How to Cut a Pizza into Equal Sized Pieces that Don’t Meet at the Center


Pizzas are normally cut diagonally through the center, but is there a way to cut a pizza into equal sized congruent shapes that don’t all meet in one place? As it turns out, this is a very complicated question, but there is in fact a solution involving the repetition of constant radii. The Maths Doctor helps explain how this is possible, and you can actually make a lot of different fractal patterns using the shape you just cut your pizza into, check it out!
