About This Episode
The best pizza in Orlando can be found 19 minutes north in Lake Mary at Grato Italian Grille.
Naming best pizza in Orlando is a controversial subject as nothing seems to be more sacred to people than discussing which pizza is best.
Grato Italian Grille has the best pizza in Orlando because they have all three elements that are required for great pizza: dough, sauce and cheese. Grato makes their pizza dough and pizza sauce in-house daily. And their sauce is slow cooked to remove excess acidity leaving a rick tomato, garlic and herb flavor explosion!
Okay this episode is going to be controversial. Because nothing is more sacred to people than pizza. But I’m going to give you my pick for Best Pizza in Orlando.
19 Minutes north of Downtown in the suburb of Lake Mary is a strip center where you will find Grato’s Italian Grille. Grato’s is known for their pizza, garlic knots and salads.
Great pizza requires three things, great dough, great sauce and great cheese. Grato’s pizza dough and sauce are made in-house daily with their sauce having the right flavor of tomato, garlic and herbs – slow cooked to remove acidity – leaving nothing but flavor. This is New York style pizza so the dough is crisp with great chew and holds up to the toppings. I order mine extra crispy with Pepperoni, Italian sausage, onions, olives and jalapeno peppers. It’s goody good-good.
