    David Schuler has gone to great lengths -- literally -- to get pizza from Town Spa Pizza in Stoughton: 1,400 miles to be exact.

    The Mississippi resident drove for 24 hours up to Stoughton to stock up on the pies last week, picking up 150 of them.

    A Stoughton native until age 13, Schuler grew up with Town Spa Pizza – then his family moved to Jackson, Miss.

    “The only pizza we ate growing up was Town Spa Pizza,” he said. “I just assumed pizza was like that everywhere. We got to Mississippi and pizza here was just horrible.”

    Schuler and his siblings began to get competitive – every time someone went back to the Boston area to visit family, they would see how many pizzas they could get back to Mississippi.

    His sister started with five. His brother brought back 10. His sister went again and brought back 15. Then Schuler decided to give it a try. He bought a suitcase that he filled with pizzas, and that cost him a baggage fee of $87 to fly home from Logan Airport.

    Schuler decided there must be a more efficient way to get the pizzas back to Mississippi. After a few fits and starts, he figured it out

    “If you buy them frozen, you can’t get them back quick enough,” he said. “The crust gets soggy and there’s no way to get it out.”
