Pizzalicious Shopping Guide

The holidays are upon us and I have a few ideas for the pizza lovers in your life... or maybe you would like to inspire some pizza love. Either way I've got you covered with these pizzalicious gifts!

Pizza for Dummies Kit
I don't appreciate the name of this product but I do believe it has everything a beginner needs to get their kitchen into shape for some serious pizza making.

$24.99 at Macy's

Pizza of the Month Club - Chicago Style
This is perfect for the Chicago pizza lover in your life. Every month they'll deliver three frozen Chicago style deep dish pies to your door. the website says, "Each is an authentic gourmet pizza, handmade for you by a noted Chicago pizza chef with a creative soul." Who can argue with that? You can sign up for as many months as you want. 12 Months - $649.40

Cheese of the month
Murray's Cheese has cheese of the month and meat of the month clubs that will be sure to delight your pizza making friends and their La Doce Vita basket would definitely please me.... hint. You can purchase really real Mozzarella di Bufala Campana, made all proper like in Lazio and Campania, Italy.

Pizza Shirt
This shirt by Volcom features over 55 slices of delicious pizza. It is 100% cotton and machine washable. This one is on sale for $10.93 at, but you can find similarly awesome shirts on Threadless and Glennz T-shirts. Check out the Pizzalicious posts from Pizza Fashion Week for more pizza apparel gift ideas.

Pizza Art
I have recently been stumbling upon some really great photos of pizza parlor store fronts and the like. I think a great gift for any pizza lover would be a nice photo of their favorite local pizzeria or maybe a vintage photo of a pizzeria from back in the day. Check out "Hot Italian Pizza" (pictured) by Nat Norman for 21.99 at or "Pizza" By Skip Hunt at, the Pizza Punch photo contest winner, at Sarah McGee Photography. I love the "The Red Pizzeria," by Ashley Summer.

If photos aren't your thing, a good way to start an art collection is by purchasing works from upcoming artists and prints which are usually less expensive. Check out some of these works.

Pizza Crafts
Cute craft site, Etsy, has tons of pizza related crafts for pizza aficionados of all ages. The pizzalicious craft topping my list is this slice-tastic pillow from PinFlair. Etsy also has beautiful handmade wooden pizza cutters (Craftiness), pizza scented candles (Kittredgecandles), pizza scented soap (Sapone Soaps) tons of adorable crocheted pizza crafts. pizza sauce spice blends, pizza dough kits, pizza necklaces, earrings, toys. and tons of other crafty crafts for pizza lovers of all ages.

Pizza Books
Challenge your pizza making friends with a new cook book. Make it something wild like Pizza on the Grill: 100 Feisty Fire-Roasted Recipes for Pizza & More by Elizabeth Karmel and Bob Blumer. Or present them with a book on the more historic side of pizza. I recommend Pizza: A Slice of Heaven by Ed Levine or Pizza by Silvana Franco, which is a cook book with beautiful photographs and delicious, innovative recipes. More books here.

Pizza Promise
Of course, a homemade pie shared with friends is always a warm and welcome gift. Surprise and impress your friends with pizzaliciousness using this coupon. Just click to enlarge. Print it, fill it out and hand it over for them to cash in! It's a perfect stocking stuffer for individuals or set a date for a pizza party and have friends bring it when they all arrive.
