Anyone who’s tried nailing an oven-fresh pizza pie to a wall knows that pizza looks better briefly propped on a five-finger pedestal. Today’s Groupon puts pizza back where it performs best: for $5, you get $10 worth of pizza and drinks at RedBalls Rock & Roll Pizza in Woodland Hills.
Boasting a laid-back, CBGB-reminiscent atmosphere, RedBalls doles out 20-inch New York–style thin-crust pizzas and other belly fillers. RedBalls' bevy of specialty pizzas includes the Baja 1000 Pie ($18.99), which comes with a spicy, thin-crust-mounted medley of peppers alongside onions and cilantro, as well as the pepperoni-, meatball-, and sausage-laden Brooklyn Pie ($19.99). Diners hoping to digest noncircular eats can test out the Great Neck grilled-cheese wedge ($5.99) or heavy caesar salad ($5.99). Grab a table illuminated by snare-drum lighting fixtures and fix peepers on the walls festooned with concert memorabilia from the last 20 years. Stop in for live music on Friday and Saturday (past acts have included Elliot Easton from the Cars, Keith Clark from the Circle Jerks, and Kira Roessler from Black Flag), and check out the menu for pizzas big enough to share or fold into a large pizza airplane.
