Talk about passing gas: Vast stores of helium are escaping from the steam vents and hot springs of Yellowstone National Park after being trapped within Earth's crust for up to 2 billion years, according to new research. In a study published Wednesday in the journal Nature, researchers with the U.S. Geological Survey determined that the famed national park was releasing hundreds -- if not thousands -- of times more helium than anticipated. In fact, researchers say, the escaping helium -- about 60 tons per year --  is enough to fill one Goodyear blimp every week.

  It was love at first bite when Food section assistant editor Rene Lynch met Momofuku Bakery & Milk Bar's Crack Pie. A woman obsessed, she tracked down the recipe from pastry chef Christina Tosi. Its filling is ooey-gooey and buttery. The crust is inspired by an oat cookie. "I'll wager that it's not like any pie you've ever had before because that salty-sweet-crunchy-oaty crust is as much a part of the pie as the filling itself," Lynch says. "Eat it with a spoon. While it's still in the pie plate.

Thank you for the survey of quick pizzas (The Pizza Challenge, June 11). But I've got one to challenge your best homemade pizza. It's similar to the Boboli idea, which is a good one, but needs some help. (I've tried a couple of Boboli crusts, but the flavor puts me off, perhaps somewhat like some of your tasters didn't like the Pillsbury crust.) I make focaccia, which is an easy item to do ahead and keep in the freezer. Often I'll bake a stack of focaccia at one time. You can modify the softness or crispness of the crust by increasing or decreasing the baking time.

After seeing the movie "Big Night," I looked for a recipe for timpano but never found one--until yours ("Bake the Drum Slowly" [Timpano di Maccheroni al Ragu], Oct. 17, 1996, by Russ Parsons). After reading the article and seeing what was involved, I thought I'd never try it--but now I have. On Mother's Day, I thought I would surprise my mother since this is truly a gift of love--at least I think so, considering what it took to get it on the table. I began the morning before. Shopping wasn't a problem, and I followed the recipes for each component, each of which I would certainly do again.

Brami's Kosher Pizza in Reseda bakes the impossible. Somehow stuffed inside a thin disc of malawach — a Yemeni flatbread as dense and flaky as a hundred layers of phyllo — is a pizza. Mozzarella oozes with each bite from between the crisp sheets of dough, bringing with it tangy crumbles of feta, diced tomatoes and briny green olives. At its edge, the crust is pinched into an almost pastry-like braid, sealed just well enough to contain that cheesy filling.
