What qualifications does Pizza Brain have to back up its claim of being a pizza museum? For one, it has a certificate from Guinness World Records that nods to its large collection of pizza-related memorabilia, which includes vintage comics and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle figurines (those turtles do love their pizza). The kitchen slings out-there flavor combos with quirky names like the Bob Shieldsmoose, a brisket sandwich-like pie topped with blue cheese, mozzarella, and horseradish. There are simpler pizzas too, with names to match: the Tom is a cheese-less tomato pie, while the Jane comes with mozzarella, aged provolone, and grana padano.
