Crispy, thin crusts smothered with melted cheese; New-York-style pizza is what you'll find when you step into Paradise Pizza, a relative newcomer to the Carlsbad restaurant scene. Toppings galore—nearly 40—include a variety of vegetables such as grilled artichokes, fresh or fire-roasted tomatoes, olives, shrimp, steak, breakfast bacon, and Pestorosa. Whether you go for the regular or gluten-free crust, try a specialty pizza like the Zen loaded with sausage, pepperoni, breakfast bacon, green peppers, red onions, and mushrooms, or the BBQ Shrimp with roasted red peppers and pesto.

Oven-baked sandwiches include the pepperoni chicken with chicken breast, pepperoni, onions, pepperocinis, mozzarella, provolone, and sauce, and the Philly Cheesesteak loaded with steak, red onions, bell peppers and American cheese. Calzones are delicious as well, and they're made to-order with the fillings you choose.

Enjoy Fine Beer at Karl Strauss Brewing Company

February 17, 2015 1:18 pm

Karl Strauss was a consummate brewer—artist, craftsman, scientist. Trained in his native Germany, he came to Milwaukee in 1939 to work for the legendary Pabst Brewing Company. Karl’s team helped improve Pabst Blue Ribbon in the 1950s, making it America’s best selling beer for decades. Karl rose to become Pabst’s chief brewer and retired after 44 years with the company. He couldn’t sit still, though. When his cousin asked him to start a microbrewery, Karl couldn’t resist, and his beers have been a California favorite since 1989.

If you’re not a Pabst fan, don’t worry; Karl was a brewer’s son and he used the chance to return to his roots. The big menu of exquisitely crafted beers is served by a friendly staff who knows their stuff. Can’t decide? Karl wanted to spread the joy of beer, so they’re generous with samples. The list of bar food available here includes many well-regarded choices, too. Visit the Karl Strauss Brewing Company website to see a full menu!
