It was always a stretch to call him merely a delivery guy — as co-franchisee, pizza baker, and sometime-delivery guy, he was a jack of all trades at his Big Mama’s and Papa’s — but now Edgar Martirosyan, the man who famously fed Brad Pitt, has his own pizzeria, a place called Wood in L.A.’s Silverlake. He and his brother dreamed of running their own joint, so his newfound celebrity and the world’s best-ever delivery tip were probably a pretty good nudge. Wanting to do it right, they even conducted Old World pizza-making R&D;, apparently sourcing an Italian mixer for their wood-fired Neapolitan pies like Margherita and lamb-and-mint. [LAT, Related]
