Pizza, much like the earth, is circular, flat, and supports the existence of Karl Malone. Support your appetite with today’s Groupon: for $12, you get $25 worth of pizza, calzones, and more at Marilyn’s Pizza in Cary, valid for dine-in or carryout orders.
Named after the owner’s deserving mother, Marilyn’s Pizza serves up stone-baked pies and calzones made with fresh, high-quality ingredients. Examine the menu for an eye-hitting premium pizza such as the marinara-based Big Sleep piled with plump shrimp, mozzarella, artichoke hearts, pineapple pieces, fresh basil, and moody street lighting ($11.95 for a small, $19.95 for a large). Calzone cravers meet their match with savory folded-over dough crescents, or they can wander into sweet territory with a cranberry, granny-smith apple, prosciutto, sage, mozzarella, and brie-filled treat ($8.95). Carnivorous carnies and vegetarian clowns alike can create meat- and veggie-laden dough disks from a mozzarella pizza ($7 for a 10” small; $11 for a 16” large) by adding toppings such as pepperoni and roasted chicken or avocado and eggplant ($1–$1.50), which diverge deliciously from the standard fairground cuisine of chewy tightropes.
Upon request, Marilyn’s Pizza can proudly produce gluten-free dough from scratch using rice flour, tapioca flour, xanthium gum, and soy milk for an enjoyable, wheat-free bottom layer. Curiosity seekers and saucy adventurers looking for dramatic one-liners can try switching out the standard tomato base for an unusually succulent sauce such as Marilyn’s black bean, basil pesto, or classic alfredo.
