Discovered in 1953, pizza is the only food to have been eaten on the moon, blessed by a pope, and endorsed by Olympic marathoner Gezahegne Abera—the "triple crown" of food honors. With today's Groupon, $10 gets you $20 worth of dine-in or carryout pies and more at zpizza. The eco-friendly eatery satisfies culinary cravings conscientiously, with MSG-free meats and green-minded practices.
Inspired by their physically and socially active California origins, the pies at zpizza start out with an entirely organic, whole-wheat-flour base, hand-thrown daily and fire-baked until crisp. Zpizza creations include the Napoli (basted with homemade roasted-garlic sauce, mozzarella, tomato slices, parmesan, and fresh basil), Greek (feta, red onions, firm kalamata olives, tomatoes, oregano, and mozzarella), and Thai (splashed with peanut sauce and dressed with mozzarella, spicy chicken, red onions, cilantro, carrots, crisp bean sprouts, and Serrano chilies). Depending on the location, prices and menu options vary. Not including tax, specialty pizza creations can start at around $10 for 10", $17 for 14", and $20 for 18". Classic consumers can opt for the standard cheese ($17.50 for 18") or pepperoni ($19.50 for 18"), or create their own pie. zpizza's menu includes salads ($5.95–$8.95 for regular salads), calzones ($6.95), and pasta dishes ($7.50). An assortment of cookies rounds out the sweet side.
With organic sauce and flour, as well as gluten-free and vegan options, zpizza's pies contain significantly fewer calories and grams of fat than slices of pizza from other popular vendors. Eight pizzas and four featured salads can be altered to accommodate vegan diners. From fresh-baked crusts to crisp, exotic produce (cremini and shiitake mushrooms, roasted eggplant, truffle oil, pine nuts), the good-for-you grub is a fit alternative to traditional recipes.
