Summary:

The story opens with Josh and Jon arriving at Libido's International Pizza to find that they'll be shut down for remodeling for the next three months. They try to make do with frozen pizzas, but no one likes it. With their favorite teen hangout temporarily closed, the Warriors find themselves with no place else to go on the weekends and nowhere to get a decent slice...until Marcie casually suggests that, using an old secret family recipe, they could make a better pizza than those store-bought ones. They quickly glom on to this idea, and soon Mystic Pizza is born. Its motto is, "No topping too out there!"

The business quickly takes off, striking a chord with pizza lovers all over the tri-county area and making money hand over fist. Jon then reveals he's been working on a plan guaranteed to double their business within days....

Notes

The title comes from the 1988 teen film about two sisters who work as waitresses in a small Midwestern pizza parlor. The movie starred Annabeth Gish, Julia Roberts, and Conchata Ferrell, and features the debut of a young Matt Damon. The name for the new business is picked by Chance. He names it in honor of Molina (still recovering from the events of "Strange Bedfellows"), which the others enthusiastically accept.

page 10. The "Pizza Guy" musical number is set to the tune of "The Candy Man Can" from Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory", although the spoken-word lead-in to the song is more at "Ya Got Trouble" from The Music Man--in particular, Josh's rhyming and the gang's rhythmic, repetitive chanting.

page 18. One of the pizza orders comes from a surfer-type voice speaking out of a manhole cover, a nod to Michelangelo from the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. In many incarnations, particularly the 1988 cartoon, these teen terrapins are noted for having an extreme love of pizza.
