Yes – Buddy’s Pizza In Clarkston Is Now Open
How did I miss this? Did you know that you can get a traditional Detroit-style pizza in Clarkston? You can. I was today years old when I realized there is a Buddy's Pizza location within 30 minutes from Flint.
If you are not familiar with Buddy's Pizza, chances are you are not from Michigan. If that is the case, let me catch you up to speed with a quick history lesson on the birth of Detroit style pizza,
The Detroit-Style Pizza legacy began at Buddy’s Rendezvous Pizzeria on Six Mile and Conant street on Detroit’s eastside when in 1946 Gus Guerra and Concetta “Connie” Piccinato made their first square-shaped pizza.
Baked in forged-steel pans borrowed from local automotive plants, they were able to produce a very light and crispy crust which is now known as Detroit-Style Pizza. This was the first known square pizza in the U.S. and now, more than 75 years later, the pizza style has become a national favorite.
I am telling you, there is nothing better. Sure you can drive to Detroit to enjoy Buddy's Pizza, you can even buy a frozen Buddy's Pizza in some local grocery stores, and now you can grab one in Clarkston too.
Buddys' Pizza is available for carryout only at 5530 Sashabaw Road, Suite B. You have the option to use Door Dash of course, but I just want to be clear that Buddy's Pizza does not offer delivery from this particular location.
I have no problem whatsoever driving roughly 30 minutes (from the Flint and Lapeer areas) to pick up a delicious Super 6 Mile pizza or Greektown pizza. As a matter of fact, I may even drive to Clarkston tonight and get one (or two) when I get off the air tonight.
If you have never tried a pizza from Buddy's Pizza, I suggest you do the same - soon. You can check out the Clarkston location menu below. Be sure to send me a message through the Banana 101.5 app and let me know which pizza is your favorite at Buddy's Pizza.
