Pizza Cones. Pizza in a cone.

Remember this exchange from the movie "The Jerk?"

Marie: You live here? Oh, it’s nice. Did you decorate it?
Navin: Yeah, I got all this stuff from the old Cup ‘o Pizza place before they tore it down.
Marie: Good pizza. (the two of them are eating pizza in a cup)
Navin: Oh, this is the best pizza in a cup ever. This guy is unbelievable. He ran the old Cup ‘o Pizza guy out of business. People come from all over to eat this.

We laughed because it was so stupid.


Two companies are set to battle it out for your Pizza-cone business. KONO PIZZA & CRISPY CONES. KONO is already operational in New Zealand, Kuwait, Spain & Greece. CRISPY just opened in L.A..

I don't know what to think. I haven't eaten one - but I'm not ready to fork over the franchise fee just yet. Someday - maybe soon - this may be the way we eat pizza. It'll surely make eating pizza in the car possible. Maybe that's the inspiration. Grab extra napkins.

Where do you put the extra cheese?

I suggest they smother it in cheese, lettuce, tomato & special sauce. Then wrap it in a soft tortilla with a layer of re-fried beans. Then wrap that in a corn tortilla with a layer of Monterey Jack cheese. Then take a deep fried Gordita shell, smother it in Guacamole and wrap that around the outside. Then bake it in a corn husk filled with salsa. Then wrap it in a Parisian crepe, filled with egg, sausage & portabello mushrooms. Then roll it up in a blueberry pancake, dip it in batter and deep fry it until it's golden brown.
