Ironside Pizza - Miami

Pizza fans of Miami, I have a great new spot for you to visit.  Ironside Pizza opened quietly a couple of months ago at the Miami Ironside campus located in the Little River District. That's a few blocks west of Biscayne Blvd. just south of 79th Street.

Ironside is owned and operated by the Toscana Divino team (chef Julian Baker) and they are making some of the best Neapolitan style pizzas in town.  The dough tastes great and the pies I've tried were cooked perfectly.  The sauce and cheese are great too.  I don't know the name of the pizza maker but he is obviously talented.

The non pizza menu is in the hands of Jeff Maxfield (chef de cuisine at Toscana) and continues to evolve.  They currently offer cheese and meats, salads, small plates and daily specials.  The dining area is small but there is ample seating in the outside courtyard area where you can see remains of the Berlin Wall painted by street artist Thierry Noir.

It should be noted that they just opened a cafe and wine bar across the courtyard as well called LTD Edition Caffe and Vino Buono.

It's clearly time to update my Best Pizza in South Florida Rankings.

*Please note that this is not affiliated with the initial pizza place that was located in the same space.


Margherita-tomato, mozzarella, fior di latte, basil.

Diavola - tomato, mozzarella fior di latte, salami, peperoncino oil.

Rustica - roasted potatoes, rosemary, porchetta.

Housemade nduja calabrese. 

Verdure al forno. 

Remains of The Berlin Wall painted by street artist Thierry Noir are located in the courtyard.

This is a must visit spot for all pizza fans.
