Pizza is a favorite meal in most households––even considered its own food group by kids! We’ve put together a curated list of where to get the very best pizza for delivery (or pick-up), and every one of these pizzas has been taste tested and comes highly recommended by families. This supreme list includes at least one recommendation in every corner of San Diego, so you’ll be sure to find the perfect pie in your part of town. Phone numbers are included for your convenience, so dial up your nearest pizza delivery joint and support local restaurants while providing some delicious comfort food for your family.

Bronx Pizza

This Hillcrest pizzeria has a cult following and is at the top of this list because it comes in as the most recommended pizza joint in town. It’s a simple place with NY-style thin-crust pies and calzones, but its loyal fans keep going back again and again. Unfortunately, they don’t deliver and it’s a cash only, pick-up only spot.

Mountain Mike's Pizza

Authentic and award-winning Neapolitan-style pizza is why this place comes so highly recommended. It’s a small family owned shop that keeps getting better with each of their expansions.

URBN North Park

New Haven-style pizza made over a coal fire is one of my family’s favorites! With their craft pizza combinations like fried eggplant, their famous garlic mashed potato & bacon and even a vegan pie, they’ve got something for everyone. Their polpetta (meatball) pie is my family’s personal favorite.
