Pizza Brain

Goal: $15,000

Raised: $16,587

"There's a museum out there dedicated to french fries, kiwis, chocolate, Pez dispensers,even burnt food—and yet, no one has ever thought to curate a museum honoring what is arguably the most celebrated food on the planet," wrote the would-be museum founders in early 2012, when their Kickstarter goal launched. A year earlier, Guinness World Records had dubbed the pizza memorabilia collection the largest in the world. Of the 326 backers, 285 gave enough to enjoy some free pizza—claimable since the restaurant-museum opened in September 2012.
