Pizza Inferno: John Travolta Channels Saturday Night Fever at Brooklyn Event in His Honor

John Travolta returned to Lenny’s Pizza in Bensonhurst, Brooklyn, on Tuesday, over 40 years after his Saturday Night Fever character Tony Manero made the establishment famous.

Dressed in a white suit jacket and black shirt that mimicked the iconic outfit he wore in the 1977 film, the actor was all smiles as he was honored by the borough in what was dubbed “John Travolta Day.”

Wife Kelly Preston was by his side at the event, dressed in a long-sleeve black patterned dress. The two danced to the Bee Gees’ music from the film’s best-selling soundtrack, and sampled slices from Lennys as they were cheered on by thousands of admirers gathered along 86th Street.

Travolta, 64, put Lenny’s Pizza on the map in the opening credits of Saturday Night Fever when he ordered two slices from the eatery, stacked them, and ate them together as one. Lenny’s has since named the “double-decker slice” in Travolta’s honor, local outlet PIX-11 reported.

“It’s not often that we have an opportunity to recognize a great actor who helped turn Brooklyn into a cultural touchstone of the late 1970s,” New York State Senator Marty Golden told the crowd, in video captured by PIX-11. “John Travolta did exactly that.”

For his part, Travolta appeared to be overjoyed and humbled. “We love you. We love Brooklyn,” he told the crowd in the PIX-11 clip. “Thank you very, very much.”

“I’m so humbled, it’s amazing,” he added as police escorted him through the crowds, according to the outlet. “I never expected this big a turnout, it was awesome.”

Preston, 55, shared video and photos of the afternoon on Instagram.

“Having a total fangirl moment!!! 💁🏼‍♀️” she wrote. “Thank you Brooklyn for an insane day 😍.”

Saturday Night Fever followed the dual life of Travolta’s character; a star on the discotheque dance floor but a working-class man with a dead-end job and an unsupportive family back at home.

The film — which was directed by John Badham — popularized disco music across the world. A Sylvester Stallone-directed sequel, Staying Alive, was released in 1983.

Travolta is in the Big Apple to support his new movie, Gotti, in theaters on Friday.

The week also marks the 40th anniversary of another one of Travolta’s treasured films: Grease.

Two Pizza Lovers Got Married And Served Pizza Instead Of Wedding Cake

Bride Jess Melara and groom Tony Sanchez’s wedding day was cheesy in the best way. 

The high school sweethearts, who tied the knot in December in Miami, decided to forgo the traditional wedding cake and served their guests a tiered pizza “cake” instead. 

“Tony and I love pizza and aren’t huge fans of cake, so we surprised our guests with pizza cake,” the bride told Wedding Chicks. “It was saucy and delicious and what pizza dreams are made of.” 

Just look at this cheesy goodness:

Some of the couple’s other wedding details were baseball inspired because the groom plays for the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim. 

There were mini baseball bat key chains as escort cards. 

Drink napkins had baseball phrases like “Game over” and “Fits like a glove” printed on them. 

 And of course, dessert wouldn’t have been complete without boxes of Cracker Jacks. 

Below, even more photos from the couple’s big day:

The Huffington Post reached out to the couple for comment, but had not heard back at the time of publication. This story may be updated.

There’s A New World’s Largest Heart-Shaped Pizza

Back in 2015, The Huffington Post partnered with Los Angeles’ Big Mama’s & Papa’s Pizzeria for a Valentine’s Day goal of creating the largest heart-shaped pizza ever. While the Guinness World Records claims the pizzeria already made the “largest pizza commercially available,” the team ended up gifting pizza lovers a heart-shaped pizza stretching about 47 inches wide.

This year, the restaurant reached out to HuffPost about attempting the feat again, this time with a plan to make the pizza even bigger ― 54 inches across.

As a publication that has a whole page dedicated to the subject of pizza, such an accomplishment couldn’t go unreported. 

The first time around, the Big Mama’s & Papa’s Pizzeria donated their pizza to the ER Team at Providence Saint Joseph Medical Center. Arthur Mkrtchyan of BMPP told HuffPost that for this year’s pizza, the restaurant ended up “delivering to Children’s Hospital nurses, thanking them for their care and love they provide.” Specifically, the pizza went to the Child Life program at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles, which specializes in improving the quality of life for both patients and their families as they deal with the stress of illness and hospitalization.

Ever since the creation of the original pizza a couple years ago, multiple chains such as Papa John’s and Pizza Hut have started offering their own heart-shaped pizzas. Of course, those are nowhere near as big as BMPP’s heart. 

Here’s the pizza with the Children’s Hospital team.

And preparation for the pizza.

BMPP obviously has a massive pizza oven.

Here’s some freshly made heart-shaped pizza.

And the pizza delivery car with a special compartment on the roof.

Here are the blueprints.

The reality star sisters were photographed munching on the cheesy snack on a couch in the corner, seemingly loving life, at the bash thrown by Universal, NBC, Focus Features and E! Entertainment at the Beverly Hilton Hotel. 

The two went as each other’s date to the event, and wore matching topknots, too.
