Z Pizza is a growing pizza franchise which is capturing the hearts of pizza-lovers who are looking for a healthier, fresh restaurant pizza.
Born in Laguna Beach, California, ZPizza is addressing the needs of health-conscious consumers by providing organic ingredients including 100% organic wheat flour in the crusts, natural, MSG-free and nitrate-free meats and all fresh ingredients.
But don’t mistake the healthy style as being high in nutritional value and low on good taste.
Z Pizza is growing for a reason.
Their pizzas come in a variety of tasty flavors and uncommon topping combinations to bring a fresh twist to an old classic food.
With more and more consumers looking for healthy and organic food options, this progressive pizza restaurant fits right in there.
Choose from over 10 carefully crafted pizza specialties such as the Provence (organic tomato sauce, homemade roasted garlic sauce, mozzarella, artichoke hearts, capers, tomatoes and fresh basil) or a Tuscan pizza (roasted garlic sauce, mozzarella, cremini, shitake and button mushrooms, caramelized onions, feta, truffle oil and thyme).
And let’s not forget about the Rustica pizzas. These pizzas are served up on a free form, crispy crust and are loaded with worldly flavors such as a Moroccan, Curry Chicken and Yam and Mediterranean.
And vegans and vegetarians, and gluten-free eaters can re joice with pizza options on this menu. The Berkeley Vegan pizza is made with fresh marinara sauce, vegan cheese, veggie burger crumbles, zucchini, tomatoes, mushrooms, red onions and bell peppers.
Don’t worry, you can also get the classic pepperoni, cheese, ham and pineapple or sausage pie (in case you’re not into the unique combos).
The menu also includes gourmet sandwiches, pasta and salads in case you aren’t in the mood for a pizza.
You may not lose flavor with these healthy pizzas, but you will lose some of the fat and calories that come in your standard pizza fare. You can have a slice from any of the ZPizza specialty pizzas and stay under 10 grams of fat and less than 200 calories.
Does that mean I can have two slices?
When you’re getting fresh, gourmet-style ingredients and organic-made crusts, you’re going to pay a little more. Depending on the location, a large pizza could run around $21.
Is the price worth it?
Of course that’s a matter of opinion. Z Pizza may not be a crowd-pleaser, or is it?
