There’s nothing like eating a slice of pizza. These five restaurants not only specialize in making the best classic pizzas but customize them to have different cheeses and various toppings that only progress the pizza pie into a masterpiece of flavors.


5600 Biscayne Blvd.
Miami, FL 33137
(305) 762-5751

Andiamo has 26 different pizza styles with a pie radius starting at 10″ and going up to 16″. The restaurant, which is laid out like a gas station on busy Biscayne Boulevard, can fill up any customer on their way home from work with a hearty pizza pie that refreshes and satisfies. Imagine eating the Genovese with rosemary potatoes, gorgonzola cheese, pancetta and caramelized onions, or the Vesuvio with salami, olives, hot cherry peppers, tomato sauce and mozzarella.


Little Louie’s Italian Kitchen
4254 S.W. 152nd Ave.
Miami, FL 33185
(305) 225-1500

The suburbs of Greater Miami aren’t just filled with houses and strip malls. There are actually good restaurants that aren’t chains of corporate giants. Little Louie’s offers online ordering to its customers and makes specialty pizzas together with classic, create-your-own pizzas. Specialty pizzas include the White Hot Heat (ranch base, buffalo chicken, cherry peppers, mozzarella), Catalana (chorizo, ham, caramelized onions, red onions, basil) and Louie’s Favorite (Italian sweet sausage, caramelized onions, roasted peppers, mozzarella and Louie’s Pizza sauce).


Frankie’s Pizza
9118 Bird Road
Miami, FL 33165
(305) 221-0221

The anchor restaurant on Bird Road has been around since 1955 and along with Arbetter Hot Dogs on 87th Avenue, gives an historic, culinary feel to that area. The square pizzas are different from the round pies at every other business and the kitchen gets the pizzas out quickly to the customer. Order the pizza(s) with any toppings like black olives, jalapenos, anchovies, salami, etc. Remember to come with cash as Frankie’s does not accept credit card payments, which is worth the trouble when the pizza tastes better for lunch or dinner the day after.

1103 S. Andrews Ave.
Ft. Lauderdale, FL 33315
(954) 462-9222

When a customer want to order pizza at Pie-zan’s, they must bring their appetite. A personal pizza starts at 10″ and there is no medium size—only large and extra large. The comfort food/stress eater would love Pie-zan’s because of this and its pizza selections. Think of the mouthwatering house special with pepperoni, sweet Italian sausage, meatball, roasted peppers, caramelized onions and black olives. It is a mix of salty and sweet tastes that will bring disorder to a group when they start to argue over extra pieces.


Luigi’s Coal Oven Pizza
1415 E. Las Olas Blvd.
Ft. Lauderdale, FL 33301
(954) 990-8647

Luigi’s has the original pizza from Naples, Italy where the pizza was perfected, as stated on the website. Choose a New York-style tomato pie with half goat cheese and half spicy salami and a truffle mushroom pizza. These are only a few selections at Luigi’s and the pizzas are a feast for the eyes with golden brown crusts and round pies that are not perfectly round because the ingredients overflowed and pushed the crust out during the baking process.
