* February, 9th- National Pizza Day!


As far as Jeff Eats is concerned, everyday (or is it every day?) is National Pizza Day…

Playing along with this concocted- National Pizza Day “celebration”… share the names of your favorite Florida pizza joints!


National Pizza Day on February 9th celebrates one of America’s all-time favorite foods. Whether it is thin crust, Chicago-style, deep dish or anything in between, pizza is an American favorite.
Here are some interesting facts about pizza:
Pepperoni is the most popular pizza at 36% of all pies ordered.
Over 3 billion pizzas are sold in the USA each year. Add another 1 billion on frozen pizzas
17% of all US Restaurants are pizzerias.
Antica Pizzeria, the first Pizzeria, opened in Naples, Italy, in 1738.
Lombardi, the first Pizzeria in the United States, opened in 1895 in New York City.

    Terrific pizza at
    Posted on June 28th, 2010
    ***** Barone’s La Pizzeria, 5632 West Sample Road, Margate, Florida 33073 (954) 968-4396.
    Barone’s La Pizzeria is a “Mom & Pop—red sauce” pizza joint located in Margate.
    You can check its menu/prices at
    You know and I know that “Mom & Pop” pizza joints are a dime a dozen-down here in old South Florida. I think the way it works…the strip center landlord first signs Publix, then Walgreens, then a Chinese takeout, then a pizza joint, then a dry cleaners…then a —-(you fill in the blanks)….then half of the businesses go bust…
    Anyway, the other evening, I gave Barone’s La Pizzeria a shot- and I gotta tell you, the food is real-good. Jeff Eats’ party did pizza, shrimp scampi, veal parmigiana, meat lasagna, chicken & shrimp alfredo, penne ala vodka—and like I just said, real good!
    As you know– over the past few years, old Jeff Eats has eaten-in his fair share of “Mom & Pop” Italian joints…and, to be perfectly honest with you, most of them barely get the job done, but then again, that’s the nature of the beast…”cheap is cheap”….”you get what you pay for”…”one if by land, 2 if by sea.” Trust me on this one, Barone’s La Pizzeria is REAL GOOD…if you live or work near the joint, I highly recommend that you give it a try.
    By the way, Barone’s La Pizzeria is right across Sample Road from the Seminole Casino Coconut Creek and is maybe a 3-minute drive (west) from the Festival Flea Market on Sample Road.
    Barone’s La Pizzeria is open Sunday-Thursday 11am-10pm and Friday-Saturday 11am-11pm.

    Awesome pizza,

    Valento’s Pizza and Hoagies in Naples.

    Love the pizza at Tomasso’s Pizza & Subs, 1229 W. Palmetto Park Road, Boca Raton, Florida 33486 (561) 392-8985.

  9. I love Villa Rose Pizza on State Rd 7 in Hollywood. It opened in 1957 and when you go in it’s like you went back in time. Other than for a flat screen tv on a wall you’d swear it was 1957. They make Chicago style thin pizza which is incredible. Villa Rose’s other items are also delicious. As Jeff often write, this joint is an absolute must try.

    • Andrew,
      Good call. I’m also a huge Villa Rose fan.
      Personally, it’s a tossup for me between Villa Rose and Frankie’s Pizza in Miami as to which one is my favorite. Like Villa Rose, Frankie’s has literally been around forever. They make different types of pizza, with Villa’s being cracker thin while Frankie’s is more Sicilian. Both are terrific.

  10. Marshall Lehrman says...

    Lucali in Miami Beaxh and Harry’s in Miami both make delicious pizza.

  11. Carl Furillo says...

    Love the coal fire pizza at Tucci’s in Boca Raton.
