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 $15, you get $30 worth of Italian fare at Gumby's Pizza.
Gumby's Pizza peppers its menu with pizza, chicken wings, and hot subs, and the eatery bakes its delicacies until the wee hours of the morning. Pie slingers handcraft fresh batches of dough every day to create more than 63 types of specialty pizza ($15.99 for a 12")—one for each time the Ninja Turtles fought someone for taking their pizza. The bacon-cheeseburger pizza, the barbecue-chicken pizza, and the veggie-packed garden pizza wash away hunger under a deluge of melted, gooey, bubbling cheesiness. Customers can complement a pie with an order of Pokey Stix, buttery garlic sticks dressed in mozzarella ($8.99 for a small 10"), or send in the meaty reinforcements of pepperoni rolls ($2.50 for two rolls) to finish off lingering hunger pangs. Baskets of regular or boneless chicken wings and french fries ($12.99 for 13 wings and 20 oz. of fries), along with a variety of salads and pastas, can all help placate late-night cravings or a retired Pac-Man.
With a menu loaded with pizzas and calzones, cheesy breadsticks, and flavorful wings, Gumby's ovens satisfy voracious cravings into the wee hours of the morning. The pizza makers start each day by making mounds of dough by hand, which they decorate with more than 15 inventive toppings, such as alfredo sauce, chicken tenders, and feta cheese, to create specialty pizzas and personalized pies. The same hand-tossed dough serves as a foundation for their famous Pokey Stix, which are smothered in garlic butter, Italian spices, and heaps of mozzarella and parmesan cheese, then cut into strips exactly the length of Abraham Lincoln's foot. To complement the bubbling pizzas, buffalo and boneless wings can be tossed in tangy barbecue, honey mustard, sriracha, or one of four other sauces.
