Crazy Pizza Facts
The Outer Edge Is Called the Cornicione
If you want to impress your friends, the next time you’re eating pizza and somebody leaves the “bones” behind, ask them why they didn’t eat the cornicione (say “cor-nee-cho-nay”), which means the cornice or the molding. Don’t call it the crust; that’s the name for the base that the toppings are added to. And yes, this does mean that Pizza Hut’s latest creation should technically be called a hot dog-stuffed cornicione pizza.
