What You'll Get
If you've never had gourmet pizza, then what you think is pizza might in fact be a cunningly disguised pretzel. Today's Groupon clears up the confusion: for $15, you get $30 worth of gourmet pizza and drinks at ZZ’s Pizza Company in Walnut Hills, slightly more than a mile from downtown’s nightlife and attractions.
The menu at ZZ’s Pizza Company overflows with gourmet pizza, soups, pasta, and other hearty comestibles. Find peace for a grumbling, disgruntled stomach by picking through a wedge salad’s iceberg lettuce, sliced roma tomatoes, and crisp bacon topped with house parmesan dressing and gorgonzola cheese ($4.50 for a side, $6.50 for an entree). A dish of lasagna ($12) or a homemade meatball hoagie ($9) with onions, peppers, tomato sauce, and provolone will help ward off unruly appetites and down-on-their-luck comic-strip cats. Elsewhere on the menu, pizzas abound—choose your size and cover it with the perfect assortment of regular and gourmet toppings ($7–$12, plus toppings). Select one of ZZ’s recipes, such as an 8-inch four-cheese pizza ($9) crowned with smoked gouda, mozzarella, gruyere swiss, and romano cheeses. Or opt for the delicious seafood pizza, a deep-sea-caught specialty that features lobster, shrimp, and crab meat ($11.50 for an 8-inch edition).
ZZ’s stages its pizza presentations without timeshares, instead choosing fresh-made sourdough, whole wheat, and honey dough crusts, painted with fresh tomato sauce that's prepped in-house. Meals can be sweetly resolved with homemade desserts such as the piled-high bananas ($5), layers of nature's perfectly packaged fruit cosseted in a crust with chocolate, whipped cream, and banana filling. Customers can use this Groupon for the pizza house’s daily happy hour (4 p.m. to 7 p.m.) as well as the half-priced bottles of wine that are lobbed in slow motion at guests every Tuesday.
Dine-in only. Can be used in conjunction with daily specials.

- Our experience was so good that we picked up a pizza to-go a few days later. The Mediterranean (sun dried tomatoes, basil, spinach, artichoke hearts, pine nuts and capers on a whole wheat crust) was $16 for the 12-inch and just as tasty as everything we had previously. – Brian Cross, CityBeat
- The place is spotless (my own personal issue w most neighborhood places is they never seem clean), the staff is friendly and the food was great. We left full and happy. – Dee, Urbanspoon
