Pizza has been the subject of more songs than any other food, as evidenced by Huey Lewis's "I Believe I Ordered This Without Mushrooms" and Beethoven's "Symphony No. 6 for My Brother Who Loves Pizza." Compose your own saucy sonata with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $25 worth of innovative pizzas, flavorsome martinis, and more at Blue Moon Pizza, with locations in Marietta and Smyrna.
Blue Moon Pizza's menu of clever, tempting entrees, including its crispy, thin-crust pizza and creative salads, has propelled the restaurant to the top of the pizza food pyramid. Boggle your seas with a Mediterribbean jerk-chicken pizza ($10.79 for personal), topped with caramelized onions and cayenne-candied bacon, or try to tame the spicy flavors of the Luna ($19.49 for medium), with chorizo sausage, black olives, and jalapenos. Other signature items include Grandma's Pizza ($24.99), a 16" Sicilian-style pie topped with cheese, olive oil, plum tomatoes, sliced garlic, and fresh basil, and the cobb salad ($10.49) served on pizza dough with chicken, avocado, cayenne-candied bacon, crumbled blue cheese, onions, black olives, and roma tomatoes. If the creative entrees leave any gastric gaps, a warm chocolate-chip cookie topped with vanilla ice cream ($4.99) should help achieve maximum satiation, or gargle your dessert with a cheesecake martini, concocted with Cruzan vanilla rum, pineapple juice, and cranberry juice (specialty martinis are $6 on Thursdays). Blue Moon also has a gluten-free menu. Lunchtime drop-ins can take advantage of Blue Moon's lunch special: two slices of cheese pizza and soda for $4.99.
Spend a lovely evening eating outdoors or within Blue Moon's stylish, dark-blue interior. Call ahead to find out when the restaurant holds its trivia night, and make sure to arrive early enough to claim a table, so you can school friends and silverware with a supreme, dominating knowledge of Soviet comic books and the tragic history of Rollerblades.
