenal. We tried the hot-honey and jerk wings, and both packed a punch of flavor.

Aside from the build your own pizza option, Create & Bake offers monthly specials, so we tried their special chorizo and peppers pizza. These pies are made on a conveyor belt, so the crust comes out the perfect combination of crispy and soft. Chorizo seems to be all the rage right now, and I'm happy about that—we're devoured this monthly special.

After stuffing ourselves full of pizza and wings, we obviously had to try desserts from Coughman's Creamery. Pretty much everything here is homemade—the ice cream, the donuts—you can't go wrong. 

They actually make something called an ice cream panini, which is ice cream between donuts briefly cooked in a panini maker. *insert drooling face emoji

While the panini sounded intriguing, I was much more interested to have my very own ice cream sandwich made in front of me. The folks at Coughman's will have you pick your cookie and ice cream, and then you have the choice to have it dunked in chocolate and rolled in a candy topping. I went all the way and order that beauty you see above—chocolate chip cookies with vanilla ice cream, dipped in chocolate and rolled in fruity pebbles. Needless to say, I loved it.

Next time you're in the mood to go out, be sure to check out these two fantastic stops. Keep up with Create & Bake and Coughman's on Facebook for specials and updates.
