Gourmet Pizza in North County

I wanted to highlight great Pizza options in North County. The following two locations constantly use high quality ingredients and produce great crusts. They use Wood Fired and Coal Fired ovens respectively.

First up is Blue Ribbon Artisan Pizza in Encinitas.SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

Blue Ribbon is helmed by Chef Wade Hageman, who before opening Blue Ribbon in 2010 was the Executive Chef at the much loved and missed Blanca in Solana Beach.SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES


Blue Ribbons Harvest Moon Pizza – EVO, Butternut and Red Kuri Squash, Mozzarella, Goat Cheese, Fig Balsamic, and Arugula. A sweeter taste profile is countered with the slightbitterness of the Arugula.

Second up is The Privateer Coal Fired Pizza in Oceanside.l

The Privateer is just over a year old under Chef Hector Reyna.


Raen Pie – Prosciutto, Provolone, Arugula, Fiordilatte Mozzarella. I liked that the Arugula was dressed with EVO.
