My advice: call in your pizza order (get the Trust), pick up some drinks on the drive over, get your pizza, sit outside at one of the picnic tables, and enjoy the best pizza you can order. Also, make sure you have good friends with you to enjoy!

Take a step out of the ordinary pizza and try Scratch! Choose your toppings and crust and enjoy! Down to earth place to try! You will not be disappointed!

One of my favorite places in Johnson City. The staff is great and the vibe of the restaurant is laid back and thrifty. If you're into music you can chose from their wide collection of records. As for the food, I always get their "trust" pizza, that comes with I believe ten toppings. You trust them to put the ingredients... More

I love the ambiance of the place. It's not fancy by any means, I mean the name of the place is SCRATCH. The pizza is good and there are so many featured pizzas. Wood fired pizzas are the best.

Family went there to dine. Good food, friendly people, just limited on space and especially parking. If it's busy you will have to walk a ways after finding a place to park.

Tried the pizza, it is different from anything else. The crust is expansive with a little toppings in the middle. If you like a lot of crust this place is for you.

If you're looking for a traditional pepperoni pizza this is not your place. The pizza here is unique and delicious. The toppings they use always surprise me. Order the Trust Pizza, where the staff decides what toppings to use. We haven't had a bad one yet! It takes some time for the pizza so relax and put a record on... More

We've been here numerous times. It's always delicious. We like the option to select your toppings. French crust with cranberry turkey is an excellent starting point. Apple slices and fresh tomatoes are great additions. Hundreds of albums to spin your own tunes. Come often and savor the crust.
