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 $10, you get $20 worth of pizza, pasta, and sandwiches at JB's Pizza Parlor.
The chefs at JB's Pizza Parlor, which was praised for its pies in a 2008 issue of the Grand Rapids Press, toss gourmet disks strewn with innovative toppings and plate an eclectic lineup of oven-baked pastas and sandwiches. Fourteen specialty pizzas ($13.49 for 12"; $15.99 for 14") don tailored selections of delectable add-ons, including the creamy garlic-chicken pizza's roasted red peppers, artichoke, and chicken, and The Godfather pizza's meatballs stake out turf on pepper jack cheese, unleashing gangs of capicola and roma tomatoes to ensure the pepperoncinis don't leak the location of their latest basil score. Guests can festoon a custom pan-style pie ($7–$10 for 10"–16") with such toppings as mandarin oranges, broccoli, and pineapple (+$0.75–$1.50/topping). For 3-D edibles, diners can sink their teeth into the ravioli, which encases portobello mushrooms and ricotta cheese ($6.99), or grab a french dip sandwich ($6), which high-dives off patrons' palms into a side of au jus. Guests can take their meals to go, or chew in-house while surfing JB's WiFi network to order pepper flakes in gallon buckets.
