Eh, close enough.
I can’t tell whether to be grossed out or amazed.
Brooklyn agency Oak Studios and artist Daniel Blackman have created an app called “Pizza Compass” which displays maps of nearby pizzerias along with a pizza-based UI will tell you whether or not the location is open and how far away it is.
According to Blackman, he was out late with friends with the idea emerged. “I designed it on a Tuesday morning and by Wednesday afternoon the fellas over at Oak Studios joined in and started developing it,” he says over email. “Our goal was simple. To get create an app that would change human kind for the better, while eating pizza.”
The app is available here (iTunes link). Hit the jump for a promo vid.
A Papa John’s delivery guy in Atlanta recently got carjacked at gunpoint, and pressed on to deliver the pizza on foot before notifying the police. Apparently this was due to his fear of being fired if the pizza wasn’t delivered. Seems like he’s cut from the same cloth as this awesome UPS driver.
Let’s hope he got a massive tip.
Despite the fact that the announcement was released on April 1st, Little Caesars’ Deep! Deep! Dish Pizza is in fact real. The new offering consists of double-decker deep dish pizza with a crisp bottom crust and a chewy crust inside.
The pizza will be a fixture on Little Caesars menus nationwide, selling for $8 plus tax.
Pizza Hut is launching their new Crazy Cheesy Crust as a limited release here in the states. The creation features 16 detachable pockets of bread filled with a five-cheese blend, and will sell for $12.99 with 1 topping. Spokesman Doug Terfehr explains the company’s strategy:
“by not making it an over-the-top indulgence…people would buy the pies repeatedly rather than just trying them once as a novelty.”
Of course, he’s referring to the over-the-top specialty Pizza Hut pizzas you can find abroad like this insane version with a cheeseburger crust.
You may have a grand collection of replicas from television and film, but do you have any food themed items? If not, you can add this pizza prop from Nightmare on Elm Street. It’s the Soul Pizza, and it comes in a licensed pizza box and has audio of the souls pleading for their lives. As you can imagine, it would be ideal for pranking friends.
Pre-order now to receive the pie in Q3 (and yes, that is called ordering way ahead).
