The People behind The Pizza Project
The Cheese Wizz
The Cheese Wizz has a fondness for Cool Ranch Doritos, fireside chats and just about anything besides politics. A true outdoors man, he has been deemed by his mother as a "caveman" after designing and installing a fire pit in his parents' backyard. Never one to shy away from a meal, he enjoys the thrill of creating his own masterpieces, or Frankensteins, with local ingredients. Engineer by degree, soap maker by day, and food and beer connoisseur by night. He may not always have an answer, but never hesitates to speak his mind. The Wizz is constantly on a journey to learn and always in deep thought, thanks to one of the best Engineering educations. Favorite ways to relax include exercising, backyard games, Angry Birds and being a goofball.
Home-based in the suburbs of Philadelphia, Ellio Totino is actually two people blogging under the same name. This married pair provide a critical review of local pizza eateries (and a few other non-pizza locations) west of Philly. Their blogger name originates from their cat – Ellio (who is an orange tabby named after Ellio’s frozen pizza) and Totino Pizza Rolls, which (in case you live under a rock) are frozen pizza-like snacks. Their palette of pizza is classic – cheesy, a little greasy, with tasty sauce and fresh dough.
Saucy “The Sauce Boss” McGilliguddy
Saucy “The Sauce Boss” McGilliguddy is a refined fellow of genteel charm. He also just happens to like the sh*t out of a tasty tomato sauce. He enjoys writing about pizza, film, music, sports, popular culture, and people and things that he really hates. Especially the part about the things and people who he hates. He loves the works of Kubrick, of Radiohead, of Hunter S., of Dali, of Cliff Lee. And he believes that if you don’t like these things, you are probably swine. Most of all, he simply believes in the incredible power of the written word to influence and entertain. Unless it is written by John Grisham or something. In which case, it blows.
Crusty really is the total package. Girls love him and guys want to be him. Picture that guy from the Dos Equis commercials times 10. Well, at least that's how he views himself, and thanks to the beauty of Internet anonymity, you'll really never know. Crusty loves a great pizza, especially the crust of one. He'll usually save a bit for his crust-loving Jack Russell Terrier. When he's not eating pizza, Crusty can been found at his local watering hole watching the Phillies and enjoying a nice craft beer in a fancy glass. He's also a big fan of fine wines, whiskeys and cigars. Favorite pastimes: looking for ridiculous images from Google, facebooking and tweeting. He hopes to one day be a big deal in social media.
Spicy writes about technology by day, pizza and beer by night. Her handle is a variation on the traditional Hawaiian pie: pepperoni, pineapple and jalapenos. And yes, she likes it hot. In addition to pizza reviews (fresh, frozen and DIY), she enjoys sharing her two cents on libations, parenting an active, hilarious toddler, local hotspots, and life with a bulldog who truly thinks he's a human. Life goals: marry the man of her dreams (check), run a marathon (check), raise an incredibly loving and awesome kid (in progress), and make a million bucks from a wildly successful pizza blog. If you'd like to help her out with that last one, fan us on facebook, follow us on twitter or email her about advertising or joint promotion opportunities.
