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 gourmet pizza, sandwiches, lasagna, and drinks at Rovente Pizza on SE Hawthorne Boulevard in Portland.
Rovente Pizza's pizza artisans harvest their fresh goods from local farms to craft New York–style dough disks with crispy, crunchy crusts, vibrant toppings, and whole-milk mozzarella. Roll reading orbs over the enormous menu and choose between 10 gourmet carne pizzas, including the Maui Maui, which hosts flavor luaus on the tongue with canadian bacon, pineapple, green peppers, and roma tomatoes ($14.99–$28.99). Vegetarians can quell herbivorous hankerings with one of seven verdura pies ($12.99–$28.99), while custom pies can be created from more than 30 topping options ($11.99+). French-bread pizza sammies such as the barbecue chicken ($7.99) diplomatically unite Italian and French cravings, while the culinary court of the lasagna supreme greets grumbling belly grievances with meat, mushrooms, olives, tomatoes, zucchini, and a gavel made out of ricotta ($12.95).
