Ninety percent of alleged UFO sightings can be easily explained as falling meteors, swamp-gas reflections, or doughy disks being hurled into orbit by Herculean pizza makers. Enjoy earthbound eats with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of pizza and pasta at Saljo's Pizza in Pantego.
The crust creators at Saljo's Pizza spin dough made fresh daily and pepper pasta with tasty ingredients. A multitude of pizzas populate the menu, from the hand-tossed New York–style ($8+) and the foam-finger-tossed three-cheese white pizza ($17 for an 18") to Grandma's pie, which piles marinara, cheese, basil, and garlic on a thin sicilian crust ($16). Creamy tortellini alfredo ($12) plays good cop to the spicy-tempered penne arrabiata ($12.95), and the hamburger, ricotta, and mozzarella calzone ($7) swims in a kiddie pool of tomato sauce.
Saljo's Pizza’s kitchen crew mixes fresh batches of dough each day before hand-tossing and flattening their finished products into New York–style and deep-dish Sicilian pizza crusts. Though the pizzas enjoy a privileged mention in the restaurant’s name, they share space on the menu with a host of traditional Italian dishes. Chef’s recommendations include veal cannelloni rolled with spinach ricotta and mozzarella cheeses and fettuccini noodles tossed in a creamy sauce of herbs and parmesan cheese. Like the pizza dough, each hearty dish is made from scratch daily and hand-tossed to ensure that its various ingredients are all equally susceptible to gravity.
