After indulging and satisfying our sweet tooth last month, MavLife Taste Testers have transitioned to pizza to decide which local slice reigns supreme.

This month we are bringing back last year’s Hungry Mav winner, East Coast Pizza, to face off two new pizzerias that weren’t in commision last competition. Let’s see if the champion can handle the heat or if it’s time to get out of the kitchen.

Winner: 13 votes

Stone Flats-Flatbread Pizza

272 N. El Camino Real, Encinitas, CA 92024

(760) 479-0167

“The first bite was delicious,” junior Jackson Cowart said. “A soft explosion on the way into the body,” he added, as he exposed his poetic side. This little stone flat pizza “looked especially appetizing and the spices looked appealing,” sophomore Claudia Mathews said. She also remarked that “the first bite was overwhelming with flavor and the sauce is full of spices.” In the end it looks like use of spice and a great sauce won the Hungry Maverick for Stone Flats.

Second Place: 4 votes

East Coast Pizza

2015 San Elijo Ave., Cardiff, CA 92007

(760) 944-1599

East Coast Pizza lived up to its name, being branded “the most traditional pizza” by junior Devon Whitlam. This pizza roused cries of “tastes like New York” and “reminds me of my trip,” so if anyone is looking for an authentic New York slice, this is the place to go. However, last year’s champion did fall down to second place. The majority of tasters weren’t quite as pleased with it this year, with comments like “mediocre,” “way too greasy” and “gross” commonly expressed regarding this pizza.

Last Place: 3 votes

Crust Pizzeria

3263 Camino De Los Coches  Carlsbad, CA 92009

(760) 944-1111

Having a location so close to campus has done this pizza no favors in finding its way to the hearts of MavLife staffers. Getting only three votes, this pizza seemed to be universally disliked. Although its crust was “sweet and fluffy” according to junior Megan Mineiro, the grease that drowned the pizza was a deal breaker. The taste of the cheese was overpowered by basil and “fennel” (which is the key ingredient in black licorice) according to freshman Cooper Gee.
