Best Pizza in the San Diego Area
Hi Folks -
Before I get roasted for the subject line... let me give you the understanding that I am from New Jersey, I spent 30 years having the best pizza in the world living out there, and now I am dealing with what's here in San Diego.
Now then, the spots that I whole heartedly recommend are good spots. They are not exactly like the pizza found in NJ/NY or Chicago but I would suggest these spots when you are dying for some good pizza out on the west coast.
I will start with NJ/NY style thin crust pizza.
The pizza joints I would recommend for this style is called KnockOut Pizzeria. They are found in San Diego(Mira Mesa area), and Carlsbad.
They have a respectable version of the thin crust. They make an 18" pie with your basic toppings and a few strange things, but the owners are from the NY area. The only comments I have is that it's a little thinner than the standard NY/NJ pizza, but it's still better than the other chains.
If you want really tasty Chicago-style deep dish pizza, I would suggest a restaurant called The Spot in La Jolla (sounds like La Hoya), CA, which is in the same area as San Diego.
They have a fantastic crust, with some fresh tomatoes and everything is just delicious! Take your time at the place, order a beer or two or a soda, and just enjoy the food. Their pizza was the first one I found in San Diego that was actually really GOOD!
If you visit the left coast down in San Diego, stop by those shops and enjoy!
