Artwork to inspire poetry: Deep Dish Pizza

Deep Dish Pizza

This artwork is a photograph of a deep dish pizza with most of the background erased away and then colored black.  Although a deep dish pizza is food, it is also art.

This pizza was made some time in the past, and so the particular ingredients are uncertain, but some possible ingredients are: duck, mozzarella cheese, parmesan cheese, spinach, mushrooms, black olives, zucchini, orange bell pepper and tomato sauce.

This artwork can inspire poetry in a number of ways.  A poet could, for example, be inspired to write a poem about:

  • Something that happens in a pizzeria
  • Being hungry
  • The making of a pizza
  • Pizza being cooked at home
  • A party with pizza
  • The symbolism of combining ingredients
