Choosing pizza toppings is a lot like being married: if there is an irreconcilable disagreement, both parties take half. Grab a piece of the pie with today’s Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of pizza, wings, calzones, and more at Pizza Pit in Mesa.
Pizza Pit serves up a hunger-sating menu of Quad City-style pizzas and calzones using a 50-year-old specialty recipe. Grub architects can construct their own piescrapers with a cornucopia of toppings, including salami, jalapeños, sauerkraut, pepperoncinis, and ricotta cheese. The No Joke sausage pizza ($7.75–$18.75) stuffs teams of professional shuffleboarders with pork sirloin sausage, which is blended and slow-cooked in special spices before being blanketed in mozzarella cheese. Heat-seeking palates can enjoy a spicy buffalo chicken pizza ($9.25–$21.75) or an order of jumbo wings ($4.99 for six), available in mild, medium, hot, honey hot, or honey barbecue. Adventure seekers can discover the taco pizza ($9.75–$22.75), which is packed with seasoned pork, pinto bean spread, mozzarella, and cheddar cheese. Diners too hungry to bother with pizza's complicated fractions can bury their tongues alive with one of the pizzeria's homemade baked calzones, such as the ricotta and mozzarella ($7) or the chicken alfredo, loaded with garlic baked chicken, ricotta, mozzarella, cheddar cheese, and a alfredo white sauce ($8.50).
Along with its extensive selection of circular concoctions, Pizza Pit's outdoor seating provides diners with scenic views of the lake, and indoor seating allows sporting enthusiasts to keep up with their favorite teams on one of eight flat-screen TVs. Drop in to sample a handmade dough disk packed with garden fresh produce, premium mozzarella cheese, and a zesty sauce that’s delectable enough to lure a lycopene-craving vampire to a midnight screening of Love at First Bite.
