Anyone who’s tried nailing an oven-fresh pizza pie to a wall knows that pizza looks better briefly propped on a five-finger pedestal. Today's Groupon puts pizza back where it performs best: for $6, you get a large Northcoast double sausage pizza at Donatos (a $12.99 value).
Open since 1963, Donatos peddles its doughy, cheese-covered delicacies in nearly 200 stores across five states. The Northcoast Double Sausage Pizza is the newest creation from Donatos thin crust sooth-sayers. The pie balances savory forces with both Donatos family recipe sausage and mild Italian sausage undulating on a taste-bud teeter-totter. Stitched together with a mélange of provolone, mozzarella, and cheddar cheeses, the pizza is blanketed by a patchwork of caramelized onions and banana peppers. See the sidebar for a list of all 18 participating Donatos locations.
