Meet Paulie Gee, the new owner and pizza maker of Paulie Gee’s pizzeria in Greenpoint, Brooklyn. I wanted to share Paulie’s story because I find it inspiring that at any moment in time you can make your dreams happen…even at the age of 56. For Paulie, making pizza is the perfect retirement plan, an achievement “beyond his wildest dreams” – and I hope you enjoy discovering why.

To get your pizza-craving hands on Paulie Gee’s uber-delicious, secretly sauced brick-oven pie, you can visit his website pauliegee.com
