From The Privateer Coal Fire Pizza
We are a local family-owned restaurant using the freshest ingredients and a 100% coal fire oven. All the while serving up cold craft beers.
Whether you sit outside and chill out on our new patio or relax inside in our rustic dining room, you’ll be glad you came — we offer the best of South Oceanside’s blue collar gourmet dining experiences.
We are the one and only gourmet pizza restaurant in Southern California with a coal-fired oven using 100% coal fire, no gas. Our oven is 7 feet in diameter and weighs 6,500 pounds. As a matter of fact, we built the entire restaurant around our oven!
So what’s the big deal with coal fire you ask? Coal fire is the secret to our recipes. At a temperature of 850-to-900°F, the oven cooks our delicious Neapolitan-style pizzas in three to four minutes. This leaves the pizza crust thin and crisp on the outside, allowing the inside of the pizza to be elastic so all that chewy goodness melts in your mouth.
Our oven takes 2 hrs. to heat up every morning. We then add dried oak to stoke the fire, along with 100% Pennsylvania coal that creates the magic.
