Here are the top 10 pizza spots in Metro Detroit:

10. Motor City Brewing Works (Detroit-Midtown)

Brick oven pizzas are light in crust, but explosive in flavor. Lots of unique pizza takes here and also - lots of great beer and a nice patio!

9. Ottava Via (Detroit-Corktown)

This semi-swanky spot in Corktown has a fantastic pizza menu, with both red and white pizzas and a wide range of toping options. Thin crust is the way to go. Great cocktails and outdoor seating here, too.

8. Niki's Pizza (Detroit-Greektown)

A Detroit classic. Niki's is the thick, juicy Detroit-style square pizza you're probably craving. 

7. Cloverleaf (Eastpointe)

Cloverleaf Bar and Restaurant is a spin-off from a founder of Buddy's Pizza, serving up a variation of the Buddy's original square style.

6. Sgt. Pepperoni’s (Detroit-Midtown)

The ultimate late night greasy pizza.

5. Jolly Pumpkin (Ann Arbor/Detroit)

Jolly is one the best at combining awesome food with awesome beer. Their mushroom and Korean BBQ pizzas are some of the most unique around. A bit thicker than other brewery pizzas.

4. Tomatoes APizza (Farmington Hills)

Coal oven pizzas with odd shapes and toppings, with HUGE flavor. Named best Pizza in Michigan by Food Network Magazine. 

3. Buddy's Pizza (Various locations)

A Michigan classic. The creator of Detroit's square style deep dish, and you can never really go wrong at Buddy's.

2. Green Lantern (Madison Heights + 4 other locations)

The ever-growing Green Lantern is a heavy spin on an old school pizza parlor. Throw some crushed red pepper on that slice and get to the next one fast.

1. Supino Pizzeria (Detroit-Eastern Market)

You really can't beat Supinos.
