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 $5, you get $10 worth of pizza, subs, and more at Panzera's Pizza on Fairlington Drive in Upper Arlington.
Fashioned fresh by veteran dough-slingers daily, Panzera's pizzas and Italian treats have been making a home in local mouths for over 35 years. Adorned with homemade dough and sauce, pies range in price from $8 for a 10" cheese pizza to $21 for a 14" All the Way! with every available topping. Diners choose from 14 different pizza toppings—including mushrooms, capicolla ham, salami, and distilled foodcitement—before the restaurant's traditional deck oven slowly hugs each one to a golden-brown hue. Those looking for nonflat foodstuff can munch on meat- and veggie-stuffed sub sandwiches ($5.50–$6.75), or calibrate taste buds to the measurement of traditional pasta dinners, including spaghetti ($8.50) and cheese manicotti ($8.50), each topped in the house-crafted sauce and meatballs. Today's deal is good for carryout orders only, necessitating creative dinner locations such as a front yard, nearby picnic area, or prison holding cell.
