People often search high and low for a pizza spot that well, hits the spot. Pizza is one of those foods that can sometimes fall into a hard-to- please -everyone category. With good pizza being relegated solely to the streets of NYC, it can be quite a challenge to convince people—especially New Yorkers that Miami has some great spots too.
Pizza is just one of those foods. We Americans have some sort of loyalty to our pizza parlor of choice. How many times have you heard: “Nobody make its like” Too many times right?
I’ve decided that I would begin a quest for the best local pizza joints in Miami. One absolutely fabulous spot and a personal favorite of mine; Steve’s Pizza is where I’ll begin.
It is interesting to note that when the pizza arrived, it appeared slightly burnt. The cheese and pepperoni looked good, but the crust was exceptionally dark brown. I hate burnt anything, so as soon as I saw the pie, I was a little worried. All my worry went away as I dove into the first bite. The cheese was just the right consistency and flavor, and the pepperoni was very high quality. It was very flavorful and not oily. It was not crisp like it was cooked on broil.
Something I noticed right away is that despite this being relatively thin crusted pizza, there was no oil pooling anywhere on the cheese or from the pepperoni. I haven’t had thin crust pizza with this property before, and was impressed, because overly oily pizza can sometimes be a bit gross. I finally got to the crust, which was dark brown, almost black in spots, and reluctantly took a bite. Instantly, it became apparent that this was not burnt pizza, and no ordinary crust. It was pizza fabulousness!
And it gets better! Steve’s doesn’t sell just pizza. They’ve got a full line of baked pasta dishes & Italian dinners. But with such good pizza I’ve yet to make it to that part of the menu.
Another fab piece of the pie is their prices. They are pretty darn reasonable. A large pie is about $15 and it’s large.
Steve’s Pizza has two locales--one in west Kendall and another on US 1. Both delicious and both will be seeing my face every time I’m in the mood for pizza. Now that’s amore!
