Obama Gets Pizza Named in His Honor
The latest food-related news from the campaign trail
While addressing students at the University of Colorado in Boulder, Colo., this weekend, President Obama announced that a local pizzeria called The Sink named a pizza in his honor after he visited the restaurant. The POTUS pie (standing for President of the United States) is topped with pepperoni, sausage, green peppers, black olives, and onions. Obama joked that he added the vegetable toppings to keep the first lady happy.
The president’s original visit to The Sink occurred during his last tour of the state, in April, when an overly excited supporter reportedly spilled frozen yogurt on Obama's pants while greeting him. Obama also reportedly signed the ceiling of the restaurant, a local tradition.
