Brooklyn Bred Brooklyn A Borough of People A World of Stories

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!

Pizza Crusts

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”.




Neapolitan Thin Pizza Crusts

We bake our Brooklyn Bred® Thin Pizza Crusts with speciality “00” Pizza Flour and ferment them naturally so that you can enjoy an even thinner, lighter, hearth-baked bite–‘crispy on the outside, soft on the inside’.



Sicilian Thick Pizza Crust

Generations before the Detroit-style pizza, its Godfather—the Sicilian ‘Square”—was already a Brooklyn Hit! Donned with sauces, cheeses—and your imagination—the thick and crusty Sicilian is a pan-full meal that will settle all family business. Go ahead, take a shot.
