Full Tilt Ice Cream proprietor Justin Cline first mentioned this in the WSB Forums but now we have confirmation: The new pizza place in the 16th SW business district of White Center, barely a block over the line from West Seattle, plans to open September 11th. Stefanie Albaeck and her husband Mike are opening Proletariat Pizza in the former bakery space across the street from Full Tilt. We interviewed them shortly after the first report of their plans last May, as published by our partner site White Center Now. Some have wondered about the name; Stefanie told us in May, with a smile, “It’s definitely a reflection of the neighborhood, the people we’re serving, and the people we are.” She and her husband, by the way, are West Seattleites – they moved to Highland Park six years ago. They told us they weren’t planning for their pizza to be any particular “style” – fresh ingredients, homemade recipes. More as their opening date gets closer.
