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 $10, you get $20 worth of New York–style pizza and casual Italian-American fare at Frank's Pizzeria in Candlewood. Buy up to two of today’s deal and double your cheesy intake.
This villa of victuals’ menu combines the very best of salivary-gland-provoking pies, salads, pastas, and deli subs to fill empty guts and internal combustion engines. Pizza was frequently cited in antiquity as heavenly manna that really complemented movie night; discover what the ancients knew with Frank’s plain ol' pies, which range from 12" ($8.69) to 16" ($12.54) and can be festooned with a glittering assortment of delicious toppings, such as fresh garlic, artichokes, and jalapeños ($1.60 each). Specialty pizzas run the gamut of kitsch, from the eggy breakfast pizza ($11.69–$15.24) to the gourmet white pizza ($11.69–$15.24), an elegant assemblage of mozzarella, ricotta, and garlic, with nary a drop of marinara to disrupt its minimalist aesthetic.
Frank's has plied Omahanians with authentic New York–style pizza and Italian-American fare for seven Earth years, or 0.028 Pluto years, if Pluto hadn't had its orbital powers stripped by the Worldwide Federation of Planets. Discophobes can rest easy with Frank's fine selection of non-elliptical fare, such as the individual calzone ($7.24), classic spaghetti and meatballs ($8.84), and baked ziti ($8.64). Eager eaters should save some space in their internal food-pockets for the New York–style cheesecake ($2.29/slice) or the decadent cannoli ($2.04 each), a dessert made famous by that one Sofia Coppola film where Al Pacino conquers his own ennui by mastering every recipe in Mario Batali's Molto Gusto.
