New York transplant Gerry and his son Shaun, owners of East Side Pizza at Boca Park, understand just how high their home state sets the bar for great family pizzerias. So several times a week, they send out orders for shipments of fresh pizza dough from their supplier back on the East Coast. It's just one of the little things that ends up having a big impact on the taste and texture of their hand-tossed, New York–style, thin-crust pizzas. The fresh dough is covered with housemade marinara sauce and topped with both traditional and surprising ingredients, creating specialty pies such as the barbecue chicken, chicken marsala, and eggplant rollatini, each sold whole or by the slice.
Their full menu features calzones, pastas and hot sandwiches, including their signature meatball sub topped with mozzarella. Choose to dine in, and you'll find yourself in a comfortable dining room surrounded by flat-screen TVs and sports memorabilia.
