Pizza Wire

The Wall Street Journal reached out to Metro Pizza's pie maestro John Arena to explain the false economy of a serving up a 99-cent New York slice. The WSJ cites Arena's additional bonafides as a lecturer of pizza history and culture at the University of Las Vegas. Manhattan is currently suffering from a glut of very cheap, but low quality slices. The conflict has created "valiant and bold" holdouts from long-standing pizza purveyors who have refused to lower prices at the cost of taste. Arena is quoted as calling the downsizing, "a giant step towards killing the classic New York pizza experience." He'll be sharing more of his knowledge later this fall when he returns to UNLV to present an expanded version of his pizza curriculum. [Wall Street Journal]
