When at-home dining options have dwindled to canned hams, number 2 pencils, and buttons, a suitable outside eatery is called for. Today's Groupon feeds your frownful face: for $15, you get $30 worth of pizza and drinks at Humble Pie. Your Groupon is redeemable at either the Scottsdale or the Desert Ridge location.
Humble Pie serves up a fresh menu of pizza and Italian-inspired fare made from locally sourced ingredients by a locally sourced staff. Start with an order of the crispy calamari ($9.95) and savor the complex cephalopodic flavor of the ocean's most intelligent invertebrate enhanced by a basil-chili dipping sauce. Otherwise, show off the sexy results of months of mouth-Pilates with a strawberry and gorgonzola salad, an organic greens-based bundle topped with candied pecans and balsamic vinaigrette ($5.95/$10.95). Entrees at the eatery include various pastas ($8.95–$10.95), pressed paninis ($7.95–$9.95), and personal gourmet pizzas, such as the prosciutto and pear pie loaded with gorgonzola and topped with arugula ($12.95), or the egg pizza ($12.95), with an organic, sunny-side-up egg plopped in the center of the prosciutto-and-smoked-mozzarella-topped dough disc.
Humble Pie's warm and inviting eateries allow any group of merry minstrels to marvel at the crackling wood-fired oven, or to sip on a glass of one of its cellar's many hand-selected wines. If you're a vino-virgin, the restaurant's friendly staff will happily recommend the perfect cabernet, chardonnay, or pinot noir for making a dull dining companion funnier, wittier, and more attractive. Call ahead to make a reservation, or deliver it via town crier.
This Groupon is dine-in only & not valid for happy hour.

There's nothing humble about Humble Pie's pizza crust: Pulled from wood-fired ovens with a light, bubbly texture that crisps at lightly charred edges, it cracks to release a subtle aroma of smoke and yeast. For owner Tom Kaufman, the recipe demanded two months of tinkering and one month of building an underground vault to keep it from prying eyes. Customers tend to think the time was worth it as they bite into delicate slices topped with careful combinations of veggies, meats and cheeses, often locally sourced.
The potato-and-roasted-garlic pizza, for example, happily marries the fragrances of gorgonzola and rosemary. Retaining a botanical touch even on a meat-lover's pie, the Schreiners Sicilian Sausage sprinkles homemade mozzarella with "sprigs of roasted fennel [that] add another aromatic dimension," according to Phoenix New Times.
While the pizza may push some of the other menu items out of the limelight, fresh salads, grilled sandwiches, and traditional and twisted pastas earnestly pine for appetites' affections. The Our Way Mac & Cheese adds aged white cheddar, italian bacon, and bread crumbs, distinguishing itself from its boxed brethren while forming an equally fun medium for kids' art projects, while wine, beer, and seasonal cocktails pair well with plates and pies alike.
