Choosing pizza toppings is a lot like being married: if there is an irreconcilable disagreement, both parties take half. Grab a piece of the pie with today’s Groupon: for $7, you get $15 worth of pizza, wings, and more at Nicolitalia Pizza Express, valid only at the Draper location.
The menu at Nicolitalia Pizza Express boasts homemade Italian recipes and hardy Boston-style pies, dipping into the Cioppa family's more than forty years of collective dough-throwing experience. Sauce veterans can commence with a helping of barbecue, buffalo, teriyaki, or plain chicken wings ($3.49–$5.49) served with ranch or blue cheese, and greens enthusiasts can order a side greek salad ($2.29). Specialty thin-crust pizzas come in 11 varieties, such as the Italian stallion, an equestrian soiree of spinach, pepperoni, steak, garlic, mozzarella, and parmesan ($13.49–$18.99) or the melanzano dell’orto, a vegetarian disk of margarita sauce, eggplant, peppers, and olives ($11.99–$16.99). A medium make-your-own pie ($7.99), like a studio apartment, offers the freedom to arrange toppings ($0.99–$1.49 each) as you like within 12 inches of personal space. In the interest of sweet farewells, large cannolis embrace vanilla-flavored ricotta in a protective pastry shell ($1.99), and dessert-pizza lines a crust with vanilla cream and chocolate chips ($7.99).
Guests are liberated from the middleman at Nicolitalia, which has no wait staff and lets patrons serve and seat themselves. Visitors can treat vehicles to Italian smells by coasting through the drive-thru or savor a carry-out order to enjoy in the privacy of their own backyard gladiatorial box.
