There are plenty of excellent pizza restaurants in Fort Lauderdale. Whether you want a genuine Italian feel or something a little more imaginative. There is a great pizza spot for everyone.
We all have our favorites here, New York-style, Chicago-style, coal- or wood-fired, Sicilian, and Neapolitan. Some have a thick, doughy crust, while others are praised for being thin and crisp.
No matter how you slice it, there is still good pizza and lousy pizza. However, Escape Lounge has narrowed down the Best Pizza Spots After a Night Out in Fort Lauderdale.
Manhattan NY – Restaurant & Pizza Fort Lauderdale
Who doesn’t love pizza after a night at the club? Manhattan NY is open until 4am on Fri and Sat nights making it the perfect stop on your way home from a night of dancing at Escape Lounge. This spot has a 4.3 google rating and is known for it’s pizzeria with a variety of NYC-style pies & slices, plus pasta, subs & wings.
Vito’s Gourmet Pizza Fort Lauderdale
Another great late-night option open until 4am on Fri and Sat nights is Vito’s Gourmet Pizza. This spot is located right off of Las Olas in the Southport Shopping Center making it close to your party destinations. We recommend you try any of the neapolitan pies, pastas, salumi & a piazza with bocce.
This high-energy Italian restaurant is inspired by great Italian traditions. The pizza is at the center of the Louie Bossi Ristorante menu, with a range of white and red-sauce pies cooked for 90 seconds in the restaurant’s 900-degree wood-burning oven.
The oven meets you at the front door and can be seen from every area of the restaurant. Visuals of moist sourdough baking into a thin and chewy crust, with blistering black sections, all while giving a strong smokey aroma that can be overbearing or just perfect, depending on your taste.
This spot serves everything from homemade pasta, wood-burning Neapolitan pizzas, home-cooked Sicilian comfort cuisine, and, of course, Chef Louie’s famous house-cured salumi.
Esposito’s New York & Coal Fired Pizza Fort Lauderdale
If you’re searching for a great coal-fired pizza in Broward, Esposito’s in Davie is the place to go. It’s the kind of pie you’d go long distances to taste. The oven’s high temperature provides a toasted, crunchy crust. From a standard mozzarella pie to Esposito’s Own, covered with ham, mozzarella, mushrooms, Roma tomatoes, and arugula and drizzled with olive oil, there’s something for everyone.
The family-owned restaurant also manages;
- Grande Pizza in Sunrise (where you can find some great Detroit-style deep-dish pizza)
- Annie’s Pizza in Margate
So this goes without saying that these people actually know their pies.
Luigi’s Coal Oven Pizza Fort Lauderdale
Luigi’s Coal Oven Pizza is a casual lunch and dinner spot in Fort Lauderdale, FL. Always sourcing fresh, locally sourced ingredients to make high-quality pizzas. They prepare pizza dough by combining high-quality flour with water and allow it to ferment for several hours. You’ll also get finely chopped veggies, meat, and cheese used as toppings. Side dishes range from broccoli rabe with garlic and oil, sautéed veggies, or Luigi’s special truffle fries. Visit this pizzeria to savor their unique pies in a warm and inviting setting.
Mauro’s Pizza Hollywood
Nothing tops Mauro’s in downtown Hollywood for a classic slice. It’s your go-to late-night slice hotspot, after a round of bar-hopping or need a quick late-night bite.
Mauro’s pizza isn’t your typical sit-down restaurant, but no one’s meal stays around long enough to matter. The deck oven produces enormous slices with a thin, crispy crust and a proper cheese to sauce ratio which never gets too oily.
Your taste buds will thank you with this fresh never reheated pizza. This is a limited eatery with no silverware, take-away toppings, and no chairs. Instead, you eat with your hands from a paper plate with a few hundred napkins while standing.
Villa Rose Fort Lauderdale
Villa Rose is a family-run pizzeria that has been there since 1975, a testament to its excellent cuisine. Pizza aromas are sure to hit you instantly once you step through the door. The pies here are Chicago-style thin crust, and despite a few distinctive variants, such as the Villa Rose special, the regular cheese pie is one of the best in town.
The pie is served in squares, with a smooth layer of rich, herb-flecked tomato sauce layered beneath a thin coating of bubbling melted cheese. The crust is light, but it’s also malleable and chewy, and it’s been baked just long enough to provide a lot of flavor without being burned or blackened on the edges.
When you’re out and about, it’s convenient to have some go-to alternatives for a late-night meal. Even as the number of food trucks grows and the fast-food drive-thru window remains open, it’s good to be able to get a snack without having to hold it in your hand or eat out of your car. This list includes both pubs with extended kitchen hours than usual and eccentric sit-down eateries.
