You're Slicing Your Pizza Wrong (But Science Can Help)

Old-fashioned triangular slices won't cut it anymore. According to mathematicians, curvy is cooler. Joel Anthony Haddley and Stephen Worsley at the University of Liverpool have developed a technique to create slices in curved and exotic shapes. But it's not easy – they don't call it "monohedral disc tiling" for nothing.

As New Scientist reports, the trick is to cut the pizza into six curved slices, then cut those slices in half to produce perfectly equal slices with unique curved shapes. You end up with six slices with crust and six slices without crust. And if you have nothing better to do with your life, you can keep cutting those slices into even smaller slices, which look weirder and weirder as you keep slicing.
