Yummy in my tummy! Z pizza’s gluten-free crust is pretty tasty, and the pizza topping “creations” rock!
Pizza is one of those things I thought we’d never eat out again, and, oh, how it depressed me. Stuffing myself at Pizza Hut is a fond childhood memory, and it pained me to think I might not get to share that experience with my own children. I get teary just thinking about it. Sniff.
So, when I first learned that several restaurants are now offering gluten-free pizzas, I thought I’d jump out of my pants; I was so excited! Too soon, my hopes were dashed, and our experience at Uno Chicago Grill taught me to lower my expectations for any future gluten-free pizza adventures. Still, when Kim suggested z pizza, I was thrilled to find out we have several in our area and incredibly anxious to get to one and try it out!
I thoroughly enjoyed our gluten-free dinner at z pizza. We ordered three creations: Napoli, Thai, and American. They were all excellent. The gluten-free crust is simple: light, thin, buttery, and crisp. The toppings are fresh, flavorful, and plentiful. I was surprised how much I loved the Napoli, topped only with cheese, tomatoes, and fresh basil. I rarely cook with fresh herbs (you know, not really being the chef-type), but, WOW, fresh basil is sooo good!! The Thai pizza was delicious, with spicy chicken and yummy peanut sauce; it had just the right amount of kick. The American was, well, American…big chunks of sausage, fresh peppers…not quite as exciting as the other two, but still very good. Z pizzas are light on crust, sauce, and cheese, but packed with flavor. They are definitely gluten-freelicious.
So, z pizza gets two thumbs up. I am, however, still on the lookout for a greasy deep dish or New York style gluten-free pizza, loaded with sauce and cheese. Is it out there? Is it even possible?
