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 $15, you get $30 worth of pizza and drinks at Peace A Pizza, Main Line's pick for Best Gourmet Pizza in 2009. This Groupon can be redeemed at either the Springfield or Rosemont location. It is not valid for delivery.
Peace A Pizza’s menu offers gourmet pizza pies, strombolis, and salads that transcend the violent dough beatings and Pacmanic depression that typifies traditional pizza parlors. Guests can start training for chompathons with a Mediterranean salad ($6.99), which sprinkles crisp greens with a smattering of cucumbers, tomatoes, olives, red onions, feta cheese, and cracked black peppercorn—all doused in a healthy deluge of Greek dressing. Pizzas can be harder to spot because they wear a variety of costumes. Patrons can order a 14-inch Philly cheesesteak ($15.49) smothered in sharp provolone or seek out a 14-inch honey-lime chicken, with breaded chicken atop mozzarella, garnished with mandarin oranges, cranberries, and drizzled with a zesty honey-lime dressing ($15.29). If you're more in the mood for stromboli, find out what it's like havin' a Roni Explosion ($6.99), a fold-over feast of rapidly expanding pepperoni and mozzarella served with red sauce.
Peace A Pizza traces its humble beginnings all the way back to the babysitting prowess of Pete Howey and his babysittee, Aaron Nocks, who would later ditch microbiological research to probe pizza with Pete. Experience the cheesy goodness of life with today's Groupon to Peace A Pizza.

Peace a Pizza
Specialty gourmet pizzas are broken down into three basic categories on Peace a Pizza's menu—chicken, meat, and vegetarian. But a closer look reveals that each gourmet pie is anything but basic. For instance, the spicy chicken pizza is piled with spicy chicken, pico de gallo, red sauce, and mozzarella. Vegetarians aren't reduced to mere cheese slices, either: vegetarian offerings include a bruschetta pie, a Mediterranean-style pizza piled with veggies and cheese (including kalamata olives, feta, and artichokes), plus mac-and-cheese and baked ziti pizzas to boot.
Although pizza reigns supreme at Peace a Pizza's eight different locations, the menu also includes garlic breadsticks and wheat sticks to kick off meals, along with eight specialty salads, including a pear and gorgonzola, santa fe chicken, and classic caesar salad. If both pizza and salad are calling your name, or just humming softly to your stomach, no problem—the Groovy 2 Combo includes any slice and a small salad.
