This THRILLIST series follows Scott and pizzaiolo Mark Iacono (Lucali) on their quest to figure out if strange toppings and constructions still qualify as “pizza.” Also available on YouTube and Amazon.
The New York Times called Scott’s book about pizza box art and history “delightful and informative” and WIRED Magazine says it’s “an intensely researched love song to [pizza boxes].” It was published in November 2013 by Melville House and remains the world’s only book about pizza boxes.
We host NYC’s biggest pizza party every October! Fifty of NYC’s top pizzerias come together under one roof for a night of $1 slices, the proceeds of which benefit New Yorkers in need. Since 2009, we’ve raised over $70,000 for local hunger relief organizations.
