Though spinning massive amounts of dough above one's head is an amusing way to display a coin collection, it requires superhuman stamina to maintain. Rest your triceps and leave the dough-spinning to the pros with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of brick-oven pizza, apps, and more at any one of Buckhead Pizza Co.’s three locations: in town on Peachtree Road, in Cumming on Peachtree Parkway, and in Buford on Buford Drive. This Groupon is only valid for dine-in lunch or dinner.
Buckhead Pizza tosses pies high in the sky with ambitious ingredients and appetizing accompaniments from flavorful sides and entrees. The dinner menu gracefully waltzes palates through starters such as stone-baked garlic shrimp dressed in garlic butter and parmesan ($8.95) and signature grilled jumbo chicken wings slathered in garlic, lemon juice, extra virgin olive oil, and sautéed onions ($8.95). But much like the sun in most medieval Italian conceptions of the cosmos, Buckhead's board of fare revolves around classic pizzas baked in a brick oven, such as the Buckhead ($18 for a medium)—topped in pepperoni, mushrooms, sausage, onions, ham, bell peppers, ground beef, and tomatoes—or the unconventional BBQ chicken ($17.50 for a medium), amplified by ample amounts of grilled, marinated chicken, and tangier-than-tango barbecue sauce. All pizzas are born daily from fresh, handmade dough available using either classic flour or hearty whole wheat. Diners who've already had pizza for lunch, breakfast, all three of yesterday's meals, and in an ill-conceived milkshake form can instead content themselves with hot hoagies, calzones, and flatbread sandwiches ($5.50–$9.75 each), as well as green-laden salads ($7.95+ for full size).
As noshers nibble and savor their delectable edibles, Buckhead’s staff keeps the dining hall's walls a-hum with a variety of fun events. All three locations host trivia night on Wednesday nights. And on select nights, diners can soundtrack their meals with delightful live music performances. A few specialty martinis from the bar ($7 each), meanwhile, will keep first-date conversations flush with flirtation and free of awkward pauses or sentences that begin with "My cat did the funniest thing yesterday…."

Buckhead Pizza Co.
At Buckhead Pizza Co.'s two locations kitchens bustle as chefs simmer house-made sauce and bake Atlanta-style thin-crust pizzas to a golden brown in 500-degree ovens. They toss fresh regular, whole-wheat, and gluten-free dough and make each pie to order before covering it in signature toppings such as Atlanta steak with caramelized onions and blue cheese. The charming pizzeria also fills cherry-wood tables with crispy flatbreads, calzones, and bubbling pans of lasagna.
Diners take a break from the sun and his unreasonable demands for pizza sacrifices under the outdoor patio's awning, enjoying breezy sunset dinners or cocktail hours filled with frosty brews from shared pitchers and red and white wines from the full bar. Back inside, diners stay entertained by participating in trivia or watching as many games as eyeballs will allow on the eatery's many televisions.
