Pizza originated in ancient circles of nobility, where popular toppings included caviar, gold-plated pepperoni, and dodo-bird feathers. Enjoy modern upper-crust slices with today's Groupon: for $9, you get $18 worth of gourmet pizza, salads, and sandwiches at Amici's Pizza in Birmingham.
Amici's kitchen artisans wield hand-grated cheese, fresh ingredients, and scratch-made sauce to assemble the menu’s slew of piping-hot pies, earning Best Gourmet Pizza accolades from Metro Times readers in 2010. Savor a specialty pizza ($15.79 for a 12"; $18.25 for a 14") such as the smoked salmon, which tops its eponymous fish with rivers of sour cream, scallions, and low-fat cheese, or the vegan pizza, whose fresh herb-tomato sauce and pesto play hide-and-seek with plum tomatoes, roasted garlic, and broccoli playmates in a dairy-free landscape. Chefs can also sprinkle custom pizza orders with traditional toppings such as pepperoni, olives, and italian sausage ($10.51 for a 12", $1.53/topping; $12.98 for a 14", $1.76/topping).
For all pie varieties, traditional, whole-wheat, thin, or gluten-free crusts are shaped to 12-inch or 14-inch sizes before being popped in the oven or installed as replacement wheels on the restaurant’s unicycle. The kitchen staff also slathers original sandwiches in homemade sauces such as cranberry-poppy-seed mayo ($5.74 each) and hire bandana-wearing guerrilla bunnies to raid local gardens for greens to make six varieties of salads ($6.30–$8.04).
