Miami's Ten Best Pizzas
6. Andiamo Brick Oven Pizza
Lesley Elliot Gorgonzola! ON MY PIZZA?
Andiamo offers almost thirty varieties of pies, but I always order the same thing: the New Yorker with extra fresh garlic. The 10-inch pizza ($11.25) isn't anything too wild. It pairs a thick tomato sauce with fresh mozzarella, parmesan, basil, and extra virgin olive oil -- all layered atop a slim yet puffy crust. Mozzarella pies often lack depth of flavor, which is provided by aged cheeses. This pie has both parmesan and mozzarella. And that makes it a winner.
5. Steve's Pizza
Lee Klein Party on the beach? Drive across the causeway.
Say what you will about Steve's Pizza in North Miami: it's decor is too dingy, its NY-style pies are too greasy, its sauce is too sweet. Whatever. This place is a freaking enclave, a late-night mainstay that provides colossal slices for just $2.75. So what if those foldable slices don't fit on your flimsy paper plate? And who cares that there's graffiti all over the place? These pies are huge orbs of plain goodness -- all rimmed by pale, lean, classic crusts.
