zPizza finally opens on First Avenue

A branch of the zPizza franchise finally opened this week here on First Avenue at East Second Street ... BoweryBoogie noted this impending arrival back on Dec. 23, 2010 ... and we spotted the sign last August.

Here's some info via zPizza:

Our dough is made from certified organic wheat flour prepared fresh every day, hand-thrown and fire-baked until uniquely crisp. We combine select ingredients such as certified organic tomato sauce, part-skim rBGH-free cheese from grass-fed cows, MSG-free pepperoni, and additive-free sausage. Even our fresh produce sets us apart. Exotic delights like Cremini and Shiitaki mushrooms, roasted eggplant, pili pili and truffle oil, pine nuts, artichoke hearts, roasted bell peppers and caramelized onions assure you'll never experience a boring pizza. The same holds true for our gourmet salads and sandwiches. That said we hope you enjoy our unique and authentic recipes as much as we enjoy making them for you.

I tried a slice and liked it. Enough to get it again if I was in that particular area. (Disclosure: I like most all pizza that costs more than .99 cents. Or $1. Or that comes from a microwave.)

This is the Laguna Beach, Calif.-based company's second NYC location... right there with Terminal 4 at JFK...

My favorite pizza is Lil Frankie's (on the same block? across the street?) so this place had better be DAMN good in order for me to bother to go twice!
