FULL SCORING

I did formal scoring for most of the pizzas listed above including a number score and a written explanation. I’ve made the spreadsheet available to view for anyone who’s interested, beware, it’s still a work in progress. You can check it out here.

I’m also working on a spreadsheet I like to call “The Holy Grail” that includes every single pizza recommendation I’ve been given, their website, their location, their phone number, and if someone recommended someone specific. It’s not ready for viewing but if anyone’s interested in sneaking a peek let me know at pizzalovestories@gmail.com and I’ll see what I can do.

HOW DO YOU FEEL AFTER EATING PIZZA FOR 30 DAYS?

My affection for pizza hasn’t waned in the slightest. It’s May 9th and I’ve still been eating plenty of pizza. My stomach, on the other hand, wasn’t the biggest fan of the challenge. There was a lot of bloating and for the last 10 days I didn’t have much of an appetite because I felt so full, BUT, my stomach is cool with pizza…. just not for 30 days straight.

I wish I had been able to film more, but I underestimated how much of an undertaking this was and spread myself so thin I got burnt out on documenting the experience. I did, however, learn a TON about filming and look forward to taking on less intensive pizza projects as they come in.

WHAT’S NEXT?

I am filming the pizza making process at Craft Pizza Chicago soon and I’m working on some other collaborations with local pizzerias and frozen pizza brands.

I’m also considering… 365 days of pizza!

I wouldn’t eat pizza for every meal, but I would eat some sort of pizza each day. I’m considering starting in July, August, or September to give my stomach enough time to recover from April’s Super Slice Me a.k.a. 30 Days of Pizza. Am I crazy? I hope it’s clear by now that I’m eccentric if nothing else.
