Catering by Boston’s North End Pizza

This past week it was that time again for an office luncheon, this time with the grindz provided by Boston’s North End Pizza Bakery. Boston’s currently has eight locations on Oahu, including Kaimuki, Kaneohe, Kailua, Manoa, Hawaii Kai, Pearlridge, Kapolei and Wahiawa.

The spread presented here today is from their newest location in Kaneohe, located in Windward Centre, a small strip mall adjacent to the Makai side of Windward Mall, right behind Zippy’s. Thankfully the Kaneohe location delivers, which was a nice touch for us busy bodies. What can I say? Kaneohe rules! You know it. lol

Getting right to it, our spread from Boston’s North End Pizza included a simple tossed green salad…

This included a basic Italian dressing..

Notice there’s Ranch dressing packed in that set as well, which is intended to accompany Boston’s Buffalo Wings…

Now let’s REALLY get to business, starting with our first “pie”, which is actually considered Boston’s “Cheese Sticks”, the Mozzarella…

Boston’s North End Pizza – Mozzarella Cheese Sticks

Notice, unlike the rest of the pizzas following this, the Mozzarella Cheese Pie is cut into rectangles, making each serving a “stick” instead of a “slice”.

Now let’s talk Pizza!…

Boston’s North End Pizza – “Big Papi”

As you can see, this is a “meat lovers” special, including ham, peperoni and Portuguese sausage. Whoah!

Absolutely my favorite of the bunch is the “Big Red”…

Boston’s North End Pizza – “Big Red”: a unique pizza loaded with spinach, garlic, tomatoes and mushrooms

Boston’s Special…

Back-to-basics ‘Roni ‘n Cheese…

Boston’s “Roni”

Boston’s “RMBO”, which would be an acronym for “Roni, Mushrooms, B? and Olives

If you click on the RMBO photo, my apologies: I forgot to reduce the image size for the typical computer monitor you’re reading this on. Hence you’ll be dealing with a whopping 3072×2304 pixel image. Whoah! But really, that’s actually the scale of these pizzas. THEY’RE HUGE! While I didn’t take a tape measure to them, I’m estimating (now that I do have a tape measure) that they measure at least 20″ in diameter each. Take out your tape measure or yard stick and measure 20″. If that isn’t a massive pizza to you, than I dunno’. That’s massive to me.

Also consider that there were two to three identical pizzas stacked in boxes beneath each one shown. Folks, we’re talkin’ major PIZZAFEST!

Finally, we have a basic Cheese Pie…

That rounds up the grindz supplied by Boston’s North End Pizza Bakery. But really, is that enough food for you? Nah, I didn’t think so. So along with that, we also had this fantastic fruit bowl to compliment the meal…

Diner C’s “Masarap” Fruit Bowl: (nicely ripe ‘n sweet!) Melon, Watermelon and Canteloupe

And for dessert, a Sundae Ice Cream Station! Wheeeee-haaaaawwwwww!!!!! lol…

You gotta’ love these here Keebler® brand sweet waffle cone ice cream bowls….

Kawaii nei?! lol

The ice cream we served with this was Meadow Gold’s back-to-basics Vanilla, the one they sell at Costco for like $7 per 1.25 gallon tub. Worked out GREAT!

Well, let’s plate it up and sample some, cuz!…

Boston’s Tossed Green Salad, Buffalo Wings and Diner C’s “Masarap” Fruits

And the stars of the show (<—click to view alternate angle)…

Boston’s North End Pizza – Cheese Stick, “Big Red” (Spinach, Garlic, Mushrooms ‘n Olives), Boston’s Special and slice of Pepperoni with Mushrooms and Olives

Finally for dessert, my idea of what an Ice Cream Sundae should look like, given the toppings provided…

Pomai’s Ice Cream Sundae

It would have been nice if there were Maraschino Cherries to top it off, but who am I to say? Beggers can’t be choosers. lol

So how is it? The t0ssed green salad was very fresh and crispy, with a basic what tasted liked bottled Italian Vinaigrette dressing.

The buffalo wings were very moist and tender, although I didn’t care for the breading, which was heavily fortified with what tasted like Ceyenne Pepper. Zoinks! I rather have the classic style Buffalo wings that are simply deep fried with no breading and then tossed with “Wing Sauce”.

Diner C’s “Masarap” fruits were, as advertised, MASARAP! (delicious in Filipino)

All the pizzas were also delicioso. I particularly enjoyed the “Big Red”, which is the one with generous helpings of Spinach, Garlic, Tomatoes and Mushrooms. YUMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM!

Diner A had a problem with the middle of the crust on all the pizzas, which he complained was too soggy and undercooked, but that didn’t bother me. I think what it is, is that being Boston’s crust is very thin, this pizza is best eaten fresh out of the oven. While they arrived at our office still piping hot, the steaming effect probably caused the inner part of the crust to get soggy. I didn’t notice that, but he did.

I also really enjoyed their Mozzarella “Cheese Sticks”, which were heavily laced with Italian herbs. Another YUMMMMMM to that!

This was a nice change to our usual Pizza Hut Pizza parties. Personally, I’m more of a deep-dish pizza fan, so Pizza Hut, as “generic” as it is, is still my favorite all-around go-to Pizza. Yet Boston’s North End Pizza is a refreshing thin crust change.

It must also be noted that the Kaneohe Boston’s location gave us a $5 discount on each pie due to our bulk order. Nice.

With that, I give Boston’s North End Pizza a satisfactory 3-SPAM Musubi rating.

My ichiban pick for the perfect “pie” on Oahu still goes to North Shore Farms Neapolitan Grilled Pizza…

North Shore Farms Pizza Margherita

Good gosh, now I’m craving pizza. Aren’t you? lol

    Wow! Where do you work? I wish my workplace would do that, even once or twice a year! That’s-a-lotta-pizza! The big red *does* look very yummy! Have to agree on the Buffalo wings though…that’s definitely not the traditional wings. Thanks for the great pics and review, will have to give that place (in Kaneohe) a try when I visit next month!

    Sounds like you and your coworkers have a great time at work! Love the variety of pizzas at Bostons. This post reminded me of our “Ice Cream Social” at my working place. We did the ice cream sundae with the waffle bowls, too!! Way fun and everybody had smiles on their faces.

    Pomai, this company party I must diet ahead for about two weeks to ready myself for this big bash. I will not eat dinner after party for another two weeks also. Where did the you get those ice cream bowls?

    It wasn’t fair for me to judge the pizza about being soggy, since we ate it a good 30 minutes after it arrived, not including the delivery time. The flavor was all there but the soggy crust threw me off. I’m sure I would have a different opinion if we ate it right out of the oven.

    Two days after that I went to a Pizza Hut party, had thin crust New York style pizzas and OD’d that night!

    I want to work where you work! The food looks ONO!
    I think I must talk to my co-workers about having a pot-luck soon…
    Love your blog!

    A hui hou,

    Carey Ann, hope you can convince your coworkers to hold your own pot-luck sometime soon. It’s a great workplace morale booster!

    Diner A, I have yet to try Pizza Hut’s New York style pizza. I was always curious. It’s one of the cheaper ones on the menu, too.

    Michael, I think they got the sugar waffle cone Ice Cream bowls from either Safeway or Foodland. On sale.

    Deanna, our ice cream station was simple, yet tasted great! I especially liked the crumbled Oreo Cookie topping.

    Ann, yeah, the breading on the Buffalo Wings didn’t work for me. I prefer it the traditional way. It also had way too much Ceyenne Pepper in it.

    My favorite at Boston’s Pizza is the white spinach, garlic, anchovies and mushrooms.

    Seeing the pizzas topped with the sliced tomatoes reminds me of a place called Chico’s and they had a pizza called the Hometowner, Canadian Bacon, Mushroom, and after it was baked they put thin slices of fresh tomatoes all over the top. It had the best fresh and hot taste.

    Yum, I love Boston’s! I always get the spinach, mushroom, and garlic, but been meaning to try the Big Red.
