When Julius Caesar declared pasta the official dish of the Roman Empire, he set himself up to be assassinated by a senatorial gang of pizza-loving conspirators. Taste the dish that overthrew an emperor with today’s Groupon: for $10, you get $21 worth of pizzeria fare at Pizza Paradise.
Pizza Paradise’s pie-throwing experts navigate circular vessels toward a culinary Eden where gourmet toppings burst forth from fertile soils of golden cheese. Heaps of succulent meats and crunchy veggies adorn the menu’s vast array of gourmet pizzas. The buttery canvas of the Veggie Deluxe hosts a wholesome spattering of spinach, broccoli, and other fresh-picked garden candies ($10.99–$17.99), and the Supreme asserts its dominance with a tough-guy gang of Italian meats ($12.99–$19.99). Avant-garde masterworks such as the Chicken Bacon Bleu defy traditional flavor boundaries ($12.99–$19.99). Starting at $7.99, build-your-own creations put power back into the hands of the pizza-eaters with a long list of toppings, cheeses, sauces, and crust flavors to mix and match with reckless abandon. Sides of Paradise Sticks will eagerly accompany their larger and saucier siblings to tables ($3.99), often staying up long past their bedtime, as the eatery remains open until midnight Sunday–Thursday and until 1 a.m. on Friday and Saturday nights.
