Best Pizza Fort Lauderdale and Palm Beach 2007 - Coal Mine Pizza
Readers' Choice: Pizza Rustica
The South Florida pizza wars are hereby declared officially over, and to the victor chef/owner Demetrio "Big Dog" Zavala go the spoils. Kudos are due any tomato pie emporium that not only fires up a coal oven every day (you really can't get those charred bubbles in your crust without one) but puts together combinations of toppings like smoked salmon/sour cream/tomato/red onions/preserved lemons or wild mushrooms/pesto/fontina/mozzarella/crispy leeks, along with less outré meatballs and ricotta or a classic tomato-basil-mozz. To say nothing of a white or black truffle pie with roasted garlic, black pepper, and parmesan (market price). And Zavala leads yet another charge from the Big Apple: no trans fats.
