This Saturday I went to the Museum of Discovery and Science in Fort Lauderdale (very fun even if you aren't a kid). After leaving around 1 pm, I stumbled upon a pizzeria close by called Pizza Craft. They have pastas, pizzas, desserts, and even a Sunday Brunch menu. I had an order of their "Famous Crazy Bread" and a meatball pizza. I can't even describe how amazing this food was. The pizza was cooked in a wood burning oven, so the crust was very flavorful. If you feel guilty about eating the carbs, you can take a walk along the Riverwalk afterwards.
