The Best Pizza in Miami, Ranked
Move over, NYC and Chicago. Miami’s got enough mouthwatering pizza spots to satisfy us all. But, of course, some places are better than others—which is why we’ve rounded up the best of the best. Here, 17 places to get down with some doughy, cheesy goodness.
17. Classic Cheese at Casola’s
For more than 30 years, this old-school joint has been keeping it simple (and it’s obviously working).

16. The Artichoke Pie at Artichoke Basille’s
You may have first tasted this thick and creamy slice in New York. But luckily, there’s a Miami outpost now. Try it for yourself and thank us later.
1220 16th St., Miami Beach; 305-704-3602 or artichokepizza.com
15. Design Your Own Pie at Lucali
Even in a torrential downpour, we will always trek to South Beach for a hearty, crunchy pie topped with beef pepperoni, onions and basil at this charming NYC import.
1930 Bay Rd., Miami Beach; 305-695-4441 or lucali.com
14. Short Rib Pizza at Harry’s
OK, short ribs on pizza isn’t for everyone, but if you’re going to order it, it has to be at Harry’s. End of discussion.

13. Margherita Dop with Black Crust at O’Munaciello
There’s a perfectly good reason why this Neapolitan-style pie features a funky-looking dough color. No, it’s not burned. The crust is actually infused with activated charcoal. Cool, right? Add some tomato sauce, buffalo mozzarella and basil, and you’ll be good to go.
6425 Biscayne Blvd., Miami; 786-907-4000 or munaciello-miami.com
12. Cheese and Tomato at Frankie’s
Yes, we will gladly have a slice of this legendary crispy cheese and tomato square pizza at one of Miami’s oldest pizza institutions (the place has been around since 1955).
9118 SW 40th St., Miami; 305-221-0221 or frankiespizzaonline.com
11. Salami Pizza at Stanzione 87
It sounds weird, but trust us—the tangy combo of spicy salami, spiced honey and homemade mozzarella is heavenly.
87 SW Eighth St., Miami; 786-360-1852 or stanzione87.com
10. Nutella Pizza at Ironside
Would it really be a complete pizza list without a Nutella-smeared, finger-licking-good dessert pie? Yeah, that’s what we thought.
7580 NE Fourth Court, Miami; 305-531-5055 or pizzaironside.com
9. Pepperoni at Mister O1 Extraordinary Pizza
This is what we call a feast for the eyes (and our hungry bellies). The combo of thin crust with doughy pointed edges, slightly sweet tomato sauce and discs of fresh mozzarella is the stuff of dreams.
Multiple locations; mistero1.com
8. La Blanca at Pizza Tropical
This N.Y.-style pizzeria (started by a Brooklyn pie master) whips up hot slices layered with ricotta, mozzarella, caramelized onions and toasted sesame seeds. We recommend pairing yours with a strong cafecito. It’s a flawless duo.
176 NW 24th St., Miami; 855-732-8992 or pizzatropical.com
7. Cheese at Steve’s Pizza
Nothing fancy here. It’s just an old-school, no-frills slice, and sometimes that’s exactly what we’re craving.
12101 Biscayne Blvd., North Miami; 305-891-0202 or steves-pizza.net
6. Dal Nonno Angelo at Lucia Pizza
Get a little fancy at this artisanal wood-oven pizzeria with gourmet toppings like homemade sausage, portobello mushrooms, aged fontina and fresh taleggio cheese.
8755 SW 72nd St., Miami; 305-249-1043 or luciapizzeria.com
5. Funghi e Tartufo at Farinelli 1937
This decadent combo of fontina, sautéed shiitake mushrooms and truffle paste is not for the faint of heart.
3197 Commodore Plaza, Coconut Grove; 305-648-9023 or farinelli1937.com
4. Make Your Own at Andiamo! Brick Oven Pizza
This is a place where you’ll want to get creative. If the dozens of toppings overwhelm you, we suggest smoked Gouda, caramelized onions and Roma tomato. Mmm.
5600 Biscayne Blvd., Miami; 305-762-5751 or andiamopizzamiami.com
3. In Ricotta Da Vegan at Paulie Gee’s
Sure, Paulie Gee’s has a ton of tasty non-vegan options, but this masterpiece with house-made vegan sausage and cashew ricotta dollops is so tasty, it takes the cake—or should we say pie?
8001 Biscayne Blvd., Miami; 786-558-8315 or pauliegee.com
2. Everything Bagel Pizza at the Alley
Pizza topped with smoked wild salmon, whipped cream cheese and capers? We’re just gonna call this breakfast.
1440 Ocean Dr., Miami Beach; 305-760-6903 or thebetsyhotel.com
1. Any Pie at Crust
How do you know a crust is amazing? When they take away the sauce and you don’t even miss it. (Another good indicator may be when the place is actually named Crust.) Either way, it’s too hard to decide between the spinach white cheese, truffled or veggie pie varieties. So, um, we’ll take them all.
