Jody And Mark Aka “Zzeek” have always shared a love of pizza. Zzeek learned to make pizza from his mother and started as a 10-year-old making pizza for the neighborhood kids. Jody growing up in the U.P. of Michigan was surrounded by independent Mom and Pop Pizzerias and, at a very young age, decided that’s what she was going to do when she grew up because she loved to eat pizza and still eats pizza almost every day.
After graduating from college, they both found their way to Phoenix and began working for a large Global Pizza Brand. This is where they met and eventually got married. Jody was a high energy Mega successful G.M., and Zzeek went the route of supervising stores and learning the business from all sides.
In 2001 they purchased 12 franchise restaurants in Portland, Oregon. Over the next 10 years of working hard, they turned those restaurants into some of the best in the Pacific Northwest. Although they were successful, they missed Phoenix, so when the opportunity came to sell their restaurants and move back home, they jumped at the opportunity.
In 2013 they opened the first Zzeeks Pizza in Ahwatukee. The Mission was simple, they wanted to make pizza the old way, hand tossed fresh dough made in house daily. Sauce is made daily from the best ingredients simmering it long and slow to capture all the essence of those ingredients. Zzeeks has award winning Chicken wings with 28 different flavoring choices, going all the way from mild to suicide, sweet to salty and vinegar, dry rubs, and traditional wet sauces. Many of these are developed in our kitchen and can’t be found anywhere else. Zzeeks also has a healthy Menu full of incredible choices, ranging from Keto crust pizza, cauliflower pizza, Vegan option crusts, and the best Vegan cheese on the Market. Great made to order salads, including all your favorites like Cobb, Ceasar, Anti Pasto, Southwest, and Garden, just to name a few.
The most important part of their business plan was to dig into the communities of each restaurant and support those communities with Fundraising, becoming an outlet for local Charities to partner with, supporting food drives, and leading an annual food drive for our four-legged friends.
We hope you will give our Pizza and many other menu options a try and hopefully make your neighborhood Zzeeks Pizza & Wings your pizza of choice going forward.
First Pizza experience in Arizona. It was amazing. The pizza shown is there all meat pizza 20inch. Sauce was the perfect amount and flavor was taste. I will be ordering from here more while I here. Thank you for you Great Pizza. I intend on trying other pizza specialities as well.
So glad to see that this place is finally open not too far from my home. If you’ve been to Zzeeks other locations, everything is very much similar on the menu.
I do like the options of the 10 inch keto crust that is gluten-free as well as the ‘double the dough’ which is a nice thick (but not too thick crust)
Drafts are $3.99, $6 Lunch Combo with a huge slice & drink and $.80 wing special on Sundays!!
Pizzas, sandwich & fries were great & the breadstick bites are great with the marinara sauce. Staff is great and super friendly & helpful… they are part of the local community (schools) which is another perk to keep supporting. Looking forward to making many return trips.
Just had lunch today at this new Zzeeks Pizza location. Pesto chicken sandwich and Cajun Tater Tots. Pepperoni Pizza lunch special. Fresh and delicious. They have a large selection of pizza, sandwiches, salads, Kids menu, Gluten Free Options. Beer, Sodas and huge Warm Chocolate chip cookies. Private room available for meetings or small parties. Try It, You’ll Love It!
Not only is the food great! But, the owners and the staff make this place special. They support and spread kindness throughout their community. 10 stars!
Mmm best place for pizza during lunch time. Their pizza and wings combo is affordable and delicious. It would be dangerous if I lived any closer to this location I’d be here every day!
You can never go wrong with pizza or wings or anything from Zzeeks!
Food is always on point and staff is always always amazing
Wow! First time trying Zesty Zzeeks! Super fast delivery! Love the sauce, great flavor overall! Haven’t had pizza that I said ‘wow, this is REALLY GOOD!’ in a long time. So glad I took this leap of faith and tried y’all!
