Few foods speak to the American soul like pizza. Pizzas have become the most popular food in America with entire football fields eaten daily. In Michigan you can find a pizza places all over. You can make pizza however you like it. It doesn’t have to be unhealthy, maybe you use it to pile on the veggies for the kids. Or it can be a decadent special treat for yourself and family with all that oozy-gooey cheese you love.
There are also several different styles of pizza. The Chicago deep dish, famous for its thick crust topped with mounds of cheese and chunky tomato sauce is an excellent example. Other popular styles include Greek style, Neapolitan, Sicilian, and perhaps even Michigan style?
You may love only a specific style of pizza or you may love them all and enjoy savoring the differences of each. We focused on trying to choose not specific styles but a variety of styles that stood out in Michigan because we want you to be able to find something for every palette in your family.
