Miami's Must-Try Spots for Pizza


The 9 Best Places for Pizza in Miami

By Nicole Schubert | March 13, 2018 | Food & Drink

We scoured the Magic City to find the best pizza pies that will satisfy everyone’s taste buds—from gourmet pies for the bon vivants to authentic oversized originals for the Manhattan transplants. Here’s the scoop on our nine favorites:



It’s no secret that New Yorkers praise their pizza. But now Magic City diners can get a taste of this labor of love too. Head to Lucali's, located in Sunset Harbor, for a Brooklyn-style, thin crust pizza. We recommend splurging on their 24-inch wood fire pie with tomato sauce, melted buffalo mozzarella, and a sprinkling of parmesan reggiano with specialty toppings such as imported Italian artichoke hearts, beef pepperoni, onions, red peppers, shallots, and porcini mushrooms. But it doesn't stop there. Binge on their flawless Nutella pizza for dessert while you sip on a cocktail at their neighboring wine bar, Bay Club, right next door. 1930 Bay Rd., 305-695-4441

Roberta's Pizza


A stomping ground for big apple eaters, this red sauce pizza joint is now opening a pop-up shop from now until April for Miami locals to fawn over. Offering exotic and traditional classics, this dine and dash has something for everyone's taste. Savor one of their original pies made with caciocavallo cheese, oregano, and chili flakes, or indulge in something new such as the “White Guy” with ricotta, garlic, and mozzarella cheese. 3801 NE 1st Ave., 212-920-4490

Artichoke Basille’s Pizza


Made with spinach and cream sauce, artichoke hearts, mozzarella, and pecorina Romano cheeses, the legendary Artichoke Basille Pizza is a must-try. Its second location outside of New York, Miami late-night snackers can now experience this storied spot. 1222 16th St., 786-975-2580

Steve’s Pizza


It’s a family affair in this Biscayne Boulevard pizza palace. Tossing pies since the seventies, this local dynasty is serving up Miami noshers with New York-style thin crust pizza for over twenty years. So for those Manhattan transplants, we suggest to make Steve’s Pizza your new go-to spot for all things pizza, calzones, and even ziti. 12101 Biscayne Blvd., 305-891-0202



This pizza parlor is fit for those looking for a night filled of glam and glitz. Located at the luxe SLS Brickell, Chef Michael Schwartz's Fi'lia hits a hole in one with his homemade, bestselling pies. And with a flare of haute and hip, these sensational specialties will be like nothing your taste buds have had before. So what do we recommend to nibble on first? Sink your teeth on the prawn pizza made with braised leeks, roasted tomato, Calabrian chile, and aged provolone, or the heirloom tomato pizza made with bacon, oven roasted red onions, fresh mozzarella, and basil. 1300 S Miami Ave., 305-912-1729

La Moderna


Travel to the neighborhood of Rome with this old school Italian cafe and cocktail bar. And in this cucina, its grandma's secret recipe only. Hailing from the epicenter of Italian cuisine, it’s needless to say that this modern family knows their pizza. Try one of their popular Neapolitan pies such as the Stella crafted with cheesy buffalo mozzarella, cherry tomatoes, arugula, prusciutto di parma, and shaved parmiggiano-reggiano, or the mezza luna, a half margarita and half calzone filled with ricotta and ham. 1874 Bay Rd., 786-717-7274



After watching the stars and gazing at street art, pop into this Wynwood hot spot, Joey's. The first restaurant to open in Miami’s art deco district, Joey's is a modern take on the world's most romantic cuisine, plating local bon vivant’s a memorable grub that can't be beat. And if you're starving for a slice, we suggest filling up on their signature pie the Joey, made with pomodoro, mozzarella, Portobello mushrooms, shallots, and oregano, or their classic take on an original, salsiccia, topped with tomato sauce, mozzarella, Italian sausage, onions, and bell peppers. 2506 NW 2nd Ave., 305-438-0488

Ironside Pizza


Nestled on the up-and-coming streets of the Little River District, there's a quaint supper shop with outrageous goodies. And this hidden gem is pulling out all the stops with their tantalizingly delicious Naples-style pizzas. Using the finest "00" flour, you'll be flown first class to the seas of Capri with their authentic pies. And if your gluten-free, don't worry, they have a pie for you too. Indulge in the funghi with mushrooms, tomato, mozzarella, and fiordilatte, or the formaggi with mozzarella, smoked provola, parmigiano, and gorgonzola. 7580 NE 4th Ct., 305-531-5055

Pizza & Burgers By Chef Michael Mina


Looking for a laid-back pizza bar to kick back and relax? We have the perfect spot. With tables adorned with games, upbeat music, and a casual backyard bash menu, you'll be celebrating friendly get-togethers, family dinners, and after-work libations at this Miami eatery. We recommend ordering the parmigiano pizza topped with fried eggplant, meatballs, Chef Michael Mina's sunday sauce, basil, and whole milk mozzarella, or the farm pizza crafted with bacon, eggs, yucon gold potatoes, Bermuda onions, crimini mushrooms, and smoked mozzarella. 4441 Collins Ave., 305-674-4636
