There’s a place to go in Miami if you want authentic Roman-style pizza, and that’s Pizzarium. Roman-style pizza is known for its airiness, using a light flatbread-like crust and a select amount of toppings. Pizzarium prides itself on thirty years of industry experience and a passion for the Italian gourmet. They use a special Roman technique to knead dough made from imported wheat and soy flours, a pinch of sugar, and plenty of water and yeast. That’s why Pizzarium’s pies are not only delectable, but also quite healthy, never an artificial colour or flavoring in sight!

Locals love to rave about this hole-in-the-wall joint with pies so good that it rivals even the most high-end Miami restaurants.
