Florida Restaurant Has Some Of The Best Pizza In America
When you think of how many pizza places there are, it’s a pretty big deal that one Florida restaurant has some of the BEST pizza in America. Being from Chicago, I consider myself a bit of a pizza connoisseur. While Chicago style is my favorite, I enjoy it all. You can’t go wrong with dough, sauce, cheese and toppings galore. My go-to is a thin crust with sausage, onion and green pepper. But I also enjoy a good deep dish with a delicious buttery crust for when I’m feeling really hungry. But then again, New York style pizza, Detroit style pizza, Roman, Sicilian and Tavern style… I like it all. I love that here in Florida you can get lots of different kinds and one Gainesville restaurant has some of the best pizza in America.
