By the time the first pizzerias were beginning to open in Poway a certain type of pizza had captured the attention of pretty much most of America. Poway is known for New York-style pizza which is an Americanized version of a pizza originating from the Naples region of Italy. What the pizza chef who created the first New York-style pizza did was to stretch out his dough to a much larger size which also made the base a lot thinner. Initially, New York-style pizza was topped with nothing more than regular tomato sauce and a generous sprinkling of cheese. That changed over the years though and now you'll find New York-style pies that have been loaded up with all manner of ingredients. If New York-style pizza isn't your favorite type of pie, you'll be pleased to know there are some pizzerias in Poway that bake great regular-sized thin and thick crust pizzas.
When you order a delivery pizza you want one that arrives in prime condition and not looking like a deflated pancake. When you get a New York-style pie delivered that can happen quite a lot as the base is just too thin to maintain its integrity for long.

When you've had enough of the quiet lifestyle in Poway head into San Diego for the day. It's just a twenty-three-mile drive south down the CA-163 and when you get there you'll be spoiled for choice for things to do. Visit the USS Midway Museum, the San Diego Zoo, or SeaWorld San Diego. Take a wander through the greenery of Balboa Park, along the trails in the Torrey Pines State Reserve, or have a chill-out session on Coronado Beach. Before you go back home, take time to explore San Diego's historic Old Town and have a pizza at Jack and Giulio's on San Diego Avenue.
It can be very brain taxing trying to give kids a new experience. Make the short fifteen-mile journey north of Poway to Escondido and they'll think you've taken them on a vacation to Africa if you go to the San Diego Zoo Safari Park. Take a ride through the two-thousand acres of open terrain the zoo park covers in an open-topped wagon and the kids will get a close-up look at free-roaming animals like giraffes, antelope, rhino, camels, and bighorn sheep as well as big cats. After they've calmed down from all the excitement of spotting different species, take them for a pie at Filippi's Pizza Grotto on West Grand Avenue.
