Crosstown Pizza Walking Tour (Little Italy and Greenwich Village)
Visit Manhattan’s famous Little Italy, which the majority of Italian immigrants called home in the early 1900s. See the streets that once overflowed with peddlers and fruit carts and where a peasants’ meal called ‘pizza’ made its debut in America. Visit America’s oldest pizzeria, and admire the sights of these two lovely neighborhoods as you walk.

Greenwich Village Pizza Walking Tour (Greenwich Village and SoHo)
Discover the evolution of pizza from its humble origins in Southern Italy to its cheesy transformation in America’s industrial cities. This Manhattan district was once a thriving Little Italy and is currently in the middle of a resurgence, with new shops being opened by recent Italian immigrants. Visit pizzerias that each specialize in a different type of pizza – types that symbolize its development from a lowly Neapolitan street food to a celebrated American staple.

Lower East Side Pizza Walking Tour (Lower East Side of Manhattan)
If you love pizza, welcome to one of the most pizza-dense neighborhoods, the Lower East Side. Everything from classic pizza-by-the-slice, old-fashioned Neapolitan fare to creative spins on this eponymous dish, this neighborhood has it all. Taste and discover its rich history. Learn about ancient pizza toppings and dough stretching techniques and compare the baking patterns of three different pizza ovens. This tour is for true pizza aficionados.

On your tour, you'll visit three of the following pizzerias:
Lombardi’s, Joe’s Pizza, Louie & Ernie’s, Rizzo’s, Keste, Nunzio’s, Sam’s Restaurant, John’s of Bleecker St, Best Pizza, Patsy’s, Totonno’s, Luzzo’s, Arturo’s, Sac’s Place, NY Pizza Suprema, Pizza Roma, J&V Pizzeria, Ben’s of Soho, Zero Otto Nove, Pizza Box, Rose & Joe’s Italian Bakery, Parisi Bakery, Pugsley’s, Pala, Via Tribunali, Williamsburg Pizza or Two Boots

Scott is a true pizza expert.From the first moment you meet him to the last bite of deep dish pepperoni pizza Scott is educating and explaining things about pizza that really make the eating experience more than just about food. You come away with an appreciation for all types of pizza cooked from a variety of oven types. Thank you Scott for the immersion experience.

The tour with Scott was absolutely delightful! His enthusiasm was contagious and he made everyone have the best time ever! His knowledge of pizza, how it is cooked, various ovens...everything made our tour both informative and fun! He made us all feel like life-time friends as he passed on his passion for pizza to all of us. We got to tour the kitchens and see different kinds of ovens. We learned about the different kinds of pizza and he really got good conversations going. I would highly recommend this tour....and I would do it again if I have the chance to visit New York in the future. The best...a really nice guy!

Absolutely outstanding. We got The Boss Scott for this tour and what he does not know about New York Pizza is not worth knowing. The three pizzerias we went to were Lombardi's, Prince St and Famous Joes, all different but all delicious. With plenty of detail and a detour to the oven repairers / manufacturers on the way, this tour is a must-do if you have any interest in New York Pizza. Bravo, Scott !

This was a great food tour! Alexis, our guide, was very knowledgeable, entertaining, and so passionate about the details of preparing and eating pizza that I won't likely ever think of pizza in the same way. I Highly recommend this tour, and Alexis to guide you through the delicious world and history of NYC pizza!
