“Not For Everyone”


Scratch is a post-modern mom, pop, and standard-issue-store-kid business.  We’ve been around for a bunch of years now and have experienced a lot of growing pains and evolution.  Featuring components of bakery, smokehouse, and charcuterie forged into a wood-fired pizzeria, the whole affair is located 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, 100-ton, brick and riverstone oven. In the “Before Time,” we specialized in crusty, sourdough hearth breads, experimental charcuterie, wild desserts like the infamous “Habanero Cheesecake,” and all things tasty and wonderful but always shifting. Nowadays, we are much more narrow in our offerings and have focused our efforts on channeling what we learned then into making the perfect pizza now. With house-cured meats like peperone (the old spelling) and capicola, homemade sauces and dough, it all comes together when it hits the 800+ degree heat of our Alan Scott designed brick oven, built, in Scratch-style, by our own hands.
