Q: How big is this calendar?
A: Hot Pizza Calendar is a hanging wall calendar that comes in two sizes, 8x11 and 12x12! The perfect sizes!
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!
Fall into October's sun-dappled pepperoni landscape, from The Glenn Store in Michigan!
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!
March's nigh-impressionist pie, fresh from Coney Island!
Q: How much is shipping?
A: Shipping is a flat $5 to US addresses. The one exception is that if you're shipping to Columbus, OH, shipping is free!
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 of the very first calendar!
Q: Which is better, Neapolitan or Sicilian-style?
A: Which is better, breathing in or breathing out?
