Michaelangelo, the most radical of the Ninja Turtles, was as famous for his love for pizza as he was for painting the Sistine Chapel ceiling with a single set of nunchuks. Today's Groupon demonstrates a pie prowess worthy of the Renaissance tortoise: for $10, you get $25 worth of gourmet pizza, subs, wings, and more at Michaelangelo's Pizza. The pizzeria is located in downtown Nashville, just outside of Vanderbilt. This close proximity to college students, the world's foremost pizza connoisseurs, gives Michelangelo's a tough audience to please, so expect greatness and plenty of book-learnin' to go along with the staff's obvious street smarts. Your Groupon is good for dine-in, carryout, or delivery.
Every morning the pizza farmers harvest fresh batches of dough from a dewy field of dreams only visible to those who have mastered the art of tossing dough without it briefly getting stuck to the ceiling and falling comically on their faces when they look up. Atop each disc of newborn dough, Michelangelo's adds premium Wisconsin cheeses and gourmet toppings. Pizzas come in four sizes (individual, medium, large, and "small U.S. state") and fall into three categories (gourmet, specialty, build your own). A lengthy ingredient list allows you to create such a vast number of pizzabilities that it can only be expressed by a sausage-and-mushroom pie baked in the shape of an infinity. Check out the menu for full details.
Gourmet pizzas range from $14.49 to $18.99, depending on size. The Italian feast comes loaded with chicken, onions, green peppers, mushrooms, tomatoes, and garlic, and the white-sauce-based alfredo pizza tops itself with chicken and spinach. Specialty pizzas are about a buck less than gourmet and include options such as the barbecue chicken or the cheeseburger pizza (cheddar, beef, and bacon). Build your own by picking a basic size ($10.49 to $12.99), a sauce, and as many toppings as you can handle (additional $.99 to $1.99 each).
For less slicey options, pick from a variety of wings, sub sandwiches, calzones, pastas, and salads. Grab 10 wings or a sub, such as a veggie or meatball, for $5.99. Inside-out pizzas, otherwise known as a calzones, come in multiple sizes with four toppings of your choice stuffed inside. For a pasta party, pick from lasagna, baked spaghetti, and more ($6.99 each). Contrary to the lyrics of popular songs, other menu items can still infuse you with much-needed "Pizza Power."

Michaelangelo's Pizza's cooks put a little art into every pie they make. They offer standard fare––pepperoni, sausage, ham, or all three plus beef and bacon on their meatlover's pie––alongside specialty pizzas that recreate philly cheesesteaks or chicken alfredo. They also let customers build their own pizzas, or get their cheese, sauce, and up to four toppings folded within a calzone, the baked envelope of dough ideal for mailing yourself dinner. They also offer salads and sandwiches, but for dessert they return to what they're best at: satisfying sweets cravings with a cherry dessert pizza. \
