The restaurant, formerly known as Visa-O1 when it opened in Miami Beach in 2014, is now called Mister O1 owing to trademark issues. An O-1 visa is reserved for "individuals with extraordinary ability," according to the U.S. Department of Homeland Security. So, yes, this pintsize Italian pizzeria hidden inside a South Beach office building thinks highly of its pies, and for good reason: They're exceptional. Only the freshest ingredients and premium-quality cheeses (vegan cheese is offered at an additional charge) are allowed atop the thin-crusted, crisp pizzas served here. Both 13-inch and eight-inch pies are available, and there are even two varieties shaped like stars. You can't go wrong with the classic margherita, but if you're feeling festive, opt for the Federica. This beauty is topped with San Marzano sauce, mozzarella, ham, artichokes, fresh mushrooms, and black olives. Delivery is available. Insider tip: The real star of the show here is the Star Luca. The unique star-shaped pizza, whose points are perfect little dough pockets filled with creamy ricotta cheese, and the center is layered with the house Italian tomato sauce, mozzarella, and spicy salami. There's also a vegetarian Star Michele variation with grilled eggplant, zucchini, and roasted peppers. These star-shaped pies set Mister O1 apart from other pizza shops in Miami and led to the concept's expansion to Brickell, Wynwood, and even Madrid and Naples, Florida.
