A CLOSER LOOK AT THIS WEEK’S HOUSE SPECIAL: Roasted Tomato Pesto $13.95 (small), $25.95 (large), $28.95 (extra large)

If you could dream of a healthy pizza, what would you imagine?

At zpizza, there is no need, as it is the restaurant’s main culinary mission to serve up the finest, healthiest versions of the Italian staple.

Catering to both meat and veggie lovers, the eatery delivers more to the imagination, as it takes pizza up another nutritious and delicious notch. A new addition to its regular menu is the Roasted Tomato Pesto. Like many dishes at zpizza, it’s one reinvented with healthier-ingredient alternatives. This includes organic basil pesto, mozzarella cheese, cherry tomatoes and fresh basil. “You’ll feel better after knowing that these ingredients are not processed; it’s more healthier for you,” says operations training manager Christopher Llarenas.

Although it is a simple dish, the Roasted Tomato Pesto has more flavors than meets the eye. Every crunch of a bite is a cheesy and savory combo that perfectly satisfies the appetite. So, cut-to-the-Italian-chase and have a slice or two of something that’s good for “z-soul” and “z-body.”
