What You'll Get
If you've never had authentic New York–style pizza, then what you think is pizza might in fact be tomato cheesecake. Clear up any lingering confusion with today's real deal: for $10, you get $20 worth of authentic NY-style pies and slices from Rotten City Pizza in Emeryville. Each Groupon is good for dine-in or takeout only.
Rotten City gives a green-thumbed go-ahead to chow down on any of its organically infused creations. Tip your cap to the funghi pie with roasted cremini mushrooms tossed about toasted garlic chips under a blanketing trio of mozzarella, provolone, and parmigiano cheeses ($23 per pie, $3.50 per slice), or fall mouth first into a marinara pie featuring garden-rich basil, fresh thyme, and toasted garlic splashed with extra-virgin olive oil and salted by the sea ($19 per pie, $3 per slice). The bianco verde is a fan favorite, with its potent combination of fresh mozzarella, ricotta, parmigiano, arugula pesto, chili flakes, and olive oil. Carnivores can hang a fang on hand-crafted salami, crater-laden sausage, and salt-cured anchovies for an extra $3 per ingredient.
Each authentic creation is available as a full-unit circle or as a fractional, yet functional, triangle portion. By the slice, three corners hang happily off a regulation paper plate, allowing five clean fingers to put their pie on a pedestal for every bite. Pick up a few pies and then mix and match their contents, stitching different slices into a pan-sized pizza quilt (pizza quilts will not protect you from frostbite, roommates, or bears).
- Bay Area pizza sucks. It really does. It's unbelievable how hard it is to get a decent slice. But this place is the real thing. Crispy, greasy, good cheese, good sauce. Serious toppings. – Jaiun N., Yelp
