Marc Malnati, owner of 30 Lou Malnati's Pizzerias across the Chicago area, said he'd never heard of Pi and had to assume Obama's choice came from lack of experience.Others are confident Obama's professed love of Pi is only a fling:
"I like his economic policy--I think he's going to get us out of trouble. I like his foreign policy--he's making friends around the world. His pizza policy is going to have to change," Malnati said.
"If he wants to explore other types of pizza, while not as good as ours I'm sure, I'm not hurt," said April McRaven, general manager for Pizzeria Uno downtown.Obama's reported favorite pizza joint when he lived in Chicago, by the way, was neither Malnati's nor Uno's, but Pizza Capri.
