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 $21 worth of pizza, pasta, salad, and subs at Verrazano Pizza.
The pizza professionals at Verrazano Pizza have been crafting pies with hand-tossed dough since 1978. All New York–style pizzas ($10.99–$14.99) roost in authentic brick ovens before chefs adorn them with toppings including bacon, jalapeños, garlic, pineapples, spinach, and tomatoes ($1–$1.50). Specialty pizzas embrace the likes of deep-dish ($15.99) and sicilian crusts ($21.99) and come with topping combinations such as the Verrazano Special—a medley of pepperoni, sausage, green pepper, onion, mushroom, and black olive. Whereas salads don ranch, blue-cheese, and caesar dressings ($3.99–$7.99), chicken fingers ($7.99) wag knowingly at wings ($7.99) and fries practice their synchronized dog-pile routine ($1.99–$4.99). To cultivate full-meal customization, patrons can massage uvulas with Italian eats in Verrazano’s dining room or call ahead to have pizzas ready and waiting to be taken home or to edible discus-throw competitions.
