    "Cold pizza, microwaved pizza, store-bought frozen pizza... It doesn't matter what kind of pie is on your plate this morning - it's probably a healthier breakfast than a bowl of cereal. If you're considering eating pizza for breakfast, there's a good chance you're wildly hungover. Or maybe you're just feeling plain old lazy. You might feel like a piece of trash for eating America's favorite greasy food before 10 a.m., but you really shouldn't. It's got protein. It's got carbs. It might even have vegetables. That hot slice of cheesy goodness is a balanced breakfast if we've ever seen one.........."

    The New Jersey pizza place that may be the closest link to an ISIS leader doesn’t look like much. There are red café umbrellas out front and its menu offers the usual tangled multicultural fast food mess of Italian, Mexican, Chinese and Greek food. You can pick up the same Hawaiian pizza or baked ziti there or at the dozen other Albanian pizza places dotting this part of the Jersey Shore. "Are you incapable of stabbing a Kafir [non-Muslim] with a knife, throwing him off a building, or running him over with a car? Liberate yourself from hellfire by killing...

    Consumer Reports rates 26 veggie, cheese pizzas for taste, nutritionYour family might have a favorite frozen pizza that you eat as-is or even add some toppings to, but maybe there’s a pizza in the store that’s even healthier and tastier than your go-to. Consumer Reports food experts evaluated 26 different frozen vegetable and cheese pies for taste, nutrition and price. "We consider the nutrition profile and also evaluate for taste. Ideally, a store-bought frozen pizza should taste like it was just put together with fresh ingredients. And it’s a high bar, but Consumer Reports found some pies that came close,"...

    Jonathan Cheban, a.k.a. foodgod, prides himself on eating everything, but it seems Kim Kardashian‘s BFF has reached his limit. While stopping by Krave It in Queens, Cheban experienced the “Three Course Pizza,” a pizza covered in fries, onion rings, burger patties, bacon, burger buns and deep-fried Oreos. The pie is then baked for 10 minutes and topped with powdered sugar and barbeque sauce — only Cheban flatly denied the barbeque. “Oh really? Ugh,” Cheban told Krave It owner Vishee Mandahar. “No, but I don’t want to ruin your creation.”

  • Tainted Pizza Inspires Missouri Proposal for Tougher Sentences for People Who Harass Police

    Among the hundreds of changes in state law that might be considered in the Missouri Legislature next year is one that centers on a pizza gone bad. It started with a Gasconade County man who was unhappy with the local police after he got pulled over by a cop for having a loud muffler. It escalated when the police chief later stopped by his place of work to pick up a pizza for his kids. Rep. Justin Alferman, R-Hermann, said the proposal he has introduced stems from the outcome of the December 2016 incident involving Hermann Police chief Marlon Walker...

    The fight happened when the woman "[D]id not receive what she believed to be an adequate amount of Sriracha sauce," Seattle police reported.Sriracha on pizza? It's a divisive issue. Some people think Sriracha on pizza tastes great, but some pizza purists think it's heresy. A woman solidly in the pro-Sriracha-on-pizza camp got into a fight over the issue at a Capitol Hill pizzeria early Monday morning. The woman was irate after employees at Sizzle Pie apparently refused to give her an "adequate amount of Sriracha sauce." The woman, age 36, called 911, telling the dispatcher that the employees were yelling...

    When a UNESCO World Heritage Site comes to mind, perhaps it has the natural splendor of the Great Barrier Reef or the imposing mastery of the Pyramids of Giza. Now one may look no further than the humble pizza for world heritage status. No, not the frozen kind, the old-school kind baked in a wood-fired oven. On Wednesday Pizzaiuolo, the art of Neopolitan pizza-making, was added to UNESCO's Representative List of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity. UNESCO says the designation is meant to safeguard and raise awareness about forms of cultural heritage — often passed down from generation to...

    ALBANY -- The spiritual leader of an Albany mosque repeatedly called a phone number in Syria that an FBI report indicates had been used to gather terrorist intelligence for Osama bin Laden, according to classified documents unsealed late Tuesday in U.S. District Court. The FBI report, which was based on information from a confidential informant, was among several once-secret documents that federal authorities say raise questions about Yassin Aref's connections to terrorist organizations across the Middle East. Aref, 35, a Kurdish refugee who moved to Albany with his family in 1999, is in jail without bond while awaiting trial on...

Except for when there’s a funeral. “If you’re in a bad mood or sad, when you’re grieving the death of a loved one or have a broken heart, you should never even touch dough; just stay away from it,” said my friend Mako Kavtaradze, a born-and-bred resident of the capital, Tbilisi, and executive director of Georgian spice company Spy Recipe. “If you’re not in a happy mood, we will be able to tell when we taste the khachapuri...

The Louisville, Kentucky-based company is a major NFL sponsor and advertiser, and Schnatter said on an earnings call on Nov. 1 that "NFL leadership has hurt Papa John's shareholders" and that the protests "should have been nipped in the bud a year and a half ago." The company tweeted a statement offering to "work with the players and league to find a positive way forward."

    John Schnatter, the CEO of Papa Johns who appears in nearly all of his chain’s TV commercials, is blaming a massive drop in his company’s revenue on kneeling NFL players. Papa Johns is a big sponsor of the NFL, but it seems highly unlikely that a few men protesting police brutality could torpedo an entire pizza chain. Perhaps “Papa John” should look at his business practices before blaming others, as Ring of Fire’s Farron Cousins explains.

    NEW YORK - Sales growth at Papa John's (PZZA) is slowing, and the pizza chain is blaming it on the outcry surrounding NFL players kneeling during the national anthem and falling NFL ratings. The company, which is a sponsor and advertiser of the NFL, said customers have a negative view of the chain's association with the NFL. The company also cut its earnings growth expectations for the year and Papa John's stock fell about 10 percent Wednesday. "NFL leadership has hurt Papa John's shareholders," said the chain's CEO, John Schnatter, in a call with analysts Wednesday. "This should have been...
