As the old adage states, "pizza is a lot like sex – even when it's bad, it's still pretty good." Luckily, we don't have to settle here, 'cause whether you're in the market for goat cheese or plain ol' pepperoni, Miami is littered with transplants who know how to toss a good pie. Wanna get your hands on a slice? Simply bite into this warm, cheesy Weekly Yelp for a taste of the hottest slices in the city.

Cancel that flight to the Boot – some of South Florida's newest editions are rolling out crispy gourmet thin crusts. Hot out of the oven, from the same folks behind Quattro (and just across Lincoln Road) is Sosta, where Rob C delights in the Trento and reports, "Cheese ratio: good." Meanwhile, Jonathan Eissman has followed up his Pacific Time success with Pizza Volante. Pull up a seat at a communal table with the likes of Brandon B, who reports the "prices are very affordable, and the scene is perfect." Pizza, late-night hours, and $18 bottles of wine? Sounds perfect to us!

Long loved in Ft. Lauderdale, Anthony's has finally made its way south to Miami and received a piping hot welcome, with eager eaters "overflowing into the parking lot." Jen R insists it's worth the wait, as she's still "daydreaming about eating the heavenly white pizza again... every bite got better and better." While you're down in the 'burbs, also check out Carina's New York-style pizza, which Eddy A describes in two words: "delicious and juicy." Luis D seconds that emotion, giving the stone fired pizzeria "two very enthusiastic thumbs up."

Love bites, well at least it did for Annie V when she visited Andiamo. The story goes that she found love at first bite when she bit into her pizza, "oozing with sun-dried tomatoes, caramelized onions, goat and mozzarella cheese, truffle oil and portobello mushrooms. I've been in love ever since." Also proving that sometimes you just have to wait for the right one, Preston C shares, "Yes, I am Italian but I don't like pizza! Or at least I thought I didn't until I ate at Pieducks..." Now that's amore! And for something a little more novel, try Racks Italian, which offers waterfront dining, late-night hours, and complimentary boat valet service. Pizza and you're on a boat, beat that Samburg and T-Pain
