Thanks, norma! Their character comes through in the menu! Looking forward to your thoughts on the food once you take a trip to check it out (while it's open!).

Craig,

What do you think of Pizza Brain?  Thanks for the additional article.  ;)

The pizza looks tasty to me.  I like the fresh toppings.

If anyone is interested they can follow the tweetzas from Pizza Brain.

If you click under the photo from Nicole Brewer there is a funny picture of Brian Dwyer with a pizza costume.

If anyone searches on Google images there are a lot of pictures.

I saw this on Pizza Brain facebook wall today.

After serving thousands of slices and pies this week, Pizza Brain is closed for inventory today. Thanks, Philadelphia for checking us out during our opening week (and for returning again and again). We will be back in full effect resuming our normal hours of operation Tuesday, September 18 at 11am.

A few posters said they had planned to go to Pizza Brain today.

You know what? This is pretty much the only pizza brain I really care about.

Disclaimer: Don't necessarily believe anything I say here. My brain ain't quite right anymore (unless it is). If I come off as rude or argumentative, that's probably not my intention. Rather, that's just me being honest, to myself and everyone else; partly because I don't have enough time left to BS either you or myself. If you are offended by anything I say, it's probably because you think lying to people (to be "polite") is a good idea. I don't.

Steve and I went to visit Pizza Brain today (along with visiting 3 other pizzerias in the Philly area) and guess who we saw when we first got there.  Paulie Gee.  :o What a pleasant surprise!  ;D Guess Pizza Brains think alike.  :-D

Paulie’s tweet.

The pizza was great at Pizza Brain today!  ;D :pizza: :pizza: :pizza:

Steve and I went on a pizza tour today with Pizza Brain being our first stop. 

The guys at Pizza Brain are so friendly and Pizza Brain pizzas are delicious.  Steve and I only ordered 2 slices and split them, because we were going to eat more pizzas later.  If we wouldn’t have been going to eat more pizzas later, I sure know I would have tried more slices.  The slices we ate were really great.  The toppings were perfect and the crust was great.  They use the best pepperoni on their pies.  The sauce was so well balanced and the other ingredients used make a perfect pizza in my opinion.  I will go back to Pizza Brain sometime and try more pies.

We got to go outside and look at the mural.  It also looked great!

I decided to try the pizza ice cream at Little Baby’s Ice Cream Shoppe and it did taste exactly like a pizza.  :-D

I asked at what temperature they bake their pizzas and they said they turn the oven the whole way up to 650 degrees F.  I also asked how long the pies bake and they said about 5 to 6 minutes depending on how many pies are in the oven. 

Two videos.





More pictures of Pizza Brain and Little Baby’s Ice Cream Shoppe.

I would recommend for anyone to try Pizza Brain pizzas.

Steve, thank you so much for taking me on the pizza road trip today.  I had a bunch of fun!  :P
