"Popular Brooklyn pizzeria Paulie Gee's will open a branch in Baltimore in 2013," according to Slice. "Paul Giannone, whose transformation from IT manager to renowned pizza-maker is well-documented on this site (among many other places), is partnering with Baltimore local "Pizzablogger" (who asked to remain anonymous), at what will be called Paulie Gee's Hampden. (You may know Pizzablogger from his posts and comments on Slice, from his presence on Pizzamaking.com, or from his summertime pop-up, Pizza Ruby, at the Baltimore Farmers Market.)
"I want to grow Paulie Gee's, but I don't want it to affect what I'm doing here in Greenpoint," Giannone said. "The best way I can expand and still do that is to help someone else."
