A restaurant in Lawndale, popular as the high school hangout. Daria and Jane hang out there in almost every episode.
The canon depiction shows a man's head with a crown in the window, his arm holding a pizza aloft. The name isn't given on the window but on Jane Lane's old MTV web page the window image is called the "Pizza King logo." The restaurant might have changed its name later on; in the episode "Aunt Nauseum," to hide from Helen that she's on the phone with Jake, Daria says, "A large pizza with extra cheese. Got it. Thanks for calling Pizza Prince." On the current MTV Daria webpage for "Virtual Lawndale," however, is a yellow building with a green roof called The Pizza Place ("You've tried the rest, now try some of this slop"), located between the Morgendorffers' home and Lawndale High.
In Jane's "Gourmet Guide to Pizza Pleasures" webpage, the Pizza King is given her highest rating of 9.7 for "Perfect cheese-to-crust-to-sauce ratio. Just enough unidentifiable burnt things."
