Pizza is traditionally circular, as its original octagonal shape caused patrons to simply stare at it and wait for the diner on their right to move. Pave your throat’s thoroughfare with cheese with today’s Groupon: for $24, you get a pizza meal at Jojo’s Pizza Kitchen (up to a $45.30 total value). This Groupon is valid at the locations in La Habra, Mission Viejo, Chino Hills, and Mira Loma. The pizza-meal package serves two to four and includes the following:
- One large one-topping pizza (a $21.45 value)
- One serving of marinara spaghetti (a $7.95 value)
- Pull-apart breadsticks (a $5.95 value)
- A choice of one of the following:

Guided by the uncompromisingly high culinary standards of Bonafede-family matriarch Anita, Jojo’s Pizza Kitchen whips up a menu of classic Italian comfort fare forged from quality ingredients such as hand-tossed dough, Stanislaus County plum tomatoes, and fresh basil. Diners embark upon gustatory sojourns with a starter course of pull-apart breadsticks—gilded with garlic butter and romano cheese—whose pillowy planes enable simple division without asking to borrow the server’s slide rule. A serving of marinara spaghetti fans the flames of prandial second winds while a large pizza is made fresh-to-order with a choice of one topping such as canadian bacon or fresh zucchini. Keep talk boxes hydrated with sips of domestic beer or wine. Between synchronized bites of pizza, diners can peak through a dining room window and glimpse kitchen chefs tossing freshly risen dough and preparing dishes with the help of self-aware cartoon utensils.
JoJo's Pizza Kitchen
Bonafede-family matriarch Anita started JoJo's Pizza Kitchen more than four decades ago, and her discerning taste for ingredients is still identifiable in the menu. Though her son Joe, who napped on flour sacks in the back of the restaurant as a child, now runs the eatery, fresh basil and plum tomatoes grown in Stanislaus County still release aromas that hint at sun-soaked furrows. Through a dining room window, guests catch glimpses of chefs tossing freshly risen dough for pizzas or smaller chefs for their adorable giggles. They grate fresh parmesan cheese as wine cooks slowly down with mushrooms on the stovetop and chicken marinates in lemon and garlic. Servers bustle past, filling glasses with house wines or draft beers.
