Seattle Becomes Pizza Neapolitan Mecca

According to, “Soon, Seattle will be known not just for needles, fish and coffee — but pizza.”

“One week from today, the Associazione Verace Pizza Napoletana (VPN) will visit Seattle to certify seven local restaurants — making Seattle the U.S. city with the greatest concentration of Neapolitan pizzerias. And they’re going to party. Along with the formal inspections and certifications, the visit will include a welcoming reception on the roof of the Space Needle, a fund-raiser, a public Q&A in South Seattle and a mayoral proclamation declaring next week ‘VPN week.,” the story said.
