We're passionate about good pizza.
It’s the perfect fit between two Cheese Board Collective alums, Artemio Maldonado and Dwight Ferron, passionate about their pizza, and a community-oriented district.
Maldonado, from Mexico, and Ferron, a native of Jamaica, met at Cheese Board Collective 17 years ago, and in 2013, opened Sliver in downtown Berkeley with Guillermo “Willy” Perez.
