If you've never had authentic Italian pizza, then what you think is pizza might in fact be a cunningly disguised pretzel. Today's Groupon clears up the confusion: for $12, you get two large two-topping pizzas and a 2-liter bottle of soda at Marco's Pizza (a $27.47 value).
Each day, Marco's churns out freshly concocted sauces and house-made dough to construct an assortment of palate-pleasing pies. The menu plays host to a bevy of carnivore-pleasing delicacies and veggie-laden pies topped with gooey feta or cheddar cheese. With 18 toppings to choose from, including eight varieties of meat that ensure stomachs have the protein necessary to roundhouse-kick hunger in the face, as well as a roster of vegetables from onions to banana peppers and roma tomatoes, even fickle taste buds will find lasting inner peace with a two-topping pie. To quell thirst or small fires, customers can pick their choice of a 2-liter of Pepsi, Diet Pepsi, Mountain Dew, or Sierra Mist.
Marco's is the delectable brain baby of founder Pasquale "Pat" Giammarco, who moved to the United States from Italy when he was 9 and grew up working in his family's pizzeria. The recipe Marco's uses today was developed by Pat and his father, focusing on delicious dough, savory sauce, and the cheekiest of cheese. Any pizza can be accompanied by dipping sauce or additionally festooned with free crust toppers of butter-garlic, parmesan, or roma seasoning.
