      A very loud second to this recommendation. Fresco is wonderful.

        An enthusiastic "third" to the Fresco recommendation. It is the truest-to-Neapolitan-style pizza in the area.

          So happy to see that this place is catching on!!! It is our favorite as well.

    2. Oakland county is a large and winding shaped area. Which town is your home base?
      Fresco is quite good to me also. Also Crust and Tomatoes Apizza. There are a couple places now in Royal Oak, too. Here is a good thread: Happy pizza-ing.

      1. Loui's Pizza in Hazel Park is my go-to pizza joint.

            alibi is our go to for eat in or non-chain carry out (jets)

            also like cust in rochester, fresco, and the gathering place in troy for square.

              Alibi's used to be our favorite when it was a tiny little hole in the wall. I lived a couple streets away and our family used to buy pizza from there every Friday. The pizza was a whole lot better then. Their fish dinner is still great and so are their salads like the greek and the anitpasto. Would skip the pasta to be honest.

                I'm a former Michigander now living in Arizona and also used to live a couple blocks from Alibi. I was in MI last summer and got carryout pizza from Alibi on two occasions and it was as good as I remember.

                  The pizza has changed though from when it was a small little bar, though many people never knew about them back then. They use different mushrooms and they don't add cornmeal anymore to the bottom. I guess we were just spoiled from eating there way back when I was a kid. (We lived 2 streets away from the Alibi on DeEtta street and my brother and I used to walk up there Friday nights and get the weekly pizza and fish meal for the family) Their fish is just as good. Can't find a better fish dinner! I guess it is just a matter of personal taste.
