8 intriguing global pizza styles every connoisseur should know

Pizza is the people’s food. Its simple components might create the false impression that pizza itself is simple, but the genius of pizza lies in its ability to be both simple and complex at the same time. While the basic construction of pizza has long been the same, pizza’s evolution is endless. Much like fine art, it assumes a different aesthetic depending on where it’s eaten. The United States alone has a number of different styles of pizza, from New Haven’s apizza to Detroit’s Sicilian-ins...

One legend says there’s a million dollars worth of gold ore in the road fill. According to another, early travelers refused to go back over the treacherous mountain road, “not even for a million dollars.” Though the name could simply reflect the highway’s million-dollar views in the San Juan Mountains. One thing is clear, however — with ...

Covid-19 Diary : Thursday 5 August, 2021

Tuesday saw the world total of reported Covid cases pass through 200 million.  Here in the US we’re just over 36 million cases, and rising now at a new rate of 100k or greater every day.
