Celebrate National Pizza Month with Your PBS Friends

Celebrate National Pizza Month with Your PBS Friends

I love pizza. You love pizza. We all love pizza. And nothing would make us happier than an entire month dedicated to pizza. Which is why we’re so happy that September is National Pizza Month!

We’ve put together a small collection of shows and clips all about everyone’s favorite food for you to enjoy almost as much as we all enjoy pizza:

Christina Cooks: Back to the Cutting Board – Pizza!

If Christina could have only one meal before she died, it would be pizza. She love the yeasty perfume of pizza baking, the spicy gravy smothered on top; the veggies, the crunch of the outer crust, the breadiness; the flavors. Nature’s perfect food, in her view, began in Naples, so it’s off she goes to see how pizza became the food she loves so much. This episode is only available to watch on the PBS App with Passport.


Under the Radar Michigan

On this episode of Under the Radar, we celebrate something we all have in common, our love for pizza! And in Michigan, they’ve got about every different kind you can crave. We’ll grab a thin crust, some Detroit style, and an American classic. Then we’ll go Neapolitan, and even, dare I say, Chicago style. Get ready to explore the cool crust, sauces, and toppings that make Michigan a great place for pizza.


Reactions – Better Pizza Through Chemistry

We show you how two simple changes can turn cardboard-y pizza into award winning pie (okay, award-winning might be a slight exaggeration, but we awarded ourselves a win, so deal with it).


Amy Labelle’s Cooking With Kids – Pizza

Make classic simple pizza dough from scratch. This dough has minimal ingredients that are easy to work with. The end result is a pizza dough that is versatile and delicious, ready for your favorite toppings!


NOVA – The Area of a Circle, Explained with Pizza

One of the oldest calculus problems, finding the area of a circle, can be visualized using a pizza. By dividing it up into ever smaller slices and laying them out next to one another, eventually you get something close to a rectangle.
