How do you cut your homemade pizza so everyone gets an even share? Do you do the classic slices, or maybe even squares? Well apparently, according to science, there is a better way to cut your pizza.

Be warned: This may upset you.

The image you're seeing above is the best way to cut your pizza according to science. Mathematicians Joel Haddley and Stephen Worsley at the University of Liverpool in England believe that these curved slices – also known as monohedral disc tiling – will make your pizza night fair for everyone.

The problem with this, as Mashable pointed out, is that not all slices of pizza are truly equal in this method. Some of the slices in the above diagram are mostly crust, while others have no crust at all. This discrepancy gets even worse if you have more friends over and need more pizza slices.

I'm so sorry to be the one to have to show you this. Please keep cutting your pizza into normal slices or squares and live a happy life.
