What we ordered:My companion and I ordered two pizzas to share, the first was the Italian. This pizza started with a chewy hand-tossed crust made of 100% organic wheat then topped with basil pesto, mozzarella, ham, artichoke hearts, fresh tomatoes, and black olives. It is baked in the wood-fired oven. This was delicious! The crust was light and chewy, with the pesto slightly absorbed into it then covered with mozzarella. I was impressed by how many artichokes were piled on top, it really added great flavor to the pizza.
We also ordered a small Mexican pizza. This pizza had salsa, mozzarella, spicy lime chicken, green onions, red onions, fresh avocado, sour cream, cilantro. The salsa was hardly noticeable but all of the the other ingredients were fresh and plentiful. I really liked it but wish it was a little more spicy or had more salsa.
Service: ZPizza offers counter service. The staff working were really friendly and patient while we were trying to decide what to order. The pizzas took approximately 15-20 minutes.
