Pizza in La Jolla

San Diego is many towns rolled into one. It is all of the following:

  • A coffee town
  • A beer town
  • A sports town
  • A foodie town
  • A dog town
  • A beach town

It is all that and so much more. Could it also be a pizza town? Of course it is. But that’s way too easy. Let’s narrow things down a bit to a particular community. And one of the best San Diego communities is La Jolla. 

The Best Pizza in La Jolla

Not only could we not tell you which is the single best pizza in La Jolla, we couldn’t even pick a best pizza shop on any given street in La Jolla. The best pizza in La Jolla is extremely subjective. It all depends on who you ask. While we can’t tell you which is the absolute best of the pizza places in La Jolla, every local you ask certainly can. Their favorite is the absolute best in La Jolla California. If you really want to know where to get pizza in La Jolla CA, don’t ask the locals. There are more opinions than there are pizza places. You can’t live that way. Don’t worry, you’ve come to the right place. Let us help you narrow it down.

This requires very little description. I’ve already said too much. They bake it. You take it home and heat it up. This is one of the best options anywhere when you want a great margarita pizza without the restaurant. American Pizza Mfg. is located right smack dab on the corner of La Jolla Boulevard and Marine Street, and it’s catty cornered (or perhaps it’s better to say that it’s diagonally across the street) from Rigaberto’s Taco Shop.

  • Everyday Hours: 3-8:15 P.M., Closed Mondays
  • Address: 7402 La Jolla Blvd., La Jolla, CA 92037
  • Phone: (858) 246-6756

Conclusion

Pizza is not the only great food in the city. Don’t get us started with Thai food in La Jolla. Or do get us started. Whatever you’re craving from vegetarian to meatatarian and everything in between, the La Jolla pizza scene has you covered.
