It seems almost daily I get emails asking me where the Best Pizza in South Florida is. Readers who ask this question do not realize how subjective pizza tastes are and that just because I like one style at a specific pizzeria doesn’t mean they will feel the same way. After a lot of consideration we finally decided to put out the definitive guide of the where to get the best pizza in South Florida.
Please keep in mind we have not tried every single pizza place in the South Florida area, but we have gotten to a good majority of them. Places like Stanzione 87 haven’t been tried yet, and I am aware they might be considered for this list if I had tried it already. Many times if a place is just awful we choose not to write a scathing review, since it is not our objective to put these places out of business. We are in search of the best pizza and telling you where to find it. Also it should be noted that we usually get our pizza plain so that we can compare it fairly at the thousands of places we try.
I am sure many of you will be insanely upset that we missed a place, or that you hated a place we chose, but we stand by our choices.
Without further ado……
