Best Pizza South Florida

Leaning Tower of Pizza

The NFL season starts this weekend so I figured it was the ideal time to update my Pizza Rankings.  Skip Dominoes, Pizza Hut and Papa John's and head over to one of the fantastic spots listed below.

Before I get to the rankings I must sadly inform you that Pizzeria Oceano is no longer serving pizza. This is a big loss for South Florida.  However, they recently opened a new spot in Delray Beach  called Swell Pizza which I suspect will make this list after I pay them a visit.

We lost a great one but I am happy to announce that there is a new addition to the list.

These are the best of the best spots for Pizza in South Florida.  Go support them.

*Rankings primarily based on standard cheese pies. Quality and flavor of the dough, cheese, sauce & crust are more important than toppings for me. But they can certainly enhance a pie.


LUCALI (South Beach)

*The calzone (with sauce) is one of the best dishes in town. Must get.
