Anthony's Coal Fired Pizza
27 Florida locations; ACFP.com
How good does Anthony Bruno’s pizza have to be to overshadow his wonderfully charred, piled-high chicken wings and mom-shaming meatballs? With crust precisely calculated for the job at hand, the fresh, flavorful toppings are the star, from the square margherita to the more sturdy meatball-and-ricotta and the mountainous roasted-cauliflower pie. If pizza qualifies as soul food, this is it.
