File this one under things you just didn’t see coming. Macaulay Culkin has formed a band called The Pizza Underground. What do they sing about, you ask? Well, they sing The Velvet Underground‘s songs with the lyrics altered so they’re all about pizza. You’ll get songs like Cheese Days, Pizza Gal and I’m Beginning To Eat The Slice. You can download all the songs for however much you see fit to pay and then you too will be wanting pizza for diner.

Natural Machines, a Barcelona-based company, has been working on a new 3D printer for grub called the Foodini and there’s been a major breakthrough: the company tweeted a pic of the machine actually making a pizza! It printed out the dough and pizza sauce, and then they applied the herbs and spices by hand.
Looks like Natural Machines is farther ahead in the 3D pizza printing game than NASA.

Cook your pizza like a boss – a dancing, disco-loving boss. Architect Lukas Galehr designed this spectacular rotating disco ball pizza oven for the new Disco Volante pizzeria in Vienna. Seriously. The restaurant wanted to emulate the vibe of the “Italo-Disco” era of the 1970s and 1980s. It’s a smart move to include such an eye-catching design and gimmick. Honestly, I’d visit the restaurant once just to check out this oven.
Check out more photos of this wacky oven after the break.

Yeah, so the Papa John’s Cinnapie pictured above that looks like dough dipped in radioactive mudslide sludge was the focal point of a very interesting discussion on Reddit. A delivery guy offered a simple solution to the problem:
As a former pizza delivery guy, I can confirm that toppings falling off a pizza is pretty common if the pizza isn’t allowed to sit for at least a minute or two before put into the car. Whether the pizza is in an insulated bag or not, 90% of the time it’s put on a car seat, which is slanted so all that cheese just slippery slides the f*ck right off that pizza bitch. That’s why I used to put a bottle in the nook of the seat, under the pizza, to keep the boxes level.
A second reader noted that he managed a pizza joint in Buffalo and requires that his drivers use a piece of 2×4 lumber to counteract the sloping of the seats. Either way, this is a simple trick that anyone transporting a pizza in their car should use.
This pizza cocktail is the creation of Perry Vidalakis of Trattoria Neapolis in Pasadena, California. He came up with the idea to celebrate National Pizza Month and the concoction sounds like a pretty good replica of the real thing. It’s got tomato water, basil-infused vodka, ghost-pepper infused vodka, porcini powder, muddle basil and a mozzarella and parmesan cheese foam. Yeah, I’m not so sure about all that but I’d still give it a try.

This meaty monstrosity was created by Pizza Hut UK, and honestly, I’m not too sure what to think–it looks like a vaguely angry coronary just waiting to happen. But anyway, if you feel like upping your cholesterol level by a quintillion points, this “Cheeseburger Crown Crust” pizza features soft-crust pockets filled with mini-beef patties topped off with mozzarella cheese. It also comes with ketchup dip and can be covered with your favorite toppings too.
Pizza Hut locations in the Middle East debuted a similar cheeseburger pizza last year, which begs the question—when’s the U.S. getting our own Frankenstein burger pizza? Come on, Pizza Hut! Show the U.S. some scary pizza love!

Scary campfire stories are a tradition, but what counts as scary? If you’re pizza, then the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles have got to be high on the list of things to fear.
