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!
