Restaurant Serves Free Pizza

To Guests Who Lock Away Their Phones

A pizza place in California is serving free pizza, but there’s a snare — diners have to agree to lock their cell phones away while consuming their meal.

A Fresno Curry Pizza Company location is running their “Talk to Each Other Discount” promotion. When a party of at least four persons comes into the establishment, they have the choice to lock their cellphones in one of the restaurant’s lockers. If they can get through the whole meal without checking their phone, they either receive a free pizza for their next visit or to take home. Patrons too can donate the pizza to the homeless, if they opt. The pizzeria posted on Facebook about the promotion, stating, “Our goal is to get families/friends to stop using their phones while eating and talk to each other and communicate more. If you like you may receive a free large (per group) on your next visit (must be at least 24 hours) or you can donate your free large pizza to the needy. We donate pizzas to the homeless in downtown Fresno every month, so we would add your donated pizza along with the many others or you could do it yourself.”

Varinder Malhi co-owner, spoke with reporters about the campaign and said he garnered inspiration from his own phone usage. Seeking to set a good example for his children, he ceased using his cell at home (unless it’s for detrimental work use). After witnessing the benefits, he elected to try it out at the pizzeria. Eligible parties must have at least four persons. Too, everyone in the group has to have a smartphone, and they all must turn it in. To make sure every person is playing by the rules, the cashier will inspect every participant’s phone to make certain they have service. This assures that folks are in fact disconnecting and not simply attempting to seize a free pizza with a past phone.

Pizza fundraiser benefits Stuff the Bus

Blaze Fast-Fire’d Pizza at 2825 Scottsville Road in Bowling Green is celebrating its three-year anniversary Tuesday by hosting a fundraiser in support of Stuff the Bus.

Stuff the Bus is a local organization committed to providing school supplies to children in an effort to ensure every child starts the school year the same way.

During the all-day event, Blaze Pizza will offer $5 pizzas (normally around $8) from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. For every pizza sold, the restaurant will donate $1 to Stuff the Bus.

“Last year we celebrated our anniversary with Stuff the Bus, and the event was so successful that hosting a fundraiser again this year was a no-brainer,” said Jennifer Bowles, general manager of Blaze Pizza in Bowling Green. “I think we can all agree that every child should start the school year off with the tools they need for success.”

Since 2005, Stuff the Bus has positively impacted the lives of children and families throughout Warren County and southcentral Kentucky through its annual school supply drive. The Stuff the Bus live event and supply drive will be July 27 at Bluegrass Cellular on Campbell Lane. During the supply drive, community members are encouraged to donate school supplies.

“We are excited to partner with Blaze Pizza on this fundraiser and help them celebrate three years in the Bowling Green community,” said Kyle Barron of the Stuff the Bus Foundation. “We invite everyone out to get a $5 pizza on Tuesday, June 4, and help us raise money to provide much-needed school supplies to Bowling Green students.”

The fundraiser applies to in-restaurant orders only and is not valid with app, online, phone or delivery orders.

Perfection

Think again before you order a small pizza. The folks at Groupon analyzed data from 230 plain, specialty (think meat lover’s and Hawaiian) and one-topping pizzas from six national chains to find the best value.

Their conclusion is that you should “never, ever, buy the small pizza.”

Buying a large pizza is a better value and cheaper price than buying a small.  

They calculated the surface area of the standard diameter of pizza measurement to determine the best price. Pizza prices from six of the largest national pizza places — Domino’s, Pizza Hut, Papa John’s, Casey’s, Papa Murphy’s and Little Caesars — were factored in. The average price for 2-3 slices of a 14-inch pizza came out to about $5 per person. 

Groupon, an eCommerce business that offers deals on a variety of things to do, restaurants, travel and products, gave huge kudos to Detroit’s hometown local pizza chain Little Caesars for having just one size, a 14-inch pizza. They singled out Little Caesars calling them “…far and away the most cost-effective pizza chain out there.”

No Pork on pizza

Sausage Not Made from Pork

Is this really a big deal?

What what’s the deal with pork? When I first started on this journey I had given up hamburgers for Lent. I was introduced to turkey burgers. It opened my mind that there were alternatives to ground meats and if spiced correctly it would taste just as good.

I had the same thought with pepperoni. What were the alternatives? I was never a ham guy and quite frankly the only pork products I eat are baby back ribs and crispy bacon. Therefore, I wanted to come up with turkey and beef versions fo sausage and pepperoni.

Its healthier than pork and I wanted to make sure that people who didn’t eat pork could try this pizza. All the Abrahamic religions dont allow for pork to be eaten so Jews, Christians and Muslims if they are devout and follow would’t be able to try the pizzas but now they can.

Half Pepperoni & Sausage

Half pepperoni & sausage?

Playing with toppings is great but I love the classics. I also like to use other ingredients to make staples on pizzas. I use beef and turkey to make pepperoni and sausage. Mo one has been able to tell the difference and its not as fatty. Also people with certain diets can also enjoy these pizzas.

I even do enjoy Pineapple on pizza but this is the only thing that is in left field that I would consider. Recently in the Washington Post they addressed this topic.

Tim Carman starts by stating “At some point in the never-ending debate over whether pineapple belongs on pizza, the haters, maybe with tongues pressed against cheek, invoked Godwin’s Law. Yep, they compared those who like the tropical fruit on pies to Hitler. One said they were worse than Hitler. The comparison would become a common insult, occasionally even flung back at the snobs who turn their nose up at a pineapple-topped pizza.” See the full article here.
