Are you saying that you believe these chains are the only pizza available in Detroit??

No hyperbole here - the respect of other nations around the world is slowly eroding because of this! These companies and the taste of their product may well cost us the support of our allies if we're not careful!

It is not. In fact, if wanted a real taste of Detroit pizza, you would try Buddy's:

I was being hyperbolic, thanks :-) I just have a chip on my shoulder about corporatized food.

And I like Detroit, don't get me wrong, Michigan was known for great music and great cars and now it is known for crackers topped with ketchup and cheese.

That's what I was hoping to fish out, someone with pride in a Detroit original.

I confess here that I have a soft spot for Skyline (Cincinnati, I know) which I eat every time I'm in southwestern Ohio.

Check this out.... per a GQ article
Best Pizzas in America
What's "known" about anything is determined by who?
I know, just another opinion - what's that old saying about opinions....?
BTW I share your disdain of certain corporatized stuff - I went shopping today at the big hardware chains for something I needed.

Hello, what's the pizza like in Amman?
Here's a link to a slideshow which illustrates what a good pizza is supposed to look like.

If somebody offered me that pizza I would pick it up and throw it in the nearest trash can. If somebody showed up at a party with that stuff in Chicago they might just get punched in the face.

Yes, I like my crust slightly charred ala Buddy's - but then again the burnt parts add character. They're only burnt in a thin layer.

its good to see Buddy's on that list! I've always loved that place. I haven't been in a long time though and I don't live too far from the Original on 6 mile. Maybe I'll grab some this weekend

D.L. & Detroiters - Around The Korner pizza (square, charred, deep dish, carryout only) on Holbrook in Hamtramck was quite good, years ago, as I recall. It was my staple pizza for a while. Give it a try and let me know how it is.
