1. Ironside Pizza 7580 NE 4th Ct, Miami, FL 33138

This casual pizza joint graces the “should we really be parking here” hipster ‘hood west of MiMo. They're dishing out wood-fired Neapolitan pizzas, like the Diavola, with mozzarella, fresh tomatoes, and spicy salami.

3. Batch Gastropub 30 SW 12th St, Miami, FL 33130 (Brickell)

You know a bar is serious about keeping the party going strong when they have cocktails on tap (because really, ain’t nobody got time to mix drinks when Friday is in full swing). Boasting massive plasma TVs, ample indoor and outdoor seating room, and a solid menu of high-end pub fare, it’s a Brickell destination for boozy brunch (chicken and waffles, anyone?) and sports games alike.

4. Stanzione 87 87 SW 8th St, Miami, FL 33130 (Brickell)

Brickell's Stanzione 87 serves up authentic Neapolitan pies that take less than a minute to cook in the wood-burning oven. The mozzarella is made in-house and the rest of the essential ingredients are imported from Italy, so the pizza is as close to source as you can get in Miami. The space is pretty small -- with only about 40 or so seats at small marble tables -- but a glass-walled open kitchen offers quite the pizza-making entertainment. It's a pretty solid take-out option, too.

6. Proof Pizza & Pasta 3328 North Miami Ave, Miami, FL 33127 (Midtown)

If you’re not so into culinary ateliers and more into, well, pizza, you’ll love this Neapolitan pizza and pasta joint. Justin Flit of DBGB and Bourbon Steak is slinging pies like the Oxtail Mozzarella with black garlic, thyme, and caramelized onions.
