Comerica Park worker charged after spitting on pizza

  Comerica Park worker charged after spitting on pizza Jaylon Kerley, 20, was arrested Sunday after a video showed him spitting on a pizza at a concession stand during the Tigers game Friday.The Wayne County prosecutor's office on Tuesday announced 20-year-old Jaylon Kerley of Detroit has been charged with a felony count of food law violations that is punishable by up to four years in jail and a misdemeanor count of food law violations that is punishable by up to 90 days in jail.

Turns out the secret to a perfect pizza is all about the thermodynamics of the wood-fired brick ovens used to crisp a pizza crust to golden perfection . The wood fire burns in one corner, radiating heat up the curved walls and stone floor of the oven to produce the perfect conditions for an evenly baked pie.

As Live Science reports, a physicist and a food anthropologist in Rome teamed up with a physicist from Northern Illinois University (who also worked in the Italian capital) to figure out how to use an electric oven to bake pizza that’s as good as a wood-fired one.

Their paper, titled “The Physics of Baking Good Pizza,” was published on the pre-print platform arXiv [PDF]. A seasoned pizza-maker in Rome told the researchers that a brick oven was key to crafting a flawless pizza. It should be set at about 626°F (330°C), and the pie should be baked for just two minutes, the pizzaiolo said.

Physicists and food historians teamed up to create the ultimate pizza equation . If you'd like to eat the world's most scientifically perfect pizza , you have two options: One, fly to Rome and order a Margherita pizza fresh from the brick oven; or, two, solve a long thermodynamic equation to simulate

Physicists describe how to make a perfect pizza (and for real, we want in on that study) using thermodynamic principles relevant to So, they created an equation for the perfect pizza for you to try out at home. Traditional brick ovens have a wood fire that burns in one corner, allowing for heat to

That’s all well and good if you happen to have a wood-fired brick oven at home, but the researchers wanted to test whether the same results could be achieved in an electric oven with a steel surface. They approached the question from a thermodynamic point of view, using the principles of heat transfer, thermal radiation, and water evaporation—factoring in the thickness and temperature of the bottom of the pizza, as well as other characteristics—to come up with the perfect method of cooking a classic Margherita pizza. In case you’re curious, the equation they arrived at looks like this:

Essentially, what this means is that similar conditions to a brick oven can be achieved in an electric oven by setting the temperature to 450°F (rounded up from 230°C) and leaving the pizza in there for 170 seconds. However, pizzas with toppings that have a higher water content (especially vegetables) should be left in the oven a little longer in order to take the process of evaporation into account.

The result is a perfectly fine pie, but as the researchers admit, “the dry heat and the smell of wood in traditional firebrick ovens remain the ideal way to bake the perfect pizza.”
