According to various new religious groups, pizza is a form of spiritual technology cleverly designed to lure misplaced body thetans out of hiding with melty cheese and zesty sauce. Send inter-dimensional hitchhikers packing with today's Groupon. For $10, you get $20 worth of pizza, other Italian fare, and drinks at Hyde Park Pizzeria, located on Erie Avenue.
Hyde Park Pizzaria specializes in NY-style pies, baked to crispy, thin-crust perfection in brick ovens. Chefs produce fresh, homemade dough daily for their pizzas and top them with the freshest ingredients, including tomatoes so alive they frequently escape from the store and hurl themselves at unfortunate actors. Pizzas range from $6 for a small plain (9”) to $11 for a large plain (15”). You can also order up the brood-pleasing plain family size (14”x18”) for $14. All your favorite toppings, from pepperoni to jalapeno peppers, are available for extra. Specialty pies range from $8.50 for a small to $16.50 for a large, or $19.75 for family size. The Meat Supreme comes loaded with the fruit of the beasts: tons of pepperoni, sausage, ham, bacon, and extra cheese. You can order up a rival pizza with the Veggie Supreme, holding mushrooms, onions, green peppers, tomatoes, green olives, and extra cheese. The Meatball comes with homemade meatballs, and the Deluxe Seven features a most-wanted combo of pepperoni, sausage, mushrooms, onions, green peppers, bacon, and extra cheese. It is certifiably the most delicious number-based food, except possibly algebra flash cards dipped in marinara.
The Hyde Park menu also offers a wide range of hoagies, pastas, wings, fish, salad, and desserts. Sandwiches include the Steak ($6) with homemade specialty pizza sauce, mozzarella, pickles and onions; the homemade Meatball ($6.75); and the never-ending layers of the Dagwood ($6). Pasta dishes include homemade lasagna ($6.75), chicken parmesan ($7), and the completely unexpected, and therefore irresistible, chili and spaghetti ($6). The friendly, customer-service-oriented staff at Hyde Park makes it a welcome destination to enjoy a casual meal or unselfconsciously weep with joy over a perfect slice of pepperoni.
