National Pizza Week Ends Today: Five "Best of" Places to Celebrate
Unfortunately, pizza can be a rather contentious issue. Each year we pick the best pizza places in Broward and Palm Beach Counties as part of our best of awards. And each year, some people couldn't agree with us more and other people are pissed. That being said, in honor of the end of national pizza week, we've decided to compile a list of past five year's best pizzas.

Obviously, pizza can be a divisive issue, especially when it comes to style. There's little to argue about with Tucci's, unless it's whether to choose one of its signature coal-oven pies (we suggest the savory eggplant pizza or the simple Margherita) or to go rogue and build your own using piles of arugula, Kalamata olives, broccoli rabe, or prosciutto. They may not be the fastest pies around, as Tucci's makes every pie to order and doesn't stop until the crust has achieved just the right amount of char, the cheese has browned on the edges, and the sauce is blistering to the touch. Let others argue about the merits of thick versus thin; there are better ways to make use of your mouth in the presence of such flavor.
