The Five Best Places to Get Pizza in San Diego

San Diego

While pizza is a dish that originated in Europe and is highly associated with Italy, it has rapidly become an American Favorite. Every major city has some type of pizza tradition and there are always several pizzerias that have earned local acclaim because of the unique ways that they prepare their pizza. San Diego has found itself in the crosshairs of a lot of pizza lovers who ware skeptical about its ranking on TripAdvisor as one of the top 10 cities in America to get pizza. The truth is TripAdvisor may have been on to something. If you love pizza and are traveling to San Diego in the near future, here are five pizza joints that you may want to check out.

Pizzeria Luigi

If you are a truly authentic pizza lover, you are probably like me, and you understand that the best pizzas often come out of some of the most unassuming locations. This is definitely the case when it comes to Pizzeria Luigi. But, don’t let the storefront appearance get in the way of you trying what they have to offer. Pizzeria Luigi is often time s compared to Bronz Pizza for its rendition of the New York-style pizza pie. Now, this joint is definitely for the serious pizza eaters who can appreciate the art of making a good pizza. Once you get past the front door, the experience is delightful.

Bronx Pizza

Bronx Pizza is another pizzeria that has an unassuming external physical appearance, but curb appeal has no bearing on the taste of a pizza pie. This is the place that you will likely find most transplanted New Yorkers who have found themselves in San Diego. Bronx Pizza has earned a lot of awards since it opened in 1997, having represented San Diego multitudinous times on several pizza lists. You can go wrong with this establishment if you are the no-frills type of person. Only a true New Yorker will understand the importance of this joint.

Blue Ribbon Artisan Pizzeria

While the presentation of this storefront is not elaborate, it is a step up from the previous two. The joint is designed for customers to dine in or sit on the patio. What is interesting about this is that it is run by a certified chef. Wade Hageman left his position at one of the finest dining kitchens in San Diego to open up this pizzeria. Go figure. The spot has become known for offering some of the best-handcrafted pizzas in the city. Furthermore, Hageman’s knowledge of seasonal spices and herbs means that his pizzas offer seasonal shifts in tastes and aroma. Most reviews on this establishment praise the unique tastes created by Chef Hageman.

Lefty’s Chicago Pizzeria

It is only fitting that the title has the names “Lefty” and “Chicago” in the same sentence. Only something associated with the city of Chicago would have the name Lefty in it. Lefty’s has two locations in San Diego and when it comes to Chicago style pizza, this pizzeria dominates the market. Their thin-crust pies are highly recommended by anyone who frequents the establishment. For those mid-westerners who have developed a taste for that thin crust pizza pie that is pretty much synonymous with Chicago, San Diego has something that will satiate your hunger. Here you can get the Chicago taste without the Chicago weather. And this Lefty promises not to break your thumb.

Pizzeria Bruno Napoletano

When it comes to baking the perfect pizza pie, it is not only about the ingredients and how the dough is prepared. Anyone who knows about making a good pizza will tell you that the oven that is used plays a vital role in producing a great pie. When it comes to ovens, most experts will tell you that you need a brick oven or at least something that mimics the heat conduction of a brick oven. Well, Pizzeria Bruno Napoletano is a spot that is inspired by Phoenix’s Pizzeria Bianco. This pizzeria is one of the first in San Diego dedicated to preparing true Neapolitan-style pizzas. All of the pizzas or baked ina Naples-sourced oven. One of the things that definitely stand out here is the consistency in texture and taste time and time again.
