If you've never had authentic New York–style pizza, then what you think is pizza might in fact be a cunningly disguised pretzel. Today's Groupon clears up the confusion: for $10, you get $20 worth of pizza and wings at River City Pizza on Pembina Highway.
River City serves up thinly crusted specialty pies to-order alongside buckets of chicken wings, racks of ribs, and plates of poutine. A plethora of cheese, meat, veggie, and fruit toppings assemble to laze deliciously atop customized crusts measuring 9–17 inches in diameter—making them too small for stuffing into a CD wallet but an acceptable size for hiding between the mattress and the box spring. Specialty and deluxe selections include a meat-lovers pie with five varieties of protein ($11–$23) and the sweet chicken deluxe, starring bacon, sausage, and the formidable fowl cloaked in honey-garlic barbecue sauce ($12.99–$24.99). River City's full menu also proffers burgers, pastas, and salads.
