So worth the trip: Miami’s Cuban sandwich pizza

When we first heard that a restaurant in Miami was serving Cuban sandwich pizza, we were beyond intrigued — and maybe a little skeptical. The internet was divided on the idea, because of course it was.

Some thought the pizza-Cuban sandwich hybrid was monstrosity, others thought it was ingenious.

Of course, the recent positive review by Miami.com’s Howard Cohen has dispelled the notion that this pizza is simply a gimmick. The ingredients come together to provide a crispy, tangy, melty slice of Miami flavor.

The foodie behemoth is the result of a partnership between Versailles Cuban restaurant and Harry’s Pizzeria and Genuine Pizza, and they are a trio made in culinary heaven.

The pizza features layers of mustard sauce, bread-and-butter pickles and a mix of fontina and gruyere cheeses. It’s topped off with roast pork and cured ham.

These ingredients orbit around a crispy croqueta at the center. That golden-brown gem is irresistible. While just one croqueta should suffice, we wouldn’t blame you if you ordered a few extra.

The pizza costs $16.00 and is available at Harry’s Pizzeria and Genuine Pizza restaurants in the Design District, Downtown Dadeland, Coconut Grove and Aventura Mall, according to a press release.
