Woodville Pizza Bar, in Adelaide, was named a hot spot by contact tracers after learning that a supposedly highly contagious COVID-19 patient had visited the restaurant.

    A victim of domestic abuse calls 911. But to avoid enraging her abuser, she pretends to be ordering a pizza. Clever move on her part. And thankfully the 911 dispatcher picked up on what was going on. Audio of the call is at the link.

    Pizza is always there for you. At your eighth birthday party with all your friends and that clown, it was there for you. During your late-night college cram sesh, it was there for you. After a long day of work, a hot cheesy slice was there to comfort you — and maybe a bottle of wine too. Pizza is a staple of American meals, which means it’s pretty easy to come across. It can sometimes feel like there is a pizzeria around every corner, but there’s just something about a great pizza. Here is where to find the 101 best...

    “I cannot sleep anymore,” he reportedly stated. “I start shaking every time I hear a scooter on the street.”It’s one of the oldest pranks in the (telephone) book: ordering an unwanted pizza to someone’s house. (It’s even happened to the Queen of England!) But at what point does the gag stop being funny? For a man in Belgium, after nine years of pizza delivery, he was finally fed up enough to turn to the press. Jean Van Landeghem and the pizzas that have plagued him for nearly a decade have become a global phenomenon after the Belgian site Het Laatste...

    America's pandemic-induced love affair with pizza shows no signs of slowing down. That's a huge relief for Papa John's, helping to speed up its turnaround plans. The pizza chain said Tuesday that its North American sales rose 24% over the past four weeks. Internationally, sales were also strong, jumping 23% for the period. Pizza has thrived as other restaurants struggle mightily during the coronavirus pandemic. Pizza has been synonymous with delivery for decades, which is crucial when people are afraid or barred from eating inside restaurants. And it's cheap -- helpful during the worst recession since the Great Depression. "Papa...

    Various shortages have struck during the coronavirus pandemic, ranging from toilet paper (which was caused by panic buying during the early days), coins, and even aluminum cans.

Restaurants from New York to South Dakota have reportedly seen a significant increase in price, with the cost nearly doubling in some areas. According to the news outlet, other meat products saw temporary price increases during the pandemic....

    If you thought pineapple on pizza was blasphemous, brace yourself because someone just made a far worse combination. It seems that aliens are real, and one seems to have actually escaped Area 51 because they’re trying to make kiwi on pizza a thing. Yes, that fuzzy egg-shaped fruit with a green, seedy center. Sliced and scattered all over the glorious surface of a delicious pizza. I never thought it would be possible to feel my taste buds recoil. No offense, of course. The fruit is delicious on its own. More so when it’s paired with yogurt. So the fact that...

    Domino's Pizza has dropped a promotion offering free pizza to women named Karen after it was met with a backlash. In recent years, the name "Karen" has been used as an insult to describe white middle-aged women who are perceived to be obnoxious or racist. The pizza franchise's New Zealand arm initially said it wanted to give "nice Karens" a break from negativity. But some said it was tone-deaf, ignored more important issues, and "rewarded privilege".

    CNBC ^ | July 1, 2020 | Amelia Lucas
    NPC International, the largest U.S. franchisee of Yum Brands’ Pizza Hut, filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy on Wednesday. The company operates more than 1,200 Pizza Huts and nearly 400 Wendy’s restaurants. In contrast to most of the restaurant industry, Pizza Hut is one of the rare companies to report same-store sales growth in April and May, thanks to higher digital and delivery sales. But the coronavirus pandemic follows years of slumping U.S. sales for Pizza Hut, and NPC has struggled with a debt burden of roughly $1 billion. Seeking Chapter 11 protection means that NPC can continue to operate while...
