19 of 100: Crazy Pizza Cuts

What is the maximum number of pieces you can divide a circular pizza into with 4 cuts?

All cuts must be distinct straight lines from one point on the edge of the pizza to another point on the edge of the pizza, and you may not move the pizza slices.

Assume the pizza is flat (so the cuts all must be from above). Try experimenting with 2 cuts and 3 cuts before going on to 4.
