Culaccino in Downtown Franklin, TN—A Great Neapolitan Pie Comes to Town

Mrs. Pie and I have lived in Franktown for over 20 years and have always loved our quaint historic downtown.

R.I.P.—Franklin TN’s Pizza & Cream

Some half-dozen years ago or so, a pizza joint named Pizza & Cream opened in a strip center off Highway 96/Murfreesboro Road in my hometown of Franklin.

Nashville Pizza Company–Not in Nashville and Not Very Classic

Looking for more local pizza places to pick on, I decided to go back to a place I hadn’t visited in several years: Nashville Pizza Company. NPC currently operates two places in Franklin, but does not actually have a spot in the Music City. So let’s face it, why didn’t they call it the Franklin […]
