In southeast Michigan, there is a restaurant called Cloverleaf Pizza. Growing up, I'd ride my bike with a friend to the 'Leaf and split an eight-slice cheese and pepperoni pizza. In fact, I liked the pizza so much that I eventually got a job there as a bus boy – in part because employees got 50 percent off their dinner order. But as much as I love Cloverleaf, the 25 mile trek from my current residence limits me to about three trips a year.

Charles Schuler is apparently a much bigger fan of his favorite pizza, as Good Morning America reports that the Mississippi resident drove 1,400 miles in his Ford Escape to Town Spa Pizza in Stoughton, Massachusetts so he can eat his favorite pie. More precisely, Schuler picked up 150 pies for the not-so-low price of $1,200.

The trick to getting all those pizzas to arrive in Mississippi without being a soggy mess is to vacuum seal them after they are partially cooked. And Schuler didn't have to make any stops for food on the way home either, since he also brought a few fully cooked pies to munch on while on the road. Hit the jump to watch a report from GMA.

      if you aren't willing to drive a 25 mile trek more than 3 times a year then why are you writing for AUTOblog? I used to drive 60-80 miles a day and loved every second of it.

      Has this guy never heard of UPS or FedEx? If you're gonna vacuum pack them anyway why would you personally have to drive 3000 miles to grab them? Dry ice, styrofoam, and UPS.

      I like pizza, but my favorite thing about it is the convenience of having it delivered. However, I have driven 40 miles for a French dip, 20 miles for ramen, 80 miles for a burrito, 50 miles for a hot dog and 60 miles to get a growler from my favorite brewery.

      I wouldn't drive that far for pizza. However, I would travel thousands of miles to Ethiopia to gather together a bunch of starving kids, and show them this video on my iPad. And then I'd drop the iPad and break it with my heel, and lick their sweet salty tears.

        Possibly the funniest comment I have ever read.

        Quite possibly the comment of the year.

      The best pizza I've ever had was.... in Italy. Every time I go visit my relatives in Europe, I make sure that I try out some pizza. The fact remains that authentic Italian pizza is worlds better than American pizza. Given the lack of nutritional value and liberal use of high fat ingredients in American pizza would make you think the opposite. But there's no comparison between European pizza and American pizza. There's nothing like the crunch of the thin Italian crust and the simple deliciousness of the tomato sauce in authentic pizza.

        Depends on what you're looking for. I love Italian pizza, but the yeasty, tender, doughy crust of a well cooked American pizza, using a nice, milky mozzarella, with a few of your favorite choice ingredients is just as delicious. Different kinds of tastes... If you have a Trader Joe's nearby, they have partially-baked pizzas from Italy that may fill your need for crunchy, wood oven baked pizza. Try the quattro formaggi...

      Hasnt he heard of delivery? Im pretty sure some pizza places give it you free if it takes more than 30 minutes or the pizza gets too cold.

      Oh mio Dio.. That IS NOT PIZZA. that is something like a dog poo. To eat real pizza... only in Italy. I visited the entire Italy to eat the differents kind of pizza, but, please, don' t call that piece of something like bread and "i don't know" pizza. Cooked in a pot? Not in a wood stove? Call me when you are in Italy :D

      The farthest we have ever driven to get pizza was about 65 miles roundtrip. There was a great pizzeria in my dad's hometown of Livingston, NJ, which shut down in 1997. We still talk about how good their pizza was. Besides that place, there's no need to go far to get pizza in NYC.

      I used to go to Cloverleaf pizza as a kid when visiting family in Michigan. Haven't been there for a few years. Good pizza! Cool to see it posted here.

      The best pizza I've ever had in my life from coast to coast is 15mins from my house. Lucky me. :)

      Excellent idea, buy them half cooked. Brillant!
