Passionate About Our Favorite Food \What do we mean when we say “Genuine" Pizza? It's a holistic, thoughtful approach to everything from the careful selection of ingredients, to the dishes we create for our menu, and the spaces you’ll enjoy them in. We created Genuine Pizza to offer a place where you can be present, without pretenses, and enjoy a great meal with great people. That's really what it’s all about. Thoughtful consideration of the details, while approaching it all with simplicity, sincerity, comfort and delight. “Genuine” is as much about what it's NOT, as what it IS. No bells and whistles, just food in a welcoming environment. Our pies feature fresh, chef-curated toppings and a tender, quick-fired crust. We genuinely hope you enjoy it.

Genuine Pizza is an amazing Pizzeria tacked at the entrance to the Aventura mall. Although it could be passed as a typical common Pizzeria by first glance, it is far from it.

Genuine Pizza has a light yet colourful, cool and cosy vibe. If you want to have a family dinner or a romantic dinner for two, Genuine Pizza is a perfect spot.

The staff is notably high-beat, positive, friendly, helpful and professional and the food is truly amazing!

The Tomato and Burrata salad with basil and olive oil, were fresh, tasty and simply delicious

We don’t eat Kale so our waitress, Cassandra gladly substituted it with lettuce. With the lemony dressing this salad, like everything we had at Genuine Pizza, was fresh, crispy and extremely flavourful.

I had the Very Green Pizza and Gershon had the Rock Shrimp Pizza with added grilled chicken. Two completely different pizzas, yet both delicious beyond words with thin and crunchy crusts, that makes it feel light yet full of rich flavours.

The Tiramisu was one of the best we have ever had. And, the fact that it was prepared in front of our eyes, only made the experience sweeter.

We were blown away by this exceptional meal. One of the best Pizza’s we have ever had.

We will definitely be back to Genuine Pizza many more times. We highly recommend this wonderful place.

I am a big foodie. I eat and enjoy almost everything (that is cooked well). The pizza was not good. Improvement needed on taste.

Excellent pizza, good caesar salad, well priced drinks. Only complaint was the music noise level which the manager turned down slightly at our request.

Pretty mediocre and lacks polish.
Recommend Mr. Schwartz visit operation incognito and really see for himself.
Pizza was fair and meatballs were awful.

Easy spot for a family Bithday lunch! Staff were most accommodating and welcomed our family of 10 from babies to grandma. We sat on the patio so kids could move around and walk out to the water feature and keep busy until their food arrived. They have a "make your own" pizza so little ones can spread their own sauce and cheese before the chef bakes it up (they need to add more cheese though!) . Delicious appetizers of meatballs . ricotta, glazed wings and salads too. Pizzas are nice for one adult. No pressure and good food.

Excellent pizza. Big fan os Michael S. Love Amara and been going to Michaels Genuine for many years. Consistently great respect for quality ingredients and preparation. Not my preference to eat in a mall but the food was worth it. Wish he would open a full service restaurant closer to where I live in southern Broward.

Great gluten free pizza. White pizzas with regular crust were very good as well. Service was a bit slow.
