Florence, Italy is well known for foods such as Bistecca alla Fiorentina (Florentine Steak), fagioli (beans) and Cinghiale (wild boar) to name just a few – but what about the pizza in Florence? I’ve tried more pizza in Florence than any other place in Italy, and I can tell you that the Florentines have nailed it. The pizza in Florence is good, really good!

The best traditional pizza in Florence is found right here at Pizzeria Spera. I love the location, found near the Santa Maria Novella Station and Fortezza da Basso. The base of the pizza here is thick and blisters perfectly in the wood-fired oven.

Fresh ingredients are generous and a good range of pizza toppings to choose from. You’ll find that pizza in Florence can be kinda expensive, but not here – pizza is affordable and delicious! The staff are fun and super friendly too.

A hidden gem close to Piazzale Michelangelo, one of the city’s most iconic viewpoints. With 40+ types of pizza and great calzones too, this place knows a thing or two about what pizza in Florence should taste like.

The ‘white tiger’ pizza is fantastic. The best thing is that you can get a cheap wine or beer to go with your pizza and enjoy it in this tiny, yet super friendly restaurant. Highly recommended.
