Each Sunday, Scott’s Pizza Tour will sample the slices at a half dozen of New York’s famed pizza places like Patricia’s in Morris Park in the Bronx; and Totonno’s in Coney Island, Brooklyn. “This is like a dream, this pizza tour. It’s great,” said Chris Brady, 28, a Massachusetts customer service rep who downed 10 slices at five pizzerias during the tour’s maiden voyage.
The trek is the brainchild of Scott Wiener, a New Jersey resident who quit his job as an events coordinator for the City of Hoboken to launch the tour.
Pizza lovers with $55 to spare can tool around in a school bus on the first citywide pizza tour, which will hit premier pizzerias on a rotating basis.
Wiener is hoping to feature up-and-coming spots–like Luzzo’s in the East Village, as well as established favorites like Lombardi’s. At Lombardi’s, billed as the country’s first-ever pizzeria, fans enjoyed the famed coal-oven pies without waiting on the pizzeria’s infamously long lines.
Pizza Lovers – mark your calendars! Register online for the tour, which will leave from Lombardi’s on Sunday’s starting on May 11.
