Um, Yeah, That's Not Really Pizza--Or a Burger

Not the "Burger Pie," but probably about as appetizing. Photograph from Hell to the Yeah, Son! on Flickr Laura Hoopes at the Christian Science Monitor recalls growing up pizza-deprived in Charlotte, North Carolina: I had never heard of pizza when Jeanne first mentioned it, so I asked my mom if she knew what it was. She said no, but she had read about it in a recent magazine article. She took the magazine out and we read that it was a pie with tomato sauce, some kind of meat, and cheese.Mom said she would try to make one. She... More

Dear Slice: Peter Reinhart's New Pizzeria

Clicking in to the Slice inbox today, we've got an email that's been sitting in my tips jar for far too long. Apologies to Kyle, who sent it in, and to you folks reading this. I should have passed this info along sooner. Hi Adam, Just wanted to pass along a little article that I saw in the Charlotte Observer regarding a new pizza joint headed by [renown baker and author of American Pie] Peter Reinhart, among others. It looks like it opened up [early September], but I haven't been able to find too much information about it yet. I'd... More

Good New York Style in North Carolina?

Dear Slice, Got to your site from the NY Times article on Domino's Brooklyn Pizza. Since I live in NC now, this is what passes for pizza down here. I am originally from Brooklyn and haven't had a good slice of pizza since the last time I was in NY. I notice that the state of NC doesn't have a link on your site. Does this mean that there is no place in the whole state to get a good slice of pizza? I live near Matthews, which is Southwest of Charlotte. Any suggestions would be appreciated, although we aren't... More

Larvae Found on Pizza?

Candler resident Lori Hancock, 29, said she bought three pepperoni Hot-n-Ready pizzas at the restaurant Saturday afternoon for her son’s outdoor birthday party at a friend’s home. A few hours later, the homeowner noticed something unusual on the last pizza, Hancock said. “They looked like tiny bits of rice clumped together,” she said. Hancock took the remainder of the pizza to her home, where later that evening she saw what she said were live maggots underneath the cheese. You know, I watch a lot of CSI, and I think I heard it mentioned on there that maggots are primarily found... More
