      I’m pretty sure that Brad is married, and males and females can be friends without being “interested” in each other

                          The thing that's funny is that sourdough pizza crust is a big thing here in the Bay Area and i adore it. Cheeseboard Pizza Collective = best pizza

                            Can someone explain what are the other people do in the background? Is that a real kitchen? Or they just photograph food for the magazine? I wish their marketing was more clear to people who are not familiar with New York lifestyle

                                              I recently experienced the horror that is a metal peel. FYI you guys were doing great and if you had a wooden peel everything would've been great.
