Pizza seems to be our thing lately. We seem to drift towards pizza every time we go out lately. CK and I recently checked out Zazaza - Pizza with Pizazz in New Edinburgh. It is housed in the little shack where Fraser Cafe used to be, and as it turns out, Zazaza is the creation of partners Ion Aimers (The Works Burger) and the Fraser Brothers (Fraser Cafe). The pizza options are as extensive as the Works burger choices, with 25 pizza choices in total.
CK and I had a relaxing casual lunch date at Zazaza where we got to chat and talk about where our life is going next. We loved the funky music that was playing in the background. We heard everything from old blues music to cool 90's hits. The art pieces displayed around the place was pretty cool too. My favorite is the one shown in the title photo above.
CK ordered a freshly squeezed lemonade garnished with fresh mint to go with his pizza.
I ordered the hail Caesar pizza. This was a Caesar salad in pizza form: pesto oil, anchovies, bacon, grilled romaine lettuce, chicken, parmesan, mozzarella cheese topped with Caesar dressing. This pizza really worked, and I loved the anchovy bits. The bacon and anchovy can be a bit salty for some but definitely worth a try.

CK ordered the fancy mushroom pizza which had roasted portobello, shitake, oyster mushrooms, parmesan, goat cheeze and mozzarella, topped with a truffle oil drizzle. We could smell the truffle oil from afar, and I was worried it was going to be too overpowering, but it wasn't. It was actually one of the better mushroom pizzas I have tried.

Overall, the pizzas were good. The crust was thin, and the flavor combos were creative.
