Mr. Moto Pizza was established in 2015 in the Pacific Beach neighborhood of San Diego, California. Mr. Moto’s objective is to share his authentic New York style pizza to the hungry West Coast—but with a little twist! His characteristically thin-crust pies feature a chewy outer edge (or “handle”) that is remarkably fluffy! Everyday Mr. Moto and his team of pizza aficionados employ a secret recipe to make this one-of-kind dough in-house. The perfectly kneaded-dough is tossed by hand and topped with a wide array of fresh, gourmet ingredients. In just one year’s time the technique has earned Mr. Moto great reviews, loyal customers, and critical acclaim as Mr. Moto Pizza proudly boasts the award for “San Diego’s Best Gourmet Pizza” since 2016. The San Diego based family-owned Pizza Parlor has since opened locations in North Park, Point Loma, La Jolla, and will debut a 5th location in Ocean Beach in 2019. Mr. Moto projects opening even more locations in the years to come and remains hands-on in maintaining a welcoming atmosphere that serves top-quality fare. At every location you will find a uniquely designed quirky motif, friendly staff, a gorgeous display of ready-to-order slices along with other goodies, and you may even meet Mr. Moto himself!

One of the most intriguing reasons to dine-in or carry-out at Mr. Moto Pizza is to get a glimpse of the “Pizza of the Month”. When you hold the title “Best Gourmet Pizza” nothing is off-limits when creating these monthly pies. One example of the animated pie combinations includes BBQ chicken, feta cheese, roasted corn, red bell peppers, mozzarella, purple onions and a light drizzle of BBQ sauce. Mr. Moto’s “Pizza of the Month” may also draw from inspiration from other San Diego staples such as tacos, in which case he ditches the shell for floppy and foldable pizza crust topped with chorizo, cotija cheese and cilantro. No matter the month, or if you choose a classic, custom, or specialty pie there is something for everyone at Mr. Moto Pizza! All locations also serve a variety of pastas, salads, desserts, calzones, sandwiches, and Mr. Moto’s famous classic and stuffed garlic knots. Gluten-free pizza, and vegetarian options are also available. Mr. Moto loves to deliver to local businesses and residences—and your guests will love it, too! Planning a big event? Let Mr. Moto cater for you! Whatever the occasion, the Mr. Moto Pizza family looks forward to greeting you with a smile and serving the freshest, tastiest pizza this side of the Hudson River!
