Kostaki’s Pizzeria’s cooks hand-toss their dough, lending it an airy texture before stuffing it with mozzarella and cutting it into St. Louis-style squares within its Cherry Hill kitchen. They can customize pizzas with gyro meat, banana peppers, and the piquant sauces that also flavor their chicken wings. They also whip up a 14 specialty pies, such as a BBQ Chicken, Hawaiian, and the Flagstone, which hoists hefty toppings of peppers, mushrooms, pepperoni, ham, and italian sausage. The restaurant rounds out its menu with chicken wings, half-pound Angus beef burgers, gyros, and beers from Boulevard and Leinenkugel.
The kitchen crew at Imo’s Pizza has been decorating slices of South Saint Louis–style pizza—which substitutes provel cheese for mozzarella on a thin crust—since its founding in 1964 by Ed and Margie Imo. Now with more than 90 locations, the business delivers its signature pies throughout the state. The Deluxe piles fresh, never frozen mushrooms, onions, green peppers, and tomatoes over cheese and juxtaposes with the All Meat, whose original thin or thicker crust bolsters sausage, pepperoni, and both canadian and regular bacon.
Macaroni and cheese might not seem the likeliest of pizza toppings, but CiCis Pizza serves just such noodle-topped, cheesy creation at the buffet and in to-go boxes. Traditional, thin crust, and deep dish pizzas, dotted with toppings such as jalapenos, Italian-style sausage, and pineapple, pair with garden salads, garlic breadsticks, and apple dessert pizza, all of which may be feasted on at home or as a part of the appetizing buffet.
The dough-wielding dynamos at Gumby's Pizza expertly spin and slice hearty pizzas and cheese-covered breadsticks, accommodating late-night eaters with a 3 a.m. closing time Thursdays through Saturdays. Fourteen-inch pies, laden with sauce and dotted with a topping of the diner's choice, sail to tables with a grace matched only by pepperoni-covered ballerinas. Chefs speckle melted mozzarella with fresh mushrooms, bacon, feta cheese, or another of more than 25 available toppings. Alternatively, patrons can opt for a large order of the golden-brown Pokey Stix, composed of the pizzeria's signature garlic bread, topped with parmesan cheese, and served with a savory double-team of dips. As feasts bubble in the oven, guests wile away the time with pool, air hockey, or gravity-defying ceiling soccer. While not included with this Groupon, desserts, salads, and cold brews are also available.
In 1958, two brothers from Texas opened the first Pizza Inn, where they began assembling their signature pizzas out of cracker-thin crusts, tangy sauce, and generous piles of cheese. By 1994, the small, family-run restaurant grew into a sought-after franchise that was named No. 1 Pizza Chain in the United States by Restaurants & Institutions Magazine, as described on Pizza Inn?s About Us page. With the help of the world?s largest rolling pin, Pizza Inn?s doughy empire has stretched across more than 310 national and international locations. Although they still rely on time-honored pizza-making traditions that have lasted more than 50 years, the franchise?s chefs still make bold strides in new recipes, as evident in their bacon-cheeseburger pizza with beef, lean bacon, mustard, and pickles.
