Uno’s 9-grain pizza crust … bet you can’t name the 9 grains!

April 9, 2013

Having spent 3 tours of duty in Chicago, I’m a deep dish pizza aficionado … and loyal to Uno’s — the best!

Well, last trip in, the server directed our attention to a new twist on the menu:

Nearly 70 years after inventing deep dish pizza, last year Uno’s introduced a new deep dish crust in honor of National Pizza Month.

Uno’s invented deep dish pizza in 1943 and this is another industry first: the nine-grain deep dish crust – which likely cannot be found anywhere else in the world..

Being a curious kinda guy, I asked the server to name the 9-grains.

She named 2 and took off to get the manager.

He named 2 more, but we were still 5 short.

We were talking about the incident at a fam get together this weekend.

The real-time iPhone-Google searches came up short.

But, a friend (and loyal Homa Files reader) dogged for the facts.

Best she could find: Some dude named Bob throws 10 grains in his whole grain hot cereal.

Now, all we have to figure out is which grain didn’t make Uno’s cut.

Anybody know?

Thanks to MET for feeding the lead.

Great moments in innovation: hot, fresh pizza … in 3 minutes … from a vending machine.

June 20, 2012

Now you’re talking ….

According to the LA Times, Let’s Pizza is a pizza vending machine that promises to deliver a piping hot pizza pie made from scratch in less than three minutes.

The machine makes pizzas to order, including kneading and rolling out the dough.

There are more than 200 toppings from which to choose.

The pizza is “delivered” in an insulated take-away box.

The machine takes cash and credit cards.

A 10-inch pizza will sell for about $5.95.

“Let’s Pizza is a huge success in Europe, especially in Italy.

You have to see it to believe it
