Map Of The US Shows Us Which Pizza-less States To Avoid

You finally save enough vacation days, gas money and decide it’s about time to take that cross-country road trip. If you’re a lover of pizza, you’ll want to know which states to hit when your cruising through and which states are simply not worth your pizza-lovin’ time.

Estately did some research and created a graphic that shows the amount of pizza shops in every state in the US.

Pizza-State-Map

As you can see, the East Coast is where you wanna be when it comes to pizza with West Virginia taking the #1 title. Surprisingly, there are a few states we wouldn’t think would have so many pizzerias. Really? Ohio?

Nevada probably makes sense since it’s a vacation hotspot.

Our very own California is towards the bottom of that list at #41 with Hawaii in very last place. Wonder how many ham and pineapple spots are actually in the Hawaiian Islands.

US Army Develops Pizza That Can Last For Three Years

Pizza-Stk-03

In the not-to-distant future, US soldiers will be able to tear into a meal pouch and pull out a ready-to-eat pizza. According to Tech Insider, the US Army has developed a pizza that will last three years.

Lauren Oleksyk, food technologist at the US Army’s Natick Soldier Research, Development, and Engineering Center, says that the meal is a fully-cooked piece of pizza that comes in a package.

The lab specializes in creating meals-ready-to-eat for the military. They had been working on perfecting the pizza for the last five years.

Using Hurdle Technology, the lab was able to stop bacteria from forming. This creates a kind of barrier that protects the pie from bacteria and mold.

While the pizza unsurprisingly won’t be the same as a fresh slice, it’ll taste more like the ones served during lunch time in a school cafeteria. That doesn’t sound bad at all.

The pizza has so far been well-received.

Meet The NY Pizza Shop Owner Who Recruited For ISIS Using Social Media

Mojoes-Pizza

A pizza shop owner in New York admitted to actively trying to recruit fighters for the Islamic State group in Syria. A naturalized U.S. citizen, Mufid Elfgeeh pleaded guilty last week to two counts of attempting to provide material support to a foreign terrorist organization, ABC News reports.

His admission was under a plea agreement that landed him a reduced sentence of 22.5 years in prison.

The 31-year-old owner of the now-closed Mojoe’s Pizza in Rochester helped put one recruit in contact with an English-speaking Islamic Sate contact in Iraq by using a Facebook account. Actually, it was 23 Facebook, WhatsApp and Twitter accounts to be exact.

According to court documents, Elfgeeh used those accounts to ask for donations and state his support for violent jihad and allegiance to the Islamic State and its leaders.

Elfgeeh was arrested in May 2014 for buying two handguns and silencers and planning to kill returning US soldiers with them. Elfgeeh was identified as one of the first Islamic State recruiters arrested in the US.

While in court, Elfgeeh admitted to actively trying to recruit fighters for ISIL. According to authorities, he purchased a laptop and camera for two recruits back in 2014 for a trip to Syria and paid for them to get a birth certificate and passport. He also sent money to a third person in Yemen to pay for their trip to Syria. However, two of those recruits were FBI informants.

Elfgeeh will be facing sentencing in March. His former spot was also known for their chicken and doubled as a grocery store.

This Blog Reveals The Fate Of EVERY RESTAURANT In Gordon Ramsay’s ‘Kitchen Nightmares’

Kitchen-Nightmares-Blog

Gordon Ramsay’s Kitchen Nightmares is a guilty pleasure of ours. While we enjoy both the US and the UK versions, the two are polar opposites when it comes to editing. One focuses on the food and the personalities of the restaurant he comes to save, while the other focuses on the restaurant’s drama. Guess which one belongs to FOX?

While those who watch can get emotionally invested in the restaurants Ramsay visits, it’s tough to keep up with all those that either succeed or fail. Gordon Ramsay’s Kitchen Nightmares Blog has detailed every single episode of Kitchen Nightmares, both US and UK, for fans that have yet to catch up.

There, each individual post recounts the episode with updates as to whether or not the restaurant eventually became successful, stayed afloat, or was forced to shut down.

Fans of the show be sure to check it out. Needless to say, there are MASSIVE spoilers.

Trader Joe’s Ex-President to Open a Grocery That Sells Expired Food

Produce

We’ve all had to empty out our fridges at some point, chucking those jars of mayo and pickles that are a day or two past the date printed on the lid. Looks like there’s a little more life to them than you think.

Former Trader Joe’s President Doug Rauch believes that one of our country’s biggest wastes is all the food thrown away because it’s mistakenly believed to be expired. Each year, the United States discards about $165 billion in U.S.-produced food. The reason behind it is that consumers mistakenly believe the “sell-by” label as a declaration of expiration.

Raunch wants to try to educate consumers as well as reduce produce waste by opening a store that not only carries food other chains won’t carry but also teaches people that those dates on your groceries are more or less just a myth. In May, The Daily Table, part grocery store and part cafe, will open in Dorchester, Mass. The store will carry inexpensive healthy foods and catering. The Daily Table, Raunch specified, is not a food bank or soup kitchen. Rather, it’s a retail store marketed towards the working poor, providing them with more options towards healthy eating.
