Slices was the blog I kept while creating, launching, and operating the Margot’s Pizza pop-up. It feels weird to look back at it now, in 2023 as I sit here mothballing the overall Margot’s Pizza website.
I remember in 2014 being so excited about this project and, as a longtime blogger whose wife did not and does not care about hearing hours of pizza talk, I naturally turned to the web. I needed a place to work through my recipes and ideas and to document my progress—both for myself and anyone who might be interested.
Most of what’s left here are recaps of various Margot’s Pizza test sessions and early pop-ups, before Matt, Emily, Tim, Blaze, and I worked out most of the kinks and I didn’t feel the need to blab online about every little detail of the process anymore.
For a brief period, I was also using this blog as a space to document visits to pizzerias around NYC, with the idea being that any visit to any pizzeria could inform details and directions of the Margot’s Pizza experience. I’ve since archived many of those posts and/or moved any still-relevant posts to the latest incarnation of my pizza blog, It’s Pizza Night.
I’m keeping this here as a snapshot of a moment in time that I miss—mostly for my own sake. If there’s anyone reading this, feel free to wander around and try not to cringe too much. Links to the archives and the most recent posts are below. As my daughter and the eponymous Margot herself said, “Nobody’s going to care about it but you.” Enjoy!
