Where to get other "pizza porn" pic galleries.
« on: May 30, 2014, 12:31:35 PM »
I was dismayed that the Slice website seems to have gotten absorbed and pared down by their Serious Eats parent website. Unless I'm missing something, they seem to have done away with their My Pie Monday pic gallery that I always looked froward to. Aside from the "Post a Pic of Your Pie" thread here, and by trolling the forum generally, are there sites anyone can recommend for high volume pizza pics? It's preferable to see a description and at least a loose recipe, but not entirely necessary in my opinion.  Thought there would be more blogs like that on Tumblr but they seem to be incredibly splotchy, and I'm too lazy to maintain one myself.

I saw last week they had a note to submit pictures for my pie monday, but then I never saw one run.  I wonder if people aren't submitting because they think it's gone.

The last edition of MPM said it would be the last edition.

Can anyone recommend any other pizza making websites, not just pics, but in general? A billion to 2 billion people a year must eat pizza, but this site seems to be the only game in town. I'm not complaining about not getting enough out of this forum mind you, I'm just intellectually intrigued that there could be such a dirth of info on such a broad subject.

I sometimes visit the PMQ website, but that's for pizza businesses rather than shlubs like myself.

What follows is the "blogroll" from my anemic personal pizza weblog (a site which I rarely update these days). I can't guarantee the freshness of any of these sites/blogs. You may even recognize some of them as folks from Pizzamaking.com! Some are more photo-heavy than others.

I am also a big proponent of scanning Instagram for beautiful pizza porn these days. If you know where to look, you'll find a pretty tight-knit little community of pizzamakers, both pro and amateur, sharing photos of their pizza.

The thing with these sites, though, is that most of them are labors of love, and most of them wax and wane with the owners' available free time. You'll see a lot of them charge out of the gate fast and hard only to peter out after a few months or a year. Something like Pizzamaking.com can prosper year after year because so many people come here and contribute and there's always new blood. I have seen now a couple generations of board mavens come and go for whatever reason. But there are always new people who seem to step up to replace them. No so with the individual blogs/websites.

It's sad, though, because I do think that things like Facebook and Instagram are killing off the desire for people to publish blogs like they used to. It is much easier to post up a photo to Instagram or Facebook than to go and write a blog post about it and provide much actual information about the pizza in question.
¡Hasta la pizza!

Thanks for including my blog, Adam. And thanks, on behalf of many others, for making that list and sharing it.

I feel the same way. I don't even like the new social media platforms, nor use them. Blogs, not only did they come with descriptions, but often 10-20 pictures of the process which was always enlightening.

Yeah. My latest post has about 40 pictures. Some of the pizzas look great and some of them look like crap, but I wanted to tell the whole story, plus I'm always trying new things (which sometimes leads to not-great-looking pizzas). I intended to delete a lot of the pictures after relying on friends and followers to tell me which ones should go, but people said to keep them all up, so I did. Good to hear more similar thoughts.
