As a Miami native, I can vouch that great pizza is readily available in the Magic City. From spots I’ve been going to since I was a kid to those that have popped up in the last few years, Miami has had a sort of pizza boom. As a food writer in this city, it’s been so fun watching the scene grow. Here are some of the top picks for best pizza in the Miami area. Enjoy, but maybe wait a minute, for the sake of the roof of your mouth.

Yeti's Snowballs and Pizza


Born out of the pandemic, this pizza spot started as a little food truck in a parking lot in 2020 and has since popped up in various places — including a bar I frequent where I’ve devoured many a late night Yeti’s Pizza — before finding a semi-permanent home at a newly constructed skate park in the quickly growing El Portal neighborhood. The menu is simple: a handful of specialty pizzas, a create-your-own pizza option, and mini garlic breadsticks. Made with a well-taken-care-of mother sourdough starter, the dough is flavorful and the crust is crisp. The Hialeah Hot Honey Piggy is a favorite — covered with the small pepperonis that curl up on the sides, lots of spicy honey, and fresh basil.

Andiamo Brick Oven Pizza


This neighborhood favorite has been around ages and is located inside a historic building that was once a vintage tire shop. The menu is one of the most customizable I’ve ever seen when it comes to ordering exactly what you want via delivery. Not only can you select a half and half situation using dozens of fresh toppings (ranging from classics like sausage and olives to more adventurous offerings such as roasted eggplant and caramelized onions), but you can also customize the crust on your 10-, 14-, or 16-inch pizza. Thin, lightly baked, crispy, double cut, or not cut at all — you’re in total control. Also, don’t sleep on the meatball parm sandwich. With secret recipe meatballs, Andiamo tomato sauce, and provolone cheese, it’s one of the best in town.

Frankie's Pizza


One of my first memories of pizza that wasn’t from a national chain (we were a Pizza Hut family growing up) was from Frankie’s Pizza on Bird Road in Miami’s Westchester neighborhood when I was in elementary school. Family-owned and operated since 1955, this is one of the most iconic pizza spots in all of the 305. The Pasquarella family makes everything from scratch for these square-cut slices of fluffy pizza. You can also order by the slice, which is fun in case you’re in the mood to mix and match or satisfy a few different cravings. Oh, and I recommend (so do they) selecting the option to have it half-baked, that way you can pop it in your own oven at 450 degrees for 10 minutes for optimally fresh pizza. And I know we’re talking about delivery here, but it’s worth noting that since day one, when you order for pickup, Frankie’s adds an extra slice of fresh pizza on top of your box so you can eat it on the way home.

The Big Cheese Of Miami


Another classic Miami establishment, this is one of those homegrown, red sauce kinda spots where the menu is massive, but you know there’s no wrong answer. From pastas galore to a lengthy sub menu, you’ll find something for every appetite, but the pizza is where it’s at. Big Cheese Delight made with mozzarella, ricotta, parmesan, provolone, and extra cheese is always a solid choice. Looking for something a bit heartier? Try the Meat Lovers, which is overflowing with pepperoni, sausage, meatballs, ham, and bacon. Those who are trying to avoid gluten are in luck, as there’s a cauliflower crust option. Whatever you do, don’t forget to order the garlic rolls.

Steve's Pizza


With two locations on opposite ends of town — one in North Miami and one in Palmetto Bay — you’ve got double the chance to check out Steve’s Pizza. There’s a selection of classic and specialty pies with fun options like a spicy buffalo chicken and Steve’s Special, made with pepperoni, sausage, meatball, green pepper, onion, mushroom, and (optional) anchovy. Pies come in five sizes: 12, 14, 16, 18, and 23 inches. Back in the day, they didn’t offer delivery, and I vividly remember being tasked with picking up pizza for a family gathering shortly after getting my driver’s license: The 23-inch pizzas were so huge it took me several tries to maneuver them into my car without compromising the integrity of the pizza. Was it stressful? Yes. Was it worth it? Absolutely.

Old Greg's Pizza


This pizza went Instagram-viral during the early days of the pandemic, but I was fortunate enough to try it in Greg’s home kitchen at the start of 2020 (perks of being a local food writer), well before the world shut down. The crunch, the crisp, the freshly made sauce, and the high quality ingredients are what make this pizza special. In the beginning, it was all about the thick, fluffy square pies, but these days pizza fiends can get their round pie fix as well. The OG Roni pie is always a great choice, as is the Local Zucchini pie made with French Farms zucchini, arugula cream, mozzarella, ricotta, burrata, and parmesan. And keep an eye out for limited-edition pizzas like the French Onion pie with onion soubise, caramelized onion, jus, provolone, and parmesan. The polenta-crusted chicken wings and the caesar salad hoagie are totally worth adding to your cart as well.

DC Pie Co


The slightly more casual version of Lucali (a New York transplant that made its way to South Beach years ago), DC Pie Co is located in the heart of Brickell, making it an ideal spot to order from if you’re in one of many nearby high rises. Keeping pizza options simple, there’s one 15-inch brick oven pie listed on the menu with the ability to customize it to your liking; topping options include pepperoni, shallots, artichoke hearts, and sausage. This is another spot that uses the tiny pepperoni cups and I’m here for it — in fact, I highly recommend adding an order of pepperoni chips to your order. Exactly what it sounds like, these pepperoni are cooked until crispy enough to eat like chips — addictive! Got a sweet tooth? The Nutella pie will crush that craving instantly.

Sir Pizza Of Palmetto Bay


Sir Pizza is no doubt one of the best pizza joints in all of Miami. The thin-crust pizza is cut into little square pieces with cheese and toppings that cover it entirely, living up to their “good to the very edge” motto. The family-owned spot has been operating since 1969 and has seen generations of families enjoying its delicious pies, massive salads, and hearty sandwiches. Favorites include the Veggie Feast (topped with black olives, green peppers, mushrooms, tomatoes, and Sir Pizza blended cheese) and the Royal Feast (topped with pepperoni, sausage, mushrooms, onions, green peppers, and cheese). Personally, I like to keep it simple with a pepperoni pizza here — these pepperonis are tiny little square chunks (and as a pepperoni connoisseur, some of my favorites) — with a side (or several) of ranch. I don’t quite know what they do to their ranch, but if you aren’t dipping your Sir Pizza into their ranch, then you’re doing it wrong.

Casola's Pizzeria & Sub Shop


This old-school pizza joint is one I’ve been going to for decades. Casola’s has always been there for me — whether I was placing an order to feed an entire office on Pizza Friday in my corporate days, or swinging by after the bar in my early 20s. The huge menu features pizzas in small, medium, large, and extra large (and extra large actually means *massive* — think slices bigger than your head) with an array of classic toppings, plus burgers, pastas, chicken wings, and a lengthy sub menu. Casola’s takes orders until nearly 2 a.m. on weekends, making it a great late night bite. I always add a tuna salad croissant to my order — while it’s not your typical pizza sidekick, it’s a really good sandwich.

Pizza Johny's


A New York-style pizza joint in the heart of Miami’s suburbs, Pizza Johny’s was my go-to pizza spot when I lived in the area. Available by the slice or a whole pie (with sizes ranging from 14 to 24 inches), you’re here for the classic New York thin crust pizza and the Famous Pepperollies — a wheat flour pocket of dough rolled up with pepperoni inside, covered with garlic, parsley, olive oil, and parmesan. When it comes to pizza, go for the Red, White, and Green pie, named after the colors of the Italian flag and also its ingredients — herbed olive oil, tomatoes, ricotta, spinach, and lots of mozzarella; another good choice (and a fun break from the ordinary) is the Chicken Bacon Ranch, made with red sauce, mozzarella, sausages, peppers, and caramelized onions. The cannoli, fresh-stuffed zeppoli, and New York-style cheesecake are all made in-house.

Talkin Tacos


This isn’t a pizza spot, per say, and there’s not quite a pizza menu. But Talkin Tacos is home to a Birria Pizza that’s so freaking fire, it felt like a crime to keep this knowledge to myself. Picture this: a thin crust made of cheese that’s topped with saucy birria, onion, cilantro, avocado salsa, and cotija cheese served with a side of tomato soup for dipping. Pair it with a cup of street corn and you’re in for a pizza party like you’ve never had before.

Joe's Pizza


This New York transplant made its way to Miami just over in Wynwood a year ago and serves up NY-style slices in one of Miami’s busiest neighborhoods. I usually opt for a classic pepperoni, but the fresh mozzarella pie (with tons of massive thick slices of mozz all over it) is a big winner, too.

800 Degrees Pizza


800° Degrees Pizza is entirely wood-fired. They’re cooking their pizzas in ultra-hot ovens that — you guessed it — can reach temperatures as high as 800 degrees, which help give the pies just the right amount of smokiness. There’s also dough scratch-made each day, fresh produce, and artisanal meats and cheeses. An added plus is that their pies come in two sizes, 10- and 14-inch. Meaning there’s no reason why you shouldn’t order two — consider trying the Quattro Formaggi Pizza, a white pie topped with smoked mozzarella, gorgonzola, fontina, and wildflower honey, and the Carni Pizza, a red sauce pie with Italian sausage, pepperoni, and bacon.



This restaurant comes to Miami straight from Italy, so they know their pizza. Piola started in Treviso back in 1986, and now they have locations all over the world. Consistency is key with so many restaurants, but their quality is never sacrificed, from the house-made dough and sauce to the crust that is baked to a crisp in a custom brick oven. The pizzas range from the more traditional Funghi Misti, with tomato sauce, mozzarella, and sautéed mixed mushrooms, to the more outrageous and innovative Houston, topped with red sauce, mozzarella, jalapeños, avocado, tomatoes, and fresh cilantro.

Groovy’s Pizza


This is another super unpretentious joint, and a joint it very much is. Order here for all your game-day needs. Think burgers, wings, cheese fries, and chicken tenders, and, of course, pizza. Grab one of their house specialty pies, something crazy like the Steak Fajita pizza, with grilled skirt steak, red pepper, red onion, and shredded cheese, or be a little more conservative and get a Veggie Lovers pizza with green pepper, onion, mushrooms, tomato, and black olives. It never hurts to get some sweet ricotta-filled cannolis for dessert.

Pizza Pazza


At this Neapolitan-style pizzeria, you’ll find that craveable, soft-in-the-middle pizza with a pillowy, blistered, and crackly crust. Pizza Pazza ensures quality by importing most of its ingredients straight from Italy. It’s really about the pizza here, but they also have Italian classics like Polpette Della Nonna, aka meatballs draped in melted fontina, and meaty, saucy Lasagne. Since you’re here for the pizza, why not try the Ciccio Stuffed pizza that’s filled with mozzarella, smoked scamorza, Prosciutto di Parma, and arugula, or the Meat Lovers pizza, which comes topped with San Marzano sauce, fior di latte mozzarella, sausage, pepperoni, and ham.

Son of a Pizza


If you’re in Homestead and looking for that spot for pizza, wings, and potato skins, Son of a Pizza is where you can go. There is no guise of health food here, so go all out. The pies aren’t fancy either —it’s Deluxe, Hawaiian, or Vegetarian for the most part — but if you feel inspired, go ahead and make your own. Mix and match the usual suspects, like mushrooms, bacon, and green peppers. Grab a basket of wings, fries, or calamari, and you’ll be set for a rib-sticking dinner.

Rey’s Pizza


You can find Rey’s all over the Miami area. They don’t sacrifice quality on any front. They use California whole milk mozzarella, imported Gouda and Romano cheeses, their sauce is custom-made, and nothing is ever frozen. They bring a bit of the local Cuban flair to their pies, too, topping them with jamón, plantains, and picadillo. One of the rare pizzerias that’s open 24 hours, they also serve breakfast in addition to most of their pies. Try a classic café Cubano, or start your day with one of their shakes. There seems to be nothing Rey’s can't do.

Ironside Kitchen Pizza and Coffee (Miami)


Tucked into a residential part of Miami’s Little River neighborhood, you’ll find Ironside Kitchen, known for its adorable outdoor patio and popular BYOB policy. Those with a taste for spice will love the Indiavolata made with mozzarella fior di latte, tomato sauce, salami, and Calabrian chili peppers. . While the pizza is great, the bestseller is their homemade tiramisu, so make sure to add one to your cart.

Apizza Brooklyn Resto + Vino


Made by real deal Brooklyn Italians, this Pinecrest restaurant has a huge handwritten specials board that’s updated frequently. Fortunately, those can also be found via DoorDash in their “Weekly Specials” section, ensuring that you’re not missing out on any of the good stuff. When it comes to the pizza, guests have the chance to go full Brooklyn (with 12- and 18-inch options) or opt for Neapolitan-style pizza. You can go for big and bold with pizzas like the White Hot made with gorgonzola, smoked gouda, mozzarella, parmesan, spicy calabrese salami, arugula, Parmigiano Reggiano, garlic, and extra virgin olive oil; or the Montague St made with fig, caramelized onions, goat cheese, shaved parmesan, thyme, and extra virgin olive oil. Or just keep it simple with the Arugula Margherita — fresh homemade mozzarella, parmesan, and of course, arugula.
