Wood Fired Pizza




Back in 2014 two friends met to discuss a future. That future was a brewery that the long road of life delayed because of high start-up costs and the messy world of commercial real estate.


These friends are now partners. Jeff Livingston has had his hands in the dough of some of the best pizza restaurants in the country. And Jason Hill, with more than 20 years of restaurant and hospitality experience, will make you feel like you're at grandma's kitchen.


Together, they bring the talent and smarts to the finest wood fired pizza in Michigan. Thus the dream was born, Hearth & Hops Wood Fired Pizza. The profits from the food truck will go toward a future brewery and hops farm.

Nothing is done alone. Thank you to the investors who believed in us to achieve this dream; Anne Hill, Faith and Dennis Mauro-Huse. Thank you to our partners, Growing Hope, who have been gracious enough to let us use their incubator kitchen in Downtown Ypsilanti. Thank you to Liz Moosekian who created our graphics and website. And last but not least, we would like to thank our friends and family who have supported us every step of the way.


- Jeff & Jason
