UK mathematician has discovered a formula for creating a perfect pizza.
Eugenia Cheng, from the University of Sheffield, has figured out a formula based on a 'mathematical relationship' between the size of a pizza and its ratio of topping to base in a median bite.
In her research paper abstract, Cheng states that it is not the overall thickness of the pizza that is affected by its size, but also the topping-to-base ratio, Cnet reports.
It is assumed that the average bite from an 11-inch pizza will have 10 percent more toppings than the average bite from a 14-inch pizza.
Cheng explained that smaller pies tend to have thicker crusts, wider rims, and outer edges with a scarcity of toppings, while rolling dough for larger pizzas reduces the crust overload and aids in more even distribution of toppings.
