Buddy’s Pizza In Michigan Claims To Have The World’s Best Detroit-style Pizza

Detroit-style pizza is having a moment in the culinary world, expanding way beyond the Michigan metropolis. Similar to Sicilian-style pies, Detroit-style pizza is known for its square shape, thick crust, and crispy bottom. You’ll find the world’s best version at Buddy’s Pizza.

It’s not a hard claim to make that Buddy’s Pizza has the world’s best Detroit-style pizza; they invented it! In 1946, Gus Guerra and Concetta “Connie” Piccinato opened Buddy’s Rendezvous Pizzeria at the corner of Conant and Six-Mile. They borrowed forged steel pans from a nearby automotive plant to bake their pies, leading to the iconic crispy crust that Detroit-style pizza is known for.

Currently, the Conant St. location of Buddy’s Pizza is open 11 a.m.-7 a.m. Monday through Saturday and 12 p.m.-7 p.m. on Sundays. Visit Buddy’s website for more information, including the operating hours of the other locations.
