Forget everything you thought you knew about pizza. This in-person tour deconstructs the history of NYC’s favorite food by visiting 3 iconic pizzerias and analyzing the archival photos and documents that tell their story. You’ll get a full slice at each stop plus tours of the kitchens and historic ovens that make NYC the world’s #1 pizza city. Learn the science, history, and culture of the food you’ve been taking for granted your entire life.

This is an in-person event, limited to 16 people. Cost $10. No refunds for cancellations. The tour will meet at 53 Spring Street in Manhattan (between Lafayette and Mulberry Streets) at 12:00PM. Please try to arrive 10-15 minutes early so that the tour can begin as close to 12:00PM as possible. We will end the tour in Greenwich Village, likely near the West Village. Please contact us at programming@nycarchivists.org if you have any questions.

ABOUT: Scott’s Pizza Tours has been conducting tours of significant pizzerias in New York City since 2008. It all started when founder Scott Wiener turned his passion for pizza into a lifestyle career. What began as a means of educating fellow pizza lovers about the history, science, and culture of his favorite food has become an obsession that takes Scott across all aspects of the pizza industry. He’s a columnist for Pizza Today Magazine; an instructor at Pizza University in Washington, D.C.; a culinary judge at Pizza Expo in Las Vegas and Pizza Village in Naples, Italy; founder of the nonprofit Slice Out Hunger; and holder of the Guinness World Records title for “Largest Collection of (clean) Pizza Boxes.”
