A cheese pizza is a blank canvas, just waiting to be decorated with pepperoni to symbolize life, onions to symbolize sorrow, and pineapple to symbolize fruit. Eat something meaningful with today's Groupon: for $6, you get $12 worth of pizza and pub grub at Generations Pizzeria in Wilmington.
Helmed by branches of the Steed family tree since 1962, Generations Pizzeria's copse of oven gurus craft a menu of custom and specialty pies, as well as hearty appetizers and hot sammies. Patrons can conquer one of seven specialty pizzas, such as the pineapple-speckled big hawaiian (12", $10.20) or the big hot pig pizza layered with ham, sausage, onions, and zesty peppers (12", $10.69) . Or tailor your own delectable disk ($6.49–$13.49) with such embellishments as bacon hunks and banana peppers ($0.90–$1.95/topping) for a culinary construction more inviting to the tongue than a Thomas Jefferson statue fashioned from Tootsie Pops.
Rather than stewing in a deep fryer or soaring too close to the sun until hubris prompts their downfall onto dinner plates, wings flutter from ovens freshly baked to order in flocks of 6 ($4.99) or 12 ($9.49). Otherwise, the Generator sandwich ensnares heaps of steak smothered in provolone cheese and Thousand Island dressing (8", $5.59; 10", $6.89) before a slice of turtle cheesecake corrals caramel, chocolate, and crushed almonds ($3.99) to conclude meat-centric feasts. With flat-screen TVs and tables that can accommodate sizable groups, Generations Pizzeria cultivates a lively yet relaxed sports-bar vibe. Or guests can exercise jaw muscles outdoors on the patio by competitively chewing their meals or phonetically pronouncing the license plates of cars taking out orders via the drive-thru window.
It was more than half a century ago that Kerry Steed's grandparents served the first slice at Generations Pizzeria. Today, Kerry continues the family legacy, doling out specialty pies, freshly made subs, and buttery garlic bread sticks to diners that pass through the bright pizzeria's door. The chefs toss their traditional and gluten-free crusts with gourmet ingredients such as fresh banana peppers, crispy bacon, and premium sausage. Awaiting pies and burgers in the dining room is a leisurely experience, with customers sitting in cushy booths, sipping frosty beers, and watching the game on glimmering flat-screen TVs.
