Best Pizza in South Florida
We've had 'Top Pizza In FLA' and 'Best Pizza in Miami' threads, but I don't think we've had a 'Best Pizza' in South Florida (east coast - Miami through Jupiter) thread yet. So here it is!
"Best" is such an arbitrary designation that perhaps "favorite" is more appropriate. I'll just leave best in the thread title since that's the word that everyone tends to use in searches.
Mona Lisa Coal Oven Pizza
2009 NE 2nd St, Deerfield Beach
Amazingly good thin-crust pizza. Try a margherita with sausage: fresh mozzarella and basil, delicious sausage, generous amounts of fennel seed. Sauce was very good (although I tend to like sauce just a bit sweeter).
The also have Italian desserts (I haven't tried them).
The pizzeria is in the little cluster of restaurants and shops just across from the beach. There's plenty of competition for pizza in the area, with Umberto's just around the corner and Bob's across the street.

"Mona Lisa Coal Oven Pizza" in Deerfield.
Drove by yesterday (Monday 12/26) around noon (A1A tourist season traffic in full swing so it was a quick drive by).
I saw what I thought was a paper sign on front window - "CLOSED - NEW MGMT".
Not sure if this is correct but if anyone has details please post. Could be they are just closed Monday, and they had 2 separate signs... not sure.
I had wanted to try as I've heard they may be even better than Tucci's or Anthony's.

Best New York-outerborough-type pizza that I've had in South Florida (I've been here 15 years) has to be from GG's of New York on 441 north of Commercial Blvd. in Ft. Lauderdale. It's got that puffy crust, perfect tomato flavor and chewiness I remember from eating a hot slice standing in the cold at a walk-up window in Brooklyn as a kid. I've never been in the place....we've ordered pies there for the office....but I've called to compliment them and tell them they nailed it....it's a nice family operation, originally from Brooklyn (see?), here for years. While I'm a plain pie purist, their white pie (ricotta, mozzarella) is amazing.
I'm also a big fan of Anthony's Coal Fired for that type of thin crust, charred style....love it with those tiny meatballs.
Also like Pizza Time in Coral Springs....a great Bronx-style pie!
