It can be hard to choose between thin- and thick-crust pizza; one offers a satisfying crunch and the other gives you a cool place to store your broadsword during dinner. This Groupon serves up a pan pie that's the best of both worlds.

Gulliver's famous pan pizzas come filled with melted cheese and zesty sauce, holding your choice of one of 27 available ingredients, such as mild or spicy sausage, turkey, eggplant, or fresh broccoli. Bubbly pitchers of draft beer and soda or glasses of house wine wash down meals. Instead of drinks, diners can also choose to preempt their meals with a gourmet salad, such as the Gulliver's italian, topped with three cheeses, salami, anchovies, and olives. See the menu.
Even if Gulliver's ovens went cool and the warm-weather chatter on its back patio went silent, visitors would still be drawn through the unassuming façade to witness the sights inside. Dozens of antique lamps from the 19th and early 20th centuries hang from the walls, casting a delicate light on the restaurant's cozy, wood-and-leather interior. Fortunately for hungry patrons, the kitchen continues to operate 47 years after its founding, quieting stomachs' growls with its take on Chicago-style deep-dish pizza.
After slapping a mound of their housemade dough into the pan, chefs carefully contour the crust to leave thick, chewy edges and a thin, golden bottom—a tasty compromise for lovers of thin and thick pies. Next, layers of cheese, fresh veggies, and meats such as ham and homemade sausage form a base, covered by a zesty garlic sauce that earned praise from the Chicago Reader. Thin- and stuffed-crust pizzas round out pie offerings, and a tasty cornucopia of Italian soups, sandwiches, and entrees sates pizza-averse diners.
