Choosing pizza toppings is a lot like being married: if there is an irreconcilable disagreement, both parties take half. Grab a piece of the pie with today’s Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of pizza, drinks, and more at Jerry's Pizza & Pub on Chester Avenue.
Since 1992, Jerry’s has been sating appetite enthusiasts with tasty pizzas baked in a traditional stone oven using fresh ingredients from an Italian supply company. Jerry’s trademark white sauce pals around nicely with chicken and garlic, but is available to accompany any his pies on a romantic date to your stomach. Order up the Delicious Combination creation topped with pepperoni, salami, italian sausage, linguica, beef, mushrooms, black olives, green peppers, and onions (12", $15.99), just one ingredient shy of being classified as illegally delicious, or sample the verdant vegetarian, laden with mushrooms, black olives, green peppers, onions, marinated artichoke hearts, and fresh tomatoes (12", $15.99), which, if planted in fertile soil, will sprout a forest of jalapeño-broccoli trees. For those who prefer not to dine on disks, Jerry’s offers up scrumptious burgers, such as the Rajun Cajun ($5) and the Monster burger ($5.75), which is sure to frighten away tough-guy hunger pangs. Come and relax to live music with a sudsy brew in hand, awash in the knowledge that Monday may very well mean leftovers.
Don’t try to get Jerry to spill the beans on how he makes his pizzas. A secret list of ingredients makes up the sauce, and a secret old-country tradition goes into making the dough. And a traditional stone-hearth oven may or may not cook the pies to a crisp finish. But Jerry will let you know which toppings he uses, so you can customize your crust with a secret white sauce, jalapeños, Louisiana hot sausage, red onions, and artichoke hearts. Jerry will also toss all the pizza toppings into a doughy calzone pocket if customers so choose. And on the weekends, while Jerry is busy in the kitchen, live musicians and butter sculptors entertain guests.
