BEST PIZZA GOLDEN OLE
LAROCCO’S PIZZERIA 122 S. El Camino Real, 949.366.8890
Owner Faye Wickland said Active Culture moved into its current location three years ago, bringing along with it the popular frozen yogurt self-serve bar with all the toppings. “We don’t have anything fried or overly processed,” Wickland said. The menu at Active Culture is 99 percent vegetarian with a few exceptions, she added.
Slices of pie from the ﬁve boroughs are represented at LaRocco’s Pizzeria, which puts an emphasis on the New York-style delicacy. They also offer calzones and other assortments from the Big Apple. If you’re looking for something familiar from the East Coast, LaRocco’s will most certainly ﬁll your desire.
