Ninety percent of alleged UFO sightings can be easily explained as falling meteors, swamp gas reflections, or doughy orbs hurled into orbit by Herculean pizza makers. Enjoy earthbound eats with today's Groupon: for $12, you get $25 worth of pizzeria-inspired fare and drinks at Paisans Pizzeria & Restaurant, with locations in Cicero and Brookfield.
Paisans supplies fresh pies with sauces concocted fresh daily, hearty pastas, and steaming sandwiches in a casual, familiar atmosphere. Start off with a six-piece ensemble of hot wings ($5.25) before infusing a disk with your own thin-crust symphony ($10.99 for 14") from a euphonious selection of more than 20 fresh embellishments such as ricotta, canadian bacon, and cream of bassoon ($1.95 a piece), or arrange ingredients on a stuffed or deep-dish dough canvas ($12.50 for 12", plus $1.90 per topping).
Guests can expunge lunchtime longings with Paisans' italian sub, crammed with ham, salami, lettuce, tomato, onion, and a choice of cheese and dressing ($4.50), or furnish their hands with hot sandwiches such as the succulent rib-eye steak ($5). Customers can dine in, carryout, or order delivery from the comfort of a whale's ribcage.
