Pizza is like that little black dress we all have in the wardrobe. Pizza is like a nice pair of shoes. Pizza is good in winter, in summer, with friends, at home in the carton when we are alone and depressed, in a super chic place with our sweet-half .. in short, pizza is for every palate and it’s right for every occasion!

And if you are in Florence and you suddenly want to eat pizza???

We never say no to pizza!
So I propose here a mini guide to my favorite Florentine pizzeria.

FINISTERRAE

Finisterrae is a restaurant with a wide choice of always very valid dishes, from land to sea. But every time I go there, and I intend to eat something different, in the end, I inevitably take pizza! It is now like a magnet on my palate.

And the pizza from this place is truly one of the best I’ve ever eaten in my entire life!

The pizzeria is located in Piazza Santa Croce next to the homonymous and famous cathedral. It consists of 5 rooms each of which has a different name and concept. One evening you can eat in “Marseille”, another evening you will have “Naples”. But if you are here in summer, ask for the beautiful garden, it won’t even seem to be in the heart of Florence.

On the menu, in addition to the more classic pizzas, you will find a lot of very tasty and imaginative variations. Do not miss the wholemeal dough for those who, attentive to the line, certainly do not want to give up pizza.

The wonderful thing about this place, famous for its pizza, is also the pastry shop. Savor the pizza but leave some space for dessert because it is really worth it !!!

FUOCO MATTO

If you are near the central station of SMN, take a walk to Piazza Indipendenza and there you will find another of my favorite pizzerias in Florence: Fuoco Matto!

This restaurant has a very country chic style and combines the 3 great passions of Florentine people, in addition to pizza, of course, the grill and the wine!
If you want to try this pizzeria you have always remember to book because it is often fully booked not only by visitors but also by locals!

FERMENTO 1989

The Oltrarno area has always been defined as the place of locals.
That part of the city less traveled by tourists and foreigners. That part of the city where you can find small shops of artisans or where to eat and be sure to find some locals going around for shopping.

And even for this part of town I have a really top pizzeria for you!
It’s called Fermento 1989.

Here in addition to the excellent pizza made with dough up to 120h rising, you will find the warmth of the two owners Gianluca and Vincenzo who will fascinate you with the stories of love and passion for their work.

In fact, the place is very small and seems to be almost at home.
A few tables and the counter of the wood-burning oven.
I definitely recommend booking a table to try their fantastic pizzas.

And if you want to taste something different, in addition to the classic pizza verace, here you will find the Neapolitan panozzo, the stuffed Calzone the Fermento Pala, the F’cazz. In short, a magical and extraordinary union of culinary cultures that come from the lands where the pizza was born in the south of Italy with the Tuscan traditions.
The icing on the cake is the dessert, obviously the Neapolitan babbà!

DUJE

This pizzeria in Florence is located in Largo Annigoni near the Sant’Ambrogio market.

Duje was awarded 3 red prawn segments in 2020. Their pizza is just the way I like it: beautiful, true and stuffed with excellent quality ingredients.
