Why Zoca Pizza is special ?
Opened in February in a nondescript building near the entrance to Linjiang Street Night Market (臨江街觀光夜市) off Anhe Road (安和路) Section 2, Zoca Pizzeria Caffetteria has quickly earned a devoted following among lovers of thin-crust pizza. The interior is simple, warm and inviting — made more so by the fragrant smell of baking dough wafting out of the stone oven where Italian national Federico Zocatelli bakes up one of the best pizzas this reviewer has eaten in Taipei.
Zoca’s big draw is its 43 varieties of pizza. In fact, aside from one kind of lasagna (NT$220), a daily soup (NT$50) a house salad (NT$50) and dessert, there is little else on the menu. All pizzas are 10-inch, but as each is rolled to order, they often come to the table slightly larger.
You should order its famous: the Pugliese (NT$350), a robust and savory combination of tomato sauce, mozzarella, spicy sausage, red onion, whole pitted black olives, capers and oregano, and the lighter Italia (NT$350), a vegetarian combination of tomato sauce, mozzarella and ricotta cheeses, fresh tomato and spinach.

Tips for you
I love Zoca Pizza. I gave it five stars because I went with my Italian friend who exclaimed that she never normally misses Italian food, until she tried Zoca. It is run by an Italian and his pizza is, according to my friend, about as authentic as a good Italian pizza can be. They import their ingredients and makes everything from scratch, including the lasagne and the desserts. Naturally you can get Limoncello and Peroni too. This is the real deal, fresh, delicious and authentic and the owner is friendly and personable so if you get a chance to chat with him grab it.
