PMQ Pizza Roundup for September 25

In case you haven't heard, Pope Francis has hit the states, but a Philadelphia pizzeria owner says papal pizza boxes are over the top. September recalls memories of the great sacrifices made by first responders in the Twin Towers attacks and a Trenton pizza peddler has chosen to treat police officers with free pizza all month. With law enforcement in the news for what some call heavy handedness, one Middletown, Ohio, policeman showed his compassionate touch in delivering pizza to a homeless man.

You've heard the childish quip: If you like it so much, why don't you marry it? A St Louis comic loves St. Louis-style pizza so much he has agreed to marry a slice in front of the St. Louis Arch. Dogs aren't that dumb. They simply get their owners to take them to Spin Neapolitan Pizza in Olathe, Kansas, for the Ciao Bow Wow and some pizza brainiacs at McKendree University near St. Louis are earning their credentials in an academically challenging "Pizzanomics" course.

Back on the farm–Pleasant Grove Pizza Farm in Minnesota, that is–this nature lover said yes to his girlfriend's pizza proposal. Finally, an operator with Your Pie near Oklahoma City gave away free pizza in exchange for donations to the Oklahoma Special Olympics. So happens it's a promotion born of love as Jason Martin's son Jordan is a Special Olympian himself.
