What You'll Get
The high levels of artificial preservatives and chemicals in modern pizza are the number-two cause of crow’s feet and dry mouth in America. Today's Groupon gets you $20 worth of fresh, organic pizza for $10 at zpizza, an oasis of natural, full-flavored pie in a wasteland of modern preservatives. Zpizza offers bubbly pizza that can be customized for vegans, vegetarians, the gluten-shy, and snooty gourmands. Handcrafted rusticas join hot and cold sandwiches, crisp salads, and pasta on a menu full of organic options.
Every pizza at zpizza is freshly prepared, hand thrown, gently coaxed into the oven using soft birdcalls and pheromone trails, and fire-baked to crispy perfection. The dough is prepared fresh daily from 100% certified-organic wheat flour, and z is also happy to offer gluten-free crusts at participating locations, sating the pizza desire of the allergic, dieters, and wheat sympathizers. Toppings include award-winning Wisconsin skim 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 pepper, red onion, tomato, cilantro, and sweet corn, usually $16.95) or a chicken curry and yam rustica (with mozzarella, curry chicken, yam, mango chutney, and cilantro, $8.95). Delight in a small Berkeley, a vegan-cheese veggie pizza (with veggie burger crumbles, zucchini, tomato, mushroom, red onion, and bell pepper, $10.50), or test-drive a mouthwatering Moroccan rustica (with pesto, mozzarella, roasted eggplant, feta cheese, caramelized onion, and pine nut, $8.95). Prices and offerings may vary slightly at each location.
Each bite of the unexpected and satisfying flavor combinations builds on the last, like a culinary crescendo that ends in gustatory harmony. These creative combinations are like an artfully prepared, soda-fountain-perusing suicide drink, except with roasted bell peppers and truffle oil instead of Mr. Pibb's and Faygo.

- This pizza reminds of Italy: thin crust, light, fresh toppings...The best is the pear and gorgonzola – so unique and tasty. The Arugula salad stands out. – MichaelB220580, Zagat
