The two of us aren't usually pizza fans, but The Pizza Press has become a fairly regular stop for us, mostly for lunch. Being able to order EXACTLY what you want on your personal thin crust pie and have it ready in minutes works for...More

This is one of the newer restaurants in a mall that has new owners and has been updated. It is very convenient if you are going to theater next door. I was astounded at how many choices you can have. Unlike most pizza parlors, where...More

If you want a fast pizza, this is a good choice. The big letdown was the Totino’s like pizza crust, with no real character. Friendly staff, great Hoppy hour deal 3-5pm Mon-Thur for just $7.

We visited Pizza Press last night before going to a movie. Very convenient location to the theatre and Shops at Carlsbad. I liked their pizza. The crust and cheese seemed better than their many competitors. Gluten free crust is available for $2 more.

Each pizza is named after a newspaper. I ate "The Chronicle." Excellent with olive oil, chevre goat cheese, and lots of other yummy veggie toppings. Next time, and there will be one soon, I will make my own custom pizza......only $8 with as many toppings...More

It's a nice idea to build your own pizza and mine was worth coming back for. Very good value and the draft beer selection was good. However, the crust was not good. More like a cracker and lacked any yeasty flavor.
