Q: What kind of slices and/or pies can I expect to see in this calendar?
A: All sorts of stuff! Whole pies from Italy, slices from NYC, even some weird grid-style slicing from the midwest!
Q: Why does this calendar go from April to March?
A: That's in honor of PizzApril, the most hallowed of pizza celebratory holiday months!
Ah, to recall the PizzApril days of yore - just reminiscing about the Feast of the Four Cheeses, the children marching in the Pepperoni Parade, and even the controversial Calzone Games... Huh? What do you mean you don't know what I'm talking about?
Fall into October's luxurious pepperoni cups, from Prince Street Pizza in NYC!
Q: This seems kinda pricey for a calendar! Shouldn't it cost less?
A: There's a good reason why the price is what is is - I'm just one guy putting this thing together! If you try to find a comparable calendar featuring only the most succulent of adequately-heated pizza action, you won't find anything at all, proving once and for all that this world is entirely a sham!
Most calendars you find in stores and online are mass-produced in huge bulk shipments, and I'm super small-time and can't afford that right now, so the current price takes into account the higher cost to print this thing.
But who knows - if enough people end up craving hot pizza action on their walls, bringing the serenity that only an all-seeing pizza presence can provide, maybe I'll make a deal with a bigger publisher to help bring the price down for everyone!
Q: What are some of the best pizzas you've had?
A: The personal Sicilian pie at Cortese Restaurant
in Binghamton, NY was so good that it ruined my internal pizza criteria and I actually got upset about it!
's Diavola pie in NYC is consistently amazing, and I always try to stop by when I go back to visit family.
And during a trip to Italy that was 95% pizza tourism, the Margherita pie at Osteria Caffè Italiano
in Florence was absolutely astounding - it was so good I put it on the cover on the calendar!
Q: Which is better, Neapolitan or Sicilian-style?
A: Which is better, breathing in or breathing out?
