“Not For Everyone”


Scratch is a post-modern mom, pop, and standard-issue-store-kid business. It features components of a bakery, smokehouse, charcuterie, and wood-fired pizzeria. The whole affair is located below our home in a lovingly restored 1900 house in Johnson City, Tennessee’s historic North Roan Street District.

We do most of our cookery with wood in our massive, hand built (by us) 100 ton brick and riverstone oven. In the past, our crusty breads, peperone, capicola, sausages, smoked meats, sauces and desserts were made fresh in-house, by hand and with simple ingredients. Nowadays we have reduced the menu to cater to what people demanded the most, pizza! Each week we hand make all of our meats, sauces, doughs, and anything pizza related in order to provide you with the most delicious pizza you have ever tasted.

On April 1, 2015, SCRATCH celebrated its 9th “birthday.”  My, how things have changed over that time; but, evolution is natural.  We are still here, alive and well.  Thanks for all the support over the years folks!    -JW
