Derrick Tung, owner and operator of Paulie Gee's Logan Square, started out by learning how to make pizza at home through YouTube tutorials and discussions. After a few years of working at different pizzerias to learn restaurant operations and pizza techniques, and many road trips to visit some of the top 100 pizzerias in the US (and some international trips as well), Derrick fell in love with woodfired pizza and Detroit style, both which he incorporated into his menu at the restaurant. As a firm believer in honoring tradition but evolving forward, he is constantly seeking new and interesting pizza experiences based on non-traditional ingredients.
