Not all slices are created equal

I will only purchase pizza from the two places that are run by locals who I know and love.

At last count, there are three pizzerias on Vashon. Two of them are owned and operated by people who grew up on the island. The third owner I have not met. The night they opened, I was quickly denied entry by an intimidating person who was guarding a private party in the restaurant that I didn’t know was taking place. Since then, I haven’t been back, and I’ve made a promise to myself that I will only purchase pizza from the two places that are run by locals who I know and love.

The way I look at it is that if you want New York-style pizza, move to New York, please! You know where the ferry docks are.

I grew up here and the gentrification of Vashon is a sad statement of today’s society as a whole.
