WHAT IS PIZZA BED?
FLASHBACK: It's 3am on a Sunday morning, I'm shivering on a Brooklyn street corner in the dead of winter, clutching a slice of pizza and wishing aloud that I could actually crawl inside of it, where it's safe and warm. Suddenly, somewhere deep inside my frozen and beer-fueled brain, Pizza Bed was born. Later that morning (after some coffee and photoshop) the design landed in the "weird stuff" section of my online portfolio.
But was I the only one who wanted that holy moment - when a piping hot slice hits your frozen hands after you've been dragged from bar to bar, the indication that it's finally time to go home and stop pretending you love meeting strangers - to last forever?
Luckily, I was not.
I discovered this about a year later, as I was scrolling through Instagram and my Pizza Bed popped up on my feed. Then it started showing up on some of my favorite internet places like Buzzfeed, Mashable, @diplo, and @thefatjewish, so I decided it was time to make this dream a reality for all my pizza-loving brethren.
I'm here because I love pizza and I want to sleep inside it. If you feel as strongly as I do about the most perfect food in the universe, then the Pizza Bed is the bed for you.
Each Pizza Bed comes with a fitted sheet, a flat sheet, a duvet cover, and two standard pillow cases.
WILL PIZZA BED FIT ON MY BED? (Yes.)
The sheets are designed for standard mattress sizes. To give you a better idea of how the "cheese" will drape:
- Twin duvet is 66 x 96 inches
- Full/Queen duvet is 92 x 102 inches
- King duvet 102 x 108 inches
HOW MUCH DOUGH? (See what I did there?)
- Twin Pizza Bed is $150 (**$100 for Early Backers**)
- Full/Queen Pizza Bed is $175 (**$125 for Early Backers**)
- King Pizza Bed is $200 (**$150 for Early Backers**)
BUT HOW WILL YOU DO IT?
I'm already in contact with a supplier and I've seen fabric samples, so once the Kickstarter is funded, I'll give the go ahead to get this cheesy dream cookin! These are the photos for production (they may appear at a lower resolution on this site.)
Production will take approximately 60-75 days. Once I have received the sets, I will ship them out in their own custom pizza boxes.
Other rewards will most likely ship before Pizza Beds. The budget for the entire project is:
- Initial production run of Pizza Beds + packaging: $105,848
- Storage and shipping: approx. $8,000
- Other rewards: approx. $2,000
- Kickstarter and Amazon fees: $10,000
WHAT OTHER COOL THINGS CAN I GET?
$1 - I will send out positive vibes for your next slice of pizza:
$5 - A hand-written thank you note sealed with a pizza grease kiss AND posi vibes for your next slice of pizza.
$15 - A sheet of pizza themed temporary tattoos AND a hand-written thank you note sealed with a pizza grease kiss AND posi vibes for your next slice of pizza.

$225 - If you're like "I want a Full/Queen Pizza Bed but I also want all that other cool stuff!"

$1,000 - I will design a custom, one-of-a-kind pizza artwork on 36" x 48" canvas to hang above your bed.
$10,000 - Dear celebrities and/or moguls who have posted Pizza Bed on their instagrams, this is for you *cough, cough...Diplo...cough.* Receive 10 Pizza Beds in whichever sizes you need. Plus 10x everything else. And my undying love and friendship if you're into that.
If you want more than one Pizza Bed (or extra prints and tattoos) because you're a true American hero, please see below:
Since you can only make a single pledge and only select one tier, please add up the amounts for the other items you would like and change your pledge amount once you've selected your base tier.
For example, if you want two Twin Pizza Beds, select the Twin Pizza Bed tier and change the pledge amount from $150 to $300.
Or, if you want a Full/Queen, a King, and a sheet of tattoos, select the Full/Queen tier and change the amount from $175 to $390 ($175 + $200 + $15)
Just want more other cool stuff? Like two sets of prints ($50 + $50) or three sheets of tattoos ($15 + $15 + $15)? The combinations are limitless. The world is your pizza.
If you want a reward that has a backer limit (eg. the Rest in Pizza pillow) and something else, please make sure you select the limited item as the base tier.
After the Kickstarter, I will email you to confirm exactly which items you want. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me!

Risks and challenges
My main challenge is that the initial production cost is so high because I am required to make such a large minimum order. Other than that, production delays can always arise but I will keep everyone informed if the timeline changes.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
