Jon’s Place For Kosher Pizza In Boca Raton

We were driving around Boca Raton on Thanksgiving trying to find a place to eat lunch.  In actuality we were actually just getting out of the house so we wouldn’t be asked to contribute any assistance to the Thanksgiving meal.  But while we ducked out we kind of got hungry.  The four of us, father in law, brother in law, my son, and I decided we should find a pizza place that was open, even if we had to waste hours in doing so.  After driving around aimlessly it dawned on me…..The Kosher Pizza Place would probably be opened.

Jon’s Place is tucked away in Boca Raton near the Olive Garden and Kosher Marketplace.  It had been like 5 years since I last ate at this establishment.  I think the last time I went there was on Christmas, for the obvious reason of them being the only place open once again.  Jon’s serves to the Kosher community around it.  For thos of you who haven’t had Kosher Pizza before, it is a bit different.  You see… where regular pizza has dough, sauce and cheese, Kosher Pizza has dough, sauce, cheese and a rabbinical blessing.

I ordered a slice cause it occurred to me that I didn’t really like the taste last time.  When I bit into it, my previous occurrence was accurate.  The pizza really just didn’t do it for me.  If I was someone who led a Kosher life, and didn’t know other pizza, maybe this would be considered decent…I don’t know.  It was very bland and the sauce was kind of rough to swallow.  Everyone else in the place seemed to really enjoy it other then us, so it is hard to knock the place since I am not a member of the orthodox community.  Perhaps they are using what is considered the best ingredients that they have access to, which I doubt in my opinion.

In my opinion Jon’s Place gets 2 out of 8 slices.  I would love to have someone who only eats Kosher Pizza to message me info@worstpizza.com and compare this to other pizza slices they have had.

PS what a funny sign to have on their counter.

    There's something in Mozzarella cheese that makes it unkosher. The cheese kosher places use is usually to rubbery. And of course the sauce has no pork or animal fat.

    When I was a kid, I remember there was a Kosher/Halal pizza place on the next block from where I lived on Long Island. I really don't remember the pizza tasting all that different that non-kosher pizza, but I always did think it was cool that you could get a slice of pizza and a falefel pita in the same place…

    You have no understanding of what Kosher means. It has nothing to do with a rabbinical blessing or anything to do with a rabbi at all. And, yes, Mozzarella can be kosher.

    I definitely agree I do not fully understand what Kosher means. Would love for you to explain it to everyone here to help!

    Thanks

    since i am an orthodox jew and only eat kosher, i feel i am qualified to add my opinion to this article. i think the pizza at this place sucks; i don't think it has anything to do with the fact that it's kosher. i have had much much better kosher pizza. jon's place just serves bad pizza, period.

    I live near Jons and even though there are several other kosher pizza stops in the area, I like Jons pizza the best. My kids actually won't eat the other pizza places pizza, even when we got a free pie (and we are Jews!!)
    My wife likes the calzones, my kids like the ziti, lasagna and sicilians. I like the bagels that they make to order.

    Kosher pizza can be just like non kosher pizza. You can use the best ingredients to make a delicious pie or you can use the cheapest ingredients to produce a pie that is not even eatible. The only criteria for Kosher is that the ingredients must be certified Kosher and the establishment must adhere to Kosher laws. If you don't enjoy pizza at a Kosher establishment, you must question the owners choice of ingredients, prep methods, the quality of the pizza oven used and the handling of product. Over 50% of the items sold in national supermarket chains are certified Kosher. No excuse for a bad pie, Kosher or not.

    Not at all correct. The issue is the rennet in cheeses. Kosher cheese just uses vegetarian rennet, and carries a guarantee from the rabbinical authorities that only vegetarian rennet was used in its manufacture. Of course, Jon’s also uses “chalav yisrael,” but that is a separate issue.

    Found this while looking to see if Jon’s place had a website. LMAO. As someone who spent the first half of their life eating non-kosher, I can say absolutely that yes, Jon’s place is horrible! I think it’s the lack of any competition. I keep praying that someone will open a competing store in the area which will either drive him out of business, or force him to up his game. It seems to me that a lot of Kosher places just don’t bother trying because hey, where else are you going to eat? (Case in point, Lower East Side in Orlando, FL).

    Places with competition have great pizza, and the ingredients have nothing to do with it. You can get awesome kosher pizza in NY or LA. Jewforpizza below needs to try the Calzone or Ziti at Cafe Roma on Amsterdam and 85th street (Upper West Side) or better yet, their Sicilian pizza is to die for.

    And here I am now, looking for Jon’s number because I am about to order a pizza pie for the family. Hey, where else am I going to eat! Not like I have a choice.

    You say I am not at all correct, but then you explain that I am 100% correct. The rennet makes the cheese un-kosher.

    you are not educated if you think the only difference between kosher and nonkosher is that it is blessed, it is not even blessed! do some research before you write an article

    Being from NYC, living in Florida for 20 years and eating pizza for 47 years, discovering Jon’s Place has been a blessing, from the sauce to the crust by far the best pizza in south Fla, Kosher or not Kosher, a must eat for any pizza lover, a wide selection with a very accommodating service staff, including the owner Jon whom made us feel like we were guests in his own house.

    Kosher pizza can and should be as good as non kosher. A crust made from scratch with kosher ingredients is exactly the same as crust made from scratch with non kosher ingredients(guaranteed Most regular pizza places use flour that is certified kosher). The same for the sauce(fresh garlic, olive oil, san marzano tomatoes,oregano,ALL kosher).The catch is the cheese,however there are very high quality kosher cheese(as good as non kosher). Jon doesn’t use quality anything, he uses the cheapest of everything. He doesn’t even use all mozzerella cheese, he mixes it with muenster.

    My mother is Orthodox & keeps kosher (I don’t) & orders from Jon’s constantly. She’s ordering it as I type. It’s terrible but every kosher pizza I’ve had tastes the same. It’s all super oily, limp crusted blech.
