An oasis of natural, full-flavored pie in a wasteland of modern preservatives, zpizza offers bubbly pizza with options that are safe for vegans, vegetarians, and the gluten-shy. Every pizza at zpizza is freshly prepared, hand-thrown, and gently coaxed into the oven using soft bird calls and pheromone trails, and fire-baked to crispy perfection. The dough is prepared fresh daily from 100% certified-organic wheat flour, and zpizza is also happy to offer certified organic and gluten-free crusts, sating the pizza desire of the allergic, dieters, and wheat sympathizers. Toppings include part-skim rBGH-free mozzarella, MSG-free pepperoni, certified-organic tomato sauce, additive-free sausage, and fresh produce. Try a large ZBQ pizza with barbecue sauce, mozzarella, barbecue chicken, roasted peppers, red onions, tomatoes, cilantro, and sweet corn ($9.95–$20.95), or a chicken curry and yam rustica with mozzarella, curry chicken, yams, mango chutney, raisins, and cilantro ($8.95). Vegans can delight in a Berkeley, a soy-cheese veggie pizza with pesto, soy cheese, veggie burger crumbles, zucchini, tomatoes, mushrooms, red onions, and bell peppers ($10.50–$21.50), and traveling tongues can sate their wanderlust with a mouthwatering Moroccan rustica with pesto, mozzarella, roasted eggplant, feta cheese, caramelized onions, and pine nuts ($8.95). Prices vary from location to location, so there might be some small variation from what is listed above.
Bella Vita Pizzeria's menu is primarily divided among three things, two of which are brick-oven pizzas and paninis layered with fresh mozzarella and herbs. The third is pasta dishes—customers can choose from 13 entrees that include penne alla vodka and spinach ravioli with a fresh plum tomato sauce. Each entree can be ordered in individual or family sizes, the latter of which is ideal if you plan on finishing that cloning machine tonight.
Vibrant murals of an Italian countryside span the walls of Palermo Pizzeria & Restaurant, setting the scene for a dining experience inspired by the region. Lobster tails, grilled steaks, and piles of spaghetti populate plates atop linen tablecloths in the dining room, alongside crispy pizza crusts weighed down by plum tomatoes, Spanish olives, and blue cheese. A wood-hewn bar ensures wine glasses and mugs stay full throughout meals and its attached TV keeps patrons entertained.
