The Pizza Show: Detroit

  • Published: 24 January 2018
  • Detroit might be known as the motor city, but it's also the pizza city. Our host Frank Pinello heads west to try out the rectangular pies unique to the city. We start our tour with the classics—Buddy's, Cloverleaf, and Loui's—before heading to some of Detroit’s newer spots like Amar Pizza and Suppino Pizzeria. And it wouldn't be a trip to Detroit without a visit to one of the most infamous pizza names to come out of the Mitten State—Little Caesars. Motown is definitely the dough town.

    Old lady from little ceasars typical trump supporter.....asks the host to create something they can sell, he asks if he will get paid and she strays away from the answer to the question..... what a cunt!

      Pizza is overrated - it's super easy to make at home with exact same taste.

          When the host said, “very French” reminded me of that orange, unwanted garbage in chief bragging about “his” accomplishment of the stellar economy that his previous predecessor did during his tenure in office.

          *AND* I don’t care to hear it..

            Nikki's is so good. Totally underrated. I wish they had more time to talk about Shield's or some of the other smaller places like the Buscemis in the park. No great loss not talking about Domino's.

                          little Cesar back in the 90s was soooo much better!! It still tastes ok but it's nothing like the old recipe. Every fast food ends up cheaping out and cutting corners eventually.

                                                The one that absolutely owns my wallet (in NYC, anyways) is Lions, Tigers and Squares... that Mustard Pie is a sin against the Pizza Gods, but it's one of the best damn pies I've ever had .

                                                (For those not in the know, the Mustard Pie is a brown mustard base, corned beef, sauerkraut, and cheddar to top. A goddamn Reuben pizza.)

                                                  I'm from Flint Michigan.. my brother was a bartender down in the D and I've eaten in the very same seat Frank was enjoying his very first Lafayette Detroit style coney dogs.. I'm personally a Flint style coney man, but when I'm in the D I won't have a coney anywhere else. Also you can't count a trip to Detroit as a trip to Detroit without a coney or two from Lafayette.. PERIOD!

                                                          The Little Caesar's shit was bananas. Frank went in there and made a DANK pizza and Little Caesar's people started getting insecure, lmao. Was all good til he piled that arugula on there. Another commenter mentioned he did that so they wouldn't actually take his idea, haha, possibly. Then the Little Caesar's guys were quick to be like, "yeah, we don't care how good it is, we just care about selling to the masses"... basically like "calm down, homeboy", haha. And then, "We might swap the arugula for bacon and say it's our idea", hahahaha. To be honest what could have been super uncomfortable ended up being handled well by both parties. I enjoyed the scene and the dynamics there.

Instead different ethnic cultures and peoples are living side by side integrated(=added to) into a greater federal system.
