My Favorite NY Pizza in San Diego

zjarrett | Apr 8, 2007 09:07 PM

I've been reading on chowhound for years now and when I moved to San Diego from the Bay Area last year I scoured the boards looking for the bests of my favorite foods. I hadn't been able to find really good NY style pizza until I found Bronx Pizza in Hillcrest. Bronx is good I guess but not really like the places I used to go to back east (I was born in Brooklyn). Last night however I found the place! No one has mentioned it on the board yet so I have to give everybody a heads up if you want genuinly good pizza in San Diego. Next to Toro Sushi on mission gorge rd. is Pizza Etc, A taste of Brooklyn. Its a real pizzeria...seriously. They even have zeppolis which I've never seen in california before. The owner Nunzio is a wiseguy type from Brooklyn himself, he's got the NY attitude for sure but he's a nice guy if you chat him up. All his recipes are family recipes even the cannoli cream. Couldnt recommend trying the pie here enough.
