There’s a slice of Laguna Beach in Hawaii that comes in the form of a pizzeria. ZPizza prides itself on 100-percent organic wheat flour baked fresh daily with zesty toppings, like MSG-free pepperoni and organic tomato sauce.
Simply put, this is the healthiest pizza will ever get – which sets it apart from other take-out and deliveries. Plus, ZPizza offers gluten-free and vegan options. We all know that eating healthy usually means you’ll pay more, which is why the menu is a bit on the pricier side. Whole pies cost anywhere from $12.95 to $25.95, while slices start at $3.25.
But if you’re willing to splurge on good food, then it’s worth the price for a pricer pie. We got the Thai pizza, which is loaded with peanut sauce, mozzarella, red onions, cilantro, carrots, bean sprouts and spicy chicken. It was incredible but what convinced me to go for a second slice was that the pizza was also really healthy. Go figure. ZPizza also offers tasty sandwiches and salads.
The pizzeria opened in Ward several years ago and seems to be doing really well. It’s a small shop sandwiched between two surf stores, a perfect fit for its Laguna Beach origins. Seating is a bit limited, though, so take-out might be a better option. You could walk across the street to Ala Moana Beach Park instead.
