Four Corners Pizza in Pelham recently discovered unwanted pizza graffiti outside the eatery.
"We woke up to an unexpected graffiti artwork on our store, and while we appreciate the artistic talent, we want to make it clear that this is NOT okay," Four Corners Pizza wrote on Facebook.
In the past few weeks, at least seven Westchester County pizza places have been the target of the same graffiti.
