Pizzeria Oceano- Lantana, FL

Ariel recently visited the family in Florida. We went to a beautiful Bar Mitzvah and danced the night away. The next morning, we drove back to Boca from Palm Beach and decided to make a stop at Pizzeria Oceano. I heard great things about the place; they use the freshest ingredients and there is only a certain amount of dough made each morning. If that isn’t fresh, I don’t know what is.

Pizza Stop Pasta- West Palm Beach, FL

This small pizza/pasta joint is located in “The Village” shops off Palm Beach Lakes. My team and I have eaten lunch here on occasion. It is usually quick and efficient and the food is simple. They have great lunch specials as well.

I tried my first stromboli here, and it was a thrilling experience. For pizza education- a calzone & stromboli are different. Calzones are normally pockets/pouches with the ingredients on the inside. A stromboli is rolled with the stuffing.

Allora- West Palm Beach

This pizzeria shares space with Cafe Centro. My coworkers and I grabbed lunch here and shared a pizza and an appetizer. We were pleased with the NY/Italian-style pizza.

Also, we ordered mozzarella sticks, and I honestly thought these were some of the best I’ve tasted in a while. The breading on the cheese was crisp and cheese was awesome. These were no packaged deep-fried pieces, in my opinion. Only gripe was the runny tomato sauce.. it didn’t really hold up against the stix.

Garlic Knots. Greasy goodness

Mozzarella Sticks. Loverly

Ovenella- Boca Raton, FL

Well my parents have found a new pizza place. It’s located across from the Royal Palm strip mall in Boca Raton, right near my mom’s boutique. Ovenella hasn’t been open for too many months, but if there were issues before, they seem to have worked out the kinks. Ovenella is a full restaurant with a pizza oven and a full page of pizzas. The waiter told me their list used to be larger and it was originally marketed as a pizzeria, but they couldn’t handle the demand with the size of their oven.
