Z Pizza in Alexandria Goes Gluten Free
Great news! Z Pizza now has a gluten free pie crust. The crust is light and delicious. While I love the Rustico crust as well, Z Pizza’s seems to be more of a rice flour as opposed to the chickpea flour crust at Rustico. The Z Pizza crust is thinner and lighter in texture.
Z Pizza is not serving gluten free crusts at all of their locations yet, but their Alexandria franchise on Duke Street now has it. David and I were particularly excited about this new food option because Z Pizza offers takeout and my family loves Z Pizza. When people invite us over for dinner, I often feel like I don’t have good options to tell them of things they can feed me, so Z Pizza is a perfect option, particularly for friends who don’t cook much.
We ordered Z Pizza last week and asked all of the usual ‘gluten free questions’ of the manager. They make and bake their gluten free crusts in a separate part of the store AND they use separate toppings to put on the pizzas. I didn’t inquire as to whether all of the topping options are gluten free, so I kept it simple and ordered a pizza with veggies (the California pizza). Z Pizza uses fresh ingredients, many of which are organic. The pizza was flavorful, delicious and I didn’t get sick! The pizza also reheated well the next day so I enjoyed it for lunch too.
Enjoy! Let me know if you try any of the other toppings offered at Z Pizza.
