2015 Best pizza, meatballs and wings: Anthony's Coal Fired Pizza

The Fort Lauderdale based chain now has 50 locations and the growth is hotter than the 800-degree ovens that are so vital at Anthony’s. Those ovens turn out the pizzas in four minutes, with just a hint of flavorful char, while also bringing a wonderful crispness to the chicken wings, which are topped with caramelized onions. The meatballs, topped with ricotta cheese, are from a recipe passed down by owner Anthony Bruno’s grandmother. We owe her our gratitude. And it’s all served with great attention to detail. They get it right.
