Like a résumé, a pizza stands out from the pack when strewn with toppings and stapled to one’s business suit. Apply for interesting eats with today’s Groupon: for $12, you get a pizza meal for two at Pizza Per Tutti in Toluca Lake (up to a $28.85 value). The meal includes:

Following in the tradition of his Italian-born mentor and Pizza Per Tutti’s founder Marcello Di Mauro, Chef Luciano Garcia finesses fresh dough and Halal ingredients into specialty thin-crust pies with reverence for the classic Italian dish. Instead of filing teeth into sharp points, twosomes can ready mouths for the menu’s crispy pizzas with an appetizer of fried calamari rings and a large, leafy salad such as the mandarin chicken, smattered with crunchy greens, mandarin oranges, and almonds. Bustling inside the compact kitchen, cooks sprinkle tomato sauce, mozzarella, and creative toppings on the eatery’s specialty pizzas, which include the seafood pie loaded with shrimp, scallops, and chopped clams. For veggie-centric ventures, run tongues along the House Special’s cornucopia of goat cheese, artichoke hearts, garlic, and sundried tomatoes.
