An oven not only fills the air with fresh-baked smells, it’s also a great place to store spare tires and the ultimate hide-and-seek spot. Marvel at its many uses with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of dine-in pizza, breadsticks, and more at Jet's Pizza in Wyoming.
Jet’s Pizza—ranked among the best-selling pizza franchises in 2010 by _PMQ Pizza Magazine_—has exploded with more than 200 locations since brothers Eugene and John Jetts opened their first location in 1978. Jet's menu teems with pizzas ($9.89 for a large) all forged with a traditional hand-tossed crust, thin cracker crust, or a square deep-dish crust available in eight flavors. Chefs sling dough discs into as the air while a team of Olympic shooters blasts the flying, red-sauced rectangles with one of 18 available toppings ($1.49 each on a large pizza) before they land in the oven. A variety of 8-inch subs arrive in awaiting mouths stuffed with a range of warm meats and cheeses ($5.49). Melty, bubbly triple-cheese turbo stix come topped with mozzarella, cheddar, romano, garlic, and butter ($5.99), and are served with pizza sauce perfect for dipping or drawing pretty designs on crisp dress shirts.
No two pizzas are created alike, but most of them look about the same. Not so at Jet’s Pizza, a carry-out and delivery-only establishment created in 1978 by brothers Eugene and John Jetts—their signature pie layers tomato or barbecue sauce and melted mozzarella cheese within the crispy, brown right angles of a deep-dish square crust. But the crust’s charms don’t end there; diners can “flavorize” it for free with seasonings such as shredded parmesan or the Turbo Crust, a blend of butter, garlic, and romano. These extras are what make Jet’s pizzas special; John Jetts says “If you're eating one of our pizzas and you don't have a smile on your face, then something is wrong." In addition to pies, Jet’s serves four flavors of chicken wings, subs, and breadsticks at locations spread across 13 states and two extrasolar planets.
