Geo Pizza! 2013

By dkeller on April 18, 2013

Geo Pizza! is a department dinner where we provide blank doughs, red sauce, pesto, cheeses and assorted other toppings and challenge the students to create geology-themed pizzas. Geo-themed desserts are also highly encouraged.

It is always well attended, and always a fun time.  Twenty-two pizzas were created at this year’s event. Check out the photos of some of the many fine pizzas and the great ideas behind them.   A few pizzas that we missed getting photos of include: Galápagos Pizza, Lagerstatten Pizza, 180˚ Recumbent Fold Pizza, and an Andersonian Mechanics Pizza.
