There is plenty else new in Kansas City besides the eight-block Power & Light District. Like pizza cones.

Kornet Pizza is an Italian company that markets the innovative way to eat pizza, and its first U.S. franchise is in the food court of the Oak Park Mall in suburban Overland Park, Kan. The idea behind pizza-in-a-cone is to provide the convenience for shoppers eating on the go. The company says it uses all-natural ingredients and “original Italian recipes in line with Neapolitan tradition.”

We tried one and, indeed, it was easy to eat. The crusty cone was full of cheese and meat and didn’t drip as we walked through the mall.
