I'm shocked at some of the negative reviews. This place was greart. The pizza was excellent and so reasonably priced! Be sure you get there early because this appears to be a very popular place. Loved the fresh ingredients, and especially loved the crunchy crust on the pizzas. Wish we had such a place in San Juan Capistrano, CA

I love a good pizza. I've been eating them for 55+ years - everything from a home-made Chef Boyardee (circa 1960) to gourmet pizzas in nice restaurants, so I think I know a good pizza when I taste one. First, you must start with a great crust - not so thin it tastes like cardboard and (if thick crust) not underdone, doughy and yeast-y. Then the sauce - homemade is best with a sweet but 'Italian' basil taste, made from fresh ingredients if possible. Then, add fresh ingredients as toppings, finished off with quality mozzarella cheese. It can't be greasy (as least overly greasy). And, of course, it's gotta be hot.
When I read the reviews on Zion Pizza, I thought I had a good shot at getting a great pizza. Strike One: The crust (supposedly fresh) was gooey, doughy both in the center and at the lower outer crust. We scraped the toppings off, ate them and threw away most of the crust. Strike Two: Pitifully little sauce. We had a Hawaiian pizza (canadian bacon and pineapple) so I expected at least some sauce.
The pros: The bacon, pineapple and cheese were fresh and tasty. Too bad the lousy crust and lack of sauce resulted in a mediocre pizza.
I also found it strange that they were putting out a "Closed" sign at 9:30 on a Friday night. Maybe I got the dregs of the crust and they were giving up for the day?

When I go to a restaurant, I expect a waiter/waitress to come take my order and then bring it out. NOPE! This place, you come in, seat yourself. When you are ready you go up to the counter (this particular case, I had to stand in line, which I will give a little there because it was a Saturday night.) After ordering, I noticed a tip jar. They expect a tip for ME to come to their counter, order my meal and then wait for them to bring it out, after they walk all over the restaurant looking for my number. NO. No tip! By the time I got to the counter, I decided I was going to do take out and go back to my hotel room where it was comfortable and warm. The night time was chilly and they had all their doors open. When my friend and I got back to the hotel room, we were excited to have some good pizza. After all a local told us it was great tasting pizza. Nope.. Wrong again. The pizza was not very favorable. The garlic bread was ok and it was nothing to get excited over. We ate two pieces and threw the rest out. I spent to much money for a mere flavorless pizza. I would not recommend this place. To me, it was a waste of money and time. We only went to this place after trying the Flying Monkey. (They had run out of food and closed early.)

We had pizza last night that was heavenly. The crust was perfect and the ingredients were all fresh, no canned ingredients here. The atmosphere was comfortable and warm. The service was great. The restaurant was clean everywhere I looked. The service was also very fast. I would go back again without reservation....loved it!!!!

We were referred to this restaurant by another hiker we met on the trail. From the outside, this place looks very small, but it is bigger on the inside and extends further back than you would think. You place your order at the counter and they bring you your food. It was not a long wait. My husband got spaghetti & meatballs and he got the most meatballs he has ever gotten in a spaghetti dinner at any other restaurant. I got the veggie lasagna and ate every bit of it. Their food was not starchy; just wonderful after a long day of hiking!
