This Week in Pizza

 

 

 

 

 

What if eating two or three pizzas a day gave you all the vitamins and nutrients you need? That's the claim behind Eat Balanced, a Scottish brand of frozen pizzas developed by a University of Glasgow nutritionist. Made with a ground seaweed crust (for salty flavor) and containing half the calories and 60% less fat than your average pizza, these pies come in three varieties – Spicy Chicken, Cheese and Tomato, and Ham and Pineapple – and supposedly earned high marks in a survey of 100 taste testers.

Angelo's Pizzeria in Lakewood, Ohio, raised $35,000 last week in a fundraiser for three women who were recently rescued from 10 years of captivity in a Cleveland man's home. The promotion ran all day last Thursday, and proceeds for every pie sold went to support Amanda Berry, Gina DeJesus and Michelle Knight, who were allegedly kidnapped and held captive by Ariel Castro. Employees also donated their hourly wages for the day as part of the promotion, which earned television and newspaper coverage all over the city and created lines that spilled out onto the sidewalks throughout the day.
