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 deal leaves delicate pie creation to the professionals: for $6, you get $15 worth of pizza, sandwiches, wings, and more at Cloverleaf Pizza. This Groupon can be used for take-out from Cloverleaf's St. Clair Shores or Clinton Township locations, but is not valid at the location in Eastpointe.
Cloverleaf's pride and joy is its deep-dish square pizza. These right-angled rations can be customized with your choice of toppings ($10.99 for a large, $1.59 per topping) or effortlessly enjoyed in specialty varieties such as the Greek, crowned with ham, red onion, black olives, tomatoes, and feta ($14.99 for a large). Or opt for the veggie, which is incidentally coated in mushrooms, red onion, green pepper, and black olives ($14.99 for a large). If you like your pies the way you like your contact lenses—without sharp corners and smothered with hot cheese—Cloverleaf offers round pizzas with all of the same fancy fixins ($9.99 for a large, $1.59 per topping). Fill in any gaps in your gastronomic pyramid with an order of hot, barbecue, or Italian baked wings ($4.99 for a half pound), cheesy breadsticks ($4.99), a fresh tossed salad ($4.99 for a small, $7.99 for a large), or a cinnamon zeppole ($3.99), an elephant-ear-style dessert.
Since Cloverleaf Pizza's specialty square pies debuted in 1946, the restaurant has not only secured its conceptual spot in Detroit's manual of pizza style, but also its cleverly disguised spot in many schoolboys' Trapper Keepers. Call ahead to have a pizza prepared and pick it up for movie night with a date.
This Groupon is not valid with other offers or toward delivery or shipping pizzas.
FOX 2 News featured the South of the Border breakfast pizza by Cloverleaf Pizza. The Detroit Free Press and Metro Times mention the restaurant, while nearly 470 CityVoters give the restaurant an average of five stars:
- The children of founder Gus Guerra have carried on his spirit and the family's wonderfully rustic square, thick-crust pizzas in this popular Eastpointe haunt. Guerra, aided by his mother-in-law, is credited with serving the first square, Sicilian-style pizza in Detroit in 1946. Today the savory, long-simmered sauce, the cheesy-crunchy edges and the classic thick crust still delight us. It's so old-school -- but it's still so right. – Sylvia Rector, Detroit Free Press
