Pizza Nova

Another outstanding dinner at Pizza Nova in Point Loma! Here’s an excellent baked macaroni & cheese au gratin. Made with my favorite cavatappi pasta, cheddar and gruyere cheeses and bacon. All baked off in their wood burning oven. Also shown is one of the best orders of calamari I’ve had in SoCal. Love the dipping sauces!

Outstanding pizzas and salads at Pizza Nova in Point Loma!  This pie is simply called, “Italian Meat”…


Pizza Nova

One of my favorite restaurants in the Point Loma and Harbor Drive areas is Pizza Nova.  They have been serving up some of San Diego’s best wood-fired pizzas, pastas and salads since they opened their first location in 1990.  Pizza Nova has four locations now throughout SoCal.  

Here’s the outstanding “Italian Meat” pizza, made with pepperoni, sopressata salami, applewood smoked bacon and Italian sausage.  This is a hearty, protein rich pie and is always one of my usuals.  Also shown below is the Baked Macaroni & Cheese Au Gratin.  Tillamook cheddar and gruyere cheeses enveloping an excellent cavatappi pasta.  I just love the mouth feel of this type of pasta.  Kind of like a corkscrew.  It’s all topped with panko crumbs and Parmesan, then baked in a wood-burning oven.  I highly recommend adding bacon.  Such a remarkable dish!
