Cheeseboard Pizza Collective is a worker owned collective of 12 people who served a different pizza each day. It is located in North Berkeley’s Gourmet Ghetto. They also serve a single type of salad. Cash or check only. There can be a line around the block at peak times. It is located next door to the Cheese Board Collective, which sells excellent cheese, bread, cookies, muffins, etc. Our last visit was at the end of 2010.
Decor, Vibe – Cheeseboard has a clean modern place with live music much of the time. Some seating inside and outside. Lots of typical Berkeley-ites including students.

Red Bell Pepper, Onions, Kalamata Olive pizza
Red Bell Pepper, Onions, Kalamata Olive, Mozzarella Cheese, Feta Cheese, Garlic Olive Oil, Italian Parsley Pizza ($2.50 slice, $20 entire pie) – This was the pizza of the day. It had crunchy sourdough like crust over half of a slice, while the rest was chewy and not soggy or burnt. Cheese was high quality and very good. This is one heavy pizza even though it had no meat and was not thick crust. Very Good stuff. We did not miss meat when eating this pizza. On another visit we had Roasted potatoes, caramelized onions, mozzarella & Gruyere cheese, garlic olive oil, Italian parsley.
Cheese board has very good pizza and an interesting venue. It could only occur in Berkeley. The bakery next door is great. Lots of fresh bakery items. We would come back if we were in the area.
