Empire Pizza, corner of Broward Blvd and Federal Hwy, Ft Lauderdale. Wow this place gets some amazing press. Always a winner in the best pizza category. So I finally tried it. A friendly place. Tucked away in a small shopping center making it hard to see from the road for first time visitors. Look for the gorilla statue. Slices are big. I added meatballs and sausage toppings. The price was $4. That was the first sign it was not NYC pizza. It would have been $7 in NYC! A great deal in Florida. The pizza was OK. It was not the chewy glutinous dough like that of the great NYC pizza joints. It was a lighter more airy crust version. One of the best in slices South Florida? I think not. A place to grab a late night slice before 10 pm? Yes – CC
