A cheese pizza is a blank canvas just waiting to be decorated with pepperoni to symbolize life, onions to symbolize sorrow, and pineapple to symbolize fruit. Eat something meaningful with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of pizza-parlor fare and drinks at BC’s Pizza & Beer in Clovis.
The chefs at BC’s Pizza and Beer sate hunger by prepping a menu of piping-hot pies flecked with 40 eclectic toppings and surrounded by a fleet of sandwiches, baked subs, and calzones. Pizzas anchor plates with diameters that range from 10 to 26 inches ($8–$41+), and sauces shade dough discs with hues of red, white, and pesto, the American flag’s original colors. Pre-arranged pies include the Volcano ($12.75+), a zesty mélange of salami, pepperoni, shrimp, and jalapeno peppers, and the Dude Ranch ($14.60+), which tantalizes taste buds with ranch dressing, beef, onions, and garlic. While tongues wrestle with the spinach, mushrooms, and artichoke hearts on vegetarian pesto pizzas ($14.60+), teeth work to sever the gooey ropes of mozzarella cheese. In addition to saucer-shaped fare, staffers also fill subs ($6.50) and calzones ($8.75) with sauce, meats, and vegetables in the shape of Leonardo Di Vinci’s Vitruvian Sandwich. To cool mouths between bites, bartenders pour 25 draught brews that include craft beers from the US and abroad.
BC’s Pizza & Beer’s dining area packs eaters into booths as comfy as the belly-filling food it slings. On the walls, dozens of mounted tap handles and microbrewery mirrors display the eatery’s appreciation for beers from around the world. While loitering at the bar, imbibers can bask in the glow of flat screen TVs, which stream a constant feed of sports and closed-circuit camera footage of other restaurants’ televisions.
BC's Pizza & Beer
Though pizza and beer are a time-honored combination, BC's Pizza & Beer puts a new spin on the tradition with innovative pizzas and an abundance of uncommon beers. As its chefs load crusts with inspired arrangements of more than 40 fresh toppings—such as jamaican jerk spices with chicken and shrimp or mexican refried beans with ground beef and jalapeños—bartenders dole out pints of German and Belgian beers. At their fingertips are 35 tap handles and more than 80 import and craft bottles.
Out in the dining room, beer signs and playful knickknacks hang on the walls. Flat-screen televisions broadcast sports games in which football players zoom down fields and Lifetime movies in which football players learn valuable lessons about the wisdom of children.
