When ancient berserker warriors needed to snap out of their uncontrollable trance-like fury after a battle, they did so with cheesy, smile-inducing pizza. Today’s Groupon will similarly quell your warrior rage against the modern onslaught of traffic congestion and people texting at the movies. For $10, you get $25 worth of cheese-cradling crust, calzones, salads, and more at Savage Pizza, which slings pies from its locations in Little Five Points and Avondale Estates. This Groupon is not valid with delivery, but is valid with the soon-to-be-developed pizza teleportation device.
Because pizza has no natural predator in the American ecosystem, the ones on Savage Pizza’s menu have been free to cross-breed with indigenous cuisines—leading to Savage Pizza's signature Cajun pizza (roasted chicken, shrimp, andouille sausage, red onions, green peppers, and three cheeses in a spicy red-pepper sauce, $17.25/12" medium) and Greek pizza (feta, artichoke hearts, Greek olives, red onion, fresh spinach, and two cheeses in a garlic tomato sauce, $14/12" medium). If the Mexican, Mai Pai, Bolognese, or Deluxe pies don't tickle your fancy until it presses charges for harassment, you can always build your own pizza ($10.25 for 12" with toppings from $1–$1.50 each) with the maniacal flair of one of the supervillains that adorn the pizzeria's comic book–lined walls.
Savage Pizza also offers several non-circular food items for cylinder aficionados and oval lovers. Specialty calzones ($7.75–$8.75) are available in flavors such as spinach, Mexican, and chicken, while sub sandwiches ($6–$6.50) on white or wheat rolls come in meatball, eggplant parmesan, and cheesesteak varieties, among others. For something healthier, chomp through some vitamin-doused leafage with a Greek ($4.95, deluxe $6.50) or field greens ($2.95) salad. Each Groupon is good for one table, so treat your entire Justice League to a pile of piquant pizza under the approving gaze of Wonder Woman and the Silver Surfer.
Knife & Fork has featured Savage Pizza, offering a rave review of its pies:
- Maybe because we have mellowed with age and no longer feel that a pizza can only be topped with tomatoes, cheese, and the occasional slice of sausage, we love the gourmet angle of the chicken Florentine pizza (garlic white sauce, roasted chicken, fresh spinach, yellow onions, Gruyére, mozzarella, and parmesan)…
- Savage pizza makes awesome, fresh and delicious pizza! Love the fact we can order whole wheat crust too! Yum! – hhjoyjoy, Kudzu
- The pizza there was excellent - we ordered the Cajun both times because it was so good, and the caesar salad was really yummy and has a huge portion. We ordered chicken on the caesar both times and they put lots of chicken breast on top it. The atmosphere is very casual - good for friends or your family... – froodle, Citysearch
