    what the heck is detroit pizza? it ranges from national chains like dominos or little caesers (who have HQs in the area) to thick squares like Buddy's.... and with Buddies the pizza is just the sideshow. you go there for the salad!

    Frank's Pizza Palace on College Ave on the west edge of downtown Appleton makes the best (bar NONE!) thin crust. Yes, there are some who make to trip up here just for that.

    What the heck is 'Detroit style' pizza? Never heard of it. We recently got a Happy's Pizza in town. I've yet to try it, but already have some misgivings based on what I saw in the employee breakroom recently.

    My two favorite styles of pizza are Chicago style and New York style (with just pepperoni on it).
    People will miss that it once meant something to be Southern or Midwestern. It doesn't mean much now, except for the climate.

    In December I was in DC for work and met up with some friends. We went to We the Pizza and got a slice of one of their seasonal selections. It was roasted butternut squash, goat cheese, and balsamic vinaigrette glazed roasted onions. Oh. My. God. It was delicious. I am typically a cheese only pizza person but this was incredible!

    Detroit style is usually considered a square deep dish pizza with the sauce on top. Twice baked.

    When we lived in Grand Rapids a Happy's Pizza opened up by us and we would get it occasionally. Since moving back to Metro Detroit, Happy's Pizza is our go to chain pizza place.

    Twice baked? Can you describe that?

    I usually bake my own pizza, but I admit that I love Pizza Hut Stuffed Crust pizza.

    Because it's usually made in a square pan it is a thicker crust. You bake just the dough first and then add everything and bake again. Depending on your dough recipe and how hot your oven is, the cooking times will vary.

    That's what I thought. We had a place like that here, and it was locally famous. Take out only, and anyone who remembers it smiles about putting the box on the dashboard while they ate the pizza in the car. No one waited to get it home.

    Years ago I recall having a pizza in Pittsburgh - for the life of me I can NOT remember where it was from - that had a distinctive crust I never had before or had since. It was reminiscent of Buffalo style with that thick puffy crust but didn't have a great deal of sauce on it....is there such a thing as Pittsburgh pizza? Am I experiencing a screen memory or possibly an hallucination?

    YUM. Now you're talking. See, vegetarian food doesn't have to be boring!

    Edit: I checked the website and found a bunch of things on the menu I'd like to try. Um, do you deliver... to upstate NY?

    Vincent's Pizza Park made the Pittsburgh pizza. Vinnie died a few years ago, and the original place closed in 2012. The pizza was locally famous; Vinnie was locally famous. My former inlaws went there on dates in the 50's. The restaurant was a mess. One reviewer suggested that you bring your own silverware. His second place opened in my town about 30 years ago, and the rumor was that the Health Department ordered him to get new ovens, so he sent the original ones to the second place.

    I don't care for it, but will get one every so often for the novelty.

    Read the reviews - there aren't many, but they say what everyone said.
