Maybe we pizza pioneers of Philadelphia had the decks stacked against us from the start, like some sort of mythical underdog sports archetype hero who, in the face of nearly insurmountable odds, made the impossible happen while running up a bunch of museum steps. Maybe there’s a multiverse somewhere out there where pizza brain never came to be, and we never even bought a single pizza comic book to hang on our walls. Maybe it was a long shot.

On the other hand, we’ve always counted on pizza as a pretty safe bet.

Roses. Chocolate. Voodoo dolls. We get it.

This valentine’s, why not let pizza do the talking!?

Whether it be for a friend, lover, secret crush, enemy, or just yourself, Pizza Brain is getting all mushy with Philly this Valentine’s day by offering exclusive ‘heart shaped’ pizzas (broken or unbroken) to anyone who’s interested.

email: stephirwin@pizzabrain.org to place your order request and jump on the love train.

To make the deal even sweeter, we’re even offering personal messages/pizza puns inside your box to the recipient of your choice. Our dapper delivery specialists will deliver anywhere in the city. Feeling tingly yet?

fine print:

* pies available through pre-orders only. pre-orders will end by noon on valentine’s day, friday february 14th.

* ordering heart shaped pizzas may result in unadulterated make out seshes, crying fits, and/or awkward break ups.

* all menu items available.

* a small, sexy fee will be added to any and all heart shaped pizza orders – because it takes a lot of work to make them, and our cupids don’t work for free (add $3.00 for a heart shaped pizza, add $3.00 for a personal message).

* delivery charge will be added based on location.

Instead of fixating on the bitter frost and crippling seasonal depression, though, we’ve tried doing things that make us feel productive and hopeful.

Many good things are in the works, but perhaps the most obvious manifestation so far has been the creation of ‘BRAIN HANDS’, our recent collaboration with the prolific beer disciples over at Tired Hands Brewing Company.

What, pray tell, is does it taste like? As described by the Tired Hands menu: “Brain Hands is a pizza-inspired Gose. 5.5%. This sour ale was brewed in collaboration with the weirdos from Pizza Brain. Brewed with Meyer lemons, sweet basil, Pizza Brain’s five-pepper blend, and sea salt that was smoked in-house over maple wood and polenta corn cobs from Tom Culton. This is a food beer. Notes of bright citrus, floral basil, earthy spice, tingly heat, and collaboration.

We’re really pleased with how it turned out! It seems a good cross section of the beer-loving public feels the same way. Everybody’s happy.

It’s no wonder that worldwide beer enthusiasts Rate Beer just gave Tired Hands a bunch of really nice awards, one of which was the prestigious title of top 100 breweries in the world.

Needless to say, we’re ecstatic to have found such common ground between each other, and look forward to seeing this chemistry flourish in many more projects to come.

Stay cool, everybody. Spring will be here soon enough (we hope).

Over yonder on the facebooks is an invite to our pizza birthday bash. You should come.

Among a bevy of free, fun things like haircuts, face-painting, fire-breathing, and beer both Friday and Saturday nights, we’ve somehow managed to book Lisa A. Sturz (aka the puppeteer who operated ‘Splinter’ in the TMNT movie series) to come hang with us in our backyard on Saturday night.

Yes, Lisa A. Sturz, the talented puppeteer behind such magical films as Howard the Duck, Little Shop of Horrors, Robocop 2, and yes, the TMNT movie series, will be appearing live and in person to pizza party with us!

And to top it off, gear wizard Brittney Schneck will be parking her one-of-a-kind, custom built TMNT party van in front of our shop Friday night and Saturday afternoon, just in case you’d like to touch it for a second.

There’s never been a more appropriate time to say it, so we’re going to.

COWABUNGA!

XOXO, TEAM PIZZA BRAIN

Who knows, it might just change the face of pizza, donuts and chicken forever. You can read about some of the details over on Zagat Philly’s blog. Then, just wait patiently until next Friday where we’ll serve up hot slices of the new stuff until we run out.

The fact that two burgeoning food establishments in Philadelphia have decided to stretch their collective arms across the city and unite over something as awesome as a chicken/donut/pizza creation gives us hope for today, and strength for tomorrow’s food future. Who knows what unspeakable treasures it may hold…

XOXO, TEAM PIZZA BRAIN

Approximately 2.8 million grandmothers and stay-at-home moms watch it every week.

We’re honored to have been featured on such a show. Even more so, we’re flummoxed that so many new Pizza Brain fans have been made as a result. From what we gather, the series borrows heavily from another ABC show called ‘The View‘, except there’s considerably less Barbara Walters on it and the main topic of discussion is ‘food’ and ‘shoes’ instead of ‘Will Smith’ and ‘shoes’. Watch the full special below – and be sure to note that Mario Batali officially thinks our pizza would pair well with cold beer. Thanks, MB!

*Disclaimer: that unattractive, sad studio pizza at the end was in no way, shape or form made by us. We’ve got standards to uphold, people!

Today, we’re celebrating the fact that Citysearch recently named us Philadelphia’s ‘Best New Restaurant of 2013‘!

How a 6 month old pizzeria with only 6 tables and 12 menu items pulled this off is nearly incomprehensible. We’re shocked. We’re emotional. We’re grateful.

We think it had something to do with all our wonderful, wonderful customers.

With the utmost sincerity – thank you, Pizzadelphia. Definitely one for the ol’ scrap book.

In the article, two Philly pizza establishments are named. One of them happens to be our wonderful friends over at Nomad Pizza. The other is a place in Fishtown/East Kensington that opened 5 months ago – with 6 tables and a 12 pie menu…

Yes – a place called Pizza Brain!

As recently as 5 years ago, one would be hard pressed to see Philly anywhere on a list like this – let alone in the top 5. To be called out by name in one of the world’s best read travel magazines is astounding to us. Once our eyes stop hurting, we’ll definitely go out and celebrate.

Here’s to being a part of Philly’s ever-burgeoning food, art and pizza scene!

This week, Metro Philly included us on their ‘Best of 2012: Food & Drink’ list. The category? ‘Best Job Living Up To The Hype’.

“Considering the amount of buzz Pizza Brain’s “pizza museum” generated, the actual pies had a lot to live up to. But somehow, the inventive thin-crust slices are the actual stars at this charming Fishtown parlor whose phone greeting — “Congratulations! You’ve just called Pizza Brain!” — seems totally warranted.”

We’re flattered, honored and excited to be a part Philly’s food & drink conversation. To end 2012 in such a way is, needless to say, encouraging. Here’s to the adventurous new year that lies ahead!

XOXO, TEAM PIZZA BRAIN

In this December’s issue of Philadelphia Magazine, the cover story reads, ‘Why We Love Philly: The traditions, oddities, foods, sounds, landmarks and characters that make us deliriously happy to call this place our own.‘  The issue then proceeds to list the Philly 76.

We’re pleased to announce that we made it onto said list, right at no. 64.

“A city is characterized by its people—its celebrities and politicians, its businessfolk and proletarian masses. And also by its weirdos: the freaks, the iconoclasts, those who rise above the daily clamor simply by the volume of their crazy…”

To be officially grouped into the weirdos, freaks, iconoclasts category by Philly’s no. 1 magazine is a huge honor – and to be ranked higher than ‘rowhomes’ and the ‘Broad Street Run’? Dang. Finally. Take that, rowhomes!

“…you’ve got the set for a sitcom that could only happen on the border where Kensington meets Fishtown.”

In a very exciting turn of events, our thee-month-old business just got a big write up from Philly food maharishi Craig Laban in last Sunday’s Philadelphia Inquirer. Craig awarded us a very positive ‘TWO BELLS – VERY GOOD‘, while also giving huge nods to our best buddies and neighbors Little Baby’s Ice Cream,

To receive this type of introduction to the Philadelphia food elite, and at such an early stage in the game, is humbling to say the least. The positive observations and constructive feedback are more than welcomed. Here’s to building off it and continuing to refine our process as we grow.

But even so, we are very sincerely all of those things. Isaiah began work in the backyard after a simple proposition was put forth, and some pizza and ice cream was eaten. Within just a week or so, some beautiful things started to happen.

Every so often, a journalist comes along and writes an article that completely restores our faith in the medium of writing; like a bright ray of light through a cloudy sky – sort of light Mary Poppins. Recently, writer and art brain Steph Mantis wrote an article for the Museum of Art & Design blog in New York about our grand opening this past September. We highly suggest you read it, and take note of what it feels like to read an article by someone who is actually experiences something firsthand.

It’s rather refreshing to see, compared to the cut-and-paste writing that so many journalists phone-in these days. A shame, truly – but all the more refreshing when the opposite happens.

In a shocking turn of events, jeopardy tweeted about us for their ‘question of the day’ on Wednesday. yep. jeopardy.

So just how many levels are we from the almighty Trebek? Who knows. Maybe like 1. Unless a monkey robot runs the jeopardy twitter account – then it’s about 3. Either way, we can now call it quits from the pizza museum/restaurant game and die happy. Yo trivial pursuit – where youse at?!

The good people over at CBS This Morning hung out with us a few weeks ago in East Kensington. The result? This beautifully crafted 4 minute feature on our pizza shop/museum. Every channel 3 in the country aired it this past week, so we thought we’d give you a chance to watch it, too.

Next stop, the moon! xoxo, team pizza brain
