Even though summer is almost over, you can still party in the city where the heat is on. Pizza Masters kicked off Season 2 in sunny Miami, and the heat was immediately on when Fran and Sal tried Thea’s Pizzeria’s artichoke pizza to see how it compared with their own back in New York. It wasn’t all about pie, though — the cousins also searched for the best Cuban sandwich and got refreshed with lychee cocktails after a charity golf game. And, of course, a game wouldn’t be complete without a few races around the course in a golf cart.
If you missed their latest trip, don’t worry — you can stream the full episode online below. For more of Sal and Fran’s adventures, check out behind-the-scenes photos from Pizza Masters Season 2.

Most of our daily problems can be solved with a bite of Southern comfort food, but sometimes fried chicken, sweet tea and barbecue just won’t cut it. If you’re sick of the same ol’ down-home specialties, try putting new spins on your favorite dishes like Little Big Town singer Kimberly Schlapman does on her show, Kimberly’s Simply Southern.
Whether it’s a surprising dash of cocoa in a savory dish or some maple syrup to cool down spicy chicken, we guarantee you won’t be bored with your comfort food again.
A tablespoon of cocoa balances out the cayenne pepper in Kimberly’s dry rub, and instead of big beef ribs, she opts for spareribs instead. When topped with smoked barbecue sauce, the ribs fit right in with your favorite Southern classics.
