1. What do you do if you're a mathematician with a love of pizza? You create an equation that describes the perfect pizza, of course! Eugenia Cheng of the University of Sheffield in the UK did such a thing, coming up...

Damn. It took me half an hour just to convert imperial to metric. By time I've worked out the perfect pizza I would've already starved to death.

You go to Bay Ridge Brooklyn, NY to find the perfect Pizza at Grandma's Original Pizzeria.

Thanks for the heads up, I'll take a walk there and give it a bash seeing I'm only 8000 mi/12900 Km from it.

Tell Mr. Cheung his 15 minutes of fame are over. And he should put some cheese, tomato sauce, and peperoni on this:

And we wish him, "bon appetite"......

Have the recipe to one of the greatest Chicago pizzas, Uno/Due, and have baked it, of which Numero Uno pizzeria (nationwide) is a variation. The noticeable ingredient is cornmeal in the crust. Got it from Julia Child on pbs.

The true beauty of pizza lies in its near infinite variability. Each and every element can be customized and tweaked to consumer's taste. Add in the idea of a half and half and the permutations reach beyond mere mortal comprehension.

I have been on the long journey to find a 'perfect' pizza since my first taste back in 1970. So far, no luck. The journey continues.

I can also make one from scratch got my pizza stone and also you can make it on your gas grill using the pizza stone. Making your own taste just as good except for the bay ridge ones are the best just like you seen in the movie Saturday Night Fever, where tony goes to Lena pizzeria gets two slices.
