Like a flying saucer or poorly aimed frisbee, pizzas are not only aerodynamic, but great for bringing strangers closer together. Savor a close encounter with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of Italian fare at Caprio's Pizza in Palos Heights.
Caprio's Pizza professionals specialize in bedecking rounded rations with homemade sauce and fresh, generously sprinkled toppings. Peruse the menu and select a thin-crusted pie ($6–$17.95 with one topping) or stuffed pie ($14.70–$20.45 with one topping) to nourish friends or deliciously chart out next year's budget. Then, bedazzle your discus with toppings such as spinach, italian beef, canadian bacon, olives, or green peppers (additional toppings $0.75–$2.50 for thin, $1.75–$2.50 for stuffed). Those who prefer more angular entrees can opt for the italian chicken breast sandwich with marinara, sweet peppers, and mozzarella ($5.50), or the tortellini, meat- or cheese-stuffed pillows on which your choice of meatballs or sausage can lay their bulbous heads ($5–$8.25).
Choosy chewers can pick their dining perch; dine in Caprio's intimate, casual dining room—replete with cheery yellow walls, large picture windows, and a flat-screen TV—or opt for carryout and enjoy your meal in the comfort of your own abode or mole-proof underground bunker.
