Anyone who’s tried nailing an oven-fresh pizza pie to a wall knows that pizza looks better briefly propped on a five-finger pedestal. Today’s Groupon puts pizza back where it performs best: for $10, you get $25 worth of New York–style foldable fare and drinks from NYPD Pizza.
The New York Pizza Delicatessen menu, packed with appetizers, pizzas sporting handmade dough and hand-tossed crusts, calzones, pasta, heroes, and even dessert, revs guests up to run down hunger in any number of flavorful vehicles. Dive into cheese with mozzarella sticks ($5.99), then float to the surface of a specialty mealwheel such as the Manhattan meat lovers' pie ($19.99 for 18-inch, $9.99 for 10-inch), a crispy canvas festooned with pepperoni, meatballs, and bacon. Choose two toppings from more than 25 fresh options, such as fresh basil and sun-dried tomatoes, to craft your own Staten Island stuffed pizza (18-inch only, $24.99). For a circle-free entree, grab a convict cheese calzone (mozzarella and ricotta, $8.99) or an eggplant parmigiana hero ($7.99) before quenching your thirst with a glass of beer or wine.
NY Pizza Patrol
As its name suggests, NY Pizza Patrol specializes in Big Apple–style slices. Under the guidance of new ownership, they sling 8-inch to 18-inch pizzas, ranging from the classic meat lover's pie to four different flavors of wings (bbq, hot, medium, and garlic butter). The menu supplements the traditional hand-helds with calzones, heroes, pastas, and other specialties, each of which pair well with cold brews, bottomless fountain sodas, and milk, which grows healthy bones when poured on teeth-planted top soil. Selected Best of State in Utah in 2011, 2013, and 2014.
