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 $10, you get $20 worth of healthy pizza from Rev'd Up Pi in Murray Hill. Delivering healthy, low-calorie pizza to the Big Apple, Rev'd Up Pi tops 16-grain crusts with homemade cheese and organic ingredients. Sink your mouthbones into the personal-sized Mighty Mushroom Pi ($12), piled high with shiitake and other mushrooms, truffle oil, and shaved parmesan; or try the Hercules Pi ($10 for a personal pie), a fibery canvas splattered with grilled turkey sausage, fresh mozzarella, broccoli rabe, and chunks of Golden Apple of the Hesperides. The environmentally conscious pizzeria uses compostable and sustainable pizza boxes and locally sourced ingredients in an effort to reduce waste, fossil-fuel usage, and pizzas rimed with barnacles thanks to trans-Atlantic voyages.
- This pizza newcomer hopes to put the “rev” in pizza revolution by bringing a healthy, green, eco-friendly approach to the pie business. Its mission: to create NYC's first non-guilt-inducing pies. – Metromix New York
- The pizza is very flavorful, and its crust is wonderfully thin yet the slice doesn't fall apart even if it's covered with toppings. The toppings do seem expensive at first ($2-$3 each), but that's before you see how fresh and plentiful they are. ¬– Nicholas S., Yelp
Rev'd Up Pi
Rev'd Up Pi's health-conscious calzones, sandwiches, and pizzas remain flavorful while staying markedly lower in calories, salt, and fat than dishes served by an average Italian eatery. Drawing on a carefully curated list of organic, low-calorie ingredients, pizza-smiths craft pies composed of triple-filtered water and soluble fiber to help improve calcium absorption, curb appetites, and bolster stomachs still ailing after breakfasts of battery acid and engine grease. Offering heat-resistant boosts of probiotics, as well as Revvers—which aim to bolster vitality, energy, and weight loss—culinary crafters give pizzas nutritional boosts, delivering the fortitude necessary for dominating hot-dog-eating contests.
