Everyone loves the smell of piping-hot pizza. But no one loves the smell of a burning pizza box. Turns out, this is a difficult scent to eradicate from the home, and I've tried — even frying tilapia for dinner one evening. But the scent of flaming cardboard somehow persists. Almost all of my friends use the oven, set very low, to keep their pizzas warm in the box while they wait for their guests to arrive, for the evening news to be over or for the salad to be made. No one I know has encountered a problem with this.

A fight broke out inside Baltimore's Horseshoe Casino on the first weekend after its grand opening. A video of the incident shows security guards wearing yellow shirts rushing to break up the fight, which occurred in the line for Pie-Zetta, a pizza restaurant, around 3 a.m. Saturday. "Basically, somebody said something ... to one person and they took it the wrong way," said Kevin Forrest, who witnessed the fight. He said a woman sprayed mace before about 20 security guards stopped the fight and escorted people out of the casino.

Dan Janssen has eaten pizza for almost every meal for a quarter of a century. Pizza for breakfast. Pizza for lunch. Pizza for dinner.   And almost always plain, cheese pizza.  "I do eat a bowl of Raisin Bran once a week or so if I want to be healthy," said Janssen, 38, of Ellicott City. "But usually it's just pizza and coffee. " Janssen said he ate a normal "meat and potatoes" diet when he was growing up, but decided to stop eating meat for ethical reasons when he was a young teenager.

When Edward Bosco and Marianne Kresevich decided to open a pizza restaurant, they didn't choose his hometown of Brooklyn, N.Y. And they didn't pick Chicago, where they were living at the time. Instead, the husband and wife moved to Baltimore and opened Verde in Canton. "We felt differentiating ourselves would be easier in Baltimore," says Bosco. Their rustic-chic restaurant, which opened in 2012, is among a handful of places that are bringing higher-quality pizza to the region. Without a pizza shop on every corner, entrepreneurs in Baltimore see room to carve out their own slice of the action, offering pies that meet a growing pizza sophistication.

Spaghetti and lasagna are all very well, but pizza is plainly the major Italian donation to the American diet. Susan Fillion celebrates both the pizza and its Italian origins in the slender but delightful Pizza in Pienza (David Godine, $17.95). The Pienza of the title is a little town in Tuscany which Ms. Fillion, a Baltimore artist and museum educator, makes the starting point of her illustrated history of this universally popular dish. Life in Pienza (and life in an Italian town can be very good)

Pat's Pizzeria has made its mark on Harford Countywith its sought after slices and its family-friendly atmosphere. Originally the brainchild of three cousins from New Jersey, Tony, John and Joe, the franchise grew to over 50 locations in New Jersey, Delaware, Pennsylvania, and Maryland. And today, every Pat's franchise is owned by a relative of the founding cousins. So in the spirit of keeping it all in the family, nephews of the founding partners, Christos and his brother, Stathis Kotanidis, own the Havre de Grace, Bel Air, and Edgewood locations of Pat's Pizzeria.

New Orleans. Congress and people are in a cutting and banning mood. You hear this all the time now.Today I thought I'd do my part and try to find something to ban and cut.I see in the paper that a boy in Miami shot a man for wanting an extra slice from the pizza the boy bought for some homeless people, including the greedy man. Charity was mixed up in this kid with a heightened sense of justice. I've always been leery of charity for that reason: It's just bait, usually.I also see that in California a pizza thief got 25-years-to-life.

The Mount Vernon BYOB pizza cafe Iggies has been sold.  The business was purchased from longtime owners Lisa Heckman and Peter Wood by Jim Pak, a retired pharmacist. Pak took over the operations at Iggies on July 22, but Wood will remain on board as a consultant for one month.  Heckman opened the Calvert Street cafe in December 2005, shortly after the closing of Soigne, her memorable Fort Avenue collaboration with chef Edward Kim. Heckman was joined at Iggies by Wood in early 2007.

Pizza, life's cheesy cure-all, makes a strong case as the ideal bar food because it's easy to share and rarely fails to please a crowd. The fact it goes hand-in-hand with beer helps, of course.  And while Baltimore is not often associated with pizza, the city has plenty of bars that serve high-quality pies and drinks in comfortable tavern settings. Verde, Birroteca, Johnny Rad's, HomeSlyce, Barfly's and Joe Squared have a verve all their own.  So let us highlight one more cozy pub deftly marrying pizza and a thoughtful bar program: Hersh's Pizza & Drinks in Riverside.

Over the past several years, Baltimore's pizza scene has blossomed, with the opening of new, great pizzerias all across the city. These restaurants tend to have a few things in common: reliance on fresh ingredients, excellent dough and sauces, and friendly atmospheres with a little more polish than the traditional pizza joint. Joe Benny's, which opened in a tiny Little Italy space last spring, has all those things, though it's not a typical pizzeria. It's a focacceria. Or, in layman's terms, a place that uses focaccia bread as pizza dough.

Janet Brown from Scott Depot, W.Va., was in search of a recipe for making pizza rolls. She said that many years ago, Highland Elementary School in St. Albans, W.Va., which is now closed, used to sell the rolls as a fundraiser. She said she used to buy them by the dozen and freeze them so she would always have a good supply on hand. She thought they were the best she had ever tasted and was hoping someone from the area might have the old recipe. While I unfortunately didn't get a response from anyone who had the exact recipe Brown was looking for, I did find an excellent recipe for pizza rolls on a website called Tidy Mom , written by Cheryl Sousan , a freelance food and lifestyle blogger and photographer from St. Louis.

For years former University of Maryland students or anyone who had lived in the College Park area would make the trek back to Ledo's whenever they were in the mood for pizza, because in those days, there was absolutely nothing like Ledo's Pizza. Today, Ledo fans can order pizza in 20 locations around the state.I stopped by the Hunt Valley Ledo to see if it brought back tasty memories and I was not disappointed.

ONE mother shares a strange dream that came early one morning before her son's first day of school: As she walked the hallways, she realized every billboard was brightly decorated by a corporate sponsor.The dream was forgotten until a PTA meeting some weeks later, when her son's kindergarten teacher explained a schoolwide reading incentive program. Each month, children who finished 10 books would receive a reward. Great, thought the mother, until she heard more.Each child's prize: a coupon from a pizza franchise for a child-size pie. She noticed the bright red roof of the restaurant on the coupon.

Angelo's pizza shop has closed in Hampden. On Thursday, the longtime operators of the pizza shop were evicted by the building's owners, 36 Keswick LLC. "It's just been a nightmare," said Angelo Pizza, who purchased the pizza business from his mother in 1988. "Things just started getting good in the last six months. " Angelo's had closed once before, back in May 2011, but Pizza was able to reopen in just over a month after getting a loan from a regular customer. This time, Pizza said, it looks like the end of Angelo's.
