Ninety percent of alleged UFO sightings can be easily explained as falling meteors, swamp-gas reflections, or doughy orbs hurled into orbit by Herculean pizza makers. Enjoy earthbound eats with today's Groupon: for $12, you get $25 worth of pizza and international fare at Segundo in Portsmouth.
Segundo's chefs serve Italian fare with an international twist. A cluster of roasted beets frolic through a tangerine vinaigrette with chévre goat cheese, petite arugula, and toasted walnuts ($8). Traditional Italian entrees, such as lasagna ($10.99) and chicken parmesan ($10.99), can warm up the palates of those who refuse to swallow a solar panel. The kitchen also turns out a caucus of vegetarian pizzas and pies featuring flavors from cities around the world, including the Mexico—a pie topped with beef chorizo, onion, tomato, hot peppers, and salsa verde ($14.99)—and the Creole-style New Orleans pizza, with shrimp, sausage, and peppers ($14.99).
The Pizza Box
Cooks at The Pizza Box hand toss fresh dough into a base for each of their 70 different pie variations, and it's that kind of dedication to diverse dough disks that earned them silver in the HamptonRoads.com's 2012 Best of Hampton Roads. The topping combinations range from internationally inspired blends such as the France—with potato, rosemary, and goat cheese—to the Morocco, which has figs, falafel, chicken, and cucumber. They also make domestic-inspired pies like the California, a blend of squash, sundried tomato, and mozzarella the exact shade of white as the snow atop the Sierra Nevada Mountains.
