I've been to Pizza Brain now a few times. Everything about this place is unique. It's the world's first pizza museum and there is pizza memorabilia creatively displayed throughout the shop. It's just a really cool, inspiring place. The pizza is outstanding! Super fresh ingredients creatively combined and served on an amazing crust. This is definitely one of the finest pizza places in Philly. My faves are the Forbes Waggensense- hands down the greatest pepperoni slice I've had in a while- and the Charlie Mayfer. This is a seasonal pizza with sliced apples, sweet potatoes, brown sugar and pie spices. It wasn't too sweet, but it felt like a dessert pizza. The pies are made in a gas oven, but at a high heat so they sometimes come out charred. This is cool with me becuase this is more of a classic pizza taste. There is a difference between charred and burned. Charring actually brings out the taste of the tomato sauce. But I understand that it might not be for everybody so be sure to ask for a not so well-done pie if your taste buds are finicky. The service is super friendly. The staff seem to go out of their way to make you feel welcome. They don't have red pepper flakes or oregano. But trust me the pies have plenty of perfectly balanced seasoning. They really are serving gourmet meals on the pies. Bottomline- do not miss this spot if your are anywhere near Northern Liberties/Fishtown/East Kensington!
