Another hand-tossed pizza place that’s been in business since 1960 and owned by the Scinicariello family. It’s another favorite of the newsroom and we’re always glad to see the pizza’s coming. If pizza’s not your thing, check out the homemade pasta or some baked ziti. And make sure, if you make it to John’s, eat several of John’s world famous garlic rolls.

18063 S. Dixie Highway, Miami, FL
Pizza’s so good that it couldn’t simply be held to just five items. This is New York-style pizza at its finest in South Florida. If you’re really ready to aim for the sky, you can reach for a full 23-inch jumbo size pizza. You can also hit up Steve’s for a nice lamb gyro. But, if you are going to get some pies from Steve’s, don’t get it delivered, head to the restaurant for a fun dining experience.
