5ff1b1f9e4cc28f28cb6ccc7b9ca100dWe’ve just returned from a long weekend down south, Southern California that is.

While there we stumbled upon this pizza shop in a strip mall. This being Newport Beach in August, prime vacation season, we were happy to find a good restaurant off the beaten path.

Of course the eaters in our group had varied dining requirements. Luckily they offer a gluten-free pizza crust for those who prefer their pizza that way but are not hugely afraid of cross-contamination.

If you need higher-end pizza, head for Mario Batali’s Pizzaria Mozza just down the Pacific Coast Highway.
