not so basic in {san diego}...


Amid a bustling bar scene in a cool industrial chic space, sits a pizza joint/bar-in-one like no other. As a recent East Coast transplant and pizza L.O.V.E.R, I'm gonna go out on a limb and say that Basic just might have the best pizza in San Diego. Though I haven't lived here very long, I've had my fair share of SD eats and Basic REALLY reminds me of East Coast style pies. The crust is unbelievable - super thin and crispy while chewy. My only complaint is that the cheese is processed, not fresh, mozzerella. But the rest of the pie is so good that it still works beautifully.

Final thoughts...4 out of 5 happy ladies! Basic reminds me some of the best wood oven pizzerias in New York and CT. Thank you, Basic, for providing a small taste of pizza from back East. I'll be back regularly to get my fix!
