Pizzeria Oceano Washes Ashore in Lantana

What that means in your mouth is house-made mozzarella and sausage, the latter using the shoulders of naturally raised Berkshire pigs. It means organic produce from Swank Farms and other local growers, and a tomato sauce made from
organic tomatoes. And it means the sauce and cheese and pizza dough are made fresh each day.
Kerprich's motto is simple: "No frills, great food, get it!" So the ever-changing menu sports a couple of salads, stromboli and small roster of pizzas, perhaps a pie with some of that house-made sausage, roasted onion, mozzarella, chili oil, and spinach or a nouveau affair of organic potatoes, comté cheese, mozzarella, garlic, onion, rosemary and crème. Prices range from $12 to $15.
Wash them down with a changing selection of wines (all around $20 a bottle) and craft beers (right now including Narragansett and Old Chump Scottish Ale, next week to feature boutique Japanese brews).
"Every neighborhood needs a good pizzeria," Kerprich says. "And we do it right. I don't want to feed the masses."
