Donut Pizza: Pizza or Pastry? || Really Dough?

Published on 8/12/2019 by Thrillist
After a good night’s sleep at a hotel, Mark heads to pick up some donuts and coffee for breakfast in a great mood. But when he spots something special on the menu, he realizes he has to get Scott over there immediately! Scott, touched by the fact that Mark clearly misses him already, rushes to PVDonuts in Providence, Rhode Island to discover the pizza donut! Will this donut follow Mark’s strict formula for pizza? Does Mark’s newfound enthusiasm mean that there’s another pizza road trip with Scott in the future?

What makes a pizza, a pizza? Lucali owner and old-school Brooklyn pizzaiolo Mark Iacono has a strict pizza formula: sauce, cheese, and dough. That’s it. But renowned pizza enthusiast Scott Wiener believes that the beauty of the slice comes from its creative customizability; even if it’s topped with cheeseburgers or constructed with paella. Scott travels all over America to spotlight the country’s most unique pies and make a case for whether these new customizations can, in fact, still be considered a pizza. This time, he’s taking Mark along for the ride on an East Coast road trip to try the craziest concoctions claiming to be pizza... but are they really dough?
