The dough doyens at Za Za Fine Salad & Wood Oven Pizza Co. draw from a menu of authentic Italian eats, sizzling up Napoli-style wood-fired pizza, mixing fresh salads with locally sourced ingredients, and crafting house-made gelato from scratch. Guests can kick off their evening of chewing, chatting, and cowabungaing over a Perella pizza slathered with goat cheese, prosciutto, and garlic atop a crust made with imported Italian low-gluten flour ($12), or the tangy barbecue shrimp pizza with scallions and wood-oven roasted shrimp ($12.50). Otherwise, delve into one of the dozen specialty salads, including the asian salad blended with chicken tenders, mandarin oranges, and wonton crisps ($9.25), or mount a one-sided staring contest with the chefs as they blend custom salads tableside ($5.25 + $0.50–$4/ingredient). A scoop of silky gelato, which is made fresh in-house every morning ($3.75 for a small), joyously arrives at tables to conclude hearty nosh fests.
Family-owned Le Star Pizzaria dishes up a menu of regular and thin-crust pizzas alongside traditional pastas and sub sandwiches. Ten specialty pies harbor distinctive combinations of more than a dozen savory toppings and seasonings, and housemade cakes and pies subdue stark, raving sweet teeth in fruit-based straightjackets. The pizza parlor hosts a weekday happy hour and provides discounts for active military and police personnel.
While the heart of Johnny Carino's menu is rooted in genuine Italian traditions, forward-thinking creativity has birthed what they like to call their signature dishes. Led by executive chef Chris Peitersen, the seasoned kitchen staff blends fresh ingredients along with extra time to create high-quality, spiced Italian preparations. Diners will find entrees such as 16-layer lasagna with made-from-scratch sauce, and pizzas made with home-baked crust. Other signature choices include the spicy shrimp and chicken, baked stuffed mushrooms topped with house lemon basil cream sauce, and tiramisu made from the ground up. Entrees can be paired any selection from Carino's extensive wine list and drink menu.
The menu at American Pie Pizza places classic pizza creations alongside delicious sandwich and snack options. Fire up your feast by surfing atop tortilla chips into a bowl of Robbi's Salsa (small $3.99, large $6.99) before making friends with one of the pizzeria's masterful pies. Patrons can create their own pizza, selecting an 8" ($4.29), a 10" ($7.99), or a 14" ($10.99) pie draped with mozzarella cheese and ready to be painted with your choice of toppings from 11 meats and 22 veggies ($.70–$1.10 each). For lunchers too lazy to craft their circular cuisine themselves, American Pie Pizza offers favorites such as the margherita ($6.29–$13.89), the beef-and-veggie bounty of the supreme ($6.99–$15.49), and the pork-packed Hog Wild Pizza ($7.59–$16.99). Gluten-free crusts are available on 10" pizzas for an additional $1. Say no to dough with a sandwich such as a meatball sub ($4.99–$7.79) or the American Club ($4.79–$7.59). Unlike the mythical clutch hitter, the "pizzookie" dessert, a chocolaty, peanut buttery creation topped with syrup and whipped cream ($6.99–$15.49), is as real as it is delicious.
