The Dish

The Detroiter from Buddy’s Pizza

Posted

Celebrated Detroit pizza chain Buddy’s has finally landed in Lansing. The coronavirus delayed its grand opening, but now that the rules are loosening — for better or worse — Lansing can finally enjoy the square-shaped goodness that Buddy’s has to offer.

To get an idea for what Buddy’s Pizza thinks its customers should have, I went with one of its signature options, the Detroiter. I opted for takeout instead of dine-in.

The Detroiter is made of Wisconsin brick cheese, pepperoni, tomato basil sauce, shaved Parmesan cheese and Buddy’s Sicilian spice blend. The ingredients played off of each other extremely well.

If I had to pick the standout topping, honestly, it would be the cheese. It was absolutely delicious. Yes, I recognize this is a very typical ingredient list for a pizza, but the sheer quality of it made it feel like I was experiencing something brand new.

My immediate reaction is that Buddy’s is very similar to Jet’s, except leagues above it. Where I find fault in Jet’s — far too greasy, overbearingly thick and crunchy crust — I find fortune in Buddy’s. I predict that it won’t take long for Lansing to fall in love with Buddy’s. I know it’s going to become one of my new favorite spots.
