Reasons to Order Pizza for Your Employees

PizzaThere’s just something about pizza that makes it the kind of food people don’t just like…they love it! Indeed, people seem to crave pizza.

In college, clubs looking for new members always use pizza as the main draw to get new people into the club. Look around a campus today and you’ll undoubtedly see advertisements for various clubs and organizations. Their meetings, if they want them to be well-attended, offer “free pizza!”

Now if you’re a business owner and you’d like to reward employees for their great work, you should consider ordering Bocce Club Pizza. Not only does pizza serve as a reward for people, but it’s also a great motivator, too. Take, for example, a study that involved employees at an Intel factory in Israel.

In this study, there were four possible scenarios involving the assembly of a certain amount of computer chips that day. One group got a message promising pizza if they reached and exceeded their goal. Another group was promised compliments. Another was promised a cash bonus. And the control group received no message– no incentive at all. So what do you think turned out to be the biggest motivator that day? You’d expect it to be cash, right? Nope! It was the promise of pizza, which increased productivity by 6.7 percent.

Employees tend to do the same things over and over, everyday. When an employer introduces pizza into the mix, it’s “nice for a change,” as the saying goes. Pizza brings people together as they all reach for a slice. It’s a communal food– the kind that can be eaten by hand or on a napkin or plate. Asking employees what particular toppings they want is also a good way to show them you care, and the nice thing about pizza is it can be customized to people’s preferences.

Reward and/or motivate your employees today by giving them a nice surprise: Bocce Club Pizza. Please call 716-833-1344 (Amherst) or 716-689-2345 (E. Amherst) to place your order today.

 

Why Comfort Food is Good for the Soul

Comfort FoodYou’ve heard the famous line, “You can’t go home again,” but that’s not totally true. Sure, places change over time, and people come and go, but, in general, you can actually go home again. “Home is where the heart is,” right? There’s something very comforting about being home and/or coming home. Home is about family, tradition, and, most importantly, love.

When you think of growing up, do you have a favorite meal your mom made you? It didn’t have to be anything fancy. Maybe it was her macaroni and cheese, or a certain soup, or the way she prepared vegetables that cannot be duplicated. In life, we find comfort in certain foods. Hence, they’re called “comfort foods.”

One of the best comfort foods is pizza. Considering there’s a pizza place in nearly every town, small or large, and people can’t seem to get enough pizza, it’s obviously popular. Pizza is a great comfort food because it evokes good thoughts and warm feelings. Eating pizza improves your sense of well-being and even makes you feel less lonely. It sounds corny, but pizza is like a really good friend.

Now one thing’s for sure: Buffalonians love comfort food. With the cold, snowy winters, there’s nothing better than a hot, tasty pizza from Bocce Club Pizza.

During the past couple decades a lot of our friends and family moved away from Buffalo. Since they’re far from home, they probably check the Buffalo News website to keep tabs on what’s happening in the area. They probably try to visit once in a while, especially at Thanksgiving or Christmas. They’ll tell you they miss home, including certain foods like beef-on-weck and Bocce Club pizza.

Well, here’s something you should know: Bocce can actually mail people pizza! So, if you or a friend/relative is far from home, have Bocce mail them a pizza to remind them of home. Comfort food can be shipped!

Why Pizza and Wings Are the Ideal Options to Serve at Parties

Pizza Parties True story: Uncle Bud lives in the mountains of Western North Carolina. He does not have a good pizza and wings place anywhere near him. Uncle Bud loves to eat pizza and wings. Therefore, when he comes back to Buffalo, a place he grew up, he cannot wait to eat pizza and wings from Bocce Club Pizza. “God I love this stuff, God it’s good!” he proclaims.

You can travel the world but you’re not likely to find pizza as good as the kind Bocce makes. There’s just something so tasty and comforting about it. Then, of course, Buffalo wings in Buffalo are the best– that’s just a no-brainer right there.

So why are pizza and wings the best options to serve when hosting a party? Well, ask around and you’ll soon discover that the majority of Buffalonians love to eat… pizza and wings. If you had the choice between kale and wings, which would you choose? How about pizza versus tofu?

Parties are meant to be fun. Pizza and wings are the best party foods because they taste so good– it’s like giving your mouth a prize. Sure, you could eat boring foods, but why not feed yourself something so good that you’ll smile as you wipe your fingers on the nearby napkins and say, “Damn, that’s good!”

There are some staples people like to eat, including cheese, meat, tomatoes and bread. With the right “spices,” these foods satisfy us in a way that we actually look forward to eating them. The nice thing about Bocce pizza and wings is that they come prepared for easy access at parties– open the boxes and let people pick up the pieces with their hands and “go to town.” You don’t have to use plates or silverware if you don’t want to– it’s not fancy.

For your Buffalo party pizza and wings, call Bocce. Here’s the contact page for the numbers and/or to order online: http://www.bocceclubpizza.com/c-16-contact-us.aspx

What Are Your Favorite Pizza Seasonings?

Favorite Pizza Seasonings

One of the best things about pizza is that you can completely customize your pie. From toppings to spices, different cheeses, and so on, you can just about add anything to make it delicious.

From the time of pizza’s invention, it was just cheese or cheese and pepperoni, but now the varieties are never-ending, which makes pizza even more delectable, enjoyable, and desirable.

One of the easiest ways to spruce up a pizza pie is by changing the flavoring with spices and different seasonings.

Here is a few of seasonings you might have tried and love and maybe you’re looking for a new flavor and here is a bit of help deciding.

Sriracha – this seasoning is a mix of red chili peppers, garlic, and vinegar. This combination adds a spicy hot and tangy flavor to your pizza.

Parmesan – this grounded cheese adds a unique and subtle flavor that is just enough to enrich the taste of pizza.

Salt and Pepper – the perfect combination, salt, and pepper complement each other so well and really amp up food.

Sweet Basil – this classic herb will sweeten up your pizza and will cut out some acidity of the tomato sauce traditionally used on pizza.

Red Pepper Flakes – this seasoning adds some spice to pizza and not as much hot taste like Sriracha would.

The flavorings mentioned above can be added to your pizza pie. You can choose one or more spices for a unique taste.

If you want to spice up your pizza with different flavor combinations, Bocce Club Pizza can do that for you.

We delight in creating unique blends of seasoning to top our pizza and we always welcome feedback from our customers.

You can customize your Bocce pizza to your liking with various spices. Feel free to mention your favorite flavor combinations while ordering your next pizza at one of your favorite locations today!

The Scientific Reasons Why Pizza Tastes So Good

Why Pizza Tastes So Good

In the world, there aren’t many types of foods that everyone can commonly agree are delicious.

 

Most culinary experts might say it is because there are not many foods that can be made that everyone will enjoy, no matter what they are made of.

 

And that is what makes pizza great – because pizza can be crafted and baked in a myriad of ways, to satisfy even the pickiest of eaters.

 

But why does pizza taste so good to so many for as long as it has? It’s science of course!

 

What’s The Science Behind Pizza’s Deliciousness?

 

It is all in your taste buds. The ingredients in the pizza appeal and are like stimulants to your taste buds. With every slice, the umami from glutamates in the ingredients triggers that fifth taste, making the pizza as savory and delicious as it was the very first bite.

 

So it goes without saying that pizza makers try to give you as much flavor as possible, by adding as much glutamate as possible.

 

Tomato sauce, cheese, beef, pork, chicken, and fish – all typical ingredients that make up your pizza – are all packed with glutamate and umami.

 

These toppings attack the taste buds enhancing the flavor, making it addicting and us wanting more. You could say that the glutamate is the perfect marketer for pizza and its deliciousness.

 

At Bocce Club Pizza, we create amazing Buffalo pizza that appeals to all your taste buds. From the Original to the Gluten-free, we have a plethora of toppings you can add to your pizza for all to enjoy.

Pizza Cleanse Can Help You Lose Weight

Pizza Cleanse

Yes, you read that right, one man claims that he ate pizza every day and it helped him to lose 100 pounds.

 

Italian chef and current New Yorker, Pasquale Cozzolino told Good Morning America how he lost over 100 pounds in the summer just eating pizza every day.

 

At over 370 pounds, Cozzolino realized it was time to lose weight once he was struggling to play with his son and that his doctor told him he was at serious risk of a heart attack.

 

That’s when the Italian chef started making his own pizzas out of fresh materials and eating them for lunch every day. And being a chef from the homeland, making the delicious pizza wasn’t hard.

 

According to Cozzolino, the key to his weight loss success on his pizza diet was that “fresh food is your medicine and when you eat a pizza, you don’t need anything else.”

 

Taking a quick look at his Instagram account, it looks like he has stuck with the pizza diet and is still cooking and eating them for his daily meals.

 

Can’t fault him, great pizza is addicting!

 

Of course, good exercise and supplementing the diet with other good meals helped Cozzolino to lose the weight.

 

So we must know, would you go on a Bocce’s Club Pizza diet? Are you already on a Bocce’s diet? How tasty would that be, and could you help yourself by not eating the whole pizza?

 

The struggle would be real, for sure. When you order our pizzas we have plenty of healthy options, including a gluten-free pizza.

 

Get your start on a pizza cleanse when you order from Bocce’s at one of our Amherst locations. Or if you aren’t lucky enough to still live in Buffalo, we can satisfy your hunger and craving for Buffalo’s best pizza when you order from our nationwide service.

 

 

Is There A Right Way To Hold And Eat Your Pizza?

Hold Your Pizza

By the time you think about how you hold your pizza when you eat it, it’s probably too late because it was so delicious, that it is already gone from your hand.

 

 

But there are pizza aficionados out there that worry about this sort of thing.

 

Those who are obsessed with perfection to the point where it can be considered an obsessive compulsive disorder.

 

Proving that you shouldn’t eat pizza unless you eat it a certain way.

 

 

Questions like, “You eat pizza with a fork and knife? What kind of human are you?” can be heard from those types of pizza traditionalists.

 

It’s almost like the scenario introduced from Dr. Suess’ in The Butter Battle Book – how to eat your bread with butter, and how a whole society was divided because of their different preferences.

 

So is there really a right way to hold and eat pizza?

 

According to a 19th century math genius named Carl Friedrich Gauss and his Theorema Egregium, or remarkable theorem, which states that the “curvature of a surface does not change if one bends the surface without stretching it.

 

And so when it comes to pizza, the Gaussian theorem implies that because the pizza is flat, that even when you bend it, one part will always remain flat.

 

 

When the pizza slice flops around the flat direction will be pointed sideways.

 

This isn’t helpful for eating your meal in a non-messy manner.

 

But because of Gauss’ theorem, we know that by folding the pizza slice sideways at the crust, you’re essentially forcing it to become flat in the other direction.

 

This way the tasty pizza points towards your mouth from the curvatures strengths so you’re not eating your pizza like Rudy.

 

 

Bocce Club Pizza is the best pizza in Buffalo to eat at any time and in any way. We promise we won’t judge how you eat your pizza, as long as it’s one of our original or specialty pies.
