A new pizza place and two Japanese restaurants have opened recently in San Antonio.
Zpizza has opened its first location in San Antonio at 700 E. Sonterra Blvd. in the same plaza as Auden’s Kitchen and the Lion & Rose.
The chain prides itself on having a more healthful pizza, through the use of all-natural and organic ingredients as well as low-fat products. Even the mozzarella is made from the milk from grass-fed Wisconsin cows.
Pizza, of course, is what rules at zpizza, and you can enjoy such pies as the Greek (feta, mozzarella, Greek olives, red onions and tomatoes), the Casablanca (roasted garlic sauce, mozzarella, ricotta, mushrooms and artichoke hearts), and the ZBQ (barbecue sauce, mozzarella, barbecue chicken, roasted peppers, red onions, corn and cilantro). There’s even the Berkeley Vegan with veggie burger crumbles, vegan cheese and plenty of veggies.
The crust is thin and crispy, and pizzas are available by the slice or the pie.
Also on the menu are sandwiches, salads and appetizers.
Call 210-402-1500 or visit zpizza.com. You can order online.
