In a town where outgreening your neighbor is key, pizza’s tricky. Brag about composting since Reagan’s first term all you want. Once someone spots the “Avoid the Noid” magnet on your fridge, you’ll be outed for the resource-hogging, pizza-delivery junkie that you are. Good news, closet pie fans. Two new earth-friendly joints, Pizza Fusion and ’Zaw, dish fresh ways to keep the sofa-based suppers coming—and your eco-cred intact.

 

Pizza Fusion

1412 12th Ave, Capitol Hill, 206-709-8400; www.pizzafusion.com

Why you’ll congratulate yourself for eating it

  • No mystery meats here—75 percent of ingredients are organic and the rest are local. Finally, you can invite that cute PETA girl from yoga class over for dinner.

Intensely environmentally conscious gesture

  • Dual-flush toilets and biodegradable “SpudWare” utensils crafted from potatoes.

Bromance beginnings

  • Co-owner Vaughan Lazar led the lonely life of an organic-food-loving Floridian before reconnecting with college bud Mike Gordon to launch their “community-focused” chain.

What your neighbors will see roll up to your curb

  • A Toyota Prius be-logoed with the declaration: “Fresh, organic, earth-friendly.”
     

’Zaw

1424 E Pine St, Capitol Hill, 206-325-5528.
434 Yale Ave N, South Lake Union, 206-623-0299.
5458 Leary Ave NW, Ballard, 206-297-1334; www.zaw.com

Why you’ll congratulate yourself for eating it

  • Kitchen staff assembles the Italian-style organic pizzas but you cook ’em at home and proclaim yourself a foodie for piloting your oven.

Intensely environmentally conscious gesture

  • “Green Wall” of herbs that doubles as an air purification system, all Little Shop of Horrors-like.

Bromance beginnings

  • Owners Greg Scott and Greg Waring met at college in BC, then both moved to Seattle and bonded anew over sustainable eats.

What your neighbors will see roll up to your curb

  • A bicycle-mounted delivery man with the kind of creative facial hair that says: “I would give my life to save a redwood.”
