You know how different cities make some sort of claim that some style of pizza is “theirs?” Yeah, we hear you Chicago and New York. Well, we don’t actually know if there is an official or even an unofficial Detroit-style pizza. But lets just say there is…
Certainly we know Detroit is home to Little Caesar’s. And of course we know that Domino’s Pizza is from here too. We like those guys, but that’s not what we were referring to for your team while you are in the Detroit area. We were referring to Buddy’s Pizza. They have been doing it since 1946.
Have you had that type of square pizza where the crust is thick but not too doughy, and the tall vertical sides of the crust are crispy and cooked to a delicious crunchy brown? Oh, man is it good. We’re not positive, but we *think* Buddy’s invented that style of pizza. Lets call it Detroit Style :).
They have several locations in the Detroit Metro area. They are all as good as the original. Don’t miss the antipasto for your appetizer. Enjoy!
