Anyone who’s tried nailing an oven-fresh pizza pie to a wall knows that pizza looks better briefly propped on a five-finger pedestal. Today’s Groupon puts pizza back where it performs best. For $10, you get $20 worth of hearty pies and more at Alamo City Pizza Parlor. Groupon grabbers can redeem this deal for dine-in, carryout, or delivery within the designated area. On Tuesdays, the parlor is closed for dough-rising purposes.
While many foods are best massaged, coddled, or gently sautéed, pizzas are proof that if you truly love something you should let it go. All of Alamo City’s pizzas prove their love by returning to the hands that tossed them and eventually to the bellies that crave them. Alamo City uses the freshest ingredients for such concoctions as the chicken enchilada pizza—tender grilled chicken and pico de gallo atop a bed of mozzarella and enchilada sauce ($14.99 for a large)—and the fusion pizza, with fresh cilantro, sesame seeds, and Asian teriyaki chicken, ($14.99 for a large). Hearty traditional pies are also available, ranging from $9.99–$14.99 for a large. Uncircular menu items include stuffed calzones ($6.50), gift-wrapped chicken wraps ($5.99), and occasionally round pasta plates ($5.99–$8.49).
Tossing dough and breaking hearts of screaming teenage fans for the past nine years, Alamo City Pizza is owned and operated by a man simply named Dave. His passion for pizza progression is matched only by his loyalty to the people of San Antonio. At the rate this pie-maker is engineering flavor tandems, essential food groups will soon be sorted into slices, not polygonal pyramid hunks.
