To make a pizza that keeps people talking, eating, and sharing with family & friends, you have to start in the neighborhood. At least that's the way we saw it in 2006 when we opened the very first location. Back then, the Founder started a tradition of taste that would eventually deliver Cocelli Pizza into the national spotlight.
Founded on artisan recipes, we earned a distinct reputation for quality taste for the serious pizza eater. Starting with our daily hand-tossed dough, mixed with extra virgin olive oil, our award-winning pies are then topped with our delicious sauce, made from freshly-packed, vine-ripened tomatoes and covered with Real mozzarella cheese. Each pie is then finished with only market-fresh toppings — from the little pepperoni that cups and curls on each pizza, to snow white mushrooms and crisp green peppers, to savoury pepperoni and farm fresh sausage.
The name "Cocelli" represents our high quality products, including a wide variety of artisan pizzas made to signature taste standards. Fresh, made-to-order stromboulis, house baked subs, salads, and appetizers perfect the Cocelli experience. Today, Cocelli Pizza has grown to 2 locations with each one making a positive impact.
As a family-owned business, we know that the community is just a part of our extended family. We are involved with everything from little league teams, to school programs, and non-profit organizations to make a positive impact on the communities we serve. In one word, we are your "neighbours." Call us anytime to see what we can do together to make someone smile in our neighbourhood.
Did you know that extra virgin olive oil is baked right into our dough?
Extra virgin olive oil is the highest quality classification of all the olive oils and is produced mainly in the Eastern Mediterranean region. The aroma and taste of our artisan dough comes from this unique family recipe.
Specific spring wheats are blended to provide a consistent quality, high gluten flour for our pizza dough. It is this quality that gives our crust the full taste in every bite. The dough is proofed and hand-tossed each day for every order for a freshly-baked rise to golden perfection.
Did you know that Cocelli Pizzas are made with 100% Real Wisconsin mozzarella cheese?
Many point to Wisconsin's high-quality,limestone-filtered water supply and its outstanding alfalfa, which contribute mightily to the quality of the milk. These factors continue to draw cheese making artisans from Italy, Switzerland, France and other European cheese making regions.
Others point to the proximity of the milk supply to the cheese makers.
Still others cite the prevalence of skilled third- and fourth-generation family farmers and the unparalleled infrastructure supporting both dairying and cheese making there. Indeed, for all these reasons, Cocelli Pizza serves every pizza with mozzarella cheese.
Did you know that Cocelli pizza sauce is private-labeled?
During the harvest season, these vine-ripened tomatoes are rushed from farm fields of California and are cooked immediately to the desired taste.The traditional one-stage process is designed to maximize fresh tomato flavour at the expense of additional cost.
Our pizza sauce is only made from freshly- packed tomatoes, not the re-manufacturing process which diminishes a tomato's natural compounds that give it its distinctiveflavour. Knowing the truth will help you make knowledgeable decisions about what you eat and what you serve your family.
