The “pizza guy” is actually Edgar Martirosyan, who wasn’t just a delivery guy but also co-franchisee of Big Mama’s & Papa’s on Sunset Boulevard in Hollywood. Now, he and his brother Erik have finally opened the Neapolitan-style pizza joint they always dreamed of, the Los Angeles Times reports.
Called Wood, Martirosyan's pizzeria dishes out handcrafted Old World-style pizza “using local, organic and in-season ingredients within a warm, pleasant and trendy atmosphere,” according to the company website.
The brothers reportedly researched every aspect of pizza making and wanted to produce only authentic Italian pizza. ”We even have a mixer from Italy for the dough we make daily," Erik says. "We wanted the right ingredients, the right products -- all shipped from Italy," he told the LA Times.
Well, it seems like dreams really do come true for some….you can expect the based-on-a-true-story Hollywood epic any day now.
