Though first used by Roman gladiators in ultimate-frisbee fatality matches, pizza became a culinary staple when an errant pie struck Caesar in the mouth and brought about a revelation. Honor the poor aim of a forgotten warrior with today’s Groupon: for $10, you get two large three-topping pizzas at Carmino’s Pizza (up to a $28.38 value). Choose between the following locations: Cleveland and Brecksville.
The pizza-making prodigies at Carmino’s cover their doughy palettes with generous layers of sauce and cheese before piling them high with succulent meats and crisp veggies, resulting in baked creations to appease enlightened taste buds. Myriad pie packers range from fan-favorite pepperonis, sausages, and green peppers to healthful heaps of broccoli, carrots, and zucchinis; or choose specialty toppings such as roasted red peppers and chicken. Customers conspiring to abscond the authoritarian reign of tomato sauce can choose between two tasty alternatives in garlic butter or butter sauce.
Since opening in 1965, Carmino’s Pizza has curated a casual and friendly ambience that invites customers to chomp on their golden slices past midnight on every day of the week and until 2:30 a.m. on Friday and Saturday. The dining room can also host late-night after parties or serve as a recovery ward for cheese-deprived insomniacs.
