Anyone who’s tried nailing an oven-fresh pizza pie to a wall knows that pizza looks better briefly propped on a five-finger pedestal. Today’s Groupon puts pizza back where it performs best at the pizza gourmet. Starting with fresh garlic, olive oil, parmesan-asiago, and Italian parsley, the pizza gourmet crafts customizable pizzas which can be baked on the spot or left uncooked for patrons to bring home and introduce to their own oven. Choose from more than 35 toppings and 20 gourmet specialty pizzas, or opt for non-pie items from the menu, which includes sandwiches, pastas, salads and fresh soups crafted daily.
- This is not the greasy pizza place around the corner - it is a much more refined pizza, and while the price does reflect this, I think it is totally worth it. – Mckenzie G., Yelp
- The pizza was really good; the crust was thin and tasty, and the cheese had a lot of flavor. The toppings were very good as well. – L. F., Yelp
The Pizza Gourmet
Included in Rhode Island Monthly's Best of Rhode Island, The Pizza Gourmet accommodates customers with a choice of custom pizzas cooked in-house or raw pies that customers can take home. All pizzas start out as a plate of fresh garlic, olive oil, parmesan, asiago, and italian parsley, but customers can personalize their pies with a multitude of crust, sauce, cheese, and topping options. Although the eatery specializes in pizza, noncircular appetites can be slaked with menu items such as sun-dried tomato pesto penne, italian grinders, and sodas.
The chefs also take their culinary creations out into the world via four theme catering menus, outfitting tailgate parties, corporate breakfasts, and cocktail parties with equal enthusiasm. Food-eaters can customize their catering orders according to dietary needs, as well, including vegan and gluten-free catering options. Inside the restaurant, an exposed-brick accent wall is painted fire-truck red to match the dining room's vivid crimson accents. The walls are covered in a rainbow of handwritten menu options, with entrees, appetizers, salads, and desserts all vying for perfect penmanship awards.
