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.
