7 best places for pizza in Miami
Andiamo! just might be Miami’s favourite shop when it comes to pizza. The pies here are made in a brick-oven and the vibe at this pizza joint is fun and friendly. Their outdoor seating area has picnic tables and large screen TVs that show the big game or a movie.
At this tyre store-turned-pizza restaurant, opt for the create-your-own-pizza, choose your favourite toppings, and watch them cook your dream pizza to perfection.
Steve’s Pizza is another one of Miami’s favourite pizza shops as evidenced by its cult-like following among the locals. This neighbourhood pizza shop has some character inside with the graffiti on the wall and the New York style feel of their pizzas.
It’s not uncommon to eat a gigantic slice of pizza here that you have to fold it just to eat it. But if you’re not down for an entire pie, get a slice of whatever you want for just $3.
Lucali is another classic pizza joint in Miami that is a great spot for a first date. The food is fairly-priced, the vibe inside is sublime, and the pizzas are seriously fantastic. Isn’t that what everyone looks for in a first date?
If you love cheese on your pizza, get the 3-Cheese Pizza, featuring mozzarella, buffalo mozzarella, and parmiggiano cheeses. The pizzas here are massive so best to share a pizza with your date.
As you probably guessed, the crust at Crust is what they’re known for here. It can be tough to make the perfect crust, but they do that here striking the right balance between thin and doughy.
Don’t waste the crust here (as it really is the best part of the pizzas here) and get the Surf & Turf pizza.
Stanzione 87 makes the best Neapolitan style pizza in Miami, hands down. These thin-crusted, Italian-style pies are cooked to perfection in the wood-fire oven and are done cooking in under one minute!
Neapolitan pizza aficionados need to try their Margherita Pizza at Stanzione 87.
Blocks Pizza Deli is a pizza shop that uses fresh organic ingredients in their pizzas. Instead of cutting their pizzas into familiar triangle slices, they cut them into neat blocks.
Blocks Pizza also has a wide variety of pizzas to choose from but a recommendation would be the Chicken and Pineapple Pizza for adventurous eaters.
Mister O1 is a chain of pizza restaurants in Miami and they are known for their Italian-style pizzas that are made with dough imported from Italy. They too, also have an interesting shape to their pizzas as they are made in the shape of star!
They are known for their Margherita pizzas here so definitely get that and pair it with a glass of white wine here.
