Metro Detroit / Bellacino's Grinders & Pizza

Most of us here in metro Detroit understand that “Detroit Style” pizza is a really incestuous offering. Started at Buddy’s, carried off to Cloverleaf by a disgruntled partner; swiped by another goomba when he founded Loui’s, and showing up at Shield’s as just another tweek on the recipe. I just have to say, “good on you all”. You all do the city, and Detroit Style pizza proud.

But I’m taking just a moment to recognize a pie originated in West Michigan and pushed into SE Michigan by a very small regional chain. Here is the 16-inch Bellacino’s Pride Pizza, a thin crust gem. This pie deserves to be in any discussion for Best Detroit Pizza! One of the most expensive pies at $17.50 for a 16-inch…but can easily feed four.
