Philadelphia, PA – This Fishtown pizzeria houses the world’s first and only pizza museum, filled with anything and everything pizza-related. The collection ranges from pizza-themed toys and comic books to records all about cheesy and saucy pies.
Situated a few of miles down from the Rocky steps in Philadelphia, people descend on Pizza Brain for their award-winning pizzas and stay for the always-changing gallery highlighting the all types of pizza memorabilia.The brick-oven pies are as quirky as their home, with names like Forbes Waggensense and Felix Huppert.
so, lets talk about the pizza, first we tried the "Lucy Waggle" which came out with pine nuts, Grana Padano, fresh thyme, sweet dates, mozzarella, crisped prosciutto, and arugula. The salty ham ended up being fantastic alongside the fresh arugula. Next, we tried the "Jane" a plain slice, featuring mozzarella, aged provolone, Grana Padano and fresh basil. This slice is simple, featuring a perfectly seasoned sauce and nutty flavored cheese.
So just how did all this get started! Pizza Brain’s conception began when a number of friends decided to throw an art show commemorating America’s culture of pizza. One year in the future, co-founder Brian Dwyer had attained a spot in the Guinness Book of World Records for collecting 561 pizza merchandise.Lucky for all pizza fans, his restaurant doubles as the world’s first pizza museum, complete with pizza-related vinyl records and pizza-bearing action figures, from Homer Simpson to Spider-Man.
