With fresh ingredients and real mozzarella, the piesmiths of Pazzo Pizza unfurl an enticing menu of savory Italian provender made from scratch. Baked in a rustic stone oven, each crispy pizza is born of hand-tossed dough and an infusion of family lore, like the Sicily-imported marinara recipe and the story about Grandma's eye patch, itself a pizza.

Though delivery is available, this Groupon does not cover the $2 delivery fee, which goes toward training homing pizzas.
