Pizza Port - Carlsbad

571 Carlsbad Village
Carlsbad, CA 92008

Pizza Port is an awesome place if you want to relax and have fun eating pizzas and drinking beer. The restaurant is big, crowded, and parking is limited. The restaurant has a surf theme throughout the place and most of the seating is picnic table style. Pizza Port has many different beers on tap and they even brew their own beer. This is one of our favorite pizza joints for pizza packed with hearty toppings. What I love about their pizzas are the toppings and the flavor of the crust.

Portzel- giant handmade pretzel made from their wholegrain beer crust with sundried tomatoes, feta, garlic, basil & oregano.
We have been to Pizza Port many times but never tried the portzel until our recent visit. It pretty much tasted like the pizza dough served with marinara sauce & mustard on the side. I would bypass this and go straight for the pizzas!!
Pizza Roma - Canadian style bacon, pepperoni, sausage, salami, onions, olives, bell pepers & mushrooms.
One of the other cool things about Pizza Port is that they allow you to order pizzas half and half style. Pictured below on the top half of the pizza is the Pizza Roma. I would have to say that this is one of our favorite pizzas there. What's not to love about the various meats and vegetables.

Pizza Carlsbad - Pesto, mesquite grilled chicken, sundried tomatoes, artichoke hearts, & feta The other half of the pizza is the Pizza Carlsbad. By looking at the items on this pizza, it sounds like it should be a delicious pizza pie. In my opinion, the Pizza Carlsbad is not as good as the many others that Pizza Port has to offer. I think the feta and pesto on this pizza does not make the pizza as moist and saucy as the other one.
Here is a close up of the Pizza Carlsbad. Look at the chunks of artichokes and chicken...

Pizza Lahaina - Canadian style bacon, pineapple, bell peppers & onions
If you are a Hawaiian pizza lover, then this is the pizza for you! Whenever we are craving pizza and are down in the south OC area, this is our go-to place. There's a Pizza Port located in Carlsbad and San Clemente, but I think the Carlsbad location makes a better pizza.
