The Big Cheese created ZaZaZa in 2010 on an infamous little corner in New Edinburg. Tired of "Ho Hum" pizza, he envisioned churning fresh batches of dough, brewing yummy sauces from scratch, whole fresh toppings, and the best cheeses around! He dreamed of a stage for talented young Chefs to present "Pizza with Pizazz" in an artistic setting all served with genuine hospitality at the core. The results are now in...And the reviews are superb. Thanks Ottawa for making ZaZaZa your neighbourhood pizza joint...With pizazz.

Some Kinda Good Pizza !

In the original location of The Works and channeling some of The Works menu quirkiness, this is a pizza lovers nirvana. Very limited seating but lots of take out action. A varied menu of original 12 inch pizzas offers something for every taste. Thin crusts in three choices.This is our new favourite... read more

We have eaten at ZAZaZa before - and enjoyed it. But this last trip left us less than satisfied. The restaurant was busy, but there is no excuse for having to wait 15 minutes for a waitress - and then track her down, just to get a beer. For me, getting a drink in hand quickly is the first (and... More

On the recommendation of a friend, I went to Za Za Za for dinner after spending the day at a powerlifting competition. I had been on a bit of a calorie restriction the week prior in order to weigh in below my prescribed weight class limit so after the competition, I was pretty ravenous. I ordered a beer, the beet...

This appears to be THE place for superior and unusual pizzas. We have only used them for take-out, but they have a nice area for serving people who come in to eat. However the seating area is not large. One benefit of eating in is that they have local craft beers available, but these cannot be purchased to take out.... More

It's small restaurant that you need to know, should you want to experience other kinds of special pizza or side dish. An entree of sweet potatoes is served in a pink running shoes, good old fashion bottles of Coke, absolutely delicious chicken wings and tons of pizza to chose from. The staff is very nice.

Had been to ZaZaZa' on Beechwood in Ottawa years ago and really enjoyed the pizza as it had a great and different crust with a choice of unique toppings. This time same thing but quality was much less. All was less appetizing, less tasty and more oily. A little smaller than a normal "medium" pizza and much thinner we still... More
