Kid invents Pizza Decrustifier, is probably richer than you already

For those of you who prefer your Tombstone pizza without the oven-charred crust, there's finally a solution. A 10-year-old inventor named Braeden went on Jimmy Fallon last night to demonstrate his revolutionary new product called the Pizza Decrustifier. To use it, simply line your pie up on the device's graphed base and then clamp down the slicer. (Note: You really have to put some weight into it. Fallon recommends having a child nearby to sit on it.) When you lift the thing back up, your crust should pop right off, and your pie will be cut into convenient slices.

Braeden and the two other young Da Vincis who appeared on "Fallonventions" each received a check for $5,000 from GE to further their educations, which will hopefully lead to other innovations like, say, a queso cannon.
