Former IT manager turned Brooklyn pizza king Paulie Giannone wasn't convinced Miami was the right place for his expanding pizza empire. It took the word of Jason Weisberg, who like Giannone left a lucrative career to mix and stretch dough, to persuaded him to plant a flag way down south. And the MiMo District outpost of Paulie Gee's reeks of New York City hipness. Paint-chipped ceiling beams loom over gray tables and yellow steel chairs. On the other end of the restaurant hangs a jaundiced light-up sign for China Palace Restaurant, which last occupied the building. Adjacent is a mosaic sign that reads “Size matters,” and off in a corner sits a blinking pinball machine of the Whoa Nellie! Big Juicy Melons variety. The pizzas here are 12-inch Neapolitan affairs that take on gorgeous char marks after a 60-to-90 second stint in a 1,000-degree Stefano Ferrara oven. The toppings range from a Miami tribute, with the perfunctory ham, Swiss cheese, and mustard, to the Hellboy, a Brooklyn creation that pairs spicy soppressata with equally fiery honey. Vegan pies feature tangy faux ricotta made with cashews and nutritional yeast. The crust needs some work to find the right balance of crunchiness and chewiness, but that drawback is momentarily forgiven in creations such as the Cherry Jones. It's littered with Gorgonzola and dried Bing cherries, shrouded with prosciutto, and then dotted with orange blossom honey. The musty cheese, the cherries’ sour tang, the ham’s salt, and the honey’s sugar all sing in unison to create a slice that tastes like nothing else in town.
