From Pizza Tower Wiki

Unfinished? Not on my watch!
This article is a work in progress. You can help the wiki by finishing it. Notes: Lots of things to do:

  • Write about as much as possible revealed about Maurice in the History section.
  • Rename some of the filenames for the images in the Gallery.

Maurice is a character in Pizza Tower that only shows in the end of Swap Mode.


Maurice shares many physical traits with Peppino, being a portly man wearing a black t-shirt under a tank-top. However, the tank-top and chef hat he wears are green instead of white. Maurice also has thicker eyebrows, thicker and longer mustache, longer hair, and a more notable stubble. He's often depicted with a much more angrier expression. During his appearance on the Ancient Aliens stream, he wore a MLB New York Mets ballcap incorrectly affixed to his Z-axis. Similar to El Diego's Comically large sombrero.


Before The Noise Update released, McPig streamed him and friends playing through the DOOM mod, Ancient Aliens.[1] In it, McPig played as Pizza Tower Guy, while other friends played as other characters, them being Peppino, The Noise (played by Cactus Companion[2]), a Stupid Rat (played by Kyoobot[3]), The Real Doise, El Diego (played by Basinga[4]), Tony Soprano (played by Vorco Rot-Gut[5]), Heavy Weapons Guy (Played by DarthLother[6]), Homer Simpson and Maurice (played by Laserblasterguy[7]). During the stream, other players would act like their characters and banter. This revealed potential in-universe history about Maurice, but it is unknown if it is canon to Pizza Tower or not.


On the stream, Maurice reveals a lot about himself and his relation to Peppino. His full name is Maurice Spaghetti, and is brothers with Peppino. He dislikes him, constantly criticizes and insults him, and has thrown Peppino's DVD set of Stargate in a river when they were younger. Maurice attempted to guilt trip Peppino for refusing to visit him and Nonna one year for Christmas, saying that they were expecting him to bring home a goose to eat. He claimed that because he did not show, their Nonna starved, even while Maurice had brought his own meal for himself. He frequently disapproves of the path Peppino has taken in his life, saying that he should have dropped the pizzeria business and worked at the garbage factory with him because it's an honest living. He even berates Peppino for getting his son, Maurice Jr., a bike instead of a Nintendo Switch. By extension, he doesn't seem to like his Italian heritage, calling it bullshit.

Maurice is shown to hold himself in high regard and constantly talks about himself, even mentioning how he has heart problems and is taking medication for it, and how he loves to gamble. He has many stories, often revolving around his sack of nickels. He has hit a lady with said sack at the laundromat for not accepting nickels, gave a young man a concussion with the sack for playing on his favorite arcade machine despite the man moving aside politely, knocked the eye of someone nicknamed "Fat Joseph" out of his eye socket with the sack after he tried to hustle at a pool hall, and potentially more. He may have a gambling addiction, as he not only plays "video pinball poker", he convinced Nonna Spaghetti to spend 8000 dollars on "psychic crystals" to attempt to boost his success gambling on horse races.

Notably, while expressing distaste to several of the other characters during the event and even Gustavo, who was not present, he was largely fine with The Noise, saying he seemed fine enough to not need an update; alongside not understanding why Peppino hates him so much and thinking that "he just seems like a Christmas elf."


In Pizza Tower's Swap Mode end screen, he is seen as the actor The Noise had hired to play as Peppino in the movie.
