A cheese pizza is a blank canvas, just waiting to be decorated with pepperoni to symbolize life, onions to symbolize sorrow, and pineapple to symbolize fruit. Eat something meaningful with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of pizza, calzones, and grinders at Twisted Tomato in Midlothian.
Twisted Tomato's chefs face off against hunger with a menu of grinders, pizza pies, and golden brown calzones. Teeth part like knights wearing magnetically charged breastplates to make way for the Totally Loaded specialty pizza, a bubbly crust loaded with cheese, pepperoni, beef, italian sausage, mushrooms, onions, green peppers, and black olives ($13.99–$18.99 for all specialty pizzas). For pie purists, the Twisted Tomato offers bites of cheese, fresh tomatoes, basil, pesto, and parmesan. Friendly servers zigzag or soft-shoe between tables toting pizza disks as well as steak and cheese grinders ($6.49 for half; $8.49 for whole) and calzones stuffed with mozzarella and a choice of two toppings ($6.99).
Although tomatoes top the grocery list each week at Twisted Tomato, the pizzeria's most prominent ingredient might be cheese. It's melted inside crispy pizza rolls and calzones, layered across 7- or 14-inch grinders, and sprinkled over hand-spun specialty pizzas such as the Maui Wowi, which is generously topped with ham, pineapple, and plane tickets to Hawaii. Additionally, parmesan, provolone, and blue cheese abound on Twisted Tomato's salads, and cheesecake makes a sweet ending for a dairy-driven meal.
