Half of Americans prefer cold pizza for breakfast, survey shows

It turns out, we don’t just grab that cold pizza slice from the fridge because of laziness, we actually prefer it. A recent survey revealed that 53 percent of Americans would choose eating cold pizza over traditional breakfast fare. (I mean, duh.) In other words, if given the option of eggs, bacon, toast, pancakes, or waffles, OR cold pizza, we would go for the leftover pizza. While this might sound like a huge health no-no, nutritionists have weighed in on our preference for pizza in the in a.m., and largely, it gets a thumbs up. The average slice of pizza and a bowl of cereal with whole milk contain nearly the same number of calories. However, since pizza has more protein, it can keep you full for longer, meaning you might eat less calories overall. Pizza also doesn’t have the added sugars of a lot of popular cereals. The survey gathered…

9 genius food-related inventions given to the world by women

From frozen pizza to flat-bottomed paper grocery bags, women inventors throughout history found it difficult to get the patents — and the recognition — they deserved. But these nine brilliant women, and their inventions, persevered and helped make the world of food what it is today. 1. Flat-bottomed paper bags Paper bags used to look more like envelopes or cones, and their design didn’t allow them to stand upright on a table, making checkout or doing just about anything with your bag of groceries nearly impossible. America’s bags got an upgrade in 1868 when cotton mill worker Margaret Knight invented a machine that made paper bags with a flat bottom. But credit for the design didn’t come easy. A man named Charles Annan saw her drawings and received a patent without giving Knight credit. The female inventor took Annan to court and after a legal battle earned her own patent…

Why ordering a large pizza is always a better deal

The next time you size up and order a large pizza, convince yourself it’s because you’re a smart, savvy shopper — not that you just want an excuse to eat more pizza. It turns out that ordering a large really is always the best deal.

You’ve probably been hanging out with some friends before and decided to order two 12-inch smaller pizzas, thinking that overall you’re getting more pizza to feed the group. But not only are you probably paying more, you’re also getting less pizza. Don’t believe it? It’s called the Pizza Equation, and ASAP Science has the math to prove it.

This makes the larger pizza the better deal. This is because…

Pizza put 2,300 people in the hospital last year

Pizza is more dangerous than you think! The cheesy dinner option is always a great choice of food for any occasion, but according to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), saucy pies landed 2,300 people in the hospital last year with pizza-related-injuries. From lacerations from cutting pizza to burns and molten cheese, it seems everyone’s favorite food has a dark side. Others wound up getting treated for injuries resulting from falling in a pizza joint or even falling out of bed while reaching for a pizza — don’t act like pizza in bed isn’t a thing. The pizza stats were part of a the CPSC’s National Electronic Injury Surveillance System (NEISS) injury report release associated with consumer products and emergency room visits. Pizza isn’t the only food product landing people in the hospital. In 2017, there were so many people cutting themselves attempting to slice avocado, “avocado hand” is…

Kale pesto pizza is delicious, healthy option for pizza lovers

We’re never too old for a simple slice of cheese pizza, but the best part of being an adult might actually be the whole new world of pizza toppings we open ourselves up to. Seriously — you probably started to order veggies, and even things like pears, on your pizza somewhere around the time you got excited you could pay all your bills on time. Since then, you’ve never looked back. The great pizza awakening also means you no longer need red sauce to consider it a proper pie, so I don’t need to tell you that pesto can go on pizza. But wait! What if I said that this pesto can be made of kale — the ultimate adult vegetable — and you’re going to love it! My friends (adults when they want to be) were shocked to find out my pesto sauce was made with kale instead of the basic basil they…

All-you-can-eat pizza festival runs out of pizza

An all-you-can-eat pizza festival really only needs to have one thing: pizza. Well, organizers of an event — the Notting Hill Pizza Festival in England — were left saying dough (err doh)! Bellmonte Life ran the event and blamed a broken oven and “overzealous appetites.” Lines lasted an hour for a single slice of pizza, hardly what you’d expect at what should have been a buffet. Two tickets — that promised unlimited pizza — cost around $32, so a piece every hour or so did not satisfy the crowd. This Notting Hill ‘unlimited’ pizza festival is a disaster @bellmontelife. Been here one hour, queued for 50 mins, managed to get 1 slice of pizza so far. Joke. pic.twitter.com/4bicd9VbtI — Alex White (@ATYWhite) May 12, 2018 And when festival-goers actually got a slice, it didn’t look that great: Notting Hill #Pizza Festival is not a good experience AVOID AT ALL COSTS…
