Blue Ribbon Artisan Pizzeria Restaurant Review

: Wade Hageman, formerly of Blanca, and his wife Kristi have created a neighborhood gem in Encinitas that mixes a San Francisco savvy vibe with a laid-back beach town energy. Expect to find Hageman himself at the wood-fired brick oven, carefully tending to the thin-crusted pizzas. Nibble on black-seed popcorn sprinkled with truffle salt and Parmigiano Reggiano, or La Quercia Rossa prosciutto with Pommery mustard, house-made pickles and California artisan cheese. Move quickly to the burrata with arugula, then order up a piping hot pie like the Americana with fresh mozzarella, gaeta olives and artisan pepperoni. Organic and sustainable wines dominate the list, and compelling craft beers on tap make for a nice companion to the gourmet pizzas. Hageman’s farm-to-table approach works like a dream in this low-fi setting, where you can still expect quality ingredients at reasonable prices.
