Flavorsome ingredients and fresh, handmade dough marry in gourmet specialty pizzas such as Mr. C's Meat Lover's Stuffed Pizza Pie (pepperoni, salami, sausage, meatballs, beef, ham, and five cheeses, $18.49 for a 12-inch pie), the hot and spicy barbecue chicken ($12.49 for a 12-inch), and the vegetarian Pizza Bianca (Alfredo sauce, mozzarella, parmesan, romano, fresh basil, black pepper, and black olives, $11.49 for a 12-inch). Indulge in a plate of impeccably prepared pasta such as baked ziti ($10.99), or use this Groupon toward a family-sized portion of meat tortellini ($32.99 for four servings). Italian entree specialties include fettuccini Alfredo with shrimp ($9.99), spaghetti with clams tossed in either a light garlic-butter sauce or classic marinara ($10.99), and eggplant parmesan served with a side of spaghetti, garlic bread, and salad ($9.49). Subs, spicy wings, salads, and desserts round out the menu into a nicely round circle tastier than a traffic circle or rutabaga crop circle.

After spending years working for Dominos Pizza, Vince Schmuhl decided that he could do a better job of preparing and delivering quality pies to people's homes. He challenged the nationwide chain's dominance in the region by founding the first Blackjack Pizza on June 29, 1983.
Although delivering oven-fresh pies within 30 minutes was still a major goal for Schmuhl, he emphasized the importance of quality ingredients using sauce made from freshly packed tomatoes as well as hand-tossed dough that never sees the inside of a freezer or cryogenic chamber. This dedication to quality and speedy service allowed Blackjack Pizza to not only survive, but also thrive over the decades. The chain now includes more than 40 stores operating in four different states.
In addition to offering seven signature pies, Blackjack Pizza also allows customers to build their own order from crust to toppings. A choice of up to four savory, tangy, and piquant sauces form the base, topped with any of the 3 available cheeses, 7 meats, and 10 freshly diced vegetables. Regardless of the toppings, Blackjack Pizza respects the potential danger of food allergies by ensuring that none of its pies ever contain traces of MSG, peanuts, or peanut oil.
"The freshest pizza you'll ever eat." That's the motto of Live Basil Pizza, and just one visit turns that seemingly bold claim into a simple statement of truth. The sauce is made from organic San Marzano tomatoes that wouldn't give the time of day to canned tomato paste. The produce is typically sourced from local farmers and lacks that deep-freeze mush of franchise veggies. The meats are all natural, and the cheeses?including shredded mozzarella, aged provolone, goat cheese, and ricotta cheese?are milked from likable cows. And the basil that adorns LBP's picturesque pizza is grown right there in the restaurant.
Like picking a lobster from a tank, patrons can fully observe the freshness of their Neapolitan pie's journey from dough to plate. Hand-tossed and lovingly adorned with organic toppings, they're placed in a hearth oven until the flames have licked them to a perfect crisp, and arrive looking like they
were just plucked from a pizza tree.
Before they founded Double D's Sourdough Pizza, before they were married, before they'd even met each other, Ted and Cyndi were destined to succeed in the cheese, sauce, and dough business. Cyndi kicked off her pizza career as a teenager, and Ted transitioned from a delivery driver to a champion pie-maker, placing in the top three regionally in the World's Fastest Pizza Maker competition 15 years straight. So when they met in 1993 (at a pizza place, obviously), they knew exactly what they had to do.
The fruit of that union is a truly unique pizza joint, starting with the perfectly leavened, tangy crust. But that's only the beginning. Specialty pies find magic in defying tradition, with offerings such as the WoWee Maui, made with coconut, pineapple, almonds, and Canadian bacon, and the Loaded Baked Potato, zipped up with creamy ranch sauce, cheddar cheese, green onions, and bacon. Even when diners design their own meal, they're in for something special?they have an astounding range of sauces to choose from, including a spicy chili and lime, a creamy alfredo, and a sweet barbecue sauce.
