STOUGHTON, Mass. (AP) — A Mississippi man who grew up in Massachusetts goes to great lengths for a good pizza.

About 1,400 miles.

David Schuler returned to Jackson, Miss., last weekend with 150 pies from Town Spa Pizza, a restaurant in his home town of Stoughton (STOWE'-tun), just outside Boston.

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

He returned with 150 frozen, vacuum-sealed pies. That was a record for him. They cost $1,200.

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

Restaurant manager Kerry Hughes tells The Enterprise of Brockton (http://bit.ly/nsJaAO ) he ships pizzas as far as California and Florida, but Schuler is his best out-of-state customer.
