Pizza Wars, West Roxbury Style

Pizza wars continue, proclaims our local Bulletin. Now, pizza wars suggests several dramatic scenes:

  • Trouble at Chuck E. Cheese’s, as reported in the WSJ article that destroyed any last shred of interest I might have had in finding a local CEC’s.
  • A mob movie starring Robert De Niro (Mean Cheese?) in which rival pizza-connected gangs fight it out.
  • A video game in which you must gather topping, put them on pizzas, bake the pizzas, then hurl them at foes as if you were some saucy ninja.

No. In West Roxbury, pizza wars means that Upper Crust Pizzeria wants to come to West Roxbury, and some of the eight or so pizza places on Centre Street already plan to take action. They will… show up at the meeting of the Neighborhood Council!

I can’t claim that things are much more dramatic here in neighboring Roslindale. And I’m not sure I’d want them to be.
