About Us

Michael Zirpoli loves pizza. “Why not? You ask anyone: if you had to eat one thing every day for the rest of your life, what would it he? The answer is always pizza. He Started Michaels Pizzeria in 2013 in a little 500 square foot store on Hillsboro Blvd which he out grew in a few years and moved into the Cove Plaza and was there for 4 years before he sold it in 2020. Took some time off but soon decided to reopen just a few months later. “ I was bored and decided I wanted to bring great NY Style Pizza to Boca Raton like I did in Deerfield” Location is everything so when this spot became available Michael decided to take advantage of the opportunity. He came in gave it a whole new look and created East Side Pizzeria.



Michael, originally from New York, came by his love of food naturally.

“It’s a side effect of growing up Italian. Growing up I worked in the Italian feast in Brooklyn with my family at a very young age and I loved it, although I was working long days and nights in the summer while most kids were enjoying their summer I was working but having fun serving people and watching them have a great time and enjoy eating the food we were putting out. “I mean what brings people together more than food!! It was a great feeling.”

East Side Pizzeria offers up to over 14 types of pizza a day, a variety of Stromboli’s ,Calzones and everything from Chicken  and Eggplant  parmesan Pizza ,Margarita Pizza to a Stuffed Pizza with a slice weighing almost a pound! All of them are made with the freshest ingredients. “All our toppings are hand cut and made fresh every day and we use the finest tomatoes from California and the highest quality cheese on our pizzas. Our sauce and meatballs are made fresh in house. We prepare our chicken cutlets fresh and pan fry to perfection, as we do

His dedication to fresh ingredients is visible in the pizzas in the show case, they are vividly fresh and taste as good as they smell. The most popular is the Grandma Pizza with mozzarella, filetto, pomodoro, tomatoes, fresh garlic, topped with fresh cut basil, and the Sicilian pizza which is hand stretched and left to rise for hours to create a light and airy dough that is crispy on the bottom.  We offer amazing Salads and fresh home cooked Italian Dishes.


If you’re looking for authentic NY style pizza and wings in East Boca, look no further. As a former New Yorker, I have struggled to find comparable pizza in Florida, as I have high expectations. Trust me, East Side Pizza is hands down the best in Boca. Eating here will make your 2020 better. Go try it out, you won’t regret it.

People and food were incredible. Owner is one of the nicest dudes I have met here in Florida. Pizza was delicious and their garlic knots were on point! I definitely recommend this place to everyone!
