3 Florida Pizzerias Are 2022’s Best, Italian Pizza Experts Say

FLORIDA — You don’t need to go far to get some of the best pizza in the USA. Three pizzerias in Florida were named among the best in the country, according to 50 Top Pizza.

The pizza evaluation website, which is based in Italy, recently released this year’s list of the 50 best pizza places in the United States. On this year’s list is O’Munaciello located in Miami, which came in at No. 5. The restaurant offers an extensive wine list and classic Neapolitan-style pizza.

“Directly from Florence to Miami, tradition is key here, and the menu speaks Neapolitan: the pizza is, in fact, the classic Neapolitan style one. The classic margherita is very well made and there are also many seasonal variations to it, the rest of the classic pizzas are also good. Wonderful seafood dishes are also served. The wine list is ample; the waitstaff is impeccable and enthusiastic,” a 50 Top Pizza review of EITHER’Municiello reads.

La Leggenda Pizzeria also in Miami ranked No. 8. “Giovanni Gagliardi is a true food artisan who has decided to let the art of pizza be discovered in Miami. He created a place to share his passion, creativity, technique, knowledge, and attention to quality with his customers. In his pizzeria, Giovanni carries on the culture and philosophy of the traditional Neapolitan pizza. The service is excellent,” according to the 50 Top Pizza review.

Roostica Wood-Fire Pizzeria in Key West ranked No. 46 on the list. “For a place like this, we had some high expectations and, at the very least, we were expecting a wood-fired oven and, to no surprise, it was there; most importantly, it is not there just for a scene. There is a lot of commitment to the leavening process and it can be seen not only in the Neapolitan-style pizza, which is soft and melts in your mouth but also in the very fresh and fragrant bread. the San Marzano. The atmosphere of this place is lively and cheerful; it is a place also suitable for enjoying a nice drink accompanied by some of the many appetizers. The choice of food, in general, is wide and you will often not know what to get; although, the lasagna should be a no-brainer,” reads the 50 Top Pizza review.

Fabrica Pizza in St. Pete and Tampa ranked No. 49 on the list. The two venues are similar in style: the large and bright environment, the open oven, the clean décor and the comfortable chairs, pizza experts said. “The pizza is thin with a slightly crunchy crust and the consistently fresh ingredients complete it perfectly. A note of merit goes to the swift and professional waitstaff, always very accommodating. The takeaway service is also very efficient. The pizza with chorizo ​​is definitely a must-try,” according to the 50 Top Pizza review.

The world’s best pizzerias are selected each year with the help of more than one thousand anonymous inspectors, many of whom visit an enormous number of pizza places across the United States.

When determining whether a pizzeria makes the 50 Top Pizza list, inspectors consider the quality of the dough and the ingredients used for toppings. They also take into account the restaurant’s service, the wine and beverage lists, and the attention and care given to customers.

New York City came out on top this year with nine of the best pizzerias. Portland, Oregon, and San Francisco came in second place with five eateries each.

Una Pizza Napoletana, located on New York City’s Lower East Side and owned by Anthony Mangieri, was named the best pizzeria in the United States in this year’s ranking.
