It’s hard to make bad pizza but it’s really hard to make good pizza. Round pizza, square pizza, thick crust, thin crust, deep dish, coal fired, wood burning, grilled, white, red, anchovies, no anchovies . . . the options are endless but they can all be delicious when done right. Although opinions vary greatly on this subject, I hope to bring you the best of the best (in my opinion) from around the country and around the world in this new series, Pizza Hot Spot.
Pizza Hot Spot: Buddy’s Pizza Where: Detroit, Michigan (multiple locations) Type: Sicilian style
What’s hot: The crispy burnt edges where cheese meets crust meets pan. Oh my! Order only the small size where you get just 4 supremely crispy corner pieces and no middles. Trust me on this. Any classic toppings pair well with the sweet sauce ladled over the cheese and topped with a splash of olive oil fresh out of the oven.
