Geo Pizza! 2014

By dkeller on April 20, 2014

Close to forty geology students, faculty and staff and their families attended the 2014 Geo Pizza! – a dinner where we provide blank doughs, red sauce, pesto, cheeses and assorted other toppings and challenge the students to create geology-themed pizzas. Students are also highly encouraged to bring geo-themed desserts.

Twenty-one 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.
