In a city crammed with chain pizza joints that produce carbon-copy products, it's an unusual relief to find authentic, Milanese-style pies. Caffe Amore (3313 NE 32nd St., Fort Lauderdale, 954-565-2100) bakes outstanding traditional, thin-crust pizzas in a wood-burning oven, topping them with any combination of ingredients -- prosciutto, ricotta, arugula, sausage, mushrooms, and tomatoes. In the mood for something simple, on a diet, or lactose intolerant? The marinara, a cheeseless pie crowned with fresh tomatoes, garlic, and olive oil, is as good as any I've had in Italy. The large, for $7.95, serves two people; the medium, for $6.95, suffices for one. Only one tough decision remains: pickup or free delivery?
