A large pizza, like a studio apartment, offers the freedom to arrange toppings however you’d like within 16 inches of personal space. Stretch out and grab a savory slice of space with today’s Groupon: for $19, you get a carryout pizza dinner from Papa Saverio’s Pizzeria on Orchard Road in Aurora (up to a $38.46 value). The pizza dinner includes:
- A 16-inch pizza (up to a $20.99 value)
- Two toppings (up to a $3.98 value)
- 12 buffalo wings (a $10.99 value)
- One two-liter soda (a $2.50 value)
Papa Saverio’s Pizzeria peppers its old-world menu of fresh pizzas with nearly endless crust and topping options. Tomato sauce and bubbling cheese underlie blankets of two munchable mosaic elements selected from 23 fresh options that include ricotta cheese, artichoke hearts, giardiniera, and Canadian bacon. Thin-crust pies form a light, flaky foundation, and double-dough, pan, and stuffed varieties pack a greater dose of chewy carbohydrates. Chicago deep-dish bathes its buttery dough in a thick layer of chunky tomato nectar. As a starter, side dish, or superior food-fight weapon, buffalo wings arrive clad in hot, mild, or barbecue sauce and ready to dip into ranch or blue-cheese dressing.
Papa Saverio's Pizza
In the four decades since the first Papa Saverio’s opened its doors, the pizzeria has expanded to more than 20 locations but stayed true to the family recipes its founders brought from Italy. As a tribute to their long paddle across the Atlantic, a Venetian gondola wraps around the pizzeria’s logo; though the boat’s five-pronged prow has become its signature of sorts, it’s Saverio’s oven-baked pies that continue to earn the eatery new fans. Guests can choose from a menu of specialty pizzas or create their own from more than 25 toppings and five crusts, including a double-stuffed crust that nearly bursts with melted cheese. Chefs also churn out Italian classics, such as calzones, family-size pasta dishes, house-specialty ribs, and fried chicken. Lest anyone question the Italian origins of the latter two items, the pizzeria serves each with a buttery garlic breadstick.
