If you’ve never had authentic thin-crust pizza, then what you think is pizza might in fact be a cunningly disguised pretzel. Today’s Groupon clears up the confusion: for $12, you get a carryout pizza dinner for four at Papa Saverio’s Pizzeria in Lake in the Hills (up to a $25.46 total value). The dinner includes the following:
- One 16-inch thin-crust or double-dough pizza with up to two toppings (up to a $19.97 value)
- Four breadsticks (a $2.99 value)
- One 2-liter soda (a $2.50 value)<p>
The dough-slingers at Papa Saverio’s Pizzeria help patrons to design custom pies with a menu that boasts more than 25 toppings. Diners begin by choosing between a light, flaky thin crust and a double-dough variation that adds a slightly thicker foundation and a beautiful hand-rolled edge. Meaty add-ons such as pepperoni and canadian bacon fortify meals with a proteinous punch, spicy jalapeños add heat, and artichoke hearts transform every cheesy slice into an edible valentine. A 2-liter soda joins a quartet of garlic breadsticks to complete the feast and keep thirsty mouths from resorting to water-slinging dinner insults.
Papa Saverio’s Pizzeria – Lake in the Hills
Originally opened in 1998, Papa Saverio’s Pizzeria now operates out of more than 20 locations spread across the Midwest. Each location uses 40-year-old family recipes to build a menu of italian-beef sandwiches, pastas, and create-your-own or specialty pizzas sprinkled with the restaurant’s own blend of cheeses and more than 20 toppings. Five varieties of crust thickness range from crispy thin to stuffed, which folds cheese, toppings, and a personalized fortune between two layers of crust crowned with a swirl of homemade pizza sauce. The kitchen’s rotating deck oven ensures consistent cooking throughout each pizza, calzone, and baked pasta dish.
