Best Pizza Miami 2012 - Kings County Pizza
18228 W. Dixie Highway

Boutique pizza has been overwhelmed by fancy burgers this past year, but the owners of Kings County Pizza in Aventura couldn't care less. Their Brooklyn/Neapolitan pies don't rely on coal-fired ovens or whole-wheat dough or truffled pineapple toppings. Instead, pizza lovers flock here for the crisp crusts, sweet tomato sauce, and melted mozzarella cheese. A slice costs $2.25, a medium pie is $9.95, and a large is $12.95. The half-dozen varieties of the basic bring toppings such as fresh mozzarella and crushed tomatoes; salami, caramelized onion, and eggplant; and a "meatlovers" pie garnished with ham, sausage, pepperoni, and meatball. Kings County also boasts the classic square Sicilian pie ($15.95) with thick, airy dough. You can get subs, salads, and a limited range of Italian entrées ($7.95 to $10.95) here as well, but pizza is the king at Kings.
