Pizza is ubiquitous in American culture, thanks solely to its ability to double as a fraction calculator. Indulge in a numerator with today's Groupon: for $12, you get $25 worth of oven-ready pizza and Italian fare at Papa Petrone’s Take ‘N Bake in Woodbridge.
Dough decorators at Papa Petrone’s combine fresh ingredients to build gourmet pizzas and pastas primed to incubate in home ovens. Kitchen crew members prepare all menu items in-house, mixing egg whites to create cholesterol-free pasta noodles and crushing Stanislaus-brand, fresh-packed tomatoes to concoct signature red sauces for pizzas and low-budget horror-film effects. Unheated pizzas lounge on ready-to-bake trays and captivate potential pie parents with their pristine mozzarella-cheese base, which can be left plain ($8.90 for small; $13.90 for large) or crowned with a variety of toppings ($1.05+ each for a small) including bacon, ricotta cheese, or eggplant. Families can snag a pan of lasagna ($6.75/lb.), a gooey mélange of freshly made pasta, five cheeses, and marinara sauce that showcases more layers than a teenager's poetry about winter wear.
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.
