    After working and eating his way through Minneapolis, Chris Moran returned home to the Brainerd Lakes Area with a mission: to share what he had learned about fresh, simple ingredients and good, real food with his hometown. With seven years in the Twin Cities, and a couple trips to San Francisco to perfect his dough recipe, with lessons learned and pizzas consumed, Chris returns with a knowledge of the power for fresh, from-scratch, high-quality foods. And so, Boomer Pizza was born.

    Chris now brings you an independently owned restaurant which is definitely not a franchise: a space where granny, the guys from the shop, and your girlfriends can all share a smile over a gooey slice. Just as Boomer Pizza represents a homecoming for Chris, each time our guests step through the door, whether it’s your first or your five-hundredth (though we hope it’s the latter), it should feel like coming home. Never pretentious, always delicious, our pizzas are sure to please even the pickiest of crowds.
