Mathematicians Have Now Given Us the Formula for the Perfect Pizza

After mathematically confirming bacon’s awesomeness, the world’s greatest numerical minds have turned their attention to a new, equally noble pursuit: creating the formula for the perfect pizza. As CNET (who created the image above, illustrating the beautiful theorem) notes, the abstract for the surprisingly complex paper sums up how the field of mathematics can lead humanity to such groundbreaking truths: “We investigate the mathematical relationship between the size of a pizza and its ratio of topping to base in a median bite. We show that for a given recipe, it is not only the overall thickness of the pizza that is affected by its size, but also this topping-to-base ratio.” The research was funded by the UK-based restaurant chain PizzaExpress in their on-going pursuit of the mathematically perfect pie …
