Pizza has been a popular menu item in Italy and around the world ever since it was named "Sexiest Dish Alive" by People magazine. Dine on and drool over an appealing meal with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of pizza and more at Vesuvius Wood-Fired Pizza in Ames.
The crafty couple, Scott and Deb Coldiron, recreate the traditional Italian pizza with a menu of wood-fired pizza. In an imported, handcrafted oven, burning only seasoned hardwood, the pizza preparers cook up their tasty two-dimensional dishes at over 800 degrees. They do as the Neapolitans do by using locally produced ingredients when possible and baking fresh dough daily. The pizza pros proffer a selection of signature concoctions, such as the pie splattered with La Quercia dry coppa, Stickney Hills goat cheese, arugula, and crushed red pepper ($10), and the smoked provolone, goat cheese, fresh mozzarella, rosemary, and basil cheesily chatting atop hand-worked dough ($8). Personalize the belly-filling experience by topping a palatable pie with one of the 23 topping options, such as the toasted pine nuts, goat cheese, and prosciutto sausage, or by toting along childhood photos (build-your-own pizzas start at $7, with additional toppings $1 each extra).
