Like a piñata, a pizza is packed with a myriad of flavors that are most enjoyed by those with quick reflexes and a jumpsuit concealing plastic-lined storage compartments. Revel in strategic eating with today’s Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of pizza and hearty fare at Baldinelli’s Pizza Place in Hinsdale.
A neighborhood mainstay for more than 30 years, Baldinelli’s Pizza Place kneads fresh ingredients into customizable pies that delight pizza lovers of all topping persuasions. The menu’s cadre of thin crust pizzas arrive in a variety of sizes and styles, and crusts can be modified to match customers’ dough-dispositions, be it extra-thin, double-thick, or sensitive despite a crusty exterior. Three to four diners can ban together to equip a medium pizza with three titanic toppings ($20.50) catalyzing creative combinations such as hot giardiniera with meatball and basil or opt for a restaurant-crafted recipe such as the barbecue chicken blast. Bread-coveting carnivores can find companionship with a variety of hearty subs, including the Katherine Grace, piled high with roast beef, hot pepper cheese, and onions ($5.50), or the Shannon Elizabeth, which gallantly supports towering troves of turkey, salami, and pepperoncini ($5.50).
Today’s Groupon is also good toward delivery (additional $2.50 charge, delivery only after 5 p.m.) in Hinsdale, Claredon Hills, and Western Springs counties, allowing drained diners to enjoy an epicurean refueling in the comfort of their homes while testing the effectiveness of their alligator-filled moats.
Baldinelli's Pizza Place
For more than 20 years, the sauce slingers at Baldinelli Pizza have been spinning out thin-crust pies, italian subs, and hearty pastas. More than 20 vegetable and meat toppings lounge on pizzas, the circumferences of which range from 7 inches for individual pies to 18 inches for pizzas large enough to bid to host the Olympics. Subs layer ham, salami, and turkey with provolone, tomato, and onions to create thick sandwiches that can be eaten cold or toasted. Homemade meat or marinara sauces lather up pastas such as mostaccioli, and meatballs perch atop noodle tangles before the lifting of a golden Chachapoyan idol releases them to thunder down slopes and into mouth tunnels.
