Mayor Bill de Blasio bit into some unexpected publicity recently when he was photographed politely eating pizza - with a knife and fork.
At a Staten Island pizzeria, no less.
Now, the act that sent the Internet into a frenzy with chatter about what most New Yorkers scorn as a serious food flub portends to deliver some dough - as in money - to charity.
Goodfella's Pizzeria co-owner Marc Cosentino says he will auction off the infamous fork that de Blasio used in a charity fundraiser.
John Fricke is a CNN Assignment Editor. He cares deeply about pizza. Pies pictured above are from Oakland and Hollywood, California, and Denver, Colorado. They look delicious, right? Their cities didn't make the list, but they're a few of the best new pizza places around the country.
If say to you, "Name the best city for pizza in America," your answer will, of course, be "San Diego." Wait, what?
The world's largest travel website TripAdvisor.com recently released its new list of "Top 10 Cities for Pizza" in the United States. Tripadvisor bills itself as offering "the world's most trusted travel advice," but just how trusted the travel giant will be after publishing this list may be up for debate.
The top list does not the word "Chicago," no matter how deep into the dish you dig.

Summer is absolutely burger and ribs season. Still, pizza is big in the news right now. For one thing, it was among the last meals that the on-the-run whistle-blower Edward Snowden ate in Hong Kong before he split.
In more random news, a pepperoni pie from a local spot called Andolini’s helped coax a Charleston, South Carolina, man off the bridge he was about to jump from. “Great pizza really does save lives!” someone told me.
Whether or not that’s true outside the Charleston bridge episode, there are a lot of awesome new pizza spots out there. Here’s a handy guide.
In perhaps the first bit of "technological research" to involve flying pepperoni, Domino's has developed a drone capable of delivering pizzas.
While the idea is likely just a PR stunt, a Domino's franchise in the United Kingdom posted a video on Monday of the unmanned "DomiCopter" actually delivering two pizzas in the company's signature Heatwave bags.
Despite unemployment being close to 12%, Italians are snubbing traditional jobs like pizza-making.
There are some foods that are so tied to their region, eating them is like a hug from home. Expats seek creative ways to get them shipped or find the closest equivalent in their new city. In the first installment of Hungry for Home, contributor Cara Reedy pines for St. Louis' Provel cheese.
When I moved to New York eleven years ago, I got a lot of blank stares when I told people I was from St. Louis. Some people would say genius things like “Oh right, you have that arch,” or my favorite, “I’ve been in the airport, is there anything in the city?”
People went out of their way to tell me I spoke weirdly. Cab drivers consistently tried to take me on long rides around the city, thinking I was a tourist. I got really homesick after six months.
To cheer myself up I decided to make a St. Louis-style, crisp-crust, square-sliced pizza. I went to my local grocery store to buy supplies. They had everything I needed except the most important ingredient, Provel cheese.
Provel is a little hard to describe. It’s processed, gooey, a little smoky and when heated is takes on the qualities of molten lava. It’s really just delicious and it tastes like home.
Popular U.S. pizza chain Papa John's faces a $250 million class-action lawsuit for blasting customers with illegal text messages.
The plaintiffs allege that Papa John's franchises sent customers a total of 500,000 unwanted messages in early 2010. The spam texts offered deals for pizza, and some customers complained they were getting 15 or 16 texts in a row, even during the middle of the night, according Donald Heyrich, an attorney representing the class.
While you're frying up some eggs and bacon, we're cooking up something else: a way to celebrate today's food holiday.
