Manhattan Giant Pizza is located on West D Street (between S. Coast Hwy 101 and 2nd St.) in the city of Encinitas in North County San Diego. The establishment had an unassuming location off S.

It’s a wonderful area to walk around as the Encinitas area was beautiful with a beach city vibe to it that had some resemblances of downtown La Jolla. The atmosphere at Manhattan Giant Pizza was very relaxed, casual and the service was fast and friendly. Upon arriving we looked over a menu to decide what to order.

The “New Yorker” Pizza was delicious. It came with pepperoni, sausage, mushroom, black olives, mozzarella, cheese and tomato sauce. It came out hot, fresh and served on a metal pizza tray. While the crust was just slightly thicker than some of the thin New York style crusts we’ve had it was good and had a nice light crisp on the outside.

The slice of pepperoni was gigantic. It was about twice the size of a medium slice and so big only about half it fit on the plate. The slices come from a giant 28” pizza cooked then reheated with the toppings of choice. The consistency of the crust was excellent, cooked all the way through with a nice light crisp to it.
