We gave this right angled pizza variety its own category. Square pizza is typically a little thicker and the toppings go all the way to the edge offering a flavor packed dining value. Visit one of the best square pizza spots in Detroit and get some extra napkins because you’re going to need ’em.

Voted as one of the top ten places for pizza by the Detroit Free Press in 2009, Cloverleaf is a local favorite. Gus Guerra introduced his recipe for “Detroit Style” deep dish square pizza in 1946. Fans rave about the crispy crust, generous toppings and affordable prices.

Buddy’s has been a Detroit trademark since 1946. The square pizza is about as good as it gets. The crust is nice and thick and the toppings are second to none.

Shields is very similar to Buddy’s, but their square pizza has its own taste. A lot of TVs to watch the game and great breadsticks. The secret is in the delicious toppings and sauce.

It’s the crust. The combination of crispy outside and tender inside is what makes it special. I don’t know if it’s because of college and drinking beers while enjoying Jet’s, but I could swear the crust has a slight taste of beer. Maybe that’s part of the secret recipe.

    Though I love Green Lantern and absolutely think it is one of the best pizza places in Detroit (being a couple blocks from my house doesn’t hurt either!), they sadly do no served Detroit-style Square Pizza. They serve deep-dish pizza but it is more akin to Pizza Hut Deep dish in that the round pizza crust is just thicker than your average pie.

      Green Lantern The new location in Royal Oak actually does have square pizza now. The madison heights store does not offer square just the round Deep dish. I think it is due to the lack of space to store the square dough at the madison heights location.
