Our 5 Favorite Del Mar Pizza Restaurants

Enjoy the sand, sea breeze, and the California sun with a slice of pizza in one hand and a cold drink in the other at these pizza places.

I really can't think of a better way than to relax by the beach with one of mankind's best culinary inventions: the pizza. (Come on, WHO doesn't like pizza?)

Del Mar, with its lovely beaches and featuring some of the best pizza places in the city, is a great place to just kick back, relax, and bask in San Diego's endless sunshine.

We've done the research for you (burp!), so just read on to see what's in store for you.

CUCINA enoteca Del Mar

CUCINA enoteca Del Mar may possibly be one of the most patronized restaurants in this side of the city. This restaurant, located in a whimsically rustic setting serves classic Italian dishes using some of the best organic ingredients in California. Everything is made in house, from their pastas to the cheese they use—they bake their own breads and stuff their own sausages. Excellent food, sustainable cooking.

One of Cucina’s best offerings is the most beloved pie in the world: pizza. Favorites in this restaurant are Pizza Italiana—prosciutto di parama, arugula, fresh tomatoes, and mozzarella lying on a bed of tomato sauce, and possibly the best Pizza Quattro Formaggi this writer has ever tasted. The four-cheese pizza is an interesting dish, as every pizza restaurant has its own combination. CUCINA uses gorgonzola, bellpaese, scamorza, and mozzarella. The result? The salty gorgonzola is balanced by the creaminess of the scamorza and mozzarella, the different cheese flavors subtly complementing each other, producing a rich, buttery whole.

CUCINA enoteca Del Mar also has a great wine list and cocktails to go with you pizzas. If you’re dining in, make sure to ask the waiter for pairings to make your pizza experience a great one.

Del Mar Pizza

Del Mar serves great subs, pastas and salads right by the beach, but the star of the show is, as the name implies, pizza! If you crave pizza by the California coast, then Del Mar Pizza is your best bet. Order the Brooklyn Pizza—pepperoni, mushrooms, mozzarella cheese baked into a crispy yet soft crust, topped with fresh garlic. Carnivores will appreciate the Meat Lovers Pizza, topped with homemade meatballs, sausages, pepperoni, and gooey, stringy mozzarella cheese. Another pie that deserves a shout-out is the Mexicano—chorizo, jalapenos, red onions, and cilantro, strong flavors balanced with creamy mozzarella and drizzled with olive oil on top.

Del Mar also makes a great chopped salad (add avocados to it if you like ‘em) to go along with your pizzas.

Vegan, veggie and gluten-free options available.
