    Thanks in large part to President Trump’s aggressive deregulation agenda—through which the president has demonstrated a commitment to cutting or restructuring unnecessary, burdensome rules that hamper innovation and growth—the economy is booming. Unfortunately, one poorly considered rule that seems to have escaped his notice will hurt the businesses that provide one of America’s favorite foods: pizza.The U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s (FDA) rule, a byproduct of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act and slated to go into effect on May 7, will require businesses with 20 or more locations that sell highly customizable food items—such as pizza companies, convenience stores, supermarkets...

    HELL—The demonic forces of Satan proudly announced Thursday the debut of 13 new varieties of pineapple pizza, designed to torture millions of humans deceived into consuming the hellish abominations.

    As our two-engine speedboat starts the journey back to Port Denarau Marina, a major port on Fiji's main island, we lurch to an unexpected stop. A seal on the fuel injector on the engine has loosened, so we sputter back to the mainland at half the usual pace. But the possibility of such a transit hiccup is the chance you take when visiting a floating pizza bar in the middle of the South Pacific. Opened in 2013, Cloud 9 bobs above Roro Reef in the Mamanuca archipelago, about 45 minutes off the west coast of Fiji. "Prior to Cloud 9,...

While Aaron Walter, a security guard for Gus' Pizza Lounge, attempted to...

    If you’re a fan of corny commercials featuring prominent NFL faces peddling mediocre pizza while you watch football, we’ve got bad news. The NFL and Papa John’s broke up on Tuesday. The pizza chain announced the news during an earnings call Tuesday afternoon. “We will shift our marketing from the broader NFL sponsorship,” CEO Steve Ritchie said on a conference call with investors. The NFL and Papa John’s released a joint statement that the pizza chain will still do business on a regional level with teams in 22 markets. Schnatter made the statement after watching shares of the company plummet...

    Day-old pizza is God's gift to college students, starving artists and anyone who thought it was a brilliant idea to order that extra-large double-meat at 2 a.m. after coming home from the bar, only to go sleepy-peepy halfway through the first slice. But while cold pizza is a bona fide breakfast of champions, what about room-temperature pizza? Will you get sick if you throw down a few slices of the pepperoni that sat in a greasy cardboard box next to your bed for the last eight hours? The official answer — don't risk it.

    If America cannot have reasonable gun control, can we at least stop criminals from weaponizing pizza? This is one of no fewer than 45 questions that will run through your mind while viewing the below story, a context-free excerpt posted in a local Nextdoor neighborhood forum. What the tale of the infamous Pizza Bandit of Minneapolis lacks in substance, it makes up for in visuals. As captured and shared by the (consistently wonderful) Best of Nextdoor Twitter account, these images of a pizza slice "strategically" wedged in front of a motion sensor light has the subject line "Suspicious activity."

    "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.

    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.”
