Pizza is ubiquitous in American culture, thanks solely to its ability to double as a fraction calculator. Indulge in a numerator with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of gourmet pizza and Italian fare at Guido's Pizza Pies. This Groupon is valid for dine-in and carryout.
The pie purveyors at Guido's Pizza Pies command a menu anchored in fresh, New York–style circular cuisine that augments hot sandwiches ($7.69), calzones ($9.99), and other classic Italian entrees. Each day, kitchen artisans knead a fresh, doughy canvas on which they paint edible portraits with made-from-scratch sauce speckled with herbs and spices. Before the discs bake in an authentic NYC-style stone deck oven, patrons pick their toppings or leave the decision up to dice, tarot cards, or the never-indecisive Hulk Hogan. Proven favorites, the signature pizza pies twirl spaghetti and meatballs on the Mama Mia or cater to carnivores with My Cousin Guido's hamburger and bacon bits ($17.99 for a large). Create-your-own pie ($18.36 for three toppings) beckons architectural diners to embellish large, 16-inch traditional or wheat-crust foundations with pineapple, sausage links, or eggplant toppings.
Owner and New Jersey expatriate Teresa Russo perpetuates her family's Italian roots by adhering to generational recipes and accommodating guests' special dietary needs. She enthusiastically welcomes families with children and kindly discourages visits by families with bear cubs for children. Russo also takes pride in eschewing MSG, preservatives, and saturated oils across the entire menu, in addition to proffering whole-wheat and gluten-free crust options.
Groupon holders intending to use a Groupon on a Friday night should call ahead, as wait times at this popular eatery sometimes stretch up to 2 hours during peak times.
