Scott’s love for pizza began in suburban New Jersey, where weekly pizza runs created a subliminal dietary requirement. A simple love of pizza turned into obsession as he realized the history, science, and culture of pizza ran much deeper than previously thought. Weekly expeditions to historic pizzerias stirred up interest among family and friends, leading to an epic birthday party celebration that involved a school bus, a megaphone, and 26 friends. Six months later, Scott launched Scott’s Pizza Tours as a way of channeling his desire to teach the deeper story of pizza. Now, Scott is a full-time pizza enthusiast, sharing his love with inquisitive pizza lovers. Scott teaches pizza history at both New York University and the Library of Congress… and has earned the nickname “Professor Pizza”.
