Patty's Pizza goes virtual, saves you dough [Updated]
This classic pizzeria recently closed its brick-and-mortar Santa Monica location after 22 years, opting to offer its tasty "Take-and-Bake" pizzas through delivery only via a new online service. (The pizzas are fully prepared but require 12 minutes in the oven once you get them, which makes them as fresh as can be when you finally dig in.) Pizza choices are as unusual; think pear and blue cheese or pistachio and rosemary. This is the perfect time to place an order with Patty's because the site is currently offering $5 off your first online order and $10 off all online orders over $100. You were planning on throwing a big party sometime soon, right?
The new delivery service, called "Patty's on the Run" doesn't charge sales tax or tack on delivery charges to your order and delivers to the following locales on the following days: Santa Monica, Venice and Marina del Rey (Tuesday to Sunday); Malibu (Saturdays); Pacific Palisades (Sundays and Wednesdays); and Beverly Hills (Thursdays). It will be closed Mondays.
Prices range from $8 for a small pizza to about $20 for a large with three toppings.
