Buddy's and Supino's are on the list:

  1. I think the only pies I would put on my bucket list are from Matthew's in Baltimore, and Frank Pepe's.

    IMO, a great Detroit pizza can stand up to any other cities' offerings.

    1. Not only are Buddy's and Supino's there, but there's a place in Texas that sells Detroit-style pizza.

      Detroit-style is sweeping the nation (if you watch NFNS, you'll know what I mean!)

        What is "Detroit-style"? Is it the type of crust? The ingredients? The order of the layers? None of the above? In the article they each look different but good in their own way.

            monkeyrotica, if I were to try just one version (it appears there are multiple) or one place that serves it, which would you recommend?

            The crust, its magic. Beyond being twice baked and slathered with butter, there's a grit to the dough that escapes me. I tried to duplicate it for years when I lived in Detroit. All sorts of Italian flours with course grinds mixed in, nada.

            Its a dough that deserves fresh toppings of high quality. None of the stuff in a bottle or industrial mozzarella.

              Thanks Ray2! I am going to seek out Buddy's when I am in the area next month.
