Pizza is one of the most loved food in the world, originating in Italy (Naples), a long time ago. What is certain is the date of birth of the Pizza Margherita (or at least the name): the year 1889, and it was dedicated to the Italian Queen: Margherita of Savoy.

Italian immigrants have brought pizza around the world, and we want to celebrate this now global food with Passione’s Pizza Playing Cards. The goal is to represent fun, likable characters from all over the world cooking, serving or delivering pizza. Who is gonna eat all that pizza? But you of course, dear backers!

Of course Italians are at the heart of this deck, how could it be different? The King is Mario, a "pizzaiolo" from Naples, while the Jack, Antonio (Tony for his friends) rides a Vespa and delivers pizzas in the neighborhood. If you go to Mario's pizzeria you'll meet the lovely Queen: Maria. Don't forget to order the typical "Margherita", sometimes the best things are the simplest ones.

Nusret (a true King!) runs the sophisticated Turkish pizzeria where Jasmine, the Queen,works as a waitress. Nusret is a top-level chef and his Arabian pizza is one of the most appreciated. He can deliver pizza wherever he wants, thanks to Khalid, a Jack driving a super sporty SUV.

Bob owns a restaurant in Kentucky, and they don't call him "the King of pizza" for nothing: his "pepperoni" pizza is to die for! If you can survive the awesomeness of his pizza, chances are you'll be struck by his daughter hotness: Harper serves at the tables like a true Queen and it's not uncommon to see customers flirting with her. Tyler, the Jack, is a fitness fanatic and sometimes he takes the longer road to delivery your pizza, just to train more. But don't worry, he's never late!

Wang opened a pizzeria in his hometown a long time ago and his popularity has grown over time. Now, after fifiteen years he is recognized as the King of pizza, also thanks to his super Mayo Jaga pizza, and his daughter, Zoe, is ready to carry on with the pizzeria, becoming the Queen of Mayo Jaga pizza. Although their pizzas are unconventional, Wang and Zoe stick more to the tradition when it comes to delivery: Zhao is the Jack that will drive his rickshaw everywhere to bring you a hot pizza, always with a smile on his face.

When you buy a tier with 4, 8 or 12 decks, you'll get 1,2 or 3 "pizza boxes", respectively. We are not going to create a "brick box" for this project: instead you will get three pizza boxes with decks inside.

After this campaign, pizza boxes will not be available anymore.

The pizza box is already included in your pledge. We have already selected a supplier and we just need to finalize the artwork and the choice of materials.

. Sharing the link on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and other social media can really help Pizza Playing Cards in reaching the goal and going even further.

We really want to go the extra mile to create something new, fun and enjoyable, but to do so we need to allow the dough to rise - if you catch my meaning!

Risks and challenges

Passione Playing Cards, LLC gained experience from the 'Love is a Smoke Classic Edition', 'Teliad' and 'Inferno' projects, and we think we have a good understanding of the issues that may arise during or after a Kickstarter campaign. We also know that any project always has risks, which in this cases usually means delays. We promise to keep you posted and to do our best to limit any impact on the delivery.

DESIGN PHASE: the artwork for the playing cards is complete, we will start the operative phases (digital proofs, hard proofs and production) as soon as the campaign ends.

PRODUCTION PHASE: LPCC is well known to playing cards lovers. They already produced our previous projects and we work together very well.

FULFILLING PHASE: we will fulfil Pizza Playing Cards through Gambler’s Warehouse. They have a lot of experience when it comes to shipping decks, and we think we are in good hands.
