Hand-tossing a pizza is one the best methods of achieving a thin crust, second only to running dough through an office printer or punching it in the face. Nibble on thin-crust comestibles with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of pizza at Uncle Joe's Pizzeria, which has four Anchorage locations.
The practiced pie peddlers at Uncle Joe's hand-toss a menu's worth of fresh dough disks before decorating them with myriad toppings and tucking them into cozy brick ovens. Families can share an order of mozzarella breadsticks served with marinara sauce ($4.99) before divvying up a Greek specialty pizza ($16.99–$24.99) donning garlic sauce, gyro meat, black olives, feta cheese, and Olympic gold medals. Nosh on another predesigned pie such as the barbecue chicken pizza ($15.99–$23.99), or create your own pizza sporting a choice of toppings, crusts, and sauces that include gluten-free options ($11.99+). Uncle Joe's comestible crew also fashions subs baked from rolled pizza dough, gyros sandwiches, and Italian classics such as the palate-popular, homemade lasagna ($10.99). End meals with a slice of New York–style strawberry cheesecake ($3.99) that prompts bites sweeter than "thank you" notes sent from Candy Land.
Though Uncle Joe's Pizzeria sometimes features coupons online, this Groupon still offers the best deal 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.
