Once upon a time, in 1930, our grandfather would immigrate to America, open a storefront bakery, and bake fresh and delicious old-world breads for his new-found Brooklyn neighbors. He would call his bakery Damascus Bakery, in homage to his motherland.
Today, now a few generations later, our family pays homage to our Brooklyn roots with our newborn brand name: BROOKLYN BRED® SINCE 1930. And why not? These days Brooklyn is the name to be, the place to be, and for those with the guts, the way to be! Just one bite into our edgy, award- winning Brooklyn Bred® Bistro Breads and you’ll get a real taste of generations of baking still at work. Hey, who knows bread like a Brooklynite, right?
We love baking for our Brooklyn Community, and for your community, too. Every day, every loaf is an opportunity for us to bake authentic- and truly outspoken—BRED that reaches out—and speaks out—to all, no doubt with a Brooklyn Accent!
For the entire story of Damascus Bakery, Bred in Brooklyn Since 1930
Bred in Brooklyn, we know that the success of every pizza begins -and finishes- with the crust. That’s why we formulate, ferment and hearth-bake our thin, lite crusts with that lesson in mind. That’s what gives them their unique bubbly personality and of course, the famous “Brooklyn Bite”.
Naturally fermented and outspoken on the outside, soft and savory inside—just like a real Brooklynite! 100 delicious—and wholesome—calories open to your hearty imagination. Breakfast, lunch, dinner, even dessert.

Extra Crisp: Pre-bake crust and oil for 3-5 minutes; add toppings, bake for an additional 5-10 minutes.
Grilling is an easy and delicious method for preparing Brooklyn Bred Pizza Crusts if you follow a few simple tips:
Use a charcoal or gas grill set on medium or medium-high settings.
Lightly brush both sides of Brooklyn Bred Crust with olive oil.
Grill crust top down on a covered grill for approximately 2 minutes.
Turn crust over and top lightly with desired pizza toppings and cheese.
Cook pizza on covered grill until desired doneness, toppings are warmed and cheese is melted. Grill a little longer if you desire a crispier crust.
When grilling pizza crusts, please do not leave them unattended as grills vary in temperature.

WORD ON THE STREET IS
Just tried your pre-made pizza crust tonight and it is legit, AH-MAZZZING! Kudos to you guys, and I will definitely keep buying!!
I am originally from NYC and now reside in PA. I stumbled upon your pizza crusts by accident and just wanted to tell you that your product is phenomenal!
It is the closest I have had to my mother’s homemade pizza which I had never been able ever replicate before. Thank you and please keep it coming!
I’m really picky when it comes to cooking so I was doubtful before trying your crusts. That being said, I was very impressed with the pizza crust. I made a buffalo chicken pizza and it was really delicious. Thank you for selling such a great product. I will purchase again, and tell all in my circle of friends and family to try your products!
I don’t write to companies very often, but after I used your pizza crust to make pizza tonight, I had to tell you how great your product is. I baked both pizzas on a pizza stone in a 500 degree oven for 10 minutes, and the result was restaurant worthy! Keep stocking them at my Wegmans!
Born in the Bronx, I carried on my father’s tradition Friday night homemade pizza. I have been making my own pizza crust for over forty years. Then I found your product. Who said you can’t teach an old dog new tricks. Even my 86 year old mother had something to say about my “new and improved” pizza, commenting that “after 40 years I got it right!”.
Just recently discovered your pizza crust at Jewel in Chicago. LOVE it. It also makes a great grilled cheese panini.
I recently purchased Brooklyn Bred Bistro Buns for the first time. OH MY GOD, Heavenly! And at 100 calories, I can make them part of my healthy diet. They are a guilt-free indulgence for me.
