With locations in Coconut Grove and Miami’s Design District, Harry’s Pizzeria is a great choice if you’re looking for tasty pies made with fresh local flavors and ingredients. Their classic cheese and Margherita pies are crowd-pleasers, but we also love their short rib pizza with caramelized onion, and their Cubano pie, topped with slow-roasted pork, fontina, gruyere, and a croqueta.
Details: 2996 McFarlane Road, Miami (Coconut Grove), and 3918 N Miami Avenue Miami (Design District). For more information, visit www.harryspizzeria.com.
When the pandemic hit, chef Greg Tetzner started baking square pies in his home under the name “Old Greg’s” — until fellow chef Brad Kilgore tried one and fell in love. Now Tetzner bakes his naturally leavened pies from the kitchen of Kilgore’s Kaido. They’re so delicious, everyone in Miami is talking about them. Try a bite, and you’ll see exactly what all the buzz is about. You can order all that cheesy, flavorful goodness online here.
Details: 151 NE 41st St #217, Miami, FL 33137. For more information, call +1 866-653-4734 or visit www.oldgregspizza.com.
Mister O1 Extraordinary Pizza
Mister 01 Extraordinary Pizza has locations in South Beach, Brickell, Wynwood, and even Naples on the west coast. No matter which location you visit or order from, expect pies that are so delicious you’re going to want thirds. If you like a little sweet with your savory, try the pineapple-peppered Bahamas or Hawaiana pizzas. And the Star Luca pizza (filled with ricotta cheese, mozzarella, spicy salami, and tangy tomato sauce) is legendary.

For half a century, this family-owned gem has delivered freshly baked crave-worthy pies to patrons who know great pizza. It’s earned a laundry list of accolades, including making it into Bon Appetit’s list of Top 8 Gourmet Pizza Shops in America twice, being named Best Pizza in South Florida by South Florida Magazine, Best Pizza in Miami by the New Times and Miami Metro Magazine, and more. The menu is fuss-free — you can choose up to five toppings for your pie and tack on an order of garlic rolls.

If you’re a fan of thin-crust pizza, check out Andiamo. Their pies are baked in a brick oven and come in with a head-spinning assortment of toppings. Our favorites include the Brooklyn Special, loaded with pepperoni, roasted peppers, caramelized onions, tomato sauce and mozzarella, the pancetta- and gouda-topped Bella Bambina, and the meaty Godfather.
Details: 5600 Biscayne Boulevard, Miami. For more information, call 305-762-5751 or visit www.andiamopizzamiami.com.
For authentic Brooklyn-style brick-oven pizza, head to Lucali. They use locally sourced ingredients for their mouthwatering pies, plus some special toppings from across the Atlantic — like imported Italian artichoke hearts that add an insane punch of flavor no matter what you pair them with. The signature specials here are also great, especially the meatball sandwich and the ravioli. Save room for some mini cannolis or a big slice of Nutella pie.
Details: 1930 Bay Rd, Miami Beach. For more information, call 305-695-4441 or visit www.lucali.com.
This Miami Beach mainstay is known for its down-home Italian dishes, but the pizzas that come of the kitchen here are just as impressive. Topped with decadent cream, shitake mushrooms, prosciutto, and arugula, the Bianca pie is a dream, but you also can’t go wrong with the classic Margherita.
Details: 1801 Purdy Ave, Miami Beach. For more information, call 305-531-2228 or visit www.sardinia-ristorante.com.
Helmed by chef/owner Klime Kovaceski and his wife Anita, CRUST Restaurant has won plenty of national acclaim (it’s made OpenTable’s 100 Best Restaurants in America list twice, and has taken the #1 restaurant slot on TripAdvisor four years in a row). The pizza menu is broken into two sections based on sauce preference — red and white — and every pie lives up to the hype.

Though its origins trace to Boston, Casola’s has been a Miami institution for more than 15 years. News Time Magazine ranked them #1 for their traditional thin crust pizza, and their hearty Italian dinners and savory meatball subs have kept locals coming back over and over again. Anything you order here is good, but pizza lovers should definitely opt for one of the specialty pies, like the Portuguesa, the Old Mexicana, or the fan-favorite Casola’s.

The Brick Miami
At The Brick Miami, it’s all about what’s in season. Menu items vary depending on the time of year and what ingredients are at their peak, but you can always count on the food being delicious. If it’s available, definitely try the brick oven Margherita pizza or the spicy chicken pizza if you like your pie with a little extra heat — it comes topped with homemade hot sauce and a drizzle of cool ranch.
Details: 8955 SW 72nd Pl, Kendall. For more information, call 786-814-5909 or visit www.thebrickmiami.com.
