Pizza Journal: I’ve heard Bocce has the best pizza in WNY. I’ve heard it too many times to count. It was by far the most recommended place to visit by our readers. There was much anticipation to say the least. Never having been to the location before, (I’ve never tried the pizza before now either) I expected to find a full fledged restaurant inside based on the store front. When I walked inside I found just a pick up counter and tons of people at work behind it, accompanied by stacks and stacks of pizza boxes. I could tell these guys do serious volume. That was not however, my first indication of the volume coming out of this pizzeria. This was actually my second attempt at laying my hands on one of their pizzas. The first time I was in the neighborhood and called ahead, thinking I could swing by 20-30 minutes later, I was clearly mistaken because the wait was an hour and a half! All I have to say about that is good for them! They obviously know what they’re doing. The pizza is huge, there are tons of slices and it’s really good. I’d say the crust is the best part – it’s more like dough throughout the entire pizza. Something about this pizza is a little different. Maybe it’s the crust. The cheese and sauce are also outstanding. To be perfectly honest, the pepperoni isn’t my favorite. I like a little more spice and crunch to it  and that’s why I couldn’t give it a rating closer to 5. But overall the pizza is seriously good & highly recommended by me and the rest of WNY.


Tester Observations:

CRUST: nice and fluffy, very different, more like dough the whole way through instead of having dough and then a different, bigger crust, the best part of the pie

SAUCE: good taste, not too much – perfect amount

CHEESE: cheesy, melty goodness

PEPPERONI: not much flavor/spice here
