My husband and I had lunch at zpizza in Roseville over the weekend. I had seen the restaurant listed online and noticed that they were very vegan-friendly, so I had to check it out.
One of their pizzas is actually called the Berkeley Vegan, so that's the one I decided to try. It was a thin-crust pizza with marinara sauce, Daiya vegan cheese, Gardein veggie burger crumbles, zucchini, tomatoes, mushrooms, and bell pepper. It normally comes with red onions as well, but I ordered mine without the onions. I don't always like fake meat, but I thought the veggie burger crumbles were a nice addition. I really enjoyed this pizza.
The zpizza website has a frequently-asked questions page about their vegan options, which includes a list of the ingredients found in their meat and cheese substitutes. I love a restaurant that takes the guesswork out of ordering a vegan meal! I think the next time I visit, I'll try the Mediterranean Plate without the feta, which would consist of hummus, Greek olives, roasted peppers, cucumber slices, and zbread (pizza dough brushed with olive oil and salt, then baked until crispy).
zpizza is a national restaurant chain, but their only location in the Sacramento area is the one in Roseville/Granite Bay, located at 3984 Douglas Boulevard, Suite 140. Their phone number is 916-876-9797, and their website address is http://www.zpizza.com/. The restaurant is open Monday through Saturday from 11:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m., and Sunday from 11:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m.
