Pizza Puzzler

To solve this oh-so-delicious logic problem, please, I beg you: PLAY WITH YOUR FOOD!

Add a little pizzazz to dinner tonight with a easy to assemble pizza puzzler. Not only will you enjoy a tasty dinner or snack, you will also get your daily dose of math fun. Here’s what you do:

Assemble a cheese topped pizza from a ready made crust. I like to use my own spaghetti and tomato sauce for the pizza sauce. Sprinkle the pizza with cheese and place seven pieces of pepperoni as shown in this picture. Bake as directed on the package.

Okay, here’s the fun part… Cut the pizza using exactly (no more, no less) three straight lines all the way across the pizza. Here’s the clincher: Once the pizza is cut using the three straight lines, there should be exactly one piece of pepperoni on each slice of pizza.

Helpful hint, you might want to lay a straw or string across the pizza before actually cutting it. (The answer is further down in this post)

Happy eating!
