This tiny restaurant located in an office building just half a block off Lincoln Road is the ultimate definition of a hidden gem. In fact, it is so hidden that if you haven't been there before, you'll probably miss it. But once you find it, trust me, you'll never forget it. Owned by an award-winning Italian pizza chef, Visa-01 has become known for its incredibly thin crust (arguably, the thinnest in Miami) as well as for its signature dish: the star shaped pizza.

Most people will agree that what makes or breaks a pizza is the crust. Think about it. Whether it's thick or thin, cheese-stuffed or hand-tossed, deep-dish or gourmet, a good crust is key. And there's a place in Miami that does it just right every time: Proof. This place's Neapolitan style pizza is thin in the middle and slightly thicker on the edges and, Despite the top notch ingredients, no matter what pizza type you order, the dough will always steal the show. This is because it's made with the highest quality Caputo 00 flour and cooked at 900 degrees in an enormous wood oven, which is key in making the pizza perfect.
