The most common Internet password is “pizza123,” demonstrating America’s love for this Italian delight, as well as its complete inability to protect sensitive information. Dine on circular cuisine even tastier than giant cheese wheels and fleeing Pac-Men with today’s Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of pizza, pasta, drinks, and more at Candelari’s Pizzeria, one of CityVoters and Click2Houston's Best top picks for Best Pizza. This Groupon is valid for the locations in Cypress, Katy, and Missouri City.
At the heart of every dish on Candelari's menu—including its signature thin- ($17–$22), thick- ($18–$23), and deep-dish-style ($19–$24) pizzas—are the famous Italian-sausage recipes of Alberto Candelari, all of which are made with choice meat, natural spices, and hints of liqueur. The T-Rex's spread of pepperoni, ground sirloin, useless forearms, Canadian bacon, and Candelari’s andouille and original Italian sausages lets you sample all of the finest meat-fruits of Candelari Sausage Company founders Greg Wheeler and “King of Sausages” Michael May (Alberto’s grandson). Build up to its bounty beforehand with a plate of sausage misto ($7), which features grilled Italian, turkey-jalapeño, and chicken-apple sausages piled atop provolone polenta. Diners that look suspiciously like flocks of seagulls inside a trench coat can find out what a grilled salmon ($14) tastes like when complemented by gulf shrimp, lemon-caper butter sauce, and veggies. Otherwise, avoid all the menu botheration and opt for the daily lunch buffet ($9–$9.50), which includes unlimited pizza, pasta, salad, and a drink.
All three Candelari's Pizzeria locations have a kids’ menu, and the Missouri City location even boasts a new playground whose swings have been reprogrammed to stop stealing kids' lunch money. Bring the fam, a Groupon, and—if you must—your beard of bees to Candelari's Pizzeria.
