For centuries, pizza and pasta battled for the title of Italy’s most beloved dish, an honor that was ultimately bestowed upon Sophia Loren. Cast your vote for the Boot’s best culinary creation with today’s Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of pizza at Brick 3 Pizza.
The dough wranglers at Brick 3 Pizza slather New York–style crusts with savory sauces and fresh toppings to create unique specialty pies, as well as a menu of sandwiches, calzones, and desserts. Mouth stalagmites can hog a singular slice ($2.92+) or rip into a 14-inch pie ($11.95+) housed under mountains of mozzarella cheese and trimmed with toppings such as pepperoni, olives, or roasted red peppers ($1.50–$3.50 each). Dressed in a saucy red gown, fresh pasta marries its longtime sweetheart in a destination wedding atop the mostaccioli and meatballs pizza ($3.68/slice; $14.95 for 14” pie) while cheese frolics like a happy-go-lucky goatherd on the pasture of pesto, portabella mushrooms, kalamata olives, and sundried tomatoes making up the goat-cheese special pie ($4.43/slice; $19.45 for 14” pie). Owners of fumbling fingers can avoid shirt-staining shenanigans with a calzone’s protective fortress of buttery crust ($6.25–$7.50) or by never leaving the house without donning a plastic sofa cover.
Brick 3 Pizza
Brick 3 Pizza’s chefs make their pies so easily accessible, it’s a wonder the city’s residents are eating anything else. While most pizza places are content to deliver their pies to doorsteps, Brick 3 Pizza offers eat-in, delivery, catering, and curbside service for clients craving their menu of specialty New York-style pizzas. The shop’s doors even stay open until 4 a.m. on weekends, allowing barhoppers to finish their night with a slice of mac ‘n’ cheese, mostaccioli-and-meatballs, or pesto-chicken pizza. Brick’s gigantic 34-inch extra-large pizza is a meal boon for guests with a lot of mouths to feed or as bait to catch Sylvester Stallone. Alongside their pizzas, the staff creates handheld calzones and traditional desserts such as cannoli and cheesecake.
