Two Boots supporting Ukraine with 2 new pizzas, including the Mr. Ze

Two Boots Pizza has partnered with Razom for Ukraine to help support the war-torn country. 

The pizzeria, which has long named their special pies (see The Dude, the CBGB or Larry Tate), unveiled Mr. Ze after Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelenskyy, and the Lesya, for the Ukrainian writer-activist Lesya Ukrainka

Each pizza includes key ingredients from two longtime Ukrainian businesses in the East Village. Mr. Ze has kielbasa from East Village Meat Market, while the Lesya has borscht from Veselka.
All proceeds from the sales of these pizzas will go to Razom for Ukraine, a nonprofit that supports the residents and culture of that country. 

The special pizzas are available at the EV location, 42 Avenue A at Third Street, and the West Village outpost, 101 Seventh Ave. S. 

At the Avenue A shop yesterday, EVG contributor Stacie Joy caught up with Two Boots staffers Antoline Lopez and Willicia Thomas with a Mr. Ze...
Two Boots also donated food for the Stand With Ukraine Community Concert at the Ukrainian National Home on Second Avenue this past Saturday.

Good for Two Boots and how about throwing a Ukraine support pizza party with poetry and art ? One of the things I miss about getting gentrified out of the neighborhood is Two Boots fantastic pizza. Other pizza joints in NYC ship nationally and I wish Two Boots did too.
