The problem with menus is that they get all sticky and you can’t find what you want, but this interactive table program created by Chaotic Moon Studios for Pizza Hut takes care of those problems. It’s built to work with a touchscreen table so you can select the size and toppings for your pizza without a paper menu. It even lets you build exactly what you want like adding extra cheese or splitting the toppings on one side. It’s got a dessert menu too, and there are even games at the end to keep you busy until your pizza is ready.

In what is undoubtedly the most useful application of math to date, these graphs will show you why you should always order a large pizza, every time. It does not matter if you’re not going to eat it all right now. You will eat it eventually and it will be way cheaper than buying just what you want to eat at the moment once you crunch the numbers.
Quoctrung Bui at NPR compiled data from 74,000 pizzas at 3,678 different pizza places and found that, dollar for dollar, you should order a large every time and just plan for leftovers.

You can only find a Pizza Hut like this in Tokyo, Japan where this Kanda neighborhood location has become the “Otonokizaka branch.” This is all in honor of a popular anime series called Love Live!
The whole restaurant has been themed as well as their delivery bikes and even the pizzas boxes. The promotion is only for a limited time and this Pizza Hut will return to normal on March 30th.

If there was ever a pizza slicer that was designed with the hipster in mind, it was surely the Fixie Pizza Cutter. This slicer is humorous take on the average hipster’s preferred mode of transportation, otherwise known as the “fixie” or fixed-gear bike. It’s available in some very flashy colors: neon pink with a blue finish and yellow and black bumblebee. The Fixie slicer is rather eye-catching, so it will definitely look great next to that solar-powered espresso maker or brew-beer-at-home kit or whatever else hipsters keep in their kitchens.

The Legend of Zelda was first released on Feburary 21, 1986. We’re a few days late with our birthday wishes, but hopefully Link doesn’t mind. Blogger denacem celebrated the day by assembling an impressive Link pizza. It looks like olives were used for the words, green peppers for the hood, and you can also spot ham, bacon, and maybe pineapple? I don’t know if Link has ever looked so tasty.

The Domino’s delivery guy in the video shows up to an apartment building to drop off a pizza, but the customer doesn’t really want to come downstairs. So how does the delivery guy solve this particular dilemma? Simple. He throws the pizza up to the customer’s third-story window.
Those are some mad delivery skills. (And yes, it might be fake, but it’s still pretty entertaining to watch.)
Check out the video after the break (quick heads-up: There’s an F-bomb or two uttered in amazement by the YouTuber)…
This video might make you think twice about ordering pizza for dinner tonight. The District Manager of a Pizza Hut in West Virginia was too busy to walk to the bathroom, so he decided to urinate into the nearby sink instead. Ew. Pizza Hut was not pleased when they found out about the incident.
“First of all, we are embarrassed by the actions of this individual. Pizza Hut has zero tolerance for violations of our operating standards, and the local owner of the restaurant took immediate action and terminated the employee involved. While the isolated incident occurred during non-business hours and did not involve any food tampering, we follow strict safety and handling procedures and the restaurant has since been closed. We apologize to our customers of Kermit, West Virginia and those in our system who have been let down by this situation.”
The local county health department and city health officials shut down the Pizza Hut after seeing the video and now the restaurant is getting a good cleaning before it will reopen.

About a week ago, a natural gas well exploded in Bobtown, PA causing injuries, possibly a death, and a fire that burned for 5 days. Chevron, who owns the well, had their community outreach department send out apology letters to the residents of Bobtown and included a small token of goodwill.
A gift certificate for Bobtown Pizza, good for 1 large pizza and a 2 liter bottle of soda.
Insert facepalm here.
Chevron addressed the controversy in the following statement to Gizmodo:
The situation at the Lanco well site in Pennsylvania remains serious and teams are working around the clock to safely approach and shut in the well. There has been considerable construction activity adjacent to the site, resulting in increased traffic and congestion in the area. Recognizing that our neighbors have been affected by these activities, we are out in the community every day to listen to and address concerns. We have also offered a token of appreciation for their patience during this time, and our commitment to the community goes far beyond this and our outreach is ongoing.
Our thoughts remain with the family and friends of our missing colleague and we appreciate the strong support we have received from nearby residents as we work to respond to this incident in a safe manner.
You can see the letter Chevron sent out to the residents after the break.
Nick over at Dude Foods is burdened with an overabundance of pepperoni, and while looking for a way to effectively dispose of said cured meat, he came up with a recipe for a pepperoni-crust pizza.
Inspired by a previous experiment that involved creating pepperoni “chips” (done by baking pepperoni at 425 degrees), Nick made a circular layer of pepperoni and baked it for roughly eight minutes. The pepperoni ends up sticking together, thus creating the perfect meaty platform for all the cheese, veggies and meat that your pizza-fueled hear desires.
He does give a quick warning though: This recipe is still in the works, and the actual pizza is a bit flimsy. So be careful with how much toppings you pile on.
