NOLA Pizza Joint to Ban HFCS From Its Products →
That’s New Orleans, Louisiana, and high fructose corn syrup, if you’re struggling with the alphabet soup above. The aptly named World’s Healthiest Pizza will get rid of the junktastic sweetener in its food and will discontinue serving drinks or anything else that uses it. Effective January 1. Nice move, World’s Healthiest! [Tip o’ the hat: Jenn Sit]

Burger King's Bacon Homestyle Melt vs. Wendy's... →
Or, ‘Cheesy Date: I’ll Melt With You’ In a week where I was trying hard to eat healthier, I supposedly mumbled “eat a cheesesteak” while napping. Fine, subconscious, you win. Well, you and the boy who’s been clamoring to try some recent limited-time fast food. He’s been hankering for one of those jalapeño cheddar melts that Wendy’s is advertising....

Behind the Whopper Freakout →
A Q&A with the ad agency creative directors behind Whopper Freakout. They used two real Burger Kings in Las Vegas, and the employees were actually actors trained to use the equipment at the King. The Q&A answers one nagging question I had about customers’ reactions and the fact that BK would even go for this stunt to begin with: We had a whole support system there to give people BK...

No Whopper for You! Burger King 'Discontinues' Its... →
Usually, when the major chains try to get into the whole viral video thing, the results are lame, lame, lame. But, OMG, this Burger King video is pretty damn good. In it, they outfit a Burger King with hidden cameras, punk customers by claiming the Whopper has been discontinued, and then record the resulting freakouts. The also prank the customers by placing Wendy’s and McDonald’s...
Eat My Pix: White Rose System →
These were taken at White Rose System in Highland Park, New Jersey, over the weekend. Great burger often referred to as an oversize White Castle burger because of the cooked chopped onions and similar roll. VERY TASTY! —Rob K.
Lunch: New York Pizza Suprema →
New York Pizza Suprema calls this an “upside down pizza,” but it’s essentially a Sicilian slice that goes crust, cheese, sauce instead of crust, sauce, cheese. We had it for lunch today at SliceSerious Eats HQ.
Samurai Sam's →
Or, ‘The Things I Do for You’ When I told Adam I was stuck in jury duty, he said it might be a good opportunity to taste-test a burger I wouldn’t otherwise encounter. So when I saw five or six signs proclaiming “Teriyaki Burger!” I felt I had to try it. And, look, I knew what I was getting into. I’d never eaten at (or even seen) a Samurai Sam’s before,...
A McDonald's Pizza Happy Birthday →

Shenanigans on 27th Street →
Roma Pizza in better days, before it unexpectedly closed last week. Last week saw the passing of Roma Pizza on West 27th Street between Seventh and Eighth avenues. I’m probably speaking for everyone on the block—which is home to FIT and the Serious Eats/Slice office—when I say it was an unexpected event. One evening, we were buying slices there for a quick dinner, and the next morning the...
Dear Slice: Christmas Pizza at Santacon →
This was rather early in the day; I have more pizza and Santa pix when the streets were thronged with (3,000!) Santas. However, I was shooting film today; the other rolls won’t go in for a day or two. Deck the halls with mozzarella! Cheers, Barbara Dear Barbara, If you get those rolls processed and have some more good Santacon pix on it, feel free to send them in! This is great. Viva...

Hanukkah Pie →
From Dr. Baloney on Flickr: “Jessie made these amazing pizza slices for me for Hanukkah.” In the 7 and 10 o’clock positions, pineapple. In the 1 and 8 o’clock positions, Margherita slices. In the 4 and 11 positions, peppers. And onions, and the other two, I’m assuming, are plain slices. Very nice, Jessie! Is that knitting or crochet?

SliceSerious Eats Gift Guide: Pizza-Making... →
Ladies and gentlemen, I have an affliction known as pizzamania. It’s a largely manageable condition that at times flares up and inspires flights of fancy that preoccupy my cheese-addled brain. During one particularly intractable bout, I had the crazy notion that I’d turn my home into a sort of clandestine pizzeria, serving up small pies to guests who would, of course, be seated at...
Pizza Scoresheets: Criteria for Judging Pies →
Pizza Quest Scoresheet, on Google Docs So the Friday after Thanksgiving, Ed Levine emails me some message about how he’s going a pizza tour with Bob Kinkead (of Kinkead’s in D.C.) and Mark Furstenberg (founder of the BreadLine and now a baking consultant and author). Ed’s all like, “These guys are totally serious about pizza and bread. We’re going to Franny’s...
