That’s correct. People misunderstood. There was a school of thought that I had eaten my first pizza, but of course how could that possibly be true? I would have had to have stayed locked up in a cellar. But nevertheless, this was my first slice of pizza, which I was only eating because my fiancée and I were a little hung-over yesterday morning and she said what we need is pizza and a soothing drink — and she was right. It solved the problem. But, in fact, it was my first slice, and when it was brought over to me, my first comment was “There’s no knife and fork.” Of course, I was mocked for thinking that I could eat a pizza slice with a knife and fork.
Patrick “Jean-Luc Picard” Stewart • Explaining that when he said he was eating his first “slice” of pizza, he was eating his first piece of New York-style corner-shop pizza, sold in slice form, sans knife and fork. The kind you fold over. Which everyone seemed to misunderstand when he tweeted about it.

How to solve world hunger with pizza
The idea of a universal food synthesizer sounds like something straight out of the Jetsons or Star Trek, but thanks to a $125,000 grant from NASA, a 3-D food printer may become a reality.
Anjan Contractor, a senior mechanical engineer at Systems and Materials Research Corporation, is already working on bringing the idea to fruition.
NASA’s interested because storing the various ingredients as a power greatly extends their shelf life for lengthy travel through space, but Contractor wants to keep all of the recipes open source, so the general public could eventually benefit as well.
So how will the pizza be made?

Pizza will be one of the first items printed because of its natural layers of ingredients. First, a layer of dough will be printed and baked at the same time using a heated plate at the bottom of the printer. A layer of tomato base will follow — made of powder, water and oil — then a protein layer will top the pizza.

Defense Distributed, why couldn’t you have been “Dough Distributed”?

Six reasons you should never eat Papa John’s pizza
1) The pizza is terrible. 2) The guy above wants to raise prices and cut worker hours as a result of Obamacare. 3) They mass-text-spammed people in the middle of the night, leading to a $250 million class-action lawsuit. 4) “Papa John” Schnatter owns this house. 5) They don’t have lava cakes. 6) Namesake competitor Jimmy John’s is bringing back sprouts soon, and they deliver, too. (EDIT: Though, as it turns out, #2 applies to Jimmy John as well.)

It’s worse to imagine a world with Obama getting a second term than it is to imagine a world without pizza. Because with Obama in a second term, there will be no pizza. For anyone.

Chuck E. Cheese — the rodent — is getting a makeover
I remember begging my mom to take me to ShowBiz Pizza Place when I was a kid. I guess they’ve got to do something to get people in the doors these days.

When I was a kid, the pizza was enough. We didn’t need no fancy-schmancy 3D. Animatronics all the way.

Nutritionally-balanced pizza set to debut in the UK; fish and chips coming soon!
Professor Mike Lean, from Glasgow University’s human nutrition department, has partnered with businessman Donnie Maclean to create and market a truly healthy frozen pizza. By modifying traditional recipes with some modern ingredients — like using seaweed in the dough to cut down on sodium —  Professor Lean says the two have perfected a recipe which is safe to eat three meals a day. Every day. Forever. Of course, the two don’t recommend doing so, but they stand behind the claim and say their pizzas taste just as good if not better than their competition. It’s worth noting, though, that their competition is named “Tombstone.” (Photo via BBC News) source

Presenting the coolest food truck we have ever seen. Former baseball scout Jon Darsky had to ditch the food truck-standard step-van in favor of a Caterpillar truck when designing Del Popolo — his 33,000 pound wood-burning brick pizza oven on wheels. Now, he can be found roaming the streets of San Francisco, serving pizza prepared the way it was meant to be! Want to grab a slice? Keep up with Darsky’s current whereabouts on Twitter or Facebook.
