What You'll Get
Jump to: Reviews | 8-Bit Pizza
Climb atop a medium-sized meated and vegetabled cheese plateau and food-tromp among its flavors with this Groupon: $10 for a 12" medium-sized Chicago-style stuffed pizza with up to three toppings from Mangia Pizza. This Groupon is good on dine in and carry out (not delivery), and you get a free order of fries if you dine in.
Traditional thin-crust pizza might be good for sliding under doors or serving as a blanket to a turtle, but Mangia serves Chicago-style pizza, a deep-dish delight with a towering, buttery crust that embraces heaps of cheese and tomato sauce. The owner was a former OSHA inspector who inspected the Windy City's pizza and decided it was delicious; he smuggled deep-dish pizza back to Austin and opened Mangia.
Pizza is easily manipulated with the hands, so it's excellent sustenance for grade-school sleepovers, company gatherings, and pizza competitions. Plus, a giant slice of Chicago-style pizza is buxom enough to be placed on a plate and eaten with a fork and knife shame-free. This Groupon spares you the mortifying disgrace of carrying a cold, frozen pizza to your domicile; caress a warm, freshly cooked, and perfectly prepared mound of meat and cheese instead.
The Austin Chronicle reviewed Mangia Pizza:
- Regardless of whether you're an aficionado of thin or stuffed crust, Mangia has your number. Their thin-crust pizza is perfectly light and crunchy, while the heartier stuffed-crust pizza is built like a topless pot pie. Mangia's garlic-happy sauce packs a robust punch, and their toppings include several less-than-obvious choices like feta cheese and sun-dried tomatoes. – Austin Chronicle
Yelpers give Mangia Pizza 3.5 stars:
Pizza is a cultural institution, penetrating every sphere of modern media, including video games. The first pizza-inspired video game, _Pizza Problems!_, was released by Activavision Studios (a former pinball repair and budget key-copying service) in 1981.
Pizza Problems! sold an unprecedented 300 copies in 1981, and was briefly adapted into a Saturday morning animated series, although fans objected to Pepperoni's portrayal as a softheaded comic foil. Activavision Studios recently announced plans for a 30th anniversary relaunch of the _Pizza Problems!_ franchise, a mature-rated gore fest featuring the sultry voice talents of David Hyde Pierce.
