What You'll Get
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 Italian fare at Trilogy Pizza & Wine Bistro, located on Stone Oak Parkway. This Groupon is not valid towards alcohol purchases.
Trilogy decorates empty mouths with a savory spectrum of traditional Italian comfort fare, most notably applied via custom pizza palettes. Set tongue kittens a-purr with Trilogy cheese bread ($6.99) or creamy spinach-artichoke dip with paper-thin prosciutto ($6.99) before reinventing the edible wheel. Choose one of three flakey crusts ($8.99–$18.99) to suit regional loyalties—California style, Chicago deep-dish, or New York style. Fresh toppings ($1.25–$3.90 each) include eight cheeses—which name brie and gorgonzola among their creamy ranks—as well as 11 meats and 18 veggies such as minced garlic, pepperoncini peppers, and black olives. Pizza traditionalists can choose from more than 20 classic and gourmet pies, such as the Brooklyn, a piquant mixture of marinara, mozzarella, Italian sausage, onions, and peppers sized to feed a small herd ($11.99), a medium family ($17.99), or a roving crowd of hungry, hungry Norsemen ($22.99). Patrons preferring pasta can opt for the spicy baked-mozzarella pasta fuego, dotted with jalapeños, meatballs, and onions ($9.99), or the mixed-grill pasta, which unites culinary superpowers chicken, shrimp, and prosciutto under a banner of creamy basil-pesto sauce to halt the Axis of Beef ($14.99).
Trilogy Pizza & Wine Bistro was named a top-dining pick in My San Antonio. Seventeen Yelpers and four Citysearchers give the restaurant an average of 4.5 stars. Seventy-eight percent of Urbanspooners recommend the restaurant.

About Trilogy Pizza & Wine Bistro
Some of the pizzas at Trilogy have old roots. Though they don't sprout from the soil like the pizzas of ancient times, they're cooked in the tradition of Italian peasants: left inside a brick oven until they're good and crispy. That time-tested simplicity is key at the bistro, where the staff keeps the process uncomplicated in order to play up big flavor.
The menu here is not long—in fact, a large chunk of it is occupied by the build-your-own brick oven pizza. With this option, diners add handpicked toppings to regionally-inspired pies, such as the New York thin crust or Chicago deep dish. There are several non-pizza options, too, including cheesy pastas, meatballs marinara, and a list of worldly wines to complement it all.
