Konopizza: the cone-shaped pizza

If anyone is going to improve on the pizza it should be the Italians, right? Well, that's just what one Italian franchise is trying to do with Konopizza, "the original cone-shaped pizza." As they explain on their website:
"For the first time it offers the opportunity to taste a very good pizza while walking around instead of while seated."
The Konopizza comes in a variety of ingredient combinations, including vegetarian and dessert styles. The one pictured is the Kapriccio, made with mushrooms, spicy salami, ham, green and black olives, capers, and oregano.

Although Konopizza has yet to cross the Atlantic they have European locations from Moscow to Madrid and even one in Kuwait City.

These cone-shaped pizzas looked a little strange to me at first, but in the process of reading (and now writing) about them, I'm starting to think they could be pretty handy. In college I adopted the 'fold-over' pizza eating technique to cut down on the messiness and this franchise seems to have simply formalized that approach.

Cup O' Pizza was a joke running through the Steve Martin movie, The Jerk. Looks like that joke is becoming a reality.

In reference to the article "Hold the ice cream" by Jeremy Caplan in July 18, 2005 I'd like to share some information about spreading a cone pizza idea around the globe. Does it mean that pizza in a cone becomes as popular as a hamburger?..

Here is the examples:
