Miami's Ten Best Pizzas

Categories: Best of Miami

Guess who?
There are two kinds of pizza lovers in this town: traditionalists and radicals.

Traditionalists want extra cheese, but never fontina or Gorgonzola. Did you just ask them to pay 15 bucks for a 12-inch pie? They probably threw some figs and prosciutto in your face. They like pepperoni. A lot.

Radicals prefer runny eggs on their arugula-topped pies. They crave house-smoked bacon and funky cheeses. And they have no problem paying more cash for all of that added funk.

What follows are the top ten pizza joints in Miami -- a list that features Roman pizza al taglio, pizza napolitana, NY-style pizza, and, of course, pizzas swimming in delectable pools of grease.

Sometimes, you want green things on your pizza.
10. Joey's
Joey's isn't quite as good as it used to be. The Wynwood restaurant's pies tasted better a few years ago, when the neighborhood was developing and Joey's was the sole restaurant around. Today, you've got to know your pies. Try the dolce e piccante (figs, Gorgonzola, and hot peppers) or the marinara ($9.50) -- a cheese-less variety smothered in tomato sauce, anchovies, capers, and olives. Both are a fine way to start a night in the arts district.

9. Pizzarium
Pizzarium sells pizza al taglio, a rectangular Roman pie that's sold by the slice. The best variety is the funghetto ($5.98 slice; $37.99 tray), a blend of porcini mushrooms, garlic, and black truffle cream. Crusts are about a half-inch thick with bubbly, chewy exteriors. At this downtown spot, pizzas are pre-cut and pre-baked. When you go, make sure to ask for a fresh tray or slice.

Came to Miami for a cruise. Spent the night at the LaQuinta Airport East hotel. A flyer for Franco's Pizza was put under our door, we thought we'd give it a try. BIG mistake. When calling, could not understand the person who answered the phone. When order came, missing 1/2 of it. 45-min & 3 phone calls later, finally got the rest of our order but not the salad dressing ordered and got a diet drink instead of the regular Pepsi ordered. Food was sub-par, service sucked. Would not recommend this place!!!

There's pizza and there's quiche and there's steak sandwich...they're not the same.


Funny, California invented these fugazi pizza concepts and you can't find a simple, decent NY style slice anywhere in the State.

New Times, you guys obviously haven't tried Three Sisters Farm pizza. They pick organic ingredients from the farm and the head chef (who is Italian) makes you the most delicious and fresh pizza. No competition...

How can you tell if you are a pretentious, hipster, wannabee?


You even consider ordering a pizza with pureed artichokes with arugula and grana padan.
