Pizza In a Cone Rolls Out in Manhattan

Hey old man, time to drop that flat, boring slice of pizza and get a clue: It's 2010 and the tyranny of the slice has at last come to an end in Manhattan, where K! Pizzacone opened in midtown today! Pizzacones, which reportedly taste more like a calzone, start at $4.90 each, but isn't it worth paying a little more not to look like a passé Poindexter with oil drizzling down your shirt? After seeing the revolutionary concept gain popularity in Brazil, Portugal, and Italy, Ingo Pinto, a former banker in Lisbon, decided the time had come for New Yorkers to get coned.

The dough cones are shipped to Pinto daily from a Connecticut bakery, and each Pizzacone is made to order at the counter; you tell them what ingredients to add, and then it's cooked in the oven for five minutes. The result, according to one early guinea pig, is as convenient as it is delicious. "Tastes like a pizza," Victor Nelli, a TV producer, tells the Daily News. "You can totally walk with it, and you don't have the oil dripping all over you." Your move, Di Fara!

For more, pizza afficianado Adam Kuban is en route to K! to give it a test run. The Slice blogger tells us, "A lot of people might ask, 'Does this bastardize the NYC slice?"' But who cares. It's a fun concept I've been dying to try in a commercial setting since first reading about them four or five years ago. The real question is whether the customers will return after the novelty wears off. [Five minutes] seems like a long time for impatient New Yorkers to wait when they could get a fast slice to go in less than two minutes at a traditional slice shop."


Lokks like a way to minimize on expensive toppings and cheese and to maximize on cheap bread and sauce.

This is from 2007... not such a new idea is it?
