About this project

Hello all! 

Thanks for taking a peek at my project page. Pizza Bonanza is a five-episode webseries. Comprising each webisode will be a cooking segment, and a workout segment. I'll spend the first half of the show teaching you how to make a pizza. I'll spend the second half demonstrating pizza-related dance moves- I hope you enjoyed "The Cheese Sprinkle" and the "Pizza Toss" in the project video!

I've been a huge pizza fan for many years now- making pizzas was my first job ever! Recently, I've been working on improving my pizza making skills, and creating new recipes. I'd love to share these with you, and show you how to make them on a cooking web series.

But that's not all! I also have been working on "pizzercise"- pizza related dance moves. Pizzercise is a super fun way to work up an appetite while your pizza is cooking. What better way to understand the pizza you're about to eat, than through emulating the pizza in dance?

I'm raising funds to purchase some equipment to make the show run a little smoother, and look a little nicer- namely lights, a tripod, a small microphone that I can attach to my shirt while cooking, and perhaps a headset for the workout segment.

I'm hoping to have the first webisode available in May. Moving forward, I plan to have a webisode ready each following month, through September.

I have some pretty neat rewards, that you can check out on the right hand side of the page.

Here is an example of an illustration you might see on your postcard:

This is one dancing pizza that I drew that you might see on your postcard! Drippiness of cheese legs may vary.

Have you ever thought about getting in touch with your inner pizza? Allow me to help! If you select the spirit pizza reward, I'll send you a quiz that will provide me with enough information to divine what your spirit pizza is. I gave my brother Jon the spirit pizza quiz, and here's a photo of his pizza! It has a special tomato sauce with worcestershire and green chili peppers, and it's topped with mozz, and shrimp and green peppers that have been sauteed with garlic and chipotle tabasco sauce. Chopped parsley on top! (Also, huge shoutout to Jon for making the sweet pizza beats in my video!)

Thanks again for scoping out Pizza Bonanza! Get to pledging if you want to make killer pizzas and pizzercise the night away!

Risks and challenges

I think I've given myself enough time to create each webisode, but it's possible that there could be unforeseen circumstances that could cause a delay. I'll be sure to keep everyone updated regularly though, so there's no confusion about what's going on. I know that you'll be clamoring for new pizza recipes and fresh pizza dance moves to bust out at the club, so I'll do everything in my power to deliver those to you in a timely fashion.

    What's your spirit pizza? I'll tell you! I'll send you a quiz (questions may include: what's your sign, favorite childhood memory, favorite movie, etc.) and once I receive your responses, I'll create the recipe for a pizza that most resembles your spirit. I'll mail you a recipe card, and a description of why this pizza is your spirit pizza. You'll also have access to the Pizza Bonanza series!
