Often advertised as a “pizza museum,” Pizza Brain in Fishtown is the proud holder of the Guinness record for “the world’s largest collection of pizza-related items.” I was expected a museum-style format to the back of the restaurant, but really it is just a collection. The walls are covered with antique photos of people holding pizzas, records that feature songs related to pizza (Sesame Street’s “Pizza Box Dance,” among others), and well as pizza advertisements. I was surprised to learn that pizza didn’t come to mainstream America until the 1950s, considering it is a go-to staple today!

$4 seemed like a hefty price for by-the-slice, but once you see the 22-inch slices you will realize it is more than a good deal for a full meal. Their crust is thin and a little crispy – not my usual favorite – but considering the size, it is a good choice.

Overall, another great Fishtown find!
