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 $10, you get $20 worth of homemade pizzeria fare and wine at Pirrone's Pizzeria's Florissant or St. Peters locations.
The culinary artists at Pirrone's Pizzeria paint St. Louis–style pizza portraits across the menu, adorning homemade dough canvases with cheeses, sauce, and 16 toppings. Chefs pepper 12- and 15-inch disks ($10.65–$12.45+) with precision topping strikes of italian salami, pepperoncinis, and blistering one-liners ($1.59–$1.99), and servers deliver heaping bowls of ravioli and meatballs ($3.75–$8.55). Diners can explore the depths of hunger with seafood cannelloni swimming in an abyss of lobster, shrimp, and scallops and smothered in creamy white sauce ($5.60 for a half portion, $10.50 for a full portion). Patrons can liven up dinner conversations with glasses of grape elixirs crushed from the tender fruits of merlot and chardonnay vines ($4.25), or cap meals with 24 karats of mouth dazzle over hunks of cool carrot cake ($3.25).
All of Pirrone's pizzas are baked fresh upon ordering and use house-made dough for a pie-eating experience more personal than getting fingerprinted at the cafeteria. Though its Florissant location has sated hunger for decades, the St. Peters location has only recently embarked upon its violent crusade against appetites.
Cooks at Pirrone's Pizzeria's two locations craft pizzas from fresh dough, housemade sauce, and 17 different toppings. Inside the kitchens, cooks bake lasagnas and deep-fry golden onion rings to pair with sandwiches stuffed with meatballs, chicken parmesan, and italian salami. In the evening, diners can opt for a dinner portion of golden fried jumbo shrimp, skinless chicken breast, or italian sausage accompanied by salad, spaghetti, and all the napkins you can eat. Both locations have sizeable dining rooms, and the newer Saint Peters location fills its red-hued walls with flat-screen televisions showing sporting events for customers seated at the full bar.
