What You'll Get
Though all foods must courageously face their impending demise, pizza has performed such heroic feats as feeding 10 people at once and replacing a missing manhole cover to keep a pigeon from flying below the street to lay eggs. Test pizza's bravery with today's Groupon: for $12, you get $25 worth of pizzas, sandwiches, and more at Rico's Italian Pizza in Woodland.
All of Rico's Italian Pizza's dough discs are tossed by hand before being slathered with sauce, strewn with fresh toppings, and baked to a bubbly golden brown. Create your own circular edible by choosing thin, medium, or thick crust, then picking toppings ($11.95+). Or, go for a prearranged pie, such as the generously topped Carnivore (pepperoni, salami, italian sausage, ground beef, linguica, and canadian bacon; $14.95). Take-and-bake pizzas await ovens where they can be incubated until their flavors hatch ($8.95–$9.95). Rico's menu also offers sandwiches and salads for people who don't like cutting circles into triangles. Plus, the restaurant's casual décor makes any meal there more relaxing than a picnic in a gutted bus at the bottom of a quarry.
Though reviewers are polarized about the quality of the pizzas, 32 Yelpers give the Sacramento location of Rico's Italian Pizza an average of 3.5 stars. Yahoo! Locals and six Citysearchers give the pizzeria an average of 4.5 stars
