Miami's Ten Best Pizzas
2. Harry's Pizzeria
Codik A runny egg. On your pizza.
There are several ways to go about Harry's Pizzeria, Michael Schwartz's casual restaurant in the Design District. But there's really only one way to do it right. Start with a local beer and some polenta fries. Next, go for the braised fennel pie ($14) -- a medley of sweet fennel, caramelized onions, and trugole cheese. The specials are always fun, featuring quirky toppings such as porchetta, herbs, and roasted oranges. Now in its second year, Harry's makes dough that's gotten even better over time. Today, it boasts a thin and sturdy center with a chewy rim. That -- along with its creative toppings -- makes it one of the best pies around.

Lucali is perhaps the most expensive pizzeria in Miami. And I understand: Paying eight bucks extra for artichokes on a $24 24-inch pie is borderline insane. It offends some New Yorkers, the ones who grew up paying one or two bucks for a solid, classic slice. But this Brooklyn import has mastered the art of the pie. Lucali's pizzas have a perfect dough. It's soft enough to fold but durable enough to crunch. The crust puffs up with charred bubbles and an all-around greyish hue. Have you tried the sauce? It's the best tomato sauce I've ever had in Miami -- let alone anywhere else. And how about their Nutella pie? It's pretty fantastic.
And let's be serious: Nutella wins every time.
