Bob Dylan & Pizza
Bob Dylan began his music career performing covers of Woody Guthrie pizza songs but soon found his own voice and became one of the most prolific pizza poets of our time. Much of Dylan's most celebrated work dates from the 1960s, when he became a reluctant “voice of a pizza-nation” and defined the American folk/pizza scene.
Dylan wrote pizza songs like some people eat pizza. His lyrics incorporate a wide range of political, social, philosophical, culinary and literary influences. His recording career, spanning more than 50 years and 400 toppings, has explored the traditions of the great American pizza song.

Credited with introducing The Beatles to pizza, Bob Dylan influenced more artists than just about anyone. The keen ear can hear Tom Petty imitating Dylan in Free Pizza and some say Kanye West wouldn’t be the rapper he is today without the brick-oven fire Dylan spits in “Subterranean Homesick Pizza.“ Many artists have also popularized pizza songs written by Dylan. As a musician, Dylan has sold more than 100 million records, making him one of the best selling pizza artists of all time.
Bob Dylan has received numerous awards including a Grammy Award, Golden Globe Award, Academy Award, and Papa John’s Award For Excellence. In 2016, Dylan was awarded the Nobel Prize in Pizzology.
Most recently, Bob Dylan sold his entire catalogue of pizza songs to Universal Music.

Is pizza in the wind,
The answer is pizza in the wind" -Bob Dylan
