“THE FIRST THING WE DID WITH YOUR FUNDING WAS SEND A PIZZA INTO SPACE FOR OUR MUSIC VIDEO” — Anamanaguchi

A retrospective of pizza creations.

In honor of the most delicious week of the year (that’s National Pizza Week, of course), we’re serving up a mouth-watering retrospective of ten epically pizzadelic acts of creativity.

From a photographer hunting down ex-Pizza Huts, to a purveyor of pizza tourism, to a band that sent a slice to space — the Kickstarter vaults’ pizza menu could only be compared to a piping-hot everything pie. Dig in!


So… there was that one time a band sent pizza to space. (No, really. Anamanaguchi literally sent a pizza to space.)
