Pizza is finally back!
We launched the Pizza Keyboards project nearly 1 year ago with a very specific roadmap in mind, and the response has been amazing.


Our first mission was to offer fast shipping times with no compromise on the product quality, and we achieved it by partnering with local suppliers. Starting from this idea we developed a simple product that aimed at pragmaticism: a seamless, minimalistic top-mount style board with a great sound profile and lot of customization possibilities, thanks to the specifically designed PizzaPCB, supporting ANSI/ISO compatibility and extra broken-out GPIO pins.

We are now ready to launch again our Pizza65, improving our solid recipe to bring it at the next quality level!




The casing is now made of an upgraded, higher quality 6082 series aluminum and then hand-finished with a new sandblasting process. We are also collaborating with a new partner for better anodization: this results in a premium, grainy looking but smooth at touch surface finish. To match this rich texture we decided to add a new sandblasted option for our brass plate (both ANSI and ISO):




And we are also introducing a new clear-anodized Silver Ash colorway to celebrate this beautiful material and the great finish we achieved: this special edition will be exclusively available with our new brass option.

Along with the new improved Pizza65 R2 we are officially launching the most requested feature since our first release, the new hot-swap Slice65 PCB!



Available in ANSI and featuring the newly released 2nd Generation Kailh Hot-Swap sockets, the Slice65 maintains and improves the features of the original PizzaPCB.
 - HASL-Lead Free matte black finish
 - Extra GPIO Pins
 - STM32 F0 Microcontroller
 - QMK and VIA compatibility
 - Redesigned ESD protection
 - 6000 cycle hot-swap sockets by Kailh (vs the 100 cycle original 1st gen available in most PCBs)
*more pics coming soon*

A more limited batch of the original solderable PizzaPCB will be available during the GB.
PizzaPCB supports both ISO and ANSI, stepped capslock and split backspace.
 
*pics coming soon*

After the multiple requests we decided to make the new Sandblasted Brass Plate and the Silver Ash Edition available in ISO too. Unfortunately it's not easy for us to offer ISO because MOQ is pretty difficult to reach, but we are glad to offer this new colorway in our European layout! Silver Ash ISO will come with PizzaPCB, all the info coming on the web page

Great news!!!  :cool: (grazie!!!)

If I can give you some advice, you know what they say in our country, no? "lontano dagli occhi, lontano dal cuore" ["Out of sight, out of mind"].
You could maybe do some render with ISO layout to tempt people ...  :p

Week 1 surprise: we are now giving the possibility the buy replacement top parts for the Pizza65, in any color.
Thanks to the seamless top mount design this allows to rapidly change the visible color of the board (and naturally they are compatible with original R1 Pizzas).
Stay tuned for more news, we have one that you will probably like planned for next monday!


P.S. If someone that already placed an R2 order wants to add it please contact us via info@keyboards.pizza or DM us on Instagram (if it comes back online  :))

sorry for not clarifying my reason. It is not because of the logo, it's because they additionally tax you very heavily upon arrival.
I do not want to skip this fyi.
