'Pizza Cones' May Be the Best Thing Ever Invented


pizza conesRarely is there an invention in the food world that gets me really, super duper excited. Maybe it's because my palate is, like, totally unsophisticated or, like, whatever, but I'm sorry, grapefruit foam and flavored soups developed by a brain surgeon just don't get my juices flowing. HOWEVER. However. I have just stumbled upon a game-changer in the food world, and I'm beyond thrilled. They're called pizza cones, and ladies and gents?

I think I'm in love.

The imaginative genius behind this marvel is Mike Warren and he first taught the world about his pizza cones via Instructables, a website that allows users to share what they make. Using an empty soda can, Mike shows us how to make our own pizza pies into portable cones of cheesy deliciousness.

Truth be told, I've never had trouble eating a regular old slice of 'za on the go; the shape is inherently handy, so I don't really buy into how much more easy it is to eat a pizza cone, or how much cleaner it is, but that's where my disagreements stop.

The cheese to crust ratio looks terrific in them and slap my ass and call me Sally if these don't look hella fun to eat. I think Mike's got an illustrious culinary career ahead of him, and if he ever decides to run for Senate, he has my vote. He's a visionary and a zeitgeist.

I see nothing stopping this man, except maybe some radical super-orthodox Jewish fundamentalists -- they attacked an ice cream parlor in Jerusalem because they believe that licking cones in public promotes promiscuity. As long they don't find Mike and his ingenious creation, I think there's a bright future for handheld, homemade pizza cones. They're like Hot Pockets, only awesome.

I can't wait to make them. What do you think?

I think it looks like a piece of pizza folded up into a cone shape

Meh. I only eat pizza made in two places: my house and a local pizzeria. Pizza cones look sloppy, and I like my pizza traditional, not wet and over-cheesy. Also, I'm not super wild about the potential health ramifications of cooking in a soda can.

Looks tasty! And like it might be fun to have my 5 y/o help me make! I need to visit this website and see how I too can have them. Because let's face it, it looks like a great idea for a kindergarteners birthday party!
