Like religion, economics, and politics, pizza is something everyone can agree on. Celebrate universal ideas with today’s Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of Italian fare and drinks at Gabriel’s Pizza in Cleveland.
Fluent in the culinary art of cheesy discus tossing, Gabriel Pizza's sporty staff hurls forth a multitude of signature pizzas crafted out of fresh dough and a soaring menu of Italian classics. The palate-popular Stockyard pizza sells the farm for a truckload of meats, extra cheese, and a wave runner that runs on tomato sauce ($17.76 for a 14”), and the Archangel Gabriel pizza watches over a kingdom of crunchy veggies, bacon, ham, sausage, pepperoni, and shrimp ($22.81 for a 14”). Traditional favorites include delectable pasta entrees such as Gabriel’s carbonara, an alfredo spaghetti dish laced with bacon and a light onion garnish ($4.49–$7.99). Half-moon calzones made with Gabriel Pizza’s signature dough generate waves of flavor with up to five toppings and a side of hot marinara ($5.99–$7.99), and piattos ($4.99+) provide an ultra-thin alternative to pies as deep as a pool.
In the midst of ever-multiplying chain eateries, Gabriel's Pizza embraces its status as a mom-and-pop pizza joint. Though the restaurant boasts patio seating and exposed-brick walls, owners Charley and Allen Eisenmenger generally avoid frills and instead focus on perfecting a menu that brings together New York’s thin-crust pizzas and Chicago’s deep-dish pies. Their fresh dough never sees the inside of a freezer or kitchen igloo, and it takes on a whole new layer of taste when chefs coat it with the restaurant's signature sauce. They top specialty pies with USDA-certified meats and produce largely sourced from a Charleston vendor, gracing dough with accessories ranging from classic pepperoni to rich artichoke hearts. The chefs also craft entrees such as baked spaghetti and ravioli.
