Billing itself as the “official and original pizza Twitter account,” @tweetlikeapizza features photos best qualified as #pizzaporn, exploring the food’s plentiful possibilities (pizza fries, pizza cones, pizza nachos, etc.). “I have many verified, well-known pizza companies who follow my account, including Domino’s Pizza, Dr. Oetker Pizza, the official @pizzahut, Pizza Hut U.K., and lots of other Pizza Huts in different countries. It’s a privilege,” says founder Scott Harris. So don’t be fooled by imposters—this here is the real deal.
The pizza tattoo is perhaps the ultimate display of commitment to this fabulous food. If you’re in the market for some tasty ink inspiration, check out @pizzatattoos on Instagram. (Also on the horizon, the first ever International Pizza Tattoo Week. Really.)
We can think of few better uses for Instagram than an account packed with Polaroids of badass girls chowing down on steamy slices. Founded by 25-year-old Marta Freedman last May after a rough period in her life (during which she suffered the loss of her mom and the end of a long-term relationship), the project that started as a fun hobby has blossomed into a phenomenon. Here, we chat with Freedman about rad chicks and cheesy goodness.
How do you curate the account?
I think of HGEP as a “tasteful photo project celebrating cool girls and hot pizza.” I try to feature business owners, musicians, stylists, editors—just strong, creative, entrepreneurial women.
Who have been some of your favorite people to photograph?
Girls that I once followed, who I now call friends! For example, I photographed designer Jena Kane of the brand The Lost Pony, and now we are working on an apparel collaboration.
What would you say are the most iconic “hot girl + pizza” moments in history?
Julia Roberts in Mystic Pizza. (I loved watching that movie with my mom.) And more recently when Ellen served pizza to guests at the Oscars—there are photos of everyone from Jennifer Lawrence to Meryl Streep.
What are the most photogenic pizzas in New York?
One of my favorites is Prince Street Pizza. The lighting is always on point and Polaroids look great resting on their pepperoni cups.
Why is it hot to eat pizza?
I think when a girl really enjoys eating pizza she projects an “IDGAF” attitude and people love it!
