Pizza, like the sun, is hot, bubbly, and plays a critical role in sustaining life on earth. Revel in pizza's gravitational pull with today’s Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of Italian fare and more at Home Style Pizza in Schenectady.
Home Style Pizza's Sicilian-style dinners and piping-hot pizzas have been making a home in local mouths for the past 35 years. The shop’s extensive menu is anchored by its circular selection, including the homestyle specialty pizza, a crispy canvas festooned with pucillo sauce, juicy sausage, and pepperoni ($16.99 of a 16"). Specialty pies such as the chicken-wing pizza marry grilled chicken and hot-wing sauce under a creamy blue-cheese awning ($18.99), and the scrambled-egg-topped breakfast pizza perks up patrons more effectively than a blaring alarm clock stuck behind a dresser.
Accessorize hands with hearty ciabatta subs ($6.29), deli sandwiches ($6.29), and toasted paninis ($7.99), or calibrate taste buds to the measurement of traditional pasta dinners such as eggplant parmigiana ($12.49) and lasagna ($11.99). Cap off the main course or bribe a sweet-toothed city-council member with creamy, flaky cannoli, cheesecake, and italian butter cookies.
Home Style Pizza
In 1972, family patriarchs Andrea and Rina Adonnino and Anthony and Ida Bennice opened the doors of Home Style Pizza, and it's been a fundamental fixture of their families ever since. To pair with a menu of authentic Italian dishes, the Sicilian-style café is strewn with display cases installed by Rossi Dimensions of Pesaro, Italy. In the kitchen, skilled chefs employ combinations of 20 toppings to coat thick pan pizzas that are baked inside real brick ovens—far more filling than those baked inside a mime’s invisible “oven.” Customers can enjoy a hot or cold sub sandwich on the outdoor patio, or they can nosh on a calzone, a stromboli wrap, or hearty pasta in marinara, light rosa, or pesto cream sauce.
