Ninety percent of alleged UFO sightings can be easily explained as falling meteors, swamp-gas reflections, or doughy orbs hurled into orbit by Herculean pizza makers. Enjoy earthbound eats with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of pizza and more at Red Zeppelin Pizza.
Red Zeppelin's menu unleashes a chorus of golden pizzas, crispy calzones, savory salads, and scrumptious sandwiches. Patrons can whet their appetites with starters such as buffalo wings ($8.99), or the Opa! greek salad ($7.99) before shrouding taste buds in the nuanced cheese blankets of specialty pies. The Great Balls of Fire pizza delivers warmth to stomach inhabitants on a 14-inch dough disk, slathered with barbecue sauce and topped with sliced meatballs, jalapeños, red onions, mozzarella, cheddar, and feta ($15.95). Creative customers can customize circular sustenance, gluing toppings ($1–$2 per topping) to a 10-inch ($7.50), 14-inch ($9.95), or 16-inch ($13.50) dough base with classic italian, olive oil and garlic, or barbecue sauce. Red Zeppelin's calzones prefer to keep their goodies hidden from hungry eyes and touchy tentacles; feast on the Red Rooster, a trove of chicken, mushrooms, onions, and mozzarella ($10.50), or opt for an oven-roasted po' boy to test tooth durability on an included side of crunchy chips ($7.95–$9.55).
Red Zeppelin Pizza
When patrons at Red Zeppelin Pizza request Whole Lotta Love, Great Balls of Fire, and Mamma Mia, they're not asking to hear oldies hits. Instead, they're ordering uniquely named specialty pizzas piled with toppings that include Sweet Baby Ray’s barbecue sauce and sizzling italian sausage. A guitar, concert posters, and other rock 'n' roll memorabilia dot the tomato and marigold walls, where mounted televisions broadcast footage of Pete Townshend smashing pizzas during cooking-show guest appearances. Twenty-one draft beers and drinks with titles such as Dr. Love and Boo’s Lemon Drop also help wash down sub sandwiches, calzones, and salads. Outside, wrought-iron flames and a sculpture of the pizzeria's namesake blimp guard the entrance of the fenced-in patio from incursions by rival musical genres.
