What's that you say? Another pizza parlor coming to Fishtown?

The Art of Pizza is being prepped for a late-June debut at 431 E. Girard Ave., a few doors east of burger haven Sketch.

I'll have more details on this 22-seater as they unfold, but co-owner Christopher Maguire - who worked at Manayunk Brewing Co. for 10 years - promises brick-oven pies and upscale sandwiches (pork belly, brisket).

The twain shall meet, as he'll offer brisket and pork belly as pizza toppings, too.
