New in Town: Jason Mikell visits Boom Pizza

Whether you prefer a red pie over a white pie, or a snack as oppose to a salad, plenty of things are booming at the corner of Detroit Avenue and Warren Road.

LAKEWOOD, Ohio — At the corner of Detroit and Warren in the Lakewood area west of downtown Cleveland, there's a whole lot of goodness being served up at this new pizza kitchen.

"Pizzas are killer man. We're going for it. Best Pizza in Cleveland!" says Ben Bebenroth, one of the owners of the restaurant. 

Thought to be the best part of Boom's pizzas, Bebenroth says it took roughly 2 years to come up with the perfect dough alongside his partner Jonathan Bennett. One of the key signatures of the pies, is the idea of putting sauces on top of the cheese. 

"It's a wonderful flavor" says Bebenroth. 

Mikell tries out his culinary technique as he and Bebenroth make up one of their signature pies, the Hot Stuff + Pepps. A red pie perfectly created with pepperoni, calabrian chilies, hot honey, shaved garlic, basil, and oregano. 

Interestingly enough, everything from temperature, to placement of cheese, meats, serving, and boxing is all unique to that of the Boom's Pizza business model.  

"Here's another piece of science, our pizza needs to stem off. We know that there's still moisture leaving this crust, so we serve on these trays and these dimples allow it to sit up here and then you'll have condensation between all these dimples underneath, but you'll still have a crispy pizza crust." 

An ideal marriage between pizza making and the meteorology world. Beginning in May, Boom's will be adding their own Hawaiian 5-0 and BBQ chicken sausage pizza, along with new cocktails, and a house sangria. 

Whether you're looking to get on out of the house and cheese the day, or be a weirdough and stay in, you will not regret biting into a slice of the action...after all, it's the yeast you can do.
