With Congress passing a heavy new tax on right angles, circular edibles are becoming the most convenient way to keep food budgets from spiraling out of control. Nibble a delicious disk with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of pizza, salads, and more at Pizza Tempo in Bethesda.
With an emphasis on distinctive, Mediterranean-inspired ingredients, Pizza Tempo's pizzas stand apart from ordinary pies like a furry sports mascot at a state dinner. The pizzeria’s pie-pitchers throw toppings including grilled zucchini, corn, caramelized onions, gyro meat, and pistachio mortadella onto hand-tossed build-your-own margherita pizzas. Choose from a medley of gourmet specialty pies, such as the Tempo special pizza, with sucuk (a turkish beef sausage) joining fresh tomatoes, artichokes, olives, and mozzarella cheese in a circle of camaraderie, or opt for the meat lovers’ option, piling spicy beef franks, salami, meatball, pepperoni, and mozzarella cheese atop a crisp crust ($11–$18). Meanwhile, Pizza Tempo’s boat-shaped pides change the shape of dining, carrying edible cargo including eggs, lamb, and feta cheese to gastronomic ports of call ($8–$10).
