Pizza Specials Inspired by 'Breaking Bad'


Are you watching Breaking Bad? If not, what the hell is wrong with you? It's by far the best thing on TV right now. There have been a couple of notable pizza moments in the show's history.

It's titled "Pizza for the Bride" on the Flickr page it comes from, but if you view the largest size, you don't necessarily see her eating pizza. Funny enough, this isn't the first pizza-related wedding item we've had on Slice. Check it out: slice.seriouseats.com/tags/weddings... More
