So I've been hearing consistently good things about this place and finally decided to check it out. If you drive in, make sure you park on Harrison Street, one street south, where you miss the perennially congested Hollywood Boulevard.
Doesn't look like much from the outside...
Or the inside...
And it seems like everywhere you turn, there's a sign telling you what you can't do...
This is the area behind the front counter. Click on the image to make it bigger so you can read all the signs.
While we were waiting to order, a woman came in and asked the guy making the pizzas if they sold subs. "This is Mauro's Pizza. We make pizza." And, yes, they sure do.
$2.75 a slice, $1 dollar for each topping.
What makes this pizza so great, in my opinion, is the crust. I added mushrooms for this first-time visit because I usually don't eat a plain slice but next time I'm going plain. It really doesn't need anything more.
Best pizza in South Florida? I'll leave that up to the experts [here and here]. But I will say that this is the kind of food that deserves a trip out of your way.
Simple, delicious, blue-collar pizza...served with an attitude on paper plates.
