For centuries, pizza and pasta battled for the title of Italy’s most beloved dish, an honor that was ultimately bestowed upon Sophia Loren. Cast your vote for the Boot’s best culinary creation with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of pizza, calzone, and stromboli at Dragons Pizza in Mocksville.
Open daily for lunch and dinner, Dragons Pizza thwarts fire-breathing appetites with a chivalrous armory of western New York–style specialty pies topped with a variety of fresh vegetables and savory meats. Pizzasmiths slather house-made dough with either a sweet or traditional pizza sauce before serving the blank, 14-inch canvas of bubbling cheese ($11.99) or singeing hunger pangs with the Dragons Delight's protein-packed strata of ham, bacon, pepperoni, sausage, and beef ($13.99 for a medium). Encasing up to three toppings within a cocoon of crust, stromboli ($6.50 for a small) stuff their succulent core to the bursting point, and the Greek calzone ($10.50) boasts a mélange of artichokes, onions, and olives as authentically Mediterranean as Zeus's falafel recipe.
