Though spinning massive amounts of dough above one's head is an amusing way to display a coin collection, 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 and drinks at Track Town Pizza. The expert dough twirlers at Track Town Pizza craft a savory menu of track-and-field-themed pies, which come in four sizes and dozens of topping-specific varieties. Stretch your mouth muscles with a bite of the 12-inch Olympian ($17.80), an ode to fabled discus-hurler Olympia Dukakis, draped with pepperoni, olives, sausage, and mushrooms with a whole-wheat dough option available upon request. The 12-inch Triple Jump leads the pizza pack in feta-cheese medals ($18.60), while a beer selection of 11 on-tap brews ($3.75) staves off dehydration and abates torch-related wildfires.
Track Town Pizza
Though images of collegiate and Olympic athletes adorn Track Town Pizza, the 100-seat pizzeria's true stars are back in the kitchen. There, the staff has crafted pies the same way since 1977, topping from-scratch dough with housemade sauce, fresh produce, and more than 20 topping combos.
Many of Track Town's specialties pay homage to the eatery's track-and-field theme, including the Pole Vault, whose vegetarian-friendly medley includes cooked tomatoes and roasted-red-pepper pesto. Others just celebrate rich flavor, such as the Beef Taco, a Mexican-inspired mix featuring refried beans, seasoned beef, chips, and enchilada sauce.
Specialties aside, Track Town's culinary team gives diners a chance to create their own recipe from nearly 30 toppings, including smoked oysters and banana wax peppers. Breadsticks, wings, and customizable salads round out the pizzeria's menu, whose edibles can be complemented with a quintet of wines, 11 draft beers, or a carafe of marinara sauce.
