Pizzarium A Slice Of Rome (Miami)
***** Pizzarium A Slice Of Rome, 69 East Flagler Street, Miami, Florida 33131, (305) 381-6025.
Pizzarium…real simple concept— order at/pickup at counter–pizza by the slice, handful of salads-calzones-desserts.
The “hook” the pizza slice is “squarish” and there are something like 25 different toppings available.

Like I said a few seconds ago, real-simple concept. Tried the “plain” slice ($3) and enjoyed it. When you check Pizzarium’s menu you’ll see all kinds of “fancy-schmanzy” toppings…personally not Jeff Eats’ bag—that said, the plain slice was very good. This joint with its “combinations” reminds me of Starbuck’s. Whatever happened to–black, black with sugar. with milk, with milk and sugar, end of story?
Let me opine about pizza toppings…first of all, Jeff Eats could swear that small-chain Pizza Rustica (review 8/6/08) basically has the same square-topped concept, so nothing super original going on at Pizzarium…As far as toppings go, Jeff Eats thinks that pizza is dough, tomato sauce, mozzarella cheese—maybe sausage, maybe pepperoni, maybe meatballs- but that’s it. No way is a pizza suppose to be topped with pineapple, or fried dumplings, or scrambled eggs, or roast chicken. Call me a purist, but that’s the way I see this one.
Pizzarium is open Monday-Saturday 11:30am-10pm, closed on Sunday.
