Not only s Detroit the automotive capital the Motor City could be the pizza capital. With three pizza chains born, raised and headquartered in the metropolitan area Detroit, more than any other US city, the largest city in the Great Lake State could make an argument for that title. A poll released this week by thedailymeal.com has all three chains placed in the top 20 signifying the universal taste of Michigan’s pies.
The dailymeal.com survey looked at 100 chains across the nation and Domino’s Pizza of Ann Arbor took second place in the respondent’s voting. As America’s second largest pizza chain behind Pizza Hut, which finished in fourth place, Domino’s has an international footprint with their variety of popular and unique pizza, sandwich and bread offerings.
Little Caesars finished in eighth place. Their “Hot-N-Ready” ay have established them as a value pizza but the nationwide consumer poll found the low-price did not mean low quality.
Hungry Howie’s in Madison Heights may be smaller than the other two Detroit round meal companies but their flavored crusts seem to please the national audience. They were in 19th place of the 100 chains ranked.
Of course not every pizza restaurant in Detroit is headquartered here. Of the chains with a Detroit presence that placed in the top 20 are:
1) California Pizza Kitchen
4) Pizza Hut
5) Uno Chicago Grill (formerly Pizzeria Uno)
6) Papa John’s
13) CiCi’s Pizza
18) Jet’s Pizza
