The Man Who Lives on Pizza Alone Is Still Very Much Alive

A few months ago, a guy named Dan Janssen made international headlines after we interviewed him about his 25-year diet of only pizza, every meal. Or at least almost only pizza (with a few bowls of cereal every now and then).

We spent a few days with Dan in his hometown of Ellicott City, Maryland, and Baltimore to explore where the self-proclaimed “King of Pizza” finds the perfect slice. After watching him consume pizza after pizza, we couldn’t help but wonder, How is this dude not dead yet? 

Doctors have even given him a (fairly) clean bill of health, but according to Dan, “We’re all gonna die. I’m gonna die with pizza in my stomach.”
