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 $20 worth of New York–style foldable fare and drinks from NYPD Pizza in Draper, Layton, or West Valley.
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).
NYPD Pizza won a Utah Best of State award for Best New York Style Pizza in 2010. Ten Yelpers give the Draper location a modest three-star average, and 75% of Urbanspooners like the spot. Nine Google Mappers give the Layton location a four star average.
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.
