If you've never had authentic California pizza, then what you think is pizza might in fact be a cunningly disguised pretzel. Today's Groupon clears up the confusion: for $15, you get $30 worth of pizza and drinks at Cool River Pizza in Noblesville.
Cool River's culinary captains set the course for pizza odysseys with a nautical menu of freshly prepared dough wheels for mealtime navigation. The Blue Rubber Raft pizza is built out of ground beef, cheddar cheese, bacon, and onions and can be used to ferry tourist pizza toppings across Lake Michigan ($10.99+). The Buffalo River pizza boasts a tributary of flavors with garlic-ranch sauce, buffalo chicken, red onions, and banana peppers ($10.99+). Pasta dishes––such as the italian-sausage marinara, chicken alfredo, and cheesy noodles––arrive with an armada of eight breadsticks ($12.99).
To entice a competitive appetite, Cool River Pizza's dining rooms are decked with large televisions that broadcast sporting events and board games that can be used to settle neighborly disputes about property lines.

Every day, the chefs at Cool River Pizza whip up a fresh batch of dough and bake it into pizzas, with gluten-free options available, topped with Real California Cheese and house-made sauce infused with more than seven herbs and spices. Freshly sliced vegetables and gourmet meats also crown specialty pies such as the Cool Ranch chicken, which plays hooky behind the oven to show off its ranch sauce and garlic chicken. To wash down the pies, pasta dishes, and salads, bartenders pour pints and pitchers of brews such as Coors Light, Sam Adams, and Blue Moon as diners watch sports games on large-screen TVs, play Wii on a 100-in. TV screen, hang out on the open patio, or live out fantasies of ancient gladiators' quiet evenings at home with a collection of board games.
