Besides hunger, pizzas solve other everyday problems, standing in for Frisbees lost to the neighbor's roof or acting as culturally-inspired serving trays during visits from the Italian ambassador. Take a bite out of nature's most versatile slice with today's Groupon: for $7, you get $14 worth of pizza at Pizza Magnolia in South Portland.
Striving to construct the perfect pie, the chefs at Pizza Magnolia stack unique, locally sourced ingredients atop freshly made doughy disks. Cooks beautify traditional entrees with Italian-inspired pizza makeovers, transferring traditional baked-potato staples such as bacon, chives, and cheddar cream sauce onto the spud-studded dough of the Mickey's Pie ($14–$18). The Scooter Pi zooms into hungry chompers with an aerodynamic mix of herbed ricotta cheese, delicata squash, and caramelized onions shaped like Vespas ($14–18). Diners can revel in the Jezebel's exotic dance of sausage, roasted red peppers, goat cheese, and basil ($14–$18), or engross themselves in the Cleo's nostalgic tales of pepperoni and fresh mozzarella adrift in a sea of red sauce ($13–$17).
With a convenient location less than a 20-minute drive from the beach, Pizza Magnolia serves as a snack-friendly base of operations for beachgoers or the crews of haunted schooners. Striving to accommodate stomachs of all types, Pizza Magnolia's pies may be made with gluten-free or spelt flour ($2–$4 additional charge). Keeping in tune with the health-food siren song, all meats are free of chemical preservatives, and all ingredients are sourced from local farms when possible.
