Pizza Brain Museum and Pizzeria
My daughter and I took a road trip to Philadelphia to go to the 9th St. Italian Market and also to visit the Pizza Brain Museum since it was supposed to be such a nice day. We left this morning about 9:00 am so we could look around 9th St. Italian Market first for awhile. I knew Pizza Brain wouldn’t be serving pizzas until 5:00 pm, and knew we wouldn’t be staying in Phila. that long, but Pizza Brain was supposed to open the Pizza Brain Museum at 11:00 am. When we got to the Pizza Brain Museum it had a sign on the door that said, Contrary to our posted hours below we will won’t be opening until 5:00 pm today, sorry for any inconvenience. I thought darn, but looked inside. I saw one man inside and decided to just take a few pictures outside. A lady walked inside the Pizza Brain Museum and I then decided to wave my hand to see if I could take a few pictures inside. The gentlemen were kind enough to let me take some pictures inside and even turned on the lights for me. The gentlemen told me I could come back at 5:00 pm when they opened and I told them I wouldn’t be in Phila. for that long.
I talked the man behind the pizza prep area and he was getting ingredients ready for the pizzas. I then talked to all of the guys that were inside Pizza Brain and they all sure a great bunch of guys and seemed like a lot of fun. They are aware of pizzamaking.com and said this forum helped them with their pizzas. They said Scott Weiner was there for Pizza Brain opening night.
I didn’t get a lot of pictures because I didn’t want to bother them too much. I thought what I saw was really interesting. I am sorry, but some of my pictures are blurry. I thought it was interesting how the floor had some cut-outs with pizza related things inside the cases in the floor.
I wished the guys at Pizza Brain the best of luck and said I will come back again when they are in full operation. I can’t wait to try their pizzas.
The pictures start with when we left 9th St. Italian Market. It only took about 15-20 minutes to get to Pizza Brain from the 9th St. Italian Market.
I also took some pictures when leaving Philadelphia of the building and of one glass building. It looked so neat with the clouds reflecting in the glass. I am not sure of what building that is.
Pizza Brain is a great place to visit!! :)
There are so many variables that go into making a PIZZA. The hydration of the dough, flour, yeast and many more.. Amounts of any kind of yeast in a pizza can make a big difference. Most recipes posted on the web, use too much yeast in their recipes. What I have found out so far, is either bulk fermenting the dough or cold fermenting the dough will give a better flavor in the crust. I am still experimenting to find different flavors in the crust of pies. In my opinion pizza is all about the best flavor you can achieve in a crust. I still am on the journey about flavors in the crust. Even differences in temperatures in you home or times of the year can influence how much yeast to use. If you want a pizza to develop flavors in the crust, there are many ways to go about achieving this.
