For centuries, pizza and pasta battled for the title of Italy’s most beloved dish, an honor that was ultimately bestowed upon Sophia Loren. Cast your vote for the Boot’s best culinary creation with today’s Groupon: for $12, you get a pizza meal for two at Pizza Station in Winter Garden (up to a $24.06 value). The meal includes:
- An order of garlic knots (a $2.50 value)
- A 16-inch pizza with up to three toppings (a $16.49 value)
- Two fountain drinks (a $1.75 value each)
- Tax (a $1.57 value)
The pie makers at Pizza Station create authentic NYC-style pizzas entirely from scratch, using hand-tossed dough disks crowned with house-made sauce and a selection of more than 20 fresh toppings. Partnered patrons tie garlic knots around fingers as a reminder to chew slowly before dipping bready bites into a savory sauce. A large, eight-slice pizza can arrive bearing a meaty triumvirate of pepperoni, sausage, and bacon, which sign an agreement to reign over their savory kingdom equally. Diners can also opt for a vegetable medley of broccoli, tomatoes, and spinach, or they can try any combination of herbivorous and carnivorous toppings from the menu’s ample offerings. Free hands raise two carbonated fountain drinks to refresh palates with more bubbles than a Don Ho concert on New Year’s Eve.
A duo of dough-tossing veterans owns and operates the casual eatery, which benefits from a kitchen helmed by pizza makers with proud Italian-American heritage and ovens plucked directly from the appliance groves of Tuscany.
NY Pizza Station
NY Pizza Station's chefs serve authentic Sicilian-style pizzas topped with dough and sauces that are made fresh daily. They top these hand-tossed gourmet pies with a myriad of inventive toppings, including blackened Cajun chicken, ricotta cheese, and buffalo sauce. As their pizzas bubble in ovens, they cook classic garlic knots and wings tossed in one of nine sauces—garlic parmesan, lemon pepper, and teriyaki, to name three.
A recently expanded menu and dining room transform this former pizza stand into a true Italian restaurant. The chefs introduce taste buds to the new and improved NY Pizza Station through hearty pastas, chicken parmesan, and exotic seafood scampis. A new team of bartenders concocts adult libations and pours cold brews at the full bar. On select days, NY Pizza Station hosts karaoke, trivia, and live DJs, as well as face painters who decorate younger patrons to resemble their favorite animal or hedge-fund logo.
