A cheese pizza is a blank canvas, just waiting to be decorated with pepperoni to symbolize life, onions to symbolize sorrow, and pineapple to symbolize fruit. Eat something meaningful with today’s Groupon: for $10, you get an Italian meal for two plus two fountain drinks at South of Philly Pizzeria (up to a $20.74 total value). Choose from the following food items:
- One 16” New York–style pizza with choice of two toppings, including gourmet toppings (up to a $16.85 value)
- One 16” signature pizza (a $17 value)
- Two pasta entrees or sandwiches (up to a $17 value).
The dough slingers at South of Philly Pizzeria toss together sandwiches, pasta, and eponymous pies using hand-lobbed crusts and 100% fresh ingredients to create its menu of Italian ingenuity. New York–style pizzas parade around tables in a wardrobe of edible accouterments, including rib eye steak, meatballs, and smoky tendrils of pulled pork. Vegetarian toppings combat ursine appetites with a garden army of banana peppers, marinated mushrooms, fresh garlic, and sundried tomatoes. Give pizza-themed magic 8 balls a break from topping choosing with a professionally designed signature pizza, such as the Tito, brushed with ranch dressing and dappled with grilled-to-order chicken, bacon, and cheddar jack, or the greek Apollo, slathered in roasted-garlic butter and dressed up in baby spinach, olives, fresh roma tomatoes, and feta.
Old Country pasta purists can savor tender tangles of linguini prepared with “Sunday gravy” (tomato sauce), topped with mozzarella before baking to a golden brown ($6.65). The pizzeria also purveys half-pound cheesesteaks packed onto amoroso rolls ($7.75), and toasty hoagies layered with imported ham, salami, and capicola ($6.75) for a taste as authentic as eating Dante’s Inferno in the original Italian.
