With Scott's Pizza Tours, you'll get a serious education in the history, science, culture, and taste of real New York pizza by visiting some of the places that do it best.


Not only do you get a slice at each stop on the tour, we’ll even get you into the kitchens for an exclusive behind-the-scenes look at all the different ovens, cheese types, tomato preparations, and dough stretching techniques. Keep track of your findings in your very own Pocket Pizza Journal, a handy notebook we designed specifically for pizza analysis!


If it sounds like we’re a little obsessed, it’s because we are. Our founder Scott Wiener started the tour after leading a group of friends on an epic birthday party pizza crawl in 2007. It was too much fun to keep a secret, so he launched the company with the intention of running a weekly tour while looking for a real job. Flash forward and Scott’s Pizza Tours is one of the highest rated activities in the universe. It’s probably because we’re extremely passionate about our city, our pizza, and sharing both with new friends.


Our tours are conducted by an elite team of pizza lovers who found each other through our collective love of the slice. Scott does not lead every tour, but all of our guides are licensed and trained to dish out slices of pizza AND information in the greatest pizza city ever.

Attended: Greenwich Village Pizza Walk


Not only was the pizza great, but I learned much more about the evolution of New York-style pizza than I'd expected to. The choice of three restaurants took the New York pizza story from its Neapolitan roots, through old-school New York style, to the familiar modern pizza-by-the-slice storefront style, with a wealth of information about the types of ovens and ingredients used for the different styles. We also took a brief side trip past Café Wha? where Bob Dylan got his professional start, and the Comedy Cellar, perhaps the world's premier stand-up club.

We really enjoyed the Downtown Brooklyn Pizza Walk. As New Yorkers we were interested to see what pizza would be showcased and while the places we visited were serving delicious pizza, we were slightly disappointed that we did not get what we consider a real NY slice (triangle slice of pizza, sauce, and mozzarella that you have to pat with a napkin to soak up some of the grease). However, we visited 3 excellent places - one coal-fired, one wood-fired, and one serving Sicilian pizza and met new people from California and Washington. All of the pizzas were delicious and the discussions about the dough, sauce, and mozzarella were interesting. Definitely recommend if you are a pizza lover and would enjoy an afternoon strolling downtown Brooklyn and eating some tasty pizzas.

Dave was a phenomenal host. First and foremost, friendly and enthused. Super knowledgeable about pizza history, cooking techniques, ingredients, and differentiating the experience among 3 diff types of pizza - from Neapolitan to coal oven to more modern grandma/Sicilian. Highly recommend for the pizza enthusiastic!

Amazing class! So fun and Scott is a wealth of information! I've made pizza at home before, but this was the first time it tasted like "real" pizza. Highly recommend this class!
