This Miami restaurant franchise has a few locations, but we have to say our favorite is on Lincoln Road, perfect for grabbing a quick lunch while people watching or shopping the strip. On the menu at Spris, are more than a dozen different pies inspired by Italian ingredients, with your choice or red sauce or white pizzas. Go traditional with a margherita or Hawaiian, or try a slice topped with copious amounts of prosciutto, mushrooms, ricotta, Italian sausage, scamorza cheese, truffle oil, and other delicious items. 721 Lincoln Road in Miami Beach, 305.673.2020
American pizza was born in New York City, and this restaurant’s sister location is in Brooklyn and that can only mean good things. Lucali cooks up its pies in a brick oven with your choice of nine toppings, including portabella mushrooms, peppers, all-beef pepperoni, and artichoke hearts. The place is also known for their delicious calzones and for having dessert pizzas. If you’ve got a sweet tooth, try out the Nutella-drenched pizza option. 1930 Bay Road in Miami Beach, 305.695.4441
