New pizza choices in O side/ Carlsbad

Wow thanks Bronx pizza. THey have trained numerous North county pizza guys, to include Flippin, Knockouts and now Brooklyn Boyz. While I enjoy KO/Flippin, they have become way to expansion oriented and their pizzas seem to be getting thinner by the second. I appreciate a thin crust but I don not appreciate thin cheese and almost no sauce. Pretty soon a KO/Flippin pizza will way less than the box.

Enter Brooklyn boyz and Pizarro. Two different styles but both very tasty. Brooklyn is very similar to bronx and KO for that matter, however they don't seem to be as skimpy on the toppings. Similar flavors but just more and thus tastier. These guys should prosper.

I am currently addicted to Pizarro's pizza. I worry because they are in a notoriously poor performing space but the pizza is what dominos or papa johns should be like. I know neither of those places makes a pizza that you or I would want to eat. However, I don't always want a NY style very thin crust pizza. SOmetimes I want a more substantial pizza. I am not talking Chicago dd, but just a normal pizza. Pizarro's is that pizza for me. I have ordered about six pies and they have all been tasty. I would not suggest ordering extra cheese because these guys load it on. My only complaint about pizarro's would be an occasional bit too thick crust. That said, their crust is delicious, it has just a hint of sweetness. I am eating a slice of sausage pizza right now. Here is a big plus, their sausage is actually sausage, not disks nor pellets.

Booklyn boyz is off Jefferson and VIsta way just east of the 5 and north of the 78 , take the Jefferson exit off the 78. Pizzaros is off el camino real just north of Vista way.
