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 !

5 star rating: Highly Recommended December 2014

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!
