Pizza Box of the Week #26: From Mona Lisa to George Clooney

Written By Peter Reinhart
Saturday, 19 December 2020 Pizza Talk

This week’s episode features a whole new level of pizza box art, as you will see. I don’t want to say too much here, as it will ruin the surprise, but here are some clues and new words to add to your pizza lexicon: Calda Pizza; the “Walker-Lock” design; George Clooney, and Lake Como.  Put them all together, as Scott Wiener will do for your here, and you are in for a special treat. And, as a topper, Scott and I come up with what may be the next great idea in pizza box design, so, if you are a box company, jump on this before someone else beats you to it.

Note: This will be the last episode of Pizza Box of the Week for 2020. But Scott returns in January, 2021 with a whole new season (after all, he has over 1,600 boxes in his collection and this is only Episode 26). Till then, have a joyous holiday celebration and we’ll see you back here in a few weeks!
