A Guide for Every Pizza-Eating Situation

New, 1 comment

Congratulations on making the decision to eat pizza! You are one step closer to a) calling in sick from work and watching "Ellen" in your pajamas, b) listening to your friends haggle for hours over toppings before finally deciding on some half-and-half compromise, or c) sobering up to face the sunrise. With so many different kinds of pizza floating around the city and so many different reasons to eat pizza, it's important to embark on your pizza-eating enterprise with a game plan, which is why we've created this helpful cheat sheet, the better to help you determine the best pizza option for whatever strange, borderline illegal situation you may find yourself in.
