The most common Internet password is “pizza123,” demonstrating America’s love for this Italian delight, as well as its complete inability to protect sensitive information. Celebrate hunger-satisfying hacking with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of thin-crust pizza, creative salads, and drinks at Spunto, located in the West Village. This Groupon is valid for dine-in only.
The kid sister of popular spots Gruppo, Posto, and Vezzo, Spunto ups the ante on sibling rivalry by offering a wide range of toppings on its menu of super-thin, brick-oven fired pies. The El Greco is an artistic compilation of bell peppers, feta, tomatoes, olives, and onions ($11 for 9" pie, $22 for 16"), and the Shroomtown fulfills a fun girl's fantasy of fungi covered in creamy cheese and white truffle oil ($12/$24). Connoisseurs of custom pies will savor a build-your-own option ($6.50/$13+) that allows diners to take their fashionable fare from concept to creation by first choosing a base of marinara and cheese, pesto and cheese, or extra-virgin olive oil, as well as a regular or nine-grain organic crust (add $0.50/$1). Once your pizza is structurally sound, accessorize it with fresh, locally grown ingredients such as grilled zucchini, French goat cheese, homemade meatballs, Italian sausage, or grilled baby eggplant, cut down in the prime of its youth for your dietary enjoyment. Enticing salads are also available to satisfy insalata inclinations, with tasty concoctions such as the popular beet and goat cheese salad with roasted beets, pickled onions, and French goat cheese tossed with pistachios, orange zest, and garlicky vinaigrette on a bed of arugula ($8).
The pizzeria's exposed brick walls create a warm, welcoming environment that's half neighborhood hangout and half trendy lounge, with late hours on Friday and Saturday for superheroes to grab a bite before returning to rooftop meditations. Pizza lovers who come during dinner will get a free homemade, warm chocolate brownie, bedecked in a crown of whipped cream. Wash down the dessert with a pitcher of Stella Artois beer ($22) or a glass of chardonnay ($8) before returning to work on your operatic tribute to calcium.
