Few things go as well together as wine and pizza except beer and pizza, dramatic landscapes and pizza, and Socratic pedagogy and pizza. Today's Groupon treats you to most of these pairings: for $10, you get $25 worth of handmade, thin-crust pizzas and wine at Rare Earth Pizza & Wine Bar in Scottsdale, which just so happens to be celebrating its sixth anniversary today.
More than 15 signature thin crusts vie for attention on Rare Earth's supper menu, including the early-morning charm of the breakfast anytime pizza (sausage, bacon, white onion, and mozzarella, topped with a sunny-side-up egg and cracked pepper; $14), the sweet and spicy prosciutto and fig pie ($14), and the light and savory bianca with garlic and oil beneath mozzarella, goat cheese, parmesan, and tomatoes ($13). Sandwich enthusiasts, meanwhile, will admire the precision layering of the Goodfella Italian sub, decked in salami, prosciutto, pepperoni, tomatoes, roasted red peppers, provolone, and house vinaigrette ($12). You'll be able to flip through your options while basking in Rare Earth's warmly refined atmosphere and admiring its pristine vistas of Troon Mountain and Pinnacle Peak. Settle into Rare Earth's rhythm with a glass of Lot 205 zinfandel ($12) and a starter of baked brie with fresh fruit, walnuts, and lavosh ($10).
Though the last surviving seeds of the pizza tree are kept in a disaster-proof cryogenic vault at The Hall of Natural and Historical Sauces, its fruits thankfully remain plentiful today. Today's Groupon lets you enjoy a few of its choicest fruits with a few of your choicest friends.
Dine-in only; reservations recommended.
Rare Earth Pizza and Wine Bar
On Rare Earth Pizza and Wine Bar's outdoor patio, servers transport hand-tossed pizzas and glasses of wine in the flickering glow of outdoor fire bowls. Conversation buzzes as guests take in views of technicolor sunsets and the surrounding landscape of Pinnacle Peak. Inside, they can sidle up to the tall wooden bar to take a look at hand-chalked specials, or gather around tables to take turns singing lists of gourmet ingredients from the menu.
