Stewart's is selling dough boys from Esperanto

esperanto doughboy

Updated

There is no doubt an alternate universe where this has already happened because it makes sense: Stewart's is now offering dough boys from Esperanto in Saratoga Springs at a handful of its locations in Saratoga County.

Doughboys are, of course, chicken, three types of cheese (including cream cheese), and spices wrapped into a pizza dough. (Esperanto also sells a dough girl that swaps out the chicken for vegetables. Those are not being offered by Stewart's right now.)

They're very popular (especially late at night, because you know). When we talked with Esperanto many years ago about them, the Caroline Street shop's signature item made up a third of its business.

The dough boys will be at Stewart's for what the company describes as a limited time. They're $3.99 and are being served hot in the warmer with items such as the eggwich or in the racks that also hold the pizza.

"Literally, they just rolled out this weekend," said Stewart's spokesperson Maria D'Amelia (pun partially intended we think). "We're just really trying to gauge reaction."

D'Amelia said Stewart's will make a decision about whether to continue carrying the dough boys -- or expand to other locations -- based on this test run. So far, she said, there's been a lot of interest.

That first link above includes a list of the Stewart's locations offering dough boys.
