Sixty-seven years after Buddy’s Pizza originated the Sicilian-style square on the corner of Conant and Six Mile, the family-owned restaurants are serving up something new - in skinnier boxes. Nearly seven decades since the Motor City favorite got its start, Buddy’s Pizza has added a brand new options to its menu that are sure to have tastebuds talking.
From gluten-free and multigrain crusts to vegan and antioxidant options, offering a variety of choices without sacrificing the famed Buddy’s flavor is nothing new to this Detroit institution. That’s never been more apparent than it is this month, as Buddy’s Pizza introduces Buddy’s Detroit’s Original Square Sicilian Style Thin Crust Pizza.
“This year, Buddy’s is excited to announce our new Sicilian Style Thin Crust Pizzas,” said Robert Jacobs, Buddy’s Pizza president. “Handcrafted from our famous original dough, Motor City Cheese Blend and tomato basil sauce, we’ve developed four new pizzas – each with a thin, light, crunchy crust and bold new flavors.”
The new Buddy’s Detroit’s Original Square Sicilian Style Thin Crust Pizza will be available beginning June 24, 2013. The collection includes the following brand new pizzas:
New Yorker – Pepperoni, roasted garlic, tomato basil sauce, oregano and grated Parmesan cheese.
Mediterranean – Red onions, spinach, beets, tomato basil sauce, fresh dill and feta cheese.
Pomodoro – Grilled scallions, roasted tomatoes, roasted garlic, tomato basil sauce, Asiago and grated Parmesan cheeses.
Ultimate Italian – Italian sausage, red onions, roasted red peppers, roasted garlic, tomato basil sauce, Sicilian spice blend and grated Parmesan cheese.
Like Buddy’s traditional pizzas, the process for creating these new thin crust pizzas consists of hand-stretching and proofing the dough; adding a sprinkle of the Motor City Cheese Blend - a tasty combination of Fontinella, Parmesan and Wisconsin brick cheeses; spreading select toppings; then topping it off with Buddy’s tomato basil sauce in true Sicilian style.
As all of Buddy’s original pizzas, the new thin crust collection will be available at the restaurant’s nine metro Detroit locations in Auburn Hills, Bloomfield Hills, Dearborn, Detroit, Farmington Hills, Grosse Pointe, Livonia, Royal Oak and Warren.
“Buddy’s has been a Detroit tradition for over 67 years. The magic is in the pie,” said Wesley Pikula, Buddy’s Pizza vice president of operations. “We’re excited to create these new pizzas, and offer our patrons another great way to experience Buddy’s original homestyle taste.”
On Monday, June 24, each restaurant will celebrate Buddy’s Pizza Day and Buddy’s 67 years of business in Detroit, by offering customers appreciation cards. Once a month through the end of the 2013, cardholders can purchase an 8-square cheese pizza for $6.70 and add extra toppings for 67 cents each. Appreciation cards will be available through June 29, or while supplies last at each location.
