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 casual Italian fare at Big Lou's New York Style Pizzeria.

The expert dough slingers at Big Lou's whip up selections from a menu of pasta dinners, italian subs, and pizzas with New York–style crusts. Guests grab single slices ($3+) or select full-size helpings of more than 14 specialty pizzas, including the Big Lou's House Special ($10.99–$19.99) topped with fresh tomato, imported prosciutto, and ricotta cheese that, like the Roman Coliseum, looks more classical when shot on black-and-white film. Diners can urge pizza artisans to artfully adorn the circular tapestry of a cheeseburger pizza ($10.99–$19.99) with meatballs and bacon or pick from more than 40 custom meat, veggie, and cheese toppings to pile onto custom pies ($7.50+). Pasta dinners kick off with savory layers of meat lasagna ($10.99), and baked dough rolls over mozzarella cheese and fillings for stromboli ($8.99+). Live tunes fill the air Thursday–Saturday as eaters deconstruct edible circles inside a casual dining area or tear up lush foliage on a patio until it can be used as oregano.

Big Lou's New York Style Pizzeria

According to their menu, Big Lou's chefs pledge allegiance to Italy's cuisine, but they prefer the way New Yorkers cook it. They bring this distinctive style of pizza to sunny Florida, rolling out paper-thin crusts topped with heaps of gooey cheese and savory toppings—including gorgonzola, hot sauce, tempeh, and meatballs. The staff serves their red and white New York-style pizzas by the steaming-hot pie or in monstrous slices, and guests can choose to customize their own gourmet pizza with a subset of more than 30 toppings. As calzones and Stromboli bubble up in ovens, chefs also create hot and cold subs, as well as a short list of carefully crafted timeless Italian dishes. Baked ziti, stuffed shells, and lasagna emanate ambrosial scents on the casual eatery's classic red-and-white checkered tablecloths—there's no reason not to use pieces of lasagna as checkers. Outside, alternatively, an expansive patio hosts live bands on the weekends.
