It is one of the foods that is loved by most people. That is why it is frequently featured in several TV shows and films. A delicious, cheesy, and gooey slice of pizza somehow makes any scene better, doesn’t it? That is why in this article, we are going to honor this iconic food and list down the classic TV, movie, and pop culture scene where pizza is featured. Hold on to your wallets, because you might order yourself some pizza after reading this article.
Pizza is one of the essential elements in the movies Home Alone and Home Alone 2: Lost in New York. For example, in Home Alone 2: Lost in New York, Pizza is what gets the ball rolling for Kevin McCallister because that was the reason why he got sent to the attic.
Kevin just wanted some slice of cheese pizza when his family ordered some for dinner. Kevin’s brother mocked him and said that there’s no more pizza left for him. They got into a fight where Kevin was sent to the attic. After that, he got left behind by his family, who goes on a Christmas vacation. In both films, Kevin treats himself for a pizza.
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles
The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is one of the most famous crime-fighting gang in the world. Maybe because just like us, they are also obsessed with pizza. Whether in the cartoon series or on live-action movies, the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles are always seen eating and indulging on pizzas. We can’t blame them because it is really one of the greatest foods here on earth, right?
Eat, Pray, Live
In a scene in the movie Eat, Pray, Love, Elizabeth Gilbert (portrayed by Julia Roberts) treats herself with some pizza from Naples, Italy, while she is finding herself after a divorce. While eating the pizza, she learns that pizza is always worth it. She even said that she was in a relationship with her pizza. We couldn’t agree more, because pizza is always worth it.
This iconic pizza scene from the hit TV series Breaking Bad shows Walter White, played by Bryan Cranston, arriving home with his son and an extra-large pizza. However, his wife won’t let him inside the house. Frustrated and angry, Walter White flung the whole pizza onto the roof of the house then he angrily leaves. Out of all the exciting, dramatic, and action-packed scenes in this Emmy-winning series, this scene might be one of the show’s most tragic moments. In fact, some viewers couldn’t get over it. They even threw pizzas on the house where Breaking Bad was filmed. The creator of Breaking Bad, as well as the owner of the house, also called off the fans who tried to do it.
Saturday Night Fever
In the opening scene of Saturday Night Fever, John Travolta taught us one of the best ways to eat pizza, and that is by taking two slices, then putting it up on top of each other and devouring it. This scene is no doubt the best pizza strut that was done through Brooklyn.
Dom DeLuise actually played a Pizza character in this comedy movie. He played a villainous gangster named Pizza the Hutt, which is like the Star Wars’ character named Jabba the Hutt. The pizza-like monster is edible, and he suffered an untimely death after he ate himself to death while he was in a limousine.
Not everyone used the Internet back in 1995. In fact, it is almost exotic and unknown for most people back then. That is why movies like The Net showed the world the magic of computers and the Internet by featuring a scene where Sandra Bullock’s character ordered a pizza through her computer without having to pick up the phone. Pretty ironic if you ask us.
Back to the Future II
This scene from Back to the Future II shows some product placement from Pizza Hut. But aside from that, they said in the movie that by the year 2015, people would be buying dehydrated pizzas from Pizza Hut and will use a Black and Decker hydration for cooking them in a snap. Look at where we know, we are still using an oven to heat our frozen pizzas. Nevertheless, this is still one of a classic pizza scene from a movie.
