Mathematician comes up with perfect pizza formula

By Denise Greer


pizza math formulaDr. Eugenia Cheng, a mathematician from the University of Sheffield in the U.K., says she’s come up with a formula for a perfectly portioned pizza. She was asked to study pizza ratios by British chain PizzaExpress.

According to the Daily Mail, Cheng calculated that the average bite taken from an 11-inch pizza has 10 percent more toppings than the average bite from a 14-inch pizza. She sought to find a balance of flavor for dough and toppings. In the formula, she used “d” as the constant volume of dough and “t” is the constant volume of toppings to create the ratio of toppings to base in a median bite. For more on this story, CLICK HERE.
