It can be deep-dish pizza, stuffed pizza, pizza pockets, pizza turnovers, rolled pizza, pizza-on-a-stick, all with combinations of sauce and toppings limited only by one's inventiveness...

Girolamo Riario (1443 – 14 April 1488) was Lord of Imola (from 1473) and Forlì (from 1480). He served as Captain General of the Church under his uncle Pope Sixtus IV. Having taken part in the 1478 Pazzi Conspiracy against the Medici, 10 years later he was assassinated by members of the Forlesian Orsi family.Born in Savona, Riario was the son of Paolo Riario and Bianca della Rovere. He was a nephew of Pope Sixtus IV, who in 1473 granted him the seignory of Imola, as a dowry for his marriage with Caterina Sforza (daughter of Galeazzo Maria Sforza, Duke of Milan). In 1471 he had also been appointed Captain General of the Church..In 1478 he was one of the plotters behind the Pazzi conspiracy, a plot to assassinate 2 prominent members of the Medici family in Florence. In addition to conspiring, he was an intended beneficiary, once Lorenzo and Giuliano de' Medici had been killed..Riario promoted several further plots against the Medici, but they all failed.. In 1488 he was the last of the main Pazzi conspirators left alive, and was himself assassinated in a conspiracy led by two members of the Orsi family from Forlì, supposedly over a financial dispute. On 14 April, Checco and Ludovico Orsi entered the government palace, and one of them attacked Riario with a sword. Despite the presence of the Count's guards, a total of 9 assassins slashed Riario to death, eventually flinging his corpse into a local piazza, where a crowd gathered in support of the assassins.. The assassins then proceeded to loot the palace..Although assassinations were not altogether uncommon in Renaissance Florence, they still had repercussions... month ago he bought the rights to this book, a best seller..The main character is a guy just like you.. I wouldn't even have to act, just be myself..Jay,The people - They are the dust you draw your circles in.. THOSE are the people!.. I mean exactly that! Nothing changes here..EVER!...
