Greatest Pizza Moments of 2014

Not only is pizza one of the most delicious foods on the planet, it captures people's imagination like nothing else. As we say goodbye to 2014, the Huffington Post compiled a list of the 27 Greatest Pizza Moments of the Year. That's right, there were 27 notable pizza moments this year and someone put them into the list. See what I mean about capturing our imaginations?

Pizza was everywhere in 2014. It even left the culinary world and entered into décor. The list includes the Pizza Bed, a full bed set that looks like a delicious piece of pepperoni pizza. There's also the coolest kid on earth with a pizza hat, sunglasses, backpack and t-shirt that had me wondering if a grown man could pull that off that look. The answer, sadly, is no, but the outfit is outstanding.

Creativity is king in culinary arts and pizza moments list captures that from the pizza cake (yes, I'll take one for my birthday) to one of the characters of the year, Olaf from Frozen.

The movie Frozen is hard to escape, it's even made its way into pizza kitchens.

Pizza also pushed restaurants to be more creative this year. The ad below shows an hilarious and creative way to reinvent the everyday, mundane salad, using pizza.

The unofficial 28th pizza moment of the year was the Baking Steel Champagne Pizza. Todd Van Luling, the man behind the list, gave me a call after we made our $150 Krug pizzas. Here's our conversation.
