Pizza is a round dough-based snack. It is oft enjoyed in the space with toppings of cheeses and meats.

In Hackspace, none of the pizza goes unused. After the doughey inside is eaten, the crusty outside is then also eaten.

In popular culture

As well as ninja hackers, pizza is known to be the preferred sustenance for ninja turtles.

Cooking Pizza

Today I discovered that it's possible to cook a 2 quid pizza express pizza from tesco in the grilling machine. Just fold it in half, and stick it in at power level 3, then wait until you can smell it from the main lab area. -alecjw
