Extreme Pizza, San Diego
San Diego, CA 92117
I just wanted a "quick" bite & this is exactly what I got. I was next door to refuel on some iced coffee for the day & didn't want the typical coffee cafe fare. I was just thinking to myself, "Why not grab a slice?" Well, if you're familiar w/ Extreme Pizza (which is my first time here)- there's a special displayed for 1 slice of pizza. You can get a 2 topping slice & a pint for $10. I let my eyes skim the menu board & didn't see anything advertised for a slice by itself. And that's why I ordered the Indee (Individual 8 inch) pizza. The gentleman taking my order mentioned my Yard Sale (Italian sausage, pepperoni, black olives, fresh mushrooms, green peppers, red onions, vine ripe tomatoes, tomato sauce, mozzarella & cheddar cheese) would be ready in 10 minutes. Whew! I ordered at 1:06 pm & it was seriously ready in 10 minutes. Not that I wanted to rush- I just wanted to make sure I was able to enjoy a feds nibbles & make it on time to an appointment nearby. And that I did! I thought it was the coolest thing to see actual tomato slices on each slice of pizza! The diced green peppers were a cool touch that added a bit of crunch to the Yard Sale. All of the tasty ingredients above weren't too heavy on the little slices that make up the 8 inch pizza. You can order gluten free, wheat dough, or classic. I think the gluten free is about $2 extra- depending on the size of pizza you'd like to order. Delivery is available as well. While I was enjoying my first slice, another patron walked in & asked if they had slices of pizza- which they did. I thought the slices were only available if you ordered their Special. Had I have known that- I would've ordered that. I wonder if I missed that being posted somewhere? :/ Anywho- I enjoyed my meal while people watching. There's outside tables & chairs as well.
We ordered 3 slices and were pretty dissapointed in the taste. Crust was crazy hard and the sauce wasn't too tasty. 3 slices of pizza with 1 drink $18 to me was way too much. 1st and last time we will eat here!
We had a coupon, 2 for 1, my daughter got a gluten-free pizza, I had a regular pizza, both were delicious! And believe me, my daughter knows good gluten-free Pizza versus bad gluten-free. My husband had a calzone & said he should have had pizza with us. I'll definitely go back. Great pizza!!
I ordered an individual 8" pizza with a soda and was disappointed. I ordered pepperoni, onion, and mushroom. Although I was very hungry, the pizza was ok at best. There was hardly any cheese in it at all! No ooey-gooey goodness at all And I am not an extra cheese on my pizza person-I never order extra; just the regular amount of cheese is fine. But this pie had hardly any. Disappointing.
Overall decent experience. While waiting for the Jewish Film Festival to start I decided to fill my belly up with something of more substance then popcorn and a large ICEE. The shopping center options consisted cold stones, buffalo wings and Extreme Pizza. It was quick and easy. The service was great. The lady made sure I was treated well and always check on me to see if I was ok. The atmosphere was vibrant and clean. The reason why I can't give this place five stars is because of the taste of the pizza. I ordered two slices of double pepperoni and both of them had a baking powder taste to them. I felt as if I was chewing on a science experiment. Because I was hungry and in a rush, I didn't make a big deal of it.
I love me some pizza and since I was diagnosed with Celiac's a few years back my heart has mourned the loss while I sought true gluten free restaurant pizza that didn't taste like cardboard. I found Extreme Pizza on a gluten free San Diego guide and I didn't have very high expectation but this place blew me away. The menu at Extreme Pizza is varied with custom, signature, specialty pies and other Italian fast food fare: calzones, salads, subs, and desserts. Not only do they have gluten free pizza but they also offer vegan options. We did the Screamin' Tomato pie with gluten free crust. The owner, Nezam, took the order and asked as he was ringing us up if the gluten free was for allergy reasons. He personally made ours to ensure that there would be no cross-contamination. That he went to those lengths was important to us and is one of those things any person with any allergy wants to hear from every restaurant they patronize. The Food Safety Certification sign on the front door meant that their kitchen meets the gluten free kitchen standards. As for the pizza itself? It was mouth watering. They advertise the dough as being Udi's and I have eaten a lot of Udi's and this crust was so much better than anything I'd ever had before. The entire experience was great and I keep asking my guy if we can go back.
Pretty large slices of Pizza!!! Good cheese and Pepperoni and light on the sauce... just the way I like it : )
THE BEST CHOCOLTE CHIP COOKIES IN THE WORLD reside at this place. I asked for a tub of the dough-owner cannot sell it to me :( I used to get pizza here (delivered) fairly regularly, but I have found some other local pizza places with better tasting crust. After all, it starts with a tasty crust. I did enjoy their interesting choices in pizzas, though (drag it through the garden, Paiai Pie), but I just got tired of the thin, kinda meh crust. I always return for a cookie treat. worth the $2 and change.
EP has a bomb looking menu but unfortunately I didn't get my grub on because Star Wars was getting ready to ramp up next door. The wife and I came in for their awesome craft beer selection and to have a seat instead of watching the local nerds have light saber battles in the parking lot after their erection subsided from the previous movie showing. It was all in good fun and I was incredibly pumped at how many bottled beers they had available. No Blue Moon for this guy. Gimme that triple IPA.
We love Extreme Pizza they have the best delivery people. And they really care about getting your order right and giving you the discounts and coupons. The food is great the rest of the pizza is super awesome I recommend Extreme Pizza highly over any other Pizza chain in our area yum enjoy
Extreme rip-off pizza. Dominos' quality but nice Italian restaurant prices. Crust tasteless looked prefab. Ordered two pizzas 14 inch, Canadian bacon and pineapple and another tomato with basil. With a 50% off of the second pizza bill was $37.50. They charged $23.00 for the tomato and basil pizza. Pizza was just ok. Won't go back.
