Fellini once said, “Life is a combination of magic and pizza,” which is why babies are frequently delivered by pizza-delivery boys. Nourish your élan vital with today’s Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of Italian fare at Campania Pizza’s Dallas or Southlake location.
The chefs at Campania Pizza fire up ingredients imported from Italy to compose authentic, wood-fired Neapolitan-style pizza, earning the restaurant Pizza Today’s 2008 U.S. Independent Pizzeria of the Year. Traditional mozzarella di bufala bubbles crown several items on the menu, including the quattro stagiono pizza ($10–$20), which accommodates genoa salami and ham on a bed of italian tomato sauce layered with cheese and tender artichokes. Pizza technicians concoct the margherita ($8–$16) with a less-is-more approach, dressing the crust in only extra-virgin olive oil and a sprinkle of fresh basil to prevent diners from blushing. Forks wrap themselves in angel hair, fettuccine, penne, or rigatoni pasta tossed with sauces including creamy alfredo and meaty bolognese ($11).
Campania’s locations are accented with modern mosaic tiles, which were hand-laid by Italian artisans. The Southlake location charms guests with a rooftop patio and live music five or six nights a week, welcoming events such as Sing for the Cure, a vocal marathon raising funds for cancer awareness, and performances by death-metal barbershop quartets.
