Pizza is a more orderly way to feed a group than serving an unwieldy party sub or dousing your guests with a chili hose. Dole out slices of fun with today’s Groupon: for $11, you get $23 worth of oven-ready pizza, pasta, and Italian fare at Papa Petrone's Take 'N Bake in Woodridge.
Papa Petrone's Take 'N Bake unburdens stressed hosts with a menu of pizzas and pasta crafted in-house each day in disposable pans destined for home ovens. Patrons hustle in for a pizza made to order with Grande mozzarella and sauces born from Stanislaus tomato products, such as the Hawaiian Brunch, a specialty pie topped with canadian bacon and pineapple ($12.10–$19.35) like an edible 3-D map of Maui. The eatery's signature Scramble Bread ($6.25/lb.) coalesces at least four of more than 25 fillings, such as italian sausage, goat cheese, and artichoke hearts, into a doughy cocoon with garlic, olive oil, and cheese. Chefs whip low-fat egg whites to craft the meat lasagna's ($6.75/lb.) sheets of fast-cooking pasta, loaded with five cheeses, ground beef, italian sausage, spinach, and a flavorful sauce seared with the meats. For a more polished presentation, customers can provide their own lasagna dishes or oven-safe family heirlooms measuring at least 2.5 inches deep.
Papa Petrone's Take 'N Bake
Since 1988, Papa Petrone's Take 'N Bake has been filling home kitchens with the scents of fresh-baked pizzas and pastas. Using California-grown tomatoes and Grande mozzarella, cooks create pizzas that can be customized with a variety of toppings—such as italian sausage, feta cheese, fresh broccoli, and jalapeño peppers. Once completed, the staff wraps each raw disk to prepare it for baking in customers' home ovens, whose balmy temperatures also finish the shop's signature ScrambleBread, scratch-made lasagnas, and hearty egg-white pastas. Papa Petrone's assortment of take-home bakeables has earned the shop numerous oven beeps of approval and a wall filled with press and awards.
