Viva La Rustica! Zpizza Launches a Pure Pizza Revolution

LOS ANGELES, Nov. 23, 2010 — Zpizza is starting a pure pizza flavor revolution with tastes from around the world in each bite of their Zpizza rusticas. Rusticas are
personal-sized free form crust pizzas, made with 100% certified organic wheat dough prepared fresh every day, hand-thrown and fire-baked until uniquely crisp.

With options like curry chicken and yam and pear and gorgonzola, rusticas have amazing flavor, are half the calories of regular pizza and are made with a crispier,
crunchier crust. Zpizza encourages customers to experience their bold rustica flavors by offering a buy-one-get-one free on all rusticas beginning now through January 31, 2011. Members of ztribe, Zpizza’s loyalty program, will receive a free rustica. For ztribe sign-ups during the promotional period, new members will receive a free rustica with any purchase.
“We wanted to create a healthier, artisan pizza with many unique flavor profiles inspired by global cuisines,” said Sid Fanarof, founder, Zpizza. “We used a thinner crust,
infused ingredients authentic to dishes from India, Morocco, France, and, of course, Italy. Like all of our pizzas, rustica dough and sauces are organic; we offer gluten-free
and vegan options and our pepperoni and sausage are additive and MSG-free.”

Zpizza rustica flavor combinations include:

— The chicken sausage rustica with marinara sauce, part skim rBGH-free mozzarella from grass-fed cows, arugula and chicken sausage.

— Zpizza’s pear and gorgonzola rustica marries the flavors of savory and sweet with two cheeses, mozzarella and gorgonzola, and pear, then topped with fresh thyme.

— The Indian-inspired curry chicken and yam has an interesting combination of mozzarella and curry chicken, yams, mango chutney, raisins and cilantro.

— Mediterranean includes classic Mediterranean flavors like mozzarella topped with feta, artichoke hearts, roasted peppers, greek olives, oregano and pili pili oil.

— The North African Moroccan comes with basil pesto, mozzarella, roasted eggplant, feta, caramelized onions and pine nuts.
