Tour de Pizza - North East Park: $10 for $20 Worth of Pizza, Drinks, and More at Tour de Pizza in St. Petersburg

Spinning mad amounts of dough above one's head is an amusing way to display a coin collection, but it requires superhuman stamina to maintain. Rest your triceps and leave the dough spinning to the pros with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of pizza, drinks, and more at Tour de Pizza in St. Petersburg, about a 30-minute drive from Tampa.

Noted as one of the best pizza places in 2008 and 2009 by the St. Petersburg Times, Tour de Pizza is a bicycle- and triathlon-themed eatery, combining a passion for cheesy pies with an appreciation of exercise and healthy living. Besides serving up 15 different varieties of by-the-slice pizza during its lunchtime hours, Tour de Pizza offers a tasty menu of sandwiches, sides, and build-your-own pizza options with both traditional and health-conscious ingredients. Pizza sizes range from 10" ($6.75+) to 16" ($12.99+), and unusual topping choices include mandarin oranges and pears for surreptitiously feeding Carmen Miranda without tipping off the landlord that you keep her in the apartment. Salads, subs, and appetizers such as garlic cheese bread ($8.99 for 12") are available, as is a take-and-bake option for cyclists who shun liquid refreshment, preferring pies be tossed at their helmeted heads mid-race. Desserts include the carb-themed likes of signature cinnamon-sugar knots ($3.99 for eight knots).

Matt McClellan, a former fast-food junkie, is not only the owner of Tour de Pizza but also the creator of the pizza diet, which saucily promotes the idea that pizza can be part of a healthy lifestyle when combined with exercise. His succeeding weight loss and lower cholesterol resulted in a real-life East Coast "tour de pizza" bike ride from St. Petersburg to New York City, where McClellan promoted his concept to numerous fans and ecstatic fraternity houses, whose collective cheering set off a violent tremor that caused their dietary defender to drop an additional five pounds.

Reviews

Tour de Pizza was named one of the best pizza places by the St. Petersburg Times. Matt McClellan, owner of Tour de Pizza, and his 30-day pizza diet were featured on ABC News, My Fox NY, and Fox 13 Tampa Bay. Six Yahoo! Locals award the restaurant an average of 4.5 stars, and seven Yelpers give it a four-star average.

  • Matthew McClellan, owner of Tour de Pizza, wins the prize for thinking big. Thin-crust pizzas, lots of cheese, not too much sauce — but his dream is to install a bicycle in the restaurant that, when pedaled, powers the pizza oven. – Laura Reiley, St. Petersburg Times
  • This place not only has the best pizza and great weekly specials, but also the friendliest staff!! Even if I move further away from Tour de Pizza, I will drive the extra distance because I love this place!! If you are adventurous, try the salad pizza; its my favorite! But trust me, everything from this place is amazing. – Nikole, Yahoo! Local

Tour de Pizza

Matt McClellan calls himself "the fittest man in pizza," and when you see him, you know why. The athlete and author of The 30 Day Pizza Diet is currently training for a body-building competition by eating nothing but pizza, and looking totally ripped in the process. McClellan is living proof that, through smart preparation and careful intake, people can enjoy their favorite foods while getting fit at the same time. He's also proof that pizza isn't the diet boogeyman that it was once made out to be.

McClellan's mission has taken him to media outlets ranging from NBC and the Huffington Post to the Food Network and the Travel Channel, but it's also taken him into the kitchen. In 2008, he founded Tour de Pizza, where patrons still gather over crisp, savory pies cooked to McClellan's own specifications. Favorites here include the Pearscuitto, which mingles pears and proscuitto ham with crumbles of gorgonzola and drizzles of garlic oil. Patrons can also take a bite of the McClellan, Matt's eponymous pie that includes fresh tomatoes, spinach, mushrooms, and spicy sausage.

This place is AWESOME! Great food, outstanding service, and friendly staff. THIS is how it should be. They've raised the bar on quality and kept it there - which makes a huge difference in an industry where corners are regularly cut once you've got business rolling in the door. Highly recommended!
