Pizzeria adds chairs to go with that little plastic table

In select locations, Canadian restaurant chain Boston Pizza has started adding 3D-printed chairs to surround that little plastic pizza-saver, aka the pizza table. They call it the Pizza Patio Set.

Adweek:

“Patio season is a big deal for Canadians,” says client senior director of marketing Adrian Fuoco. “This was all about creating something fun that was part of our larger patio season initiative. Ultimately, we found a way to bring together the two things we’re passionate about — patios and pizza.”

If you are not in their delivery zone but do have access to a 3D printer, you can create your own tiny pizza chairs.

Papa John's Pizza CEO steps down after winning coveted approval of white supremacists

If only we could all retire on a high note like John Schnatter! The founder and CEO of Papa John's Pizza has announced his departure only weeks after the brand was cast as the "official pizza" of the so-called alt-right, America's resurgent movement of fascists, neo-nazis, "cultural libertarians" and the like.

Schnatter had blamed slowing sales growth on the outcry surrounding NFL players kneeling during the national anthem. ...

In an interview with The Wall Street Journal, Ritchie is reported saying that he wouldn't comment specifically on whether the NFL protests or the controversy surrounding the University of Louisville athletics department, of which Papa John's has been a large donor in the past, played a role in the timing of the transition.

In that same interview, Ritchie is quoted as saying, “I want to put the focus back on our people and pizza.” He added that he was tapped to eventually succeed Schnatter in 2015, when he was named company president.

Papa Johns Pizza, the breakfast of Nazis

After Papa Johns made a big show of denouncing black football players who kneel to protest police violence, the Nazis made a big show of declaring Papa Johns the official pizza of the white nationalist movement. After thinking about this for maybe a day or two too long, Papa Johns has announced that it would prefer it they did not.

The pronouncement came after Papa John’s CEO John Schnatter, whose pizza is an official NFL sponsor, blamed his company’s recent losses on NFL players protesting police brutality during the national anthem.

Schnatter was widely accused of racism and of making bad pizza. But white supremacists came to his defense.

“This might be the first time ever in modern history that a major institution is going to be completely destroyed explicitly because of public outrage over their anti-white agenda,” Daily Stormer writer Adrian Sol posted, referring to the NFL and adding disturbingly, “The Negro fatigue caused by this whole NFL fiasco is reaching heights that even I didn’t fully expect.”

It's a square 54 inches by 54 inches (for comparison, the average ten-year-old girl is 54 inches tall) and is priced starting at $249.99.

YouTube commenter NOT BASIC points out that it's not a great deal, at least from a financial standpoint:

This is a bad deal if you think about it (pies)*(slices) = 200 slices then compare price

Domino's large 7.99 carryout deal (25)*(8) = 200 slices = 199.75+ Tax < 249.99 *also each pizza is 3 toppings!

Pizza Hut large 7.99 carryout deal (25)*(8) = 200 slices = 199.75+ Tax < 249.99 *also each pizza is 2 toppings!

Papa Johns 9.99 Any Pan Pizza (20)*(10) = 200 slices = 199.80+ Tax < 249.99 *also each pizza is 5 toppings!

Little Caesars 5.00 hot n ready deal (25)*(8) = 200 slices 125 + Tax < 249.99 *Pepperoni or cheese.

I could technically get 400 slices or 50 pepperoni pizzas from Little Caesars for the price of this meaning its double the value!

Just in time for summer: Pizza-flavored ice cream

Little Baby's Ice Cream in Philadelphia is known for their oddly-flavored ice cream (and, their bizarro ads) but they've outdone themselves with their latest icy offering. Since mid-June, the frozen dessert purveyor has been serving up PIZZA ICE CREAM. What makes it pizza-y? Tomato, basil, oregano, salt and garlic. For some people, that just isn't enough pizza pie, so they've taken upon themselves to plop a scoop on top of a hot slice of pizza.
