ers eat a slice of the Buffalo Wing Pizza at Haw-
thorne’s New York Pizza & Bar in Charlotte, North
Carolina. The spicy pie, made with chicken and a
medium-heat buffalo sauce, has been dubbed “The
Inducer” because some pregnant women claim they
went into labor shortly after eating it. Word of the pie’s alleged powers spread after the CharlotteFive website
reported three women had delivered their babies within just a few hours of eating the pizza. Since
then, moms-to-be have flocked to the pizzeria, and many have reported success, according
to Hawthorne’s Facebook page. One Charlotte doctor even sent a patient to the pizzeria
with a prescription that read, “Please dispense 1 whole pizza—spicy buffalo to induce labor,”
and Good Morning America interviewed owners Michael Adams and John Adams and new
mom Ashley Fleming with her baby boy, Riker.

A Raw Deal for Vegetarians
U.K. pizza chain Franco Manca, with 35-plus stores in England,
cooked up a raw deal for National Vegetarian Week in May. Customers were invited to trade in their raw vegetables for free vegetarian pizzas, with the produce donated to People’s Fridge Brixton,
a local cold-storage food bank. The unique promo scored priceless
coverage in publications and websites like Mirror Online and
Business Insider. It also shone the spotlight on Franco Manca’s newest
all-veggie pie, arrayed with courgettes, basil, mozzarella, buffalo
ricotta and wild caper berries.
The U.K. pizza chain Franco Manca, which earned national publicity for its veggies-for-pizza
promo earlier this summer, recently opened a new location in Bournemouth.
