A tantalizing slice of pizza, much like Spider-Man, often seems a work of fiction and has mediocre imitations scattered across every New York City rooftop. Take a bite out of reality with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of pizza, drinks, and more at New York Pizza Company in St. Augustine.
The aliment artisans at the family-owned New York Pizza Company handcraft a menu of cheesy pies, sandwiches, calzones, and salads for midday and evening escapes to the Big Apple. Dough spinners knead and toss resilient pizza bases, which are then cooked to a customizable level of crispiness in a fiery stone oven; pizza is available with either original hand-tossed or thin crust. Mozzarella, italian herbs, and scratch-made sauce festoon the famous cheese pie ($5.99–$13.99), while italian sausage and pepperoni form a meat mosaic on The Deluxe pie ($7.99–$19.99), aptly enjoyed on-site or glued to a bedroom ceiling in lieu of glow-in-the-dark stars. Fresh calzones ($7.99–$8.99) buttress the bill of fare along with hero sandwiches such as the italian hero ($7.99), which is served hot or cold to assuage crippling fears of room temperature.
Arrive before 3 p.m. to indulge in the New York slice ($2.25), or opt to share a salvo of slices with a best friend, confidant, or willing hostage while basking in the sunshine on New York Pizza Company's outdoor stone patio.
New York Pizza Company
To create the perfect New York–style pizza, chefs at New York Pizza Company start with a mound of freshly made dough. They hand-toss the dough into a thin disk and then cover it with a housemade pesto, alfredo, or pizza sauce before sprinkling on cheese. The chefs can happily add toppings of your choosing, such as roasted red peppers and grilled chicken, or they'll craft a specialty pizza like the buffalo chicken or hawaiian pie. Whichever way you like your pie, a rotating stone oven cooks it to a perfect crisp finish before cutting it into slices.
And pizza isn't the only item on the menu. Its ingredients—sauce, dough, and high-quality toppings—make appearances in other dishes as well. Pie fixings can be found inside calzones, and the housemade dough is transformed into the eatery’s popular garlic knots. The marinara sauce tucks into Italian-style sausage hero sandwiches, serves as a side to mozzarella sticks, and can cover build-your-own pasta dishes. Fresh salads and warm soup help round out the food selections, all of which can be delivered right to patrons’ houses.
