it absorbs the sauce. >> it's all about balance. >> this is the pepperoni square. the one topping i'm letting you have. it's not normal pepperoni. it's a natural tasting pepperoni. it means that the meat is cupped and charred around the outside. some pepperoni lays flat. it's going to be zestier and meatier. good topping. lombardi's opened in 190 5. the first in all of north america. this is a coal-fired pizzeria. with that intense heat, the pizza can bake in about three minutes. this is a knee politan american pizza. there should be no blanket. of cheese. it should be like this. with fresh mozzarella, you can't shred. it's too wet. you have to slice it and put it on. so the spatula, wrist twist.
it separates the slice and instead of lifting up the slice and potentially dropping the front and losing some cheese, you elevate the plate and do the snag and drag. >> cheers. >> cheers. >> for me what makes a pizza bad is a crust that's been ignored. a crust that's only thought of as a vehicle for toppings. while you're eating this what you are tasting, a lot is this beautiful char on the underside of the slice. you see this line. that's a burn mark on the edge. of a brick. the crust is a big deal to me now. >> this is lombardi. this is the original. this is america's first pizzeria in 1905. and they know what they are doing. >> you were saying how much you love carbohydrates. you go at it. help yourself. >> this is fantastic pie. i got it. the adventure doesn't end here. we got part two of this coming

you normally wouldn't put together. a lot of cute animals. a lot of odd pairings. >> when you want it to go viral, you put babies and animals. i am more of a sucker for animals than the babies. >> that makes sense to me. >> totally does, right? can we move along? you tell me. >> this story here. we fought over this one. should women shave their face? beauty experts say it's the reason men age better and there is a trend starting. i kind of get this. it's about exfoliating. when you shave you take off a layer of skin and it allows it to be healthier. i've always heard of the myth. >> if you shave it comes back thicker. >> you grow a beard. the leg hairs do that. they are saying that's not the case. they're saying that's not the case. there's a woman who has had great results. because it also removes skin imperfections and you are taking a layer of skin off. you going to start doing this? >> no way because if the myth is wrong, i have a beard for the rest of my life.
keep shaving like the rest of us. >> wait a minute. >> is it just the face or are you supposed to shave everything? you say exfoliate. >> i wouldn't go close to the brows. that look is not going to work. i would think because i watched men shave. do you borrow your husband's razor. >> no. don't do that. >> you have the five shot ones. i always steal those for my legs too. sorry, max. >> i told you we would learn a lot today about sara. what's the next story? the accents. the language of love. there was a study and a survey about the sexiest accent. you were right on about this. this international survey, global dating survey. who has the sexiest accent out there. >> i kind of disagree. this survey says british. >> you thought it was what? >> i thought it would be french. it used to be french. that ruled the charts. i don't know what happened to the french. i don't know how americans made it on there. we don't have cute accents. it's harsh and -- >> not all that bad. >> you're cute. you make up for it.
