On the one hand, this sweater looks enticingly delicious. On the other, I still can’t eat it. And that makes me HANNNNNGRY (which is a word combining the two miserable qualities of being both hungry and angry). So for that reason alone, I’m not particularly fond of this pizza sweater. Consider also that I’m not entirely sure of pizza sweater’s origins (Alien baby? Pizza the Hut?) and this pizza sweater is a confusingly delectable Do Not Want.
Okay, okay, celebrity chef Jamie Oliver was actually using this glorious table of junk food to prove a point about the dangers of obesity as he kicked off a healthy cooking and nutrition initiative in Melbourne, Australia. I really admire Jamie and his work, but if I’m being completely honest, looking at this picture gave me a serious pizza craving.
It’s not that Claire Simmons doesn’t want to eat any other food, it’s that she physically can’t eat anything other than pizza. The 33-year-old British woman has what’s called Selective Eating Disorder, which means that she hasn’t been able to eat anything other than plain cheese pizza in 31 years. A rare subset of eating disorders, Claire’s selective eating disorder causes her to balk at any other food–making it virtually impossible for her to choke down anything other than tomato pie three times a day.

Three designers — Yu Kyung Ha, Won Min Jung, and Kwon Young Hee — won this year’s Red Dot design award for their ingenious new creation: a pizza box that can be broken up into individual pizza-sized plates. How has this never happened before? I’m a huge fan of anything that helps better engineer my ability to get pizza into my mouth. Designers, we salute you. [Gizmodo]
Seven-year-old Rita Lawlor knew what to do when she found her mother unconscious — slap her with a leftover piece of pizza. When the slice didn’t revive her mother, Rita decided to call 911. Her mother is doing well and little Rita was saluted for her heroism by the Sarasota County Fire Department this past week. I think she was onto something with this pizza slapping technique. Pizza could save lives. [The Daily What]
I would like to take a moment to express my admiration for 28-year-old Colin Hagendorf, the dude who ate slices of cheese from 362 Manhattan pizza joints and blogged about each and every one. Even after his daunting endeavor to do a thorough taste investigation of the state of affairs of the NYC pizza scene (he says that seven out of 10 places serve sucky slices), he’s still down to eat more. “I still love eating pizza, but I just got sick of writing about pizza … I will always eat pizza. There’s nothing better for lunch or dinner … I eat pizza. That’s what I do,” Colin says. The dedication. The passion. The stomach of steel. My kind of man. We could eat slices together forever and ever. Colin, meet me at Ginos Pizza and we will see if that sauce is really as “delicate” as you say. [NY Daily News]
You’re drunk, you’re hungry, and operating a stove doesn’t seem too difficult. Why not try making a pizza? Why not? Well, watch Hannah Hart’s hilarious “My Drunk Kitchen” foray into making pizza and find out why it might be better to stick to eating a block of cheese straight out of the package. [YouTube]
I’m not sure how I feel about SpaghettiOPs pizza, which is a real thing a guy name Adam Kuban made, documented and presumably ate recently. On the one hand, SpaghettiOs and pizza, together. On the other hand, that’s a lot of bread on pasta. But on the other other hand, I used to like eating spaghetti sandwiches as a kid, before I knew what a carb was. Keep reading »
GQ: What can you tell about a man by the type of pizza that he likes?
Herman Cain: [repeats the question aloud, then pauses for a long moment] The more toppings a man has on his pizza, I believe the more manly he is.
GQ: Why is that?
Cain: Because the more manly man is not afraid of abundance. [laughs]
GQ: Is that purely a meat question?
Cain: A manly man don’t want it piled high with vegetables! He would call that a sissy pizza.
– Herman Cain took a moment from maybe-sexually harassing any woman in an arm’s length to answer some questions about pizza for GQ. After all, he is the former CEO of Godfather’s Pizza. And people say this man shouldn’t be president! [GQ via Mediaite]
What part of this amazing “Pizza Party” rap from Fly Guys do I not love? Trick question: I love all of it. ALL OF IT. Please, why doesn’t every rap song reference Papa John’s crack butter sauce? “I got pies on pies on pies. Pies for days,” say the Fly Guys. Better believe it. [Buzzfeed]
