Before I even started the Burger Beast in 2008, many folks had nothing but high praise for Steve’s Pizza (12101 Biscayne Blvd, North Miami). However, Steve’s Pizza is a Miami comfort food landmark regardless of what the peanut gallery thinks.
So Marcela and I decided to drive up to Steve’s and see what this spot was all about.
My initial thought was that Steve’s would have fit in nicely with all the graffiti in the movie the Warriors. So it’s not a complaint since it adds character to the place.
While Steve’s serves individual slices, I felt we should order a whole pie to ensure we weren’t getting some reheated pizza with fresh toppings. Marcela and I couldn’t agree so we ordered half cheese and half pepperoni-half ground beef.
Half a dozen garlic rolls and a meatball sub were also on deck.
Sef, Rolls Up!
Steve’s Pizza folk shout my name, so the rolls are ready. The rolls were on point and we housed those before the sub and pizza arrived.
Next up to bat was the meatball sub.
This is a the standard meatball sub you find at almost every neighborhood in America. But, of course, there’s nothing wrong with that since those are the best kind and exactly what I grew up eating.
It was supposed to be half pepperoni and half pepperoni-ground beef, but I messed up when ordering, so Marcela got no peps. I had no valid reason to stop her from stealing some from my side of the pie.
The pepperonis packed a pepperoni taste wallop, probably cause they use those delicious little roni cup peps. Steve’s also didn’t skimp out on the ground beef.
Of course, the sweet sauce isn’t for everyone, but it makes for some tasty pizza.
I would realize many visits later that the pro move is to get the individual slices at Steve’s pizza and not the entire pie.
