Spinning mad amounts of dough above one's head is an amusing way to display a coin collection, but it requires superhuman stamina to maintain. Rest your triceps and leave the dough-spinning to the pros with today's Groupon: for $7, you get $15 worth of creative pizzas, subs, salads, and more at Old River Pizza Company in Council Bluffs, Iowa. This Groupon can be used for dine-in, takeout, or delivery orders.
Following a recipe passed down for decades, the chefs at Old River Pizza Company craft dough, ladle on a layer of vine-ripened tomato sauce, splash a few fistfuls of 100% South Alma cheese blend, sprinkle on a variety of fresh veggies and locally raised meats, and bake the masterpiece in a stone-brick oven. The menu, features classic creations such as the buffalo chicken pizza dressed in marinated chicken, smoked bacon, and tomatoes, and the inventive mac & cheese pizza baked with light mozzarella and generously crumbled croutons ($14.29 each for a 12-inch medium). Gourmet pizzas, served on thick herb or thin crust, dance through options ranging from shrimp pesto to smoked salmon and Alfredo concoctions ($10.29 each for an 8-inch small), each representing a hint of sophistication sans the cumbersome shortcomings of monocle wearing.
Diners who are looking to wrap their mitts around some grains can partake in the wide range of brick-oven sandwiches such as the Reuben melt ($7.49) and the peppercorn chicken Caesar melt ($7.29), and fork-forward feasters can dive into refreshing spinach salads ($6.99) or piled-high plates of spaghetti with meatballs ($7.29 for a half-portion). No matter what's on the plate, in the hand, or bouncing about the stomach walls, all Old River orders flow toward the delta of deliciousness, which is far more preferable to the tributary of tastelessness.
