LaRocco's Pizzeria Photos and Menu Items Huntington Beach, California

LaRocco's Pizzeria, 11th Street, Huntington Beach, CA 92648
(714) 374-2555

Billed as "A slice of New York", LaRocco's is the second location for a pizzeria that first opened in San Clemente. If you like thin crust with a crunch that melts into the juicy ingredients it holds, the pizzas served at LoRocco's are best eaten piping hot to maintain that crunchy texture of the pie crust. The texture is wonderful, complimenting the sauces, toppings, herbs and rich flavors of this gourmet pizza.

Having to choose between two pizza shops side by side overlooking Pacific Coast Highway and the Pacific Ocean, we wandered in and tried LaRocco's because of their advertising...the huge pans of fresh baked pizzas were displayed in the glass cases as you enter the cafe with red accent walls and memorabilia of New York. The smell of the pizzas and visual appeal made the choice quite easy. Next door at Papa Joe's, the long-time resident of downtown pizza dining, there were no pizzas baking at the time so we followed our senses to LaRocco's Pizzeria. 

Wonderful flavors, fantastic crust and served piping hot and fresh, we tried a slice of the pizza shown in the photo above.  We took a slice from the left side of the pan, opting for The Manhattan with Roasted Red Pepper and Pesto topping. Served on a paper plate, the staff was incredibly nice and greeted us with a smile as they kindly cut one slice in half for our small appetites.  Even nicer was the help the guys provided as the pizza was spilled on a pair of slacks...the same pants that survived the paintball event with removal of yellow paint splatters.
