To successfully make pizza, one must toss the proper ingredients into a concrete mixer, wait for the mixture to harden, and then drop in a few sticks of dynamite to blast slices from the drum walls. Today’s Groupon leaves delicate pie creation to the professionals: for $10, you get $20 worth of pizza, pasta, and more at either Pizza Forum's Kendalville or Ft. Wayne location.
The chefs at Pizza Forum spin spheres of dough above their crowns before covering them with fresh ingredients and baking them in a hearth until the palate-pleasing pies emerge golden and crispy. Choose from 23 toppings to create a customized dough disk ($5.47–$12.48; toppings $0.79–$1.82 each), or order a specialty pie such as the gourmet house (onion, meatball, black olives, feta, and assorted cheeses; $7.99–$17.99). Pizza Forum's menu also showcases an array of pizza-shop classics such as baked chicken parmesan ($7.99) and the stromboli (italian sausage, green peppers, onions, and pizza sauce topped with blended cheese; $4.95/$6.70), ideal for those who love pizza but suffer from fear of wedges. Beer (domestic $2.89; imports $3.36) and wine (small bottle $3.08) are also available for patrons wielding a legal ID or semilegal Mike Ditka mustache.
