From the traditional to the avant-garde, these spots will certainly satisfy your cravings. Take a journey through some of the best spots around the area that serve mouth-watering pizzas you won’t be able to get enough of.


1331 Holden Street, Detroit

Created by Detroit natives missing the classic deep-dish style pizza that Detroit is known for while living in Pittsburgh, the owners of Michigan & Trumbull moved back home and set up shop in 2020. Pizzas here are made with either red or white sauce, offering a variety for each. Some of the Detroit red sauce pizzas include the Vernor Vegan, with almond romesco, grape tomatoes, roasted garlic, and basil, and the Stanley Stix with mozzarella, cheddar, and parmesan cheese, oregano, garlic oil, and vodka sauce. White pizzas come in flavors like Woodward White with mozzarella, baked ricotta, lemon zest, red pepper flakes, and garlic oil, or the Bagley Choizo with mozzarella, pickled red onion, and cilantro ranch.
