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, pasta, calzones, and more at Uncle Joe's Pizzeria, which has four Anchorage-area locations. The practiced pie-peddlers at Uncle Joe's hand-toss their regular, thick, thin, spent-grain-wheat, and gluten-free crusts before decorating them with all manner of toppings and tucking them into cozy brick ovens. Diners can order up one of the menu's pre-designed pizzas ($12.49+ for 12") or conceive their own delicious disk (starting at $10.99 for 12") using self-collected taste-bud polling data and toppings such as reindeer sausage, pineapple, and bacon. Hoagies ($8.99), pork ribs, salads ($2.99–$10.99), and other appetizing pizza alternatives—as well as an assortment of beer and wine—complement the circular savories.
Although Uncle Joe's Pizzeria sometimes features discounts online, this Groupon is still the best offer available.

Uncle Joe's Pizzeria
A pair of skilled fists punches a glob of dough, effortlessly spins it in the air, and plops it on the counter. After crowning the doughy disk with marinara, a medley of mozzarella and provolone cheese, and dashes of spiced parmesan, the hands grasp a wooden paddle to transport their creation to the stone oven to incubate until the sauces sizzle and cheeses ooze over the crispy crust. Since 1993, the chefs at Uncle Joe's Pizzeria have been following these simple steps to create pizzas that now parade to tables in 18 specialty flavors daily or one racy piece of pepperoni when the chefs aren't looking. Along with pizza, each of the four locations sate tastes for the Mediterranean with salads, gyros, and calzones, whose flavors carefully balance with glasses of beer, wine, and bubbly soda.
