About this Business
From Our Editors
Taylor Maia grew up in a small town in central Brazil, but moved to San Francisco to follow his dream: opening a pizzeria. Together with Gina Gochez, he soon founded Pizza Orgasmica & Brewing Co, an enterprise that has since spread to five locations throughout the San Francisco area. At each, these childhood friends fuse their passion for pizza and the cuisine of their native land, blending Brazilian and Italian ingredients into colorful specialty pizzas with names such as Latin Lover, Girl from Ipanema, and Hot Mama. They also give diners creative free rein, helping them create their own using more than 50 toppings and the local library's thesaurus. At the San Rafael location, traditional Brazilian dishes such as stews and rice platters represent the flavors of the founders' childhood. Accompanying all of these dishes are Pizza Orgasmica & Brewing Co's 10 house-brewed beers, which range from a light kolsch to a hearty porter.
