Pizza is Love

I have been to other pizza places, especially chains that strive for the pizza is love movement and I can tell you this place achieves it. From the moment you see this restaurant you know it is different. It has this hippie, anti establishment vibe that is evident from their menu that states they... read more

Great pie. I love their house smoked pepperoni. They have the option of a "trust pizza" where they pick the ingredients and just serve it to you.....I think this is their attempt to see which pizza maker can come up with the oddest combo of toppings that they don't have to eat. Haha. It take a long time, but it's... More

Simply the best pizza I have ever had. Hands down. A work of art from people that care. I will return time and time again.

Don't even come here if all you want is pepperoni, you HAVE to do the trust pizza (the pizza that is made by the pizza artisans). I kid you not, they will make the most delish pizza of all time! I get this every time and have NEVER, I REPEAT, NEVER been disappointed. Be prepared to pay a bit more,... More

I was there today and had been told how great it was, I went with the pepperoni, sausage, mushroom and red peppers. It is a little funky place in Johnson City, the staff is good they like to talk and make you feel at home. I will say though I think Marcos is better. I had three different people try... More

A haven for the indecisive, their novel ordering method gives control to the genius chefs, who without fail, deliver the most delicious thing you can put into your mouth.

Scratch brick Oven Pizza is a retaurant from another Era. Leave your iPhone in the car and when you walk in, you'll feel like you've gone back 35 years. Simple menu, simple ordering, eat at your table out of the box. Record player in the middle of the restaurant with a record collection- pick one out to listen to or... More

I've travelled to 11 different countries this year, and I still always say, "Scratch Pizza is the best pizza in the world." They personally cure their own meat, use local produce, and have homemade dough. I've visited this place numerous times, and always get excited about the pizza there. You can bring in your own drinks and choose a record... More

Mind you, I only had a pizza, nothing gluten free, no Sammies, nothing stuffed. Once you figure out how to order (they'll help) you'll find real brick oven pizza with numerous possibilities. As a transplanted New Yorker, I've eaten many of the best thin crust pizzas anywhere. I kept it simple, a 16" pie, French crust, red sauce, cheese, sliced... More
