Scott's Pizza Tours runs public and private tours of New York's vast pizza landscape by bus and on foot. Every tour stops at multiple pizzerias, each highlighting a different phase in the evolution of the dish from its humble beginnings as a street snack to its current position as New Yorkers' food of choice. Guests get a slice at each stop and are guided through the kitchens and back rooms of the city's most significant pizzerias.

My husband and I did the Original Crosstown Pizza Walk with our tour guide Alexis. We LOVE pizza, but we will never look at a slice the same way again! We learned so much about the history of pizza, how it is made, etc. Not to mention, the pizza we had was unbelievably good!

Scott's Pizza Tours seemed like a genuine and funny tour, other than the plain tours offered by some of the I like to call mass offering tour companies. I was fortunate enough to be guided by Alexis, a comedian with a passion for pizza. The tour was packed with icebreakers, advice, endless pizza knowledge and authentic New Yorker perspectives. The...

This was such a great experience! We felt like our friend was sharing something with us from the hometown and interest (pizza) he loved! Please do this--you won't be sorry!

I took this tour on the advice of a friend. Right from the start I could tell that our guide was fun and super knowledgable about pizza. The first pizzeria we went to we got to see the oven, touch the dough, and had a place to sit and eat. We all got little books to rate our pizzas, sort... More

I would never have thought there was so much to know about pizza, until I met our tour guide, Alexis. I was floored by his detailed knowledge of everything from how the protein content of flour affects the dough to the best place in NYC to get pizza that uses canned mushrooms. It was a lot of information to take... More

We booked on a whim after reading a buzzfeed article about unusual tours, and we were not disappointed! We met our tour guide, Alexis (who is also a stand up comedian), and went to our first pizza place. Alexis knew his stuff about pizza and where it all came from, and his personality really did shine through. We had four... More

You can't go wrong with any of Scott's Pizza Tours, for anyone in your friend group, family, or co-workers! Everyone is always surprised at what they can learn about pizza, and also, how much joy there is in every slice! I have now sent at least a dozen people on the tour, and they are now sending their friends and... More

Staying in Nolita

Neighborhood Profile
Despite being just off of busy Houston Street, Nolita maintains a low-key vibe that makes it a pleasant retreat in the heart of lower Manhattan. Short for “North of Little Italy,” Nolita was once considered to be part of Little Italy. Today, the neighborhood is popular with young fashionistas popping in and out of the chic independent boutiques that line Mulberry, Mott and Elizabeth Streets. In addition to shopping, there are cozy restaurants and sidewalk cafes serving everything from new-school Italian food to the world-famous cronuts. While small in size (Nolita stretches just a few blocks in each direction), it’s a great neighborhood to spend an afternoon people watching, window-shopping, and grabbing a bite to eat.
