Scott's Pizza Tour Pizza News
I did an interview with WRRV’s Deuce about my new book about pizza boxes!
This is a nice video about my buddy Scott’s pizza box collection. I got to count all 595 of these boxes for Guinness. Some of them twice because I have the attention span of a flea.
Meet the guy with the Guinness-certified world’s largest collection of pizza boxes
Yeah, so I have the World’s Largest Collection of Pizza Boxes.
I’m hitting the road this month to bring the pizza box love to a few cities around the US. Each event will feature a talk about pizza and pizza boxes followed by some pizza tasting! I’ll also be eating a bunch of pizza in each city before and after the events to keep in touch by tweeting @scottspizzatour and we’ll meet up!
