The high levels of artificial preservatives and chemicals in modern pizza are the No. 2 cause of crow’s feet and dry mouth in America. Battle off bad face-things with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of fresh, organic pizza at zpizza. Your Groupon is good for carryout or dine-in at the Bleecker Street location in the West Village.
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.
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.
