If you've never had authentic Neapolitan pizza, then what you think is pizza might in fact be a cunningly disguised pretzel. Today's Groupon clears up the confusion: for $12, you get $25 worth of Neapolitan pizzas and Italian fare at Salvation Pizza.
Salvation Pizza dishes up from-scratch New Haven-style pizzas in a cozy bungalow that's more than 80 years old. Every day, Salvation's expert hand-hurlers toss dough high and dice up fresh fruits and veggies with the help of an added arsenal of animatronic arms. Guests can elevate taste buds to rapturous heights with savory selections of thin-crust Neapolitan pizzas, such as the asparagus, bacon, and jalapeño pie ($12.50 small, $17 large) or white-clam pizza ($13 small, $18 large), each served with homemade sauces and dressings. A daily lunch special ($5.99) sates thrifty diners with two hand-tossed slices, a crisp, small salad, and 16-ounce soda. Salvation's adventurous staff encourages diners to propose substitutions and bring in their own gluten-free crust, soy cheese, and crushed-up Noid action figures.
