I am finally feeling more comfortable living here in North County, San Diego because I have a NY Pizzeria to satisfy my NY pizza cravings.
Knockout Pizzeria is located in Carlsbad and according to google it has several more locations (Oceanside, San Marcos). My husband and I first tried Knockout after a walk on the beach. They offer a deal where you get 2 slices of pizza (the first time we had tomato basil and pepperoni) with a drink for $5. Not a bad deal but it's more like a snack than a meal. My husband and I laughed pretty hard when we read that one pizza is supposed to feed 3-4 people. We easily go through one pizza ourselves and are always disappointed when there are no leftovers. A pizza is 16" and goes for around $16-18. The crust is really thin so we're able to eat a lot more pizza than we could normally.
We've ordered 2 pizzas since that first visit. Both times we got the tomato basil pizza because it was so satisfying. They make this pizza with garlic and olive oil instead of tomato sauce and have plenty of chopped basil on top of the pizza with thin slices of tomato.
If you've never had NY pizza and live out here; try it! There's nothing like it. I find it addictive. While I love other pizza places like Oggis and Leucadia pizza (my favorite is still my own pizza), I grew up on NY pizza and can't live without it. Thank goodness for Knockout Pizzeria.
