Pizza Power 2017 – A State of the Industry Report

Pizza Power 2017 – A State of the Industry Report
To survive in a fiercely competitive market, pizzeria operators must adapt to a rising demand for delivery, ease of ordering and “clean” ingredients in 2017. Pizza makes everything better, but the world’s greatest food had to work overtime in 2016, which will long be remembered as the year we’d rather forget. Atrocities, natural disasters, the Syrian refugee crisis and the nastiest presidential election in recent memory left us all crying out for comfort—and pizza, as always, was there for us, dripping gooey, melty cheese and salty, savory goodness over our woes and worries. So it should come as a...

Hold the ‘Pizza’

Hold the ‘Pizza’
I am mystified why Calendar dedicated so many pages to the lousy sitcom “Two Guys and a Girl,” a show that is the broadcast equivalent of lint as well as the ultimate example of “safe TV” (“It Only Looks Like a Ball,” by Craig Tomashoff, Jan. 7). Perhaps we’re all missing something and future generations will unearth “Two Guys and a Girl” and discover its hidden genius, elevating the episodes with “A Pizza Place” still in the title to the status of those lost “Honeymooners” shows. In the meantime, I’ll watch repeats of...

The Rise of the $38 Pizza, Exclusive and Elusive

The Rise of the $38 Pizza, Exclusive and Elusive
New York is well known for its obsession with cheap pizza: the $1 slice, the sporadic price wars, the hand-wringing over each new increase in the average cost. Then there is the other, pricier side of the city’s pizza addiction: the $7 slice (with a specialty topping) at the revered Di Fara Pizza in Midwood, Brooklyn. Or the advance tickets required for a $25 lunch at Margot’s Pizza, a pop-up that opens roughly one Saturday a month in Clinton Hill, Brooklyn. This week, the Sofia Pizza Shoppe, in the well-heeled Sutton Place section of Manhattan, is upping the ante, with a $38 pizza that requires an...

Indiana gay pizza uproar just the latest media ploy to distract you from the greater truth: We are all being oppressed, poisoned and bankrupted

Indiana gay pizza uproar just the latest media ploy to distract you from the greater truth: We are all being oppressed, poisoned and bankrupted
(NaturalNews) The primary function of the mainstream media is not to inform you, but to distract you from what’s really happening. When it comes down to it, nobody really cares whether a tiny pizza joint in Indiana wants to cater a gay wedding with pizzas. (Who caters their wedding with pizza, anyway?) The far greater issue happening today is how we are all being enslaved, oppressed and exploited no matter what our sexual orientation, religious background, race or country of origin. The leftist media tries to drive a wedge between the people of America by staging contrived culture wars. The more...

Congress pushes to classify pizza as a ‘vegetable’

Congress pushes to classify pizza as a ‘vegetable’
(NaturalNews) In an absurd attempt to fight back at federal regulations that greatly limit the amount of junk food that can be served as part of government-funded school lunch programs, Congress has proposed a new spending bill that classifies pizza as a “vegetable.” Reports indicate that the bill would allow for just two tablespoons of tomato paste to be considered a serving of vegetables. Recommendations made by the National Academy of Sciences’ Institute of Medicine back in 2009 for reforming subsidized school lunch programs include reducing the use of starchy vegetables like...

Pizza boxes and food containers contain cancer-causing chemicals, alarmed scientists warn
(NaturalNews) Widespread industrial chemicals found in pizza boxes and household dust are dangerous to human and environmental health, a group of environmental scientists has warned in an editorial published in the journal Environmental Health Perspectives on May 1. The editorial, known as “The Madrid Statement,” was signed by 200 scientists from 38 countries. It urges restrictions on the group of chemicals known as PFASs, and warns against adopting alternatives to PFAS without first subjecting them to rigorous safety testing. “[R]esearch is needed to find safe alternatives for all...
