Can I build a pizza using SVG data and “cook” it?

# SVG, Processing, Animation, Pizza


If there is one thing you need to know about me, it’s that I love pizza. Real pizza. Crappy microwave pizza. Heck, even those fruit pizzas people make in the summer! When learning new technologies, I find it most productive if I can incorporate something that I know will keep my interest up. Thus, the SVGIZZA was born. I like to consider myself the best pizza coder on either side of the Mississippi.

  1. Figure out the best way to optimize the SVG data for quick loading.
  2. What is the best way to animate the SVGIZZA?
  3. What is the best way to trigger the animation to run again?

I’m still investigating the possibilities.
