An interesting experiment was conducted on Thursday night. Pizzas from two different local (Longfellow & Seward) pizza shops were ordered to a party I attended: Parkway Pizza and Pizza Luce from the Seward (Franklin Ave) location.
Which pizza was consumed first? Here are the results:
Which is which? Parkway was on the left. Luce on the right.
One major difference was the slicing style. We took a vote among the dozen or so people attending the party and found that all but one preferred square-cut pizza. Can the way a pizza is cut have a significant influence over consumer’s taste? Perhaps.
It’s worth noting that the above photo was taken after someone grabbed two slices from the right side Pizza Luce pizzas, which means that the competition was more lopsided than it appears in the photo.
