Amar Pizza is all about bringing pizza and Middle Eastern cuisine together in beautiful harmony. For the brave --- try their Ghost Pizza, labeled on the menu with "EXTREME HEAT, EAT AT OWN RISK". If you choose not to go down this road, be sure to order the Tandoori pizza instead, which is just as loaded with delightful flavors without giving you a nuclear intestinal tract for the next four days.
Untouched by time, this Hazel Park pizzeria is a neighborhood mainstay for its Detroit-style deep dish pizza. The square pies start with a simple (but generous) layer of cheese and tomato sauce then get loaded with pepperoni, mushrooms, onions, green pepper, ham, or whatever else you like. Loui's has a kitschy but lovable Italian ambience, completed by the fiaschi bottles wrapped in straw baskets that line the walls.
Niki's is a delicious pizza spot in Greektown where you can get some Detroit-style squares with some Greek flair (feta, lamb, onion, and tomato).
A traditional Italian joint in Corktown that also boasts a backyard with bocce ball, Ottava Via makes tasty Neapolitan-style pizzas cooked in a brick oven, with traditional flavors like the Margherita or catch-all Italian. We won't stop you from trying a classic, but we suggest the Funghi, which comes with portobello, crimini, shitake, and cipollini mushrooms, and Tartufo cheese.
This is where Ghettoblaster was born and (arguably) where the golden age of Michigan microbrewing first started to take hold. True Detroiters will gather here to munch on brick oven pizzas and enjoy a pint on the rooftop terrace.
Located inside the Garden Bowl, Sgt. Pepperoni's will sell you their signature specialty pizzes by the pie or by the slice. They're open until 2a, so whether you want to grab a slice or a sandwich on your way home from the bar or a show, you're in good hands.
Supino bustling Pizzeria, located in Eastern Market, serves thin crust New York style pizza pies. This spot makes Detroit's most famous not-Buddy's pizzas, and while some people might come to blows championing the Bismarck as their Supino pie of choice, our money is on the Smoky, with smoked prosciutto, smoked Gouda, and the roasted garlic.
Lauded as one of the best pizza joints (and now, chain) in the nation, Buddy's Pizza is known for its iconic Detroit-style pies baked in cast iron pans. The celebrated joint has been perfecting its pizzas, salads, and soups since 1946, and now serves them alongside a beer and wine, and dessert menu. To help you make room for additional slices, the restaurant even offers a bocce court right next door.
