Looking for We all know about the famous deep dish pizza in Chicago and New York, but what about getting some good ol’ pie here in Southern California? Forget about a chain restaurant, and feast your eyes on this authentic pie from Regents Pizzeria!
Located in San Diego, CA in the UCSD area, Regents Pizzeria makes a delicious, piping hot Chicago inspired deep dish pizza with the freshest ingredients, tons of dough, mounds of cheese, and toppings galore. They invited my family in to try out some of their menu items, there’s really nothing like it here in SoCal!
Ok so I would call in the deep dish pizza ahead of time, it does take 45 minutes minimum because it’s made on the spot. We ordered a few different things by managements recommendation, starting with these garlic knots. Ohmygahhhhh. DON’T SKIP THESE.
We had the toasted goat cheese salad, it was a lovely mixed green and apple salad with goat cheese and and a citrus vinaigrette. We ate it too fast! We also tried the Regents Hot Caprese, which was amazing. I’ve never had a hot version of this salad, the mozzarella is served warm in marinara sauce with a basil chiffonade and balslamic vinaigrette, unique and delicious!
My kids got to play with some pizza dough while we were waiting, ask your server and they’ll totally bring you some. She was making her own pizza here!
The deep dish pizza we ordered is called the ‘Master‘. They’re not lying. It’s like a supreme pizza, only times 5. Look at this crust!
I really like the lively, upbeat and family friendly atmosphere of the restaurant. It’s pretty fun, they’ve got TV’s all around so you know the game was on, and I especially like that I don’t have to tell my kids to shush a million times, the place is always packed!
We went ahead and ended the night with tiramisu. To say we were stuffed is an understatement, so we took a couple bites and saved the rest. Divine.
The next time you’re in the mood for some authentic Chicago style deep dish pizza, make your way over to Regents Pizzeria. With amazing food and tons of beers and wines on tap, it’s a great place to gather and enjoy an evening!
Good food. Good atmosphere. Good fun. Deep dish style.
