To successfully make pizza, one must toss the proper ingredients into a concrete mixer, wait for the mixture to harden, and then drop in a few sticks of dynamite to blast slices from the drum walls. Today’s Groupon leaves delicate pie creation to the professionals: for $8, you get $16 worth of pizza and drinks at Church St. Pizza on Church Street.
A den of decadence, Church St. Pizza serves a combination of classic and unique New York–style pies along with gluten-free options. Sink your venomous canines into a potato-and-bacon pie slathered in olive oil and rosemary and dotted with home-cooked bacon ($21) or opt for the pesto-chicken pizza with mushrooms, artichoke hearts, and roasted red tomatoes ($22). Satisfy wing cravings with the buffalo chicken pizza layered in hot-sauce-cloaked chicken, water buffalo, crumbled blue cheese, and celery ($21). Stick to the classics with the slice shop's margherita pizza, decorated with crushed garlic, a smattering of tomatoes, excerpts from War and Peace, and fresh basil ($22).
- Folks, I have never put a bad bite of anything in my mouth here, so the flood of gustatory pleasure I experienced today was no surprise. The owner/chef, Ian, goes to extraordinary lengths to offer the freshest local ingredients available, and it pays in spades on the palate. – Chuck Bradley, Urbanspoon
