Leftover Pizza + Waffle Iron = Delicious Crispy, Gooey, Cheese-Stuffed Snack

Today I'm going to reveal to you a method of reheating pizza that is superior to any other I've tried. A method that converts stale, cold, lifeless pizza into a crisp-crust, gooey-cheesed, brown-edged, stretchy, saucy, hand-held treat. A method so good that it'll make you want to order fresh pizza and let it go cold just so you can use it. And we're going to do it in the waffle iron. More

From The Mailbag: Thanks Miss Ellie, Love Hambone

We opened up the Serious Eats Mailbag this monday to find a package addressed to Official Serious Eats Mascot and Chief Financial Officer Hambone (a.k.a. Jamón). Inside the box was the most darling pizza-shaped dog toy, complete with squeaker in the crust. The toy came to us from long time Slic'er dhorst's dog Miss Ellie, whose friend Tammy Johnson seems to be a master at creating cute things out of cloth over at Fessenden Hill Creations. More

Pizza Prize Causes Rise in Connecticut Traffic Tickets Issued

[Photograph: mjb on Flickr] Connecticut state troopers got a gubernatorial smack on the wrist after a memo went around that incentivized officers to issue more traffic tickets in order to have a chance at winning a pizza. The memo was meant to motivate the troopers with some friendly competition, but when word reached the upper levels of the command chain, the pizza program was deemed illegal. I bet all the recipients of Connecticut traffic violations wish they knew that their out was to offer the cop writing the ticket a slice. [Via courant.com] About the author: Meredith Smith is...

Dancing Pizza Goes Missing!

This popular piece of pizza, known by locals in Portales, New Mexico as Pepe, has gone missing. The Papa Murphy's pizza mascot was allegedly stolen from a local gymnasium during a basketball game, before getting a chance to break out some sweet dance moves. Papa Murphy's is holding out home that the local hooligans that stole Pepe will return him, unharmed for a $200 cash reward—no questions asked. They just want their lovable plush pizza back. More

Talk About a Pizza Revival!

I've felt like pizza has saved my life many times, but rarely does a slice have a starring role in a true heroic act. But this adorable 7-year-old, Rita Lawler, has put pizza on the heroism map. When her mom wouldn't wake up, she gave her a slap in the face with a piece of the pie. Once that didn't revive her mom, she knew that it was time to get serious about getting some real help. Add this litmus test to your first aid repertoire. You may not have smelling salts, but pizza, VERY likely! More

Pizza Flavored Steamed Buns: Stupid, or Genius?

At a convenience store In Japan, you've got a window full of rice balls in flavors ranging from pickled plum to spicy pollack roe, skewered beef guts or fish cakes simmered in broth, or—a relative newcomer to the snacking scene—Chinese mandou-style buns, commonly called simply man in Japan. The usual suspects are there—pork, cabbage, mushroom—but this time I was interested in the single neon-orange specimen with the intriguing name pizza-man. This, I thought to myself, has the potential to stagger me with its genius. More

'Pizza Slice,' Sung to the Tune of Lady Gaga's 'Poker Face'

An email from a BRILLIANT Slice'r: "Singing along to Lady Gaga's 'Poker Face' one evening while making pizza I absentmindedly changed the chorus to 'Pizza Face.' The image brought me up short with disgust, as you can imagine, but there seemed potential in the idea of a pizza parody of the song.... Here it is; I hope you like it. —drbubbles" More

The Prestigious Collection from Domino's Japan

In the limited time collection of "Prestige" pizzas, topping combinations include: the snow crab and shrimp gratin with a "rich and luxurious" white sauce finished with truffles; Mangalitsa pork, known as Hungary's "edible national treasure", with asparagus and Bordeaux sauce; and fresh mozzarella with beef stew and broccoli. (Hmm. One of these seems less prestigious than the others.) But the best part is that they can all be combined in the Quattro Prestige. More
