This year's orientation week social event for the chemistry graduate students was a pizza bake-off contest. Each participant started with a dough ball and added their own toppings to create a masterpiece. As expected, the faculty sat around discussing the chemistry fermentation and polymerization of gluten
while the graduate students did the work.
At times the creation process looked chaotic, but the results were delicious.
Magda's Gluten free, Mediterranean and Lenny's BBQ Chicken pizzas.
Pizzas were judged on four categories: taste, appearance, originality, and overall awsomeness.
