The art of tossing pizza dough requires constant practice, dexterous hands, and a kitchen without a low-hanging ceiling fan. Indulge in hand-hurled cuisine with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of refined pizzeria fare at Penguin Pizza.
The foodsmiths at Penguin Pizza hand-roll their dough into thin-crust pies laden with fresh toppings. The menu rolls out pizzas such as the margherita, which buries its homemade tomato sauce beneath a house cheese blend and—similar to an herb gardener's birthday party—sprinkles on a celebratory confetti of basil (14", $9.99). The great white pizza traps its fresh lobster within a labyrinth of braised leeks and scallions (14", $14.99), and the duck confit pizza heaps slow-cooked duck leg alongside roasted potatoes and roasted red onions onto a white pizza (14", $13.99). Meanwhile, the pomodori primavera lets carrots, broccoli, and cherry tomatoes swim in its pool of homemade pomodoro sauce and float on its fettuccine noodles. Or watch as the paninis and subs smuggle fresh ingredients to tables ($7.99+).
Penguin Pizza's doors stay open until 1 a.m. seven days a week. While today's Groupon is not valid toward alcohol, Penguin Pizza also helps guests fill themselves with the carbonation to race hot air balloons with a selection of 280 beers.
Penguin Pizza’s dough-melding staff prepares each of its 22 specialty thin-crust pizzas by hand. The same treatment is applied to custom pies, which can be topped with the menu’s “usual” ingredients, such as onions, pepperoni, and mushrooms, or its “unusual” fixings, such as smoked salmon, pulled pork, or duck confit. The casual eatery complements its pizzas with a line-up of draft beers and orders of homemade chili, spaghetti and meatballs, beer-battered pickles, and spicy wings that allow diners to taste the heat without trying to get a tan on their tongues. Though not included with this Groupon, Penguin Pizza features 335 beers.
