This Cup O' Pizza recipe is the quick and easy version, using store-bought ingredients.

Pizza Cones Attack NYC!

The Slice section of Serious Eats has reviewed the newly opened K! Pizzacones in midtown Manhattan. They resemble a bagel bite pizza being sucked into an inter-dimensional flavour vortex.

Check it out!

May a piece be with ya,

Hey Kids! Look a Frisbee!

I can't remember going to Shakey's more than once, but this makes me wish I had. Here's a close-up examination of the collapse of Shakey's Pizza, through the lens of Youtube. As you will see, Shakey's has changed pretty substantially since its founding in 1954... and not for the better, I'm afraid.

First up, a tribute to what made Shakey's great in the first place...

The bears eating pizza with the little "Goldilocks" is a little bit creepy, but it sure makes me want some pizza.

What to wear?!

Can't decide on which outfit to wear while eating Cup O' Pizza?
Try one of these!

What say you all?

I'm no football fan, but...

This seems to me to be as good a reason for some free pizza!

Shield's restaurants offer free pizza tonight to celebrate Lions win

Is a program I can get behind!

Sure, it's only a free small for one or two folks, or a large for more peeps, but hey, free pizza is free pizza! And just think, we'll probably only have to wait another two years before we get it again.

It's the most wonderful time of the year!

I can't believe I missed it! National Cheese Pizza Day was September 5th! Why, that was even a Saturday this year!

I tend to think that cheese pizzas are often under-rated. I mean really how often do people think to themselves, "I'm gonna order pizza and its not gonna to have any toppings!" I mean, even vegetarians order green peppers or onions or something. Am I right? Am I right??

Well, ok, maybe that's a broad generalization, but regardless, I think cheese pizza gets a bad wrap because of the lack of interesting cheese used. I once made a pizza with fresh buffalo mozzarella, blue cheese, and some other random cheese I had and it was very interesting (and delicious). And it would be pretty easy to broaden the cheese pizza selection by making it Mexican with chihuahua cheese or Greek with feta. So, I'd like to give a belated shout out to cheese pizza and National Cheese Pizza Day!

Just as a heads up, here's some other pizza holidays to make sure and mark in your iphones, blackberrys, wall-calendars, or where-ever else you need to so you remember to eat pizza!

- February 9th - National Pizza Pie Day (sorry Cup O' Pizza, we'll have to get you your own day!)
- October 12th - National Sausage Pizza Day
- November 12th - Pizza with Everything Day

And finally because it won't all fit on just one day, the second week of January is National Pizza Week. And the best week ever? The second week of February is The "American Pizza Bake Week"!

Happy Holidays, Everyone.

Piece out.

"Honey, now hear me out..."

We here at Cup O' Pizza have the coolest friends.

Case in point, our old pal Mark Graban.
Not only is he both a master in the field of lean manufacturing AND a founding member of the Ypsilanti Sound Machine...  Well now he's gone and figured out how to convince a spouse that building a backyard pizza oven is a great idea! Take notes, fellas...

Mark makes the Slice Blog!

Tonight, Pizza Belongs to Me.

What would Cup O' Pizza be without my favorite scene from the film that started it all?
This is not a rhetorical question. Post your answers in the comments.

What about Clemente's, Vitale's, und Der Pizza Haus?

The Detroit Free Press has ranked the top pizza pies in the area.

A couple of confusing omissions and inclusions, but on the whole, looks pretty good. I've got many a pizza to be introduced to and re-acquaint myself with.
Though how Pizza Papalis continues to wind up on "best of" lists is beyond me. I'm not the only person I know who feels like total crap after eating it. Sure it tastes good going down, but if you're doubled over a half-hour later, the flavour is moot!
Just my two centons.
