An April Fools' Day Spin on Pizza
CHICAGO — Slices or squares, deep dish or thin crust weren't options on the menu when these companies—including a convenience-store retailer and several c-store suppliers—jumped into the April Fools game for the day's best unintentional theme.
Their silly posts were all takes on pizza that were borderline believable.

Valparaiso, Ind.-based Family Express convenience stores went wacky with this extra-crust concoction.
In case you can't squint down to read the fine print across the bottom of the package, let us help you out. It reads: "Not valid ever. Please don't ask us to do this. The weirdos in marketing thought this would be funny for an April Fools' Day joke. We immediately regret everything about the idea of extra crust."
Hunt Brothers Pizza
Conversely, Hunt Brothers Pizza, Nashville, Tenn., flipped the script and went with standard crust but an enormous pepperoni slice ... for a limited time only, of course!
Papa John's Pizza, Louisville, Ky., went full-metal mashup in the United Kingdom with a can of Heinz Beanz. "It's time to wake up and smell the bacon, baby!" Papa John's proclaimed on Twiter. "We thought we'd make mush-room on our menu for the All Day Breakfast Pizza this Easter Weekend!
"Vegan option also available. Who's going for it?"
Finally, St. Louis-based Bud Light appears on this mirthful menu with a beverage to wash all this foolishness down.
Take your pick of a Bud Light seltzer in four pizza-inspired flavors: pepperoni, extra cheese, anchovy and veggie.
