"Pizza Wars" is the seventy-first comic issue, released 28 May, 2014 in the US.

The Story

A tale that brings Fry back to basics as a pizza delivery guy. In this case, however, the Planet Express crew is making a special delivery from a planet that oozes sauce to a Brooklyn pizzeria. But hold on to your cannoli, the mob wants a piece of the action and (BADA-BING!), the Planet Express crew discovers there's a little special ingredient in their shipment that they never expected!

Quotes

    Sofia Marinara: Hello again, Fry. Have you missed me?
    Fry: I miss you like Canadians miss living in igloos.

    Fry: Oooh, I don't feel so hot...
    Bender: Ha! That's what you get for trying to eat the inside of a spaceship!

    Tony Marinara: Junior! Show some respect to the lady! [Tony whacks Tony Jr. on the head.]
    Tony Marinara Jr.: Would you watch the hair? I work on it a long time, and you hit it. He hits my hair.

    Hermes: It's true! Our help will only get them in more trouble. My goodness, Professor! A moment of clarity in the usual sea of lunacy!
    Farnsworth: Thank you...Now if we can find my tennis shoes, I should be able to catch the 8:15 bus to a bowl of hockey pucks and see my grandmother's shag rug.
    Hermes: ...And we're back! I'll call Hyper-Chicken and see what he can do.

    Bender: Hey! Giadabot is sending me a message using an ancient form of communication known as morse code. She says she loves me and needs my help!
    Fry: I'm pretty sure Sofia is sending me a message, too...with her cleavage.
