Frankie's Pizza is the king of old-school flavor

👋 Martin here. Our journey to find the best pizza in Miami took me to a legendary little shop in Westchester: Frankie's Pizza.

Catch up fast: Walking into Frankie's feels like stepping on hallowed ground. It opened in 1955 and is "by far Miami's oldest pizza shop," per their website.

State of plate: I ordered a large pizza with half cheese and half ham, salami and beef ($21).

  • The square slices are chunky, but still light and crispy. The crust is like biting into a fresh piece of focaccia.

If you go: Open Sunday–Thursday from 11am–10pm, and until 11pm Friday and Saturday at 9118 Bird Road. Closed Monday.

📬 Email [email protected] with your favorite pizzeria in the 305, and we might feature it in our upcoming pizza tournament!
