For centuries, pizza and pasta battled for the title of Italy’s most beloved dish, an honor that was ultimately bestowed upon Sophia Loren. Cast your vote for the Boot’s best culinary creation with today’s Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of pizza, subs, and tacos at Rival’s Pizza.
The pizza chefs at Rival’s Pizza pack a menu with interestingly topped pies, subs, and tacos. Like appetites, specialty dough disks come in various sizes, ranging from the small ($7.99+) to the extralarge ($11.99+) to the irresponsibly large 30-incher ($49.99+). Barbecue pulled-pork pizza layers yanked pig, smoky sauce, and coleslaw atop a crispy crust; the taco pizza brings lettuce, tomatoes, and sour cream to the table; and the southwestern pie blankets its cheesy foundation in southwest sauce, chicken, and bacon. For those intent on creating their own vision of dinner utopia, the staff will happily concoct any pizza ($4.99–$29.99, each topping $0.50–$4 extra) with more than 20 topping choices, including feta cheese, salami, and steak. Subs, tacos, and stromboli round out the already stuffed menu.
Armed with only an oven and an old treasure map made of mozzarella cheese, the chefs at Rival’s Pizza bake a long list of pizzeria specialties to a bubbly golden brown. The eatery models its menu after an old-fashioned pizza parlor, but staffers also whip up dough disks in modern 30-inch sizes and make it rain with free sprinklings of parmesan, poppy seeds, crushed red peppers, and cinnamon. Complementing Rival’s main dish are pasta, stromboli, calzones, and a smores dessert pizza with Hershey's chocolate; delivery is available for an extra dollar.
