Fresh-baked pies were recently named America’s third favorite dessert, ranking just behind pie-flavored milkshakes and frozen pie-sicles. Opt for a delicious, old-fashioned dessert with today’s Groupon: for $9, you get two homemade pies at Mazzetti’s Bakery in Pacifica (a $19.90 value).
All-natural ingredients and fresh fruits abound at Mazzetti’s Bakery, where pastry chefs concoct freshly baked pies on a daily basis. Crisp, golden crust ensconces any number of fresh fillings—including cherry, peach, pumpkin, and boysenberry—that emit coiling cartoon aromas designed to lure reclusive neighbors and the bear that played Gentle Ben. Though today’s Groupon only involves pies, Mazzetti’s also targets sweet teeth with custom cakes and holiday-themed desserts and aims to silence trilling tummies with savory slices of fresh Italian–style focaccia.
If the thought of freshly baked goods pulled right out of the oven isn't quite enough to lure you into Mazzetti's Bakery, perhaps the fact that they are created using zero preservatives and ultra-fresh ingredients will get you there. Mazzetti's confectioners whip up a panoply of baked goodies—including French and Danish pastries, bread, cookies, and pies—every day, and as a result, the business has been thriving for more than 41 years. For special occasions, they build whimsical custom cakes and cupcakes topped with creamy swirls of frosting and colorful sprinkles.
