The best pizzas, like the worst Elvis impersonators, are cheesy, saucy, and often live in cardboard boxes. Sink your teeth into a doughy classic with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of pizza and sandwiches at Salvatore's Pizzeria in Shorewood. Salvatore's Pizzeria is closed on Mondays.
The doughsmiths at Salvatore's Pizzeria assemble a menu of five specialty pizzas and six sandwiches made with fresh ingredients and dough and bread crafted by Peter Sciortino's Bakery, a Milwaukee staple. Like Pavlov's dogs on their Sicilian vacation, mouths water instinctively when the scent of fresh-mozzarella-and-marinara appetizers ($5.95) fills the air. Medium Veggie Lovers pizzas ($15.65) round up a posse of pugnacious greens, olives, onions, and green peppers to coax bubbling cheese into settling amid Salvatore's famous crust, and a medium supreme pie ($17.10) ups the ante with sausage and pepperoni. Sandwiches such as the meatball sub ($6.95) accompany sides of fries and expertly transport saucy contents, illustrating why the best suitcases are usually constructed from bread.
The thin crust was done to perfection the sauce tasted fresh and not overly sweetened.George T., Yelp, 7/20/11
Not only was their pizza wonderful, but so were the mini arancini, mozzarella marinara, and tiramisu that we ordered.Felicia, Urbanspoon, 10/11/11
