Equal isn't necessarily fair with new scientific way to cut pizza

(FOX News) - If you’re righteous to a fault about getting your fair share of pizza –that is if you have to share a pie -- we have good news for you—sort of.

Mathematicians Joel Haddley and Stephen Worsley at the University of Liverpool in London devised a way to slice and dice a pizza into almost endless identical slices with a method called monohedral disc telling, reports the New Scientist.

The work builds on previous research that showed it was possible to cut a pie in 12 equal slices by cutting six pieces into a curvy star-shape from the center, and then halving each of those pieces, like the photos above. 

The new way starts with the cutting technique above, but this time are instead made up of an odd number of straight sides. Each of those can then be cut up into equal slices, creating almost limitless equal pieces.
