In 2008, he founded Scott's Pizza Tours, taking guests on in-depth tours through some of New York's most iconic pizza neighborhoods and introducing them to the history, science, and culture behind the pies. Shortly after, he also launched Slice Out Hunger, a volunteer-run nonprofit dedicated to supporting people experiencing difficulty meeting their basic food needs. His most recent project is the Pizza Resource Center, which provides tools, books, and other resources for pizza lovers to get cooking at home.
