Piper's Scratch Pizza Shop is a scratch pizza kitchen in the heart of Palm Harbor, FL. Cheap ingredients were not used to make your pizza, salad, or sub.

Pizza is our Passion - we look forward to serving the best pizza in Palm Harbor.


We Are A Bunch of Self-Proclaimed Pizza Snobs

Ok, to be honest, nobody here is Italian or from New York but we promise it will be worth it when you try your first bite. 

Our freshly made piping hot pizza is best when you dine in or pick it up.

We love talking pizza with customers. (Just not during a rush)

We always serve the freshest ingredients from our oven to your home with our hand-picked local produce, house-made sauce, dough, meatballs, chicken parm, dressing and so much more!

Pizza is best friends with beer… Our neighbors at House of Beer have over 50 taps to enjoy.

Thanks for supporting a locally owned pizzeria.

Pizza Is Our Passion

…it’s what we love to do.

Our pizza dough and sauce are made fresh daily.

And our produce is bought locally.

Your tummy and taste buds will thank you.

Most say our pizza is NY-style. We just say it’s made with LOVE.

We are a small but mighty pizzeria.

Slices are while supplies last.

Our Story

It all happened 29 years ago when we met in a local pizzeria while in high school. Bruce was making pizzas and Jennifer served guests and even jumped behind the line when needed. We then went off to college. Jen became a ZooKeeper/Vet Tech and Bruce became a Marketer. Our passion for fantastic pizza never stropped; we even made it at home to ensure we always had the best possible ingredients because every bite is just as important as the last one.  

In 2002, we had our daughter, Makenzie "Piper" Hershey, and that is when the Piper's Scratch Pizza Shop concept was born. No matter what jobs we had or where we traveled, pizza was always top of mind. Although not ready for the mass market at that time, we continued making homemade pizzas for ourselves, family, and friends. Everyone always wanted our pizza, which is when the wheels started to spin a little faster. We love to mix it up by coming up with some funky toppings from time to time, so be on the lookout for some pizzas that will make you scratch your head but will blow your mind. 

Fast forward to 2020, we looked at each other while Bruce was still a successful Chief Marketing Officer for some of the largest brands globally and said, "Hey if you can do this for all these other brands, why not do it for our own brand". So, we started to explore our options and decided to officially launch Piper's Scratch Pizza Shop to share our passion for quality pizza with the world.

We are looking forward to our journey with our customers as we expand into new markets.
