You won't find a much more environmentally friendly way to get pizza than this.
Vinnie's Pizzeria in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, tweeted a photo of a pizza box made out of a pie on Wednesday. The photo shows a rectangular-crust pizza with a smaller, traditional New York-style pepperoni pie inside.
"Introducing The PIZZA BOX PIZZA! A pizza box made entirely out of pizza! No waste, 100% pizza and 100% delicious," Vinnie's wrote on Twitter.
Sean Berthiaume, one of the co-owners of the pizzeria, said he decided to make the pizza box because things were a little slow on Wednesday and he likes to experiment. He said the number of pizza boxes he sees in trash cans around Brooklyn served as inspiration.
Vice President Joe Biden made an unannounced visit to Iraq on Thursday to implore the country's leaders to resolve a crippling political crisis that has hindered efforts to defeat the Islamic State group.
Biden landed in Baghdad mid-afternoon after a secret, overnight flight from Washington on a military plane. Stepping onto the tarmac in blistering heat, he greeted the U.S. ambassador and Lt. Gen. Sean McFarland, the U.S. commander heading the fight against IS, as swirling dust masked the skyline behind them.
His first stop was a meeting with Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi at the late Iraqi leader Saddam Hussein's grandiose Republican Palace, which served as U.S. headquarters in Baghdad after the U.S.-led 2003 invasion.
A suspect who was shot outside the Fox45 TV station in Baltimore Thursday afternoon is wounded and lying outside the building as bomb squads work to determine whether the man still poses a threat, police said.
The man, who appears to be in his 20s, entered the building about 1 p.m. and allegedly made a threat to blow up the building, according to the Baltimore Police Department.
Authorities said they want to get the man medical care, but he is not cooperating with authorities.
Two Chicago twins have received more than $1 million in scholarship offers from dozens of schools across the country — and the offers continue to pour in, NBC News reported.
High school seniors Shaprice and Deprice Hunt, 19, got into 62 colleges combined. Among the schools one or both twins got into: Howard University, Western Kentucky University, Northern Illinois University and the University of Alabama.
Deprice is going to Morehouse College in Atlanta, an all-male, historically black institution. He chose the school because it’s where he would “feel comfortable,” even though the financial aid package was lacking. Shaprice has narrowed down her choices, and will decide in the next few days.
The two, who are fraternal twins, want their story to help other students.
"I'm hoping to inspire younger generations to never give up and keep working and stay focused," Shaprice said.

A grand jury has indicted a business owner on a second-degree murder charge in the shooting death of retired New Orleans Saints' defensive end Will Smith.
The indictment was read Thursday. Cardell Hayes also faces charges of attempted second-degree murder because police say he shot and wounded Smith's wife April 9 after they got into a traffic dispute.
Police said Hayes' Hummer hit Smith's Mercedes SUV from behind and they got into an argument.
A lawyer for Hayes has said repeatedly that his client was not the aggressor and that the truth will come out during the investigation. Hayes has been jailed since the shooting.

The Maryland man accused of lying about a 27-year career with the CIA is set to plead guilty to federal criminal charges. Wayne Simmons, who appeared on Fox News, was charged last year in federal court in Alexandria with fraud and making false statements to the government. An indictment states Simmons lied about having a nearly three decade-long career with the CIA as an "Outside Paramilitary Special Operations'' officer. Prosecutors have said Simmons had no connection whatsoever to the CIA.

Two brothers have been arrested on suspicion of murder in connection with the deaths of their parents, whose bodies were found in their San Jose home over the weekend near what sources said was a scrawled message apologizing for a "clumsy" killing.
Police on Thursday announced the arrests of Hasib Bin Golamrabbi, 22, and his 17-year-old brother, who attends Evergreen High School.
"Needless to say," Evergreen Islamic Center spokesman Faisal Yazadi said. "This is one of those tragedies nobody ever wants to be in. All we can do is pray."
The father-in-law of slain North Texas fitness instructor Missy Bevers dropped off an apparently blood-stained shirt at a dry-cleaning business four days after the killing, according to a search warrant filed Wednesday.
Bevers, 45, died April 18 after she was attacked inside the Creekside Church of Christ in Midlothian. The mother of three had arrived at the church around 4 a.m. to prepare for her early-morning Camp Gladiator fitness class.
On April 22, Randy Bevers, 64, brought a white XXL women's long-sleeved shirt to the Dry Clean Super Center of Midlothian, according to the search warrant.
He allegedly told an employee the clothing had animal blood on it. Missy Bevers' sister-in-law later told NBC 5 the blood was from a dog fight that broke out in her kitchen.
A direct airstrike destroyed a hospital specializing in pediatrics in Syria, killing at least 14 doctors and patients, Doctors Without Borders, which supports the facility said Thursday, NBC News reported.
According to the medical charity, also known as Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF), at least two of the eight doctors working at the Al Quds hospital in a rebel-held area of Aleppo were killed in the attack Wednesday night.
"This devastating attack has destroyed a vital hospital in Aleppo," Muskilda Zancada, MSF head of mission for Syria, said in a statement. "Where is the outrage among those with the power and obligation to stop this carnage?"
Syria's Civil Defense rescue service in Aleppo told NBC News 30 people had been killed in the attack, including a nurse and her whole family. It was not clear who launched the strike.
Thursday marks 20 years since Australia experienced its worst massacre when a 28-year-old man went on a shooting spree in Tasmania, killing 35 people and wounding another 28.
The gunman, Martin Bryant, now 48 and imprisoned for life, was later assessed to have the IQ of an 11-year-old. He told investigators that he'd paid cash for firearms at a local gun dealer.
Australia had experienced mass shootings before, but the Port Arthur massacre prompted the government to introduce legislation that outlawed automatic and semi-automatic rifles, as well as pump-action shotguns. A nationwide gun buyback program saw more than 640,000 weapons turned in to authorities.
In Australia, a single massacre changed everything. But in the United States, the question is often asked in the somber aftermath of a shooting massacre: how many deaths will it take before America changes its gun laws?

The man at the center of sexual abuse allegations against Dennis Hastert can continue suing the former House Speaker for breach of contract under a "fictitious name," a judge ruled Thursday.
Identified in court documents as "James Doe," the man, previously known only as "Individual A," is suing Hastert over claims he reneged on a deal to pay the young man millions of dollars in order to conceal sexual abuse.
The day after Hastert was sentenced to 15 months in prison for breaking federal banking laws in the case, Judge Robert Pilmer ruled the accuser can continue with the suit as "James Doe," for now.
The lawsuit alleges James Doe was sexually abused by Hastert in a motel room when he was 14 years old.

Prescription painkillers were found in Prince's possession when he died and in his Minneapolis home, federal law enforcement officials told NBC News. The officials have yet to say what role, if any, those medications may have played in his death.
The officials said Wednesday that the county sheriff investigating Prince's death has asked for help from the Drug Enforcement Administration.
The DEA's role, officials say, will be to determine such things as where the medications came from, and what prescriptions Prince had obtained.
Some of Prince's friends have said the musician took the painkiller Percocet to relieve pain in his hips — the result of years of jumping during performances. An autopsy was performed last week, but it may take weeks before the cause of his death would be disclosed.

India reportedly introduced "laser walls" to "plug the porous riverine and treacherous terrain" at its border with archenemy Pakistan, NBC News reported.
One of the world's most dangerous nuclear flashpoints, the India-Pakistan border is also among the most militarized. Both New Delhi and Islamabad deploy more than half of their 1 million and 600,000-strong armies, respectively, on the border.
According to the state-run Press Trust of India, around 45 laser walls will be installed in Punjab state.
Lasers beamed over rivers and hills will set off an alarm and alert the Indian Border Security Force if someone attempts to pass by, it added.
