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, wings, and sandwiches at Boulevard Pizza in Sparks.
In keeping with a more than 40-year tradition, Boulevard Pizza's culinary crew forges dough from scratch in a vintage mixer before dousing each thin-crust round with house-made tomato sauce. After taking a gander at the menu and consulting with a specialized soothsayer, pie tacticians customize 12-inch pizzas ($11.49) with a choice of 20 fresh toppings ($1.05 each) such as italian salami, shrimp, cheddar, or pineapple. Specialty pizzas showcase a pre-plotted landscape of flavors and include the produce-packed vegetarian ($19.69 for 15") and the western cheeseburger, which is slathered in Bull's-Eye barbecue sauce and festooned with bacon, ground beef, and red onion ($15.69 for 12"). An order of 10 hot wings ($6.99) marinates for 24 hours in a cayenne-pepper sauce, just as Icarus did when training to fly closer to the sun, and 12-inch canadian-bacon heroes ($5.49) brim with lettuce, tomato, and a special house sauce.
