Homey atmosphere like visiting a cool friend's pad! Unique young people atmosphere. Being that I am in my 50's I felt a little out of place. But the pizza was the best I have had anywhere in Johnson City! Can't wait to go back! I suggest everyone go there. Bring your own beer and even sodas!

This place allow you to craft your own pizza. You select the ingredients, toppings and sauces. The end product is your own creation. The toppings may also be not your typical pepperoni and other common pizza ingredients. You may choose apples, oranges, spinach and many other tasty ingredients. When you receive your pizza they also include a few dry red... More

Nice place. Ordering is done on paper. However I suggest the "trust" pizza. The cooks will put whatever toppings they want on it which usually includes some sort of fruit which actually has been great each and every time. Bring your own Beer or wine. Coolers are ok as well. Play a record on the player as well. Lots of... More

Eclectic and funky; you can spin your choice of tunes, but this is a BYOB establishment. When its busy, parking can be difficult/confusing (just a warning). The staff is very friendly and enthusiastic about their product. Really interested in something different? Order a "trust" pizza and they will make something for you. Not so gutsy? (Neither am I) Try a... More

You order your pizza when you come in the door. Inside they have a mixed arrangement of tables and chairs. Don't expect everything to match. They do not sell beer but you can bring your own inside. The crust is made from scratch and the pizza is cooked in a wood fired oven. They have many toppings to choose from... More

We and another couple decided to try Scratch. It's been through several incarnations and has ended up for now as a pizza place. One enters the main entrance and is faced with a wide choice of pizzas and limited sandwich options. We chose a cheesy appetizer with dips: pesto (very oily), a mild chunky red sauce and maybe herd butter... More

My husband and I were in Johnson City for one night and we wanted to find a pizza restaurant. This came up on our searches as a great place and it did not disappoint. They have many options for pizza and we decided to go with the trust option. This gives the pizza maker the option to add anything to... More

Excellent pizza and helpful/accommodating staff. Ordering is similar set-up to Which Wich. You fill-out an order sheet on a clipboard. Reasonable prices. Interesting soda selection in glass bottles (Cheerwine, Diet Cheerwine, Orange Nehi,...). One small negative (for me, anyway) -- no Diet Coke. Next time I go, it'll be BYODC (Bring Your Own Diet Coke).

I ordered carry out from Scratch, and my family and I thoroughly enjoyed their pizza! The pizza dough has a unique, wood fired, brick oven flavor that is sure to impress any pizza lover. The toppings they are offer are different from the "normal" pizza joint and are primarily veggie options, but good nonetheless. Scratch Pizza offers a nice alternative... More
