Pizza chef caricatures on Flickr

Coinciding with the beginning of Pizza Month 2010, I’ve launched the Pizza Chef Caricature group photo pool on Flickr, dedicated to stereotypical portrayals of pizza-makers (or “pizzaioli”) typically seen on local pizzeria menus, signage, and take-out boxes.

Quality examples typically feature a majority of the following elements:
Pizza Chef Caricature

  • Mustache
  • Classic chef’s toque hat
  • Plumpness
  • Friendly hand gesture, such as the “OK” pinch or thumbs-up
  • Winking eye
  • Neckerchief or bow-tie
  • Apron
  • Pizza in hand, or mid-air in spin toss
  • Steam lines coming off said pizza
  • Other accessories, such as a pizza cutter or a peel

New submissions are welcome!
