Pretty pizza
8. Thea Pizzeria
Allapattah's Thea Pizzeria is a lovely restaurant in an unlikely setting. There's an easy explanation for that: Thea Goldman is an ex-partner of Joey's -- a restaurant that was also a trailblazer in an evolving neighborhood. Although their crusts taste similar, I like Thea's pies better. The artichoke pizza ($13) features pureed artichokes with arugula and grana padano over a thin, blistered crust. Thea's cacio e pepe focaccia -- scattered with copious pecorino -- ($10) is a salty explosion of cheese. They're all solid pies, and a great option for lunch.

Spris
Now available in downtown too.
7. Spris
Do you miss Mai Tardi, the outdoor Design District pizzeria that closed last year? Well, Spris also comes from the Graspa Group -- the same folks behind Salumeria 104, Tiramesu, and Soyka. Spris on Lincoln Road bakes round pies with slim crusts. It boasts a crazy variety of Italian-inspired pizzas: traditional, no sauce, no cheese, no gluten, and whole wheat. Some pies are too ambitious -- with chicken breast and thinly sliced beef. Stick to the classics: margherita ($9.75), four cheese ($13), and prosciutto crudo. It's a great excuse to visit one of Miami's few pedestrian-friendly streets.

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.

@Alfredo Caldero I tried the Rey's located down past London Square, might as well go to Marino's on Kendall just the same. Rey's wasn't anything I'd drive out of my way for, but it might be good enough to keep from driving to where I really wanna better pizza too ? And 1/2 way between the 2, I'd pick up an All Star pizza on SW 137th there, just North of London Square.
