Andiamo is a favorite neighborhood pizza joint that serves up our number one pick for meatballs in Miami. When it comes to pies they have a full page dedicated to speciality combinations or else you can play Frankenstein and create your own.
However, on a recent visit we noticed a pizza listed under "New Andiamo Pizzas" and on it was a pizza after our own heart: Sunday Pie.
It may have been another day of a week but this homey variety with sweet tomato sauce, mozzarella, meatballs, ricotta, spicy peperoncini, basil, and parmesan got us in the Sunday spirit.
It was an ideal pie. The kind of pizza combination we wish we thought of on our own. It was superb with sweet, spicy, meaty, and herbaceous flavors and a trio of cheeses. The little basil confetti sprinkled on top was the proverbial cherry.
Apparently, this pizza has only been on the menu for a few weeks and we highly recommend that you take a break from your regular pie proclivities and give this one a try.
Let's put it this way: when we left in a haze of the magical slice(s) we had and distracted by the cute guy in the car parked next to us, we accidentally drove off with the pizza box on our roof. Thankfully, the said gentleman tracked us down at a red light to point out our blunder. We blushed and stopped in traffic to retrieve this pizza from the top of our car and later stuffed our face with more slices to hide the embarrassment and fall back under the spell of the pie.
We forgot about this new pizza once and we vow never do it again. It is that good.
