In Which the Unlimited Range of Pizza as Any Kind of Device is Recognized

This miniature for the month of January, painted c. 1415 by the Limbourg brothers for the Duc du Berry, is part of the Louvre Exhibit here at UC Davis
I am bewildered by this sentence by Janet Maslin in today's paper:

An amazing number of episodes involve pizza, despite the limited range of pizza as a literary device.



What could she have been thinking?

Hey Eve - it was lovely to have lunch with you last week. I hope you have a great time on the rest of your trip, and enjoy indulging in all of that Californian produce! Thank you so much for coming to meet us.

Huh? Have no idea about what Janet Maslin was thinking but I do love the painting.

Sam,
It was great to meet you and I am hoping your trip to New York will be wonderful.
Paz,
Thanks, I was so happy to find this pizza art--even if they had no tomatoes in 1415.

Does this mean my epic, lifelone work, "Ode to Pizza" will someday find an audience?
