Quote of the Day: Glide on the Pizza Train

Quote of the Day"You know what they need to start? A food train trend. So get this — you get one train car, an old one that is fueled by a wood-burning engine. Here's the genius — the wood would also power the wood-fired pizza oven! I know nothing about pizza ovens or trains, but that sounds like it would be easy to rig. Maybe the people at Kesté or Grimaldi's in NYC can figure that out." —Aziz Ansari, in Bon Appétit More

'Fresh Wooden Pizzas'

[Photograph: Engrish Funny] My friend, former colleague, and language maven Talley just passed this photo on to me, saying, "'Wooden pizzas.' Sort of a fun shortcut for saying 'pizza cooked in a wood-fueled pizza oven.'" Quoth the sign: Enjoy our delectable Italian cuisine, fresh wooden pizzas, homemade pasta and seafood at Down Town Restaurant and Café. You can get the wooden pizzas at Amman, Jordan's Belle Vue Hotel. [via Engrish Funny]... More

Strange Delivery Situations

Recently, I've rediscovered Reddit and love crawling it, looking at the weird pizza-related crap on there. Like this thread (admittedly a month old) directed toward delivery drivers asking about the weirdest outfit a customer answered the door in. This response is great for the "related note" bit: I think my favorite would be the time a guy in a pirate outfit with beer in his beer answered the door. On a related note: Two Halloweens ago, while delivering for my locally owned pizza place, I dressed up in a Domino's Pizza guy outfit. Every reaction was awesome. (Edit: to clarify... More

Probably Something to Be Thankful For

From the Onion: "AUBURN, WA—James Stallard, 29, experienced feelings of profound loneliness and alienation Monday upon discovering that his home lay just outside the delivery zones of two nearby Domino's Pizza franchises. 'I am invisible, a nonexistent entity in the eyes of Domino's,' Stallard uttered while staring blankly out his third-story window...."... More

Thanks, 'Urlesque'! Slice Places Among 'Best Pizza Websites'

The neato-links blog Urlesque had some kind words to say about Slice today, naming it one of the "Best Pizza Websites." I had to laugh when I read Drew Grant's take on the site: Slice: "America's Favorite Pizza Weblog!" the tag line of this SeriousEats site decrees, which made me wary of some ancient Angelfire or Geocities background. But the blog is up to date, with the most recent entry being Awl founder Choire Sicha's homemade recipe for a pie, which gives this "weblog" the hipster seal of approval. Other good entries include a link to where to buy the... More

Choire Sicha's Pizza-Cooking Secrets

A pizza from Choire Sicha's oven. [Photograph: The Awl] Ah! Finally. I've been waiting for Awl cofounder Choire Sicha to post about his pizza-cooking secret since just before Thanksgiving, when he said ... Okay, so, now I will tell you the second of my four cooking secrets. (The first is pie crust. The third secret is how to make pizza, which I will tell you at a later date. It's a GOOD SECRET too. The fourth secret, however, might have to remain secret forever.) Sicha finally posted his pizza secrets on Tuesday. He plays fast and loose with some... More

Crispycones appeared on the October 15, 2009, Colbert Report. Stephen gives it both a Tip of the Hat and a Wag of the Finger for being too easy to eat. The cone-shaped treat solves an age-old problem—namely the difficultly inherent in eating a slice of pizza. And, hah! The Crispycones website has embedded the Colbert video.
