Economics: Traditional wood fired artisan Pizzas are made from fresh organic ingredients and come in one size with approximately six slices ($12-$16.50). The pizzas are not cheap but it’s worth it. Appetizers range from $6-$13.50.

Atmosphere: Blue Ribbon Artisan Pizzeria had a fun and relaxed setting with dim lighting that creates a romantic ambiance. It gave the feeling of high class dining without a fine-dining price tag.

Taste: The Staff’s Favorite pizza we ordered was amazing! It came with tomato sauce, fennel sausage, heavy cream, Parmigiano Reggiano and basil. Blue Ribbon Artisan Pizzeria offers some of the best pizzas in San Diego we’ve had.

Service: The service was fast and very friendly. During peak hours there can be a 30-60 minute wait and parking can be a bit of a challenge. The excellent service led by owners Wade and Kristi Hageman (husband-and-wife team) added to the experience.

We visited Blue Ribbon Artisan Pizzeria in Encinitas once before to try My Father’s Pizza. It was amazing and one of the best pizzas in San Diego we’ve had. Based on our exceptional experience we had to go back and try another pizza. This time we tried Staff’s Favorite Pizza. Once again we were amazed!

Blue Ribbon Artisan Pizzeria is located in the Lumberyard Shopping Center on South Coast Highway in Encinitas. The establishment has been open since June 2010 (owned and operated by husband-and-wife team Wade and Kristi Hageman). The pizzas are made from dough that goes through a three day fermentation process and are overseen and cooked to perfection in an authentic wood burning oven by Wade.

The pizza was cooked to perfection (by owner Wade) in an authentic wood oven. The crust had an amazing light crisp to it. The fennel sausage was outstanding and the heavy cream sauce was unique, creamy and delicious.

Blue Ribbon Artisan Pizzeria Encinitas California Salad with Peaches
The salad we ordered came with baby greens, peaches, Pt. Reyes blue cheese, almonds and Muscat vinaigrette dressing. The baby greens, Pt. Reyes blue cheese and peaches were fresh and tasted great together. The almonds gave the salad a nice crunch. We loved the vinaigrette dressing and overall the salad was delicious.

Blue Ribbon Artisan Pizzeria Encinitas California Butterscotch Pudding Dessert
The butterscotch putting dessert was to die for! It came with butterscotch pudding, caramel sauce, sea salt and whipped cream. It’s the only dessert on the menu and it’s so good there’s really no reason for another option.
