ZPizza

About

zpizza was founded in the art colony of Laguna Beach, California, where creativity and craftsmanship have flourished for almost a century. So it comes as no surprise that their critically acclaimed pizza is a true Laguna original. A passion for great food is why they start with dough made from 100% organic wheat flour prepared fresh every day, hand-thrown and fire-baked until uniquely crisp. Their zest for quality continues when the toppings go on. They combine select ingredients using award-winning skim mozzarella from Wisconsin, certified organic tomato sauce, MSG-free pepperoni, additive-free sausage, and fresh produce. Their gourmet salads and sandwiches are just as delicious.

Review

​Unbeknownst to most, there’s an uprising in progression in the pizza market here in Dubai and over the last few months we have attended quite of a few of these newer pizza joints that have completely changed our perspective on what pizza is. If your exposure to pizza consists of the monopoly brands then you’re truly missing out on the evolution of the so called “fast food”, and zPizza plays quite the role here.

What would fly under most people’s radar is the fact how joints like zPizza have taken the initiative to identify the change in lifestyle of the Dubai residents. With more people now being conscious and adapting a healthier way of leading life, zPizza offers gluten free pizzas that keep the flavors locked in regardless, making it a win-win situation. Also, unlike most joints where salads are just there for the namesake that turn out to be extremely dry and joyless, zPizza may just have the best salads to offer than its competitors. As a pizza fanatic, zPizza just made my list of go to places for a slice or two of Italian goodness as it should yours. 

Ambiance

​For a fast food restaurant, the key here should be hygiene and cleanliness and zPizza was absolutely spotless. While the red walls and wooden tables are a strong indication of their product, it is also a great platform to show off their giant logo. The interiors are simplistic and engaging enough for a casual affair with friends and family.

Food

​Pear & Gorgonzola Salad:
Mixed greens, fresh pear, gorgonzola cheese, housemade roasted candied walnuts, with balsamic vinaigrette.

If salads were of such caliber everywhere, I don’t presume people would be as fussy about it. This was delightful through and through, and easily one of the top recommendations from our visit. The greens were fresh, the pear was sweet, the gorgonzola cheese only added to already lively salad. Oh! And the walnuts said hi as well. This is how salads should be done!
​Parmesan Flat Bread Sticks:
Baked pizza dough topped with garlic butter and parmesan cheese; served with housemade marinara sauce.

A solid starter with an even more solid sauce, that was tangy and zesty meshing well with the simplistic butter and cheese sticks. 
​California Veggie:
Organic tomato sauce, part-skim mozzarella, roma tomatoes, red onions, bell peppers, mushrooms, roasted zucchini, black olives.

Once again, there is nothing elaborate about such pizzas as it shouldn’t be. Tried and tested ingredients that are go to options for vegetarians, if that does the trick for you, zPizza gets the basics right. 
ZWings:
Skillet baked, all natural chicken wings hand tossed in buffalo hot sauce, served with a side of ranch dip.

The wings were super tasty and the flavors really came through. We tried all the flavors they offer and each one of them was, in one word, superb. Lovers of all things spicy will enjoy this one to the core.
Mexican:
​Housemade salsa mix, part-skim mozzarella, spicy lime chicken breast, red onions, sliced avocado, sour cream, green onions, cilantro.

This was hands down the best Pizza on our table. Not saying that the others were any bad but the Mexican version was top-notch.
ZCarnivore:
Housemade marinana, ​part-skim mozzarella, pepperoni, smoked beef ham, beef sausage, smoked bacon, fresh oregano.

On paper this sounded a clear winner. While not that bad, the taste was confusing to be honest. It's an experimental dish, so if you like trying stuff, go for it. Otherwise, this ones easily missable.
Buffalo Bleu:
Housemade roasted garlic sauce, part skim mozzarella, gorgonzola, spiced chicken breast, green onions.

Super smooth pizza. The taste was phenomenal. I think it was the spiced chicken breast or the roasted garlic sauce that did the trick. Or perhaps the combination of all the ingredients mentioned above.
