Review and Giveaway: zpizza

zpizza-logo-final-hrI don’t have to be told twice to go try a pizza place, that is for sure. Pizza has been my downfall for years. I can remember my first slice as if it was yesterday…a heavenly single pizza at the Metuchen Fair in NJ when I was about 7 years old. It was round, it was overflowing with sauce, it was yum.

The stars were aligned on Saturday night: I had a zpizza gift certificate burning a hole in my pocket AND we had not seen our friends Mike and Mary in forever. Saturday night found us at zpizza in Rockville, MD. 

The wood-burning oven attracted my attention first. zpizza is a simply furnished eat-in restaurant. zpizza offers delivery to locations close to its restaurants.  You can order online.

The secret to zpizza is all natural and unique ingredients: certified organic tomato sauce, certified organic wheat dough that is crafted daily, award-winning part-skim rBGH-free mozzarella, msg-free and nitrate-free sausage and meatballs, msg-free pepperoni, vegetables roasted in-house, gluten-free crust, and soy cheese. The website lists nutritional information about each item on the menu. 

My mouth was watering as I perused the menu. Pizza is the main offering, but the salads and sandwiches sounded wonderful. But, we were there for pizza — you have to have a game plan!

We decided to order 4 small pizzas. With 6 slices a piece, it was the perfect sharing opportunity. After a little negotiation…”no mushrooms,” “let’s try something different,” “anyone mind Greek pizza?”…we ordered. All 4 pizzas were yummy and very satisfying for 4 adults.

Let’s break it down…the pizzas are divided by category…we ordered a pepperoni from the Pizza Standards…loved it! The Greek pizza and the Santa Fe from the Pizza Creations were excellent. The Santa Fe chicken sausage was spicy and super yummy.  Our final selection was the Rustica Pizza Pear and Gorgonzola. This was the super delicious — I have never had pear on a pizza before. Same for gorgonzola. Tasty!
