A Mississippi man who grew up in Massachusetts goes to great lengths for a good pizza - about 1,400 miles to be exact.

David Schuler returned to Jackson, Mississippi, last weekend with 150 pizzas from the Town Spa in his home town of Stoughton, just outside Boston.

It is a tradition he started years ago when he couldn't find a good slice in Mississippi.

The 150 frozen, vacuum-sealed pizzas he returned with was a record for him. They cost 1,200 US dollars (£740).

He completed the 16-state journey in 24 hours, munching on Town Spa pizzas he kept on the passenger seat.

Restaurant manager Kerry Hughes told The Enterprise of Brockton he ships pizzas as far as California and Florida, but added that Mr Schuler is his best out-of-state customer.
