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.
