San Diego’s Mr. Moto Pizza House Expands To Point Loma
Point Loma residents have a new go-to pizza option; the doors have opened on a Mr. Moto Pizza House in the heart of Point Loma at Rosecrans and Shelter Island Drive.
After a triumphant win at the inaugural Gourmet Pizza Fest held at Liberty Station in 2016, when Mr. Moto took the title “Best Gourmet Pizza in San Diego,” the pizza guru has had the “recipe for success.”
Uncommon ingredients like truffle oil, burrata and mascarpone cheese are found on their pies, along with drizzles of sweet balsamic glaze or raspberry chipotle sauce. Everything is made from scratch and the menu offers classic Italian fare with a modern twist.
Customers have responded, and this is the third Mr. Moto location in the area.
Masterfully created whole “Specialty Pies” are steadfast at Mr. Moto Pizza House along with the coveted “Pizza of the Month;” a limited-release pie created each month by Mr. Moto himself. Much of Mr. Moto’s magic lies in his specially prepared dough. His pie’s crust shares the same thinness as East-Coast style pizza, making it easy to fold—without the encircling crunchy edge. Mr. Moto’s crust edge is similar to Ciabatta bread: fluffy, chewy, and delicious.
All three Mr. Moto Pizza House locations carry the same menu and cool vibe—just don’t expect any of them to look or feel like other pizza places.
Gibran “Mr. Moto” Fernandez and his family have diversified the brand from the cliché red and white checkered “Italian” tablecloth concept, and avoid replicating mediocre menus found at national “Grab-and-Go” pizza chains.
The 1250 sq.ft. space serves up delicious pies, pastas and more, while also catering to health-conscious diners.
He’s looking forward to sharing his pies, restaurant and with his new neighbors in Point Loma.
See you there!
