Brief History of Buddy’s Pizza Detroit

If you are a Detroit Style pizza lover, then you probably already know that Buddy’s Pizza is the birthplace of the Detroit’s original square pizza. They used a steel auto pan to create what we all know and love today, the Detroit Style Pizza. The forged-steel pans, borrowed from local auto plants, produced a very light and crisp crust.
