Pizza Industry Spokesman

My Story

My name is Matt McClellan and I wear many hats…all under the same umbrella. I am 36 years old, an author of the “30 Day Pizza Diet,” inventor of the Pizza Cooking Divider, founder of Tour de Pizza and Fuhgidabowdit Pizzeria, I am a husband and father, founding member of Sigma Nu fraternity in Southern Illinois University, founder of the Mulberry/Alvord Neighborhood Watch Association, participant in the 84th Annual Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, public speaker on the “Pizza Cruise,” creator of Pepperoni the Pig, host of the World’s Largest Pizza Party, creator of the 1st Annual NYC Pizza Marathon, decorated Pizziaolo with Award Winning Pizza, philanthropist, pizza consultant, health and fitness coach for the US Pizza Team and the Pizza Industry Spokesman.

I wrote a book about how I UNIFIED THE PIZZA INDUSTRY, CHANGED THE IMAGE OF PIZZA FROM A JUNK FOOD TO A HEALTH FOOD , AND INSPIRED A NATION TO GET HEALTHY, ONE SLICE AT A TIME!

I had a ton of industry support and sponsors that can attest to my dedication and my support for the pizza diet.

The book will tell my story of how I became the Pizza Industry Spokesman, explain the 30 Day Pizza Diet, and Tour De Pizza 2010.

In our Industry there are 2 Trade Magazines (Pizza Today and PMQ)

For the past 15 years they have competed head 2 head for title of “BEST OF”

  1. Trade show
  2. Magazine
  3. Number of subscribers
  4. Best Pizza
  5. Best Pizza Maker
  6. Fastest Pizza Maker etc

All the while, each year a “NEW” diet book, exercise program, or doctor wants to destroy our image, which takes business and money away from us Independent Pizzeria owners. As a Independent Pizza Operator I needed someone to represent my pizzeria in the media.  THERE WAS NO SUCH VOICE, SO I BECAME IT!

Through my process of changing the image of pizza, I united these two publications for the good of the Industry, made pizza a HEALTH FOOD, and inspired people to get healthy.

The Pizza Industry has never had a UNIFIED VOICE, to combat the doctors, nutritionists, and fad diets that say pizza is a junk food.  I have dedicated my career to FIGHTING THIS FIGHT FOR ALL!

Did you know they are attempting to add a 18% PIZZA TAX, in hopes of discouraging people to eat pizza, therefore fighting Obesity!  Instead of educating people how to enjoy America’s favorite food they want to destroy families and how they support themselves.  THIS HAS TO STOP!

Like a Roman Gladiator prepared for battle, I am here to fight this fight for EVERYONE in the Pizza Industry!
