Owner: Boulder Creek Pizza and Pub
Justin opened Boulder Creek Pizza & Pub in 2012 and became involved with the BCBA shortly after. Justin was born and raised in the San Lorenzo Valley. He is extremely grateful for the kind and encouraging community who have supported him with his business and BCBA endeavors. Justin’s restaurant was given the county’s first off-site garden permit, and focuses on fresh, high-quality food. His restaurant dining room provides a hangout for families and friends to take a break from the world and enjoy a relaxing meal out. When he is not making pizza, you’ll find him playing in the garden, riding mountain bikes at Wilder Ranch or hiking in Henry Cowell with his pups.
