The menu at Buddy’s is huge. On top of pizza, you can find burgers, sandwiches, pastas, salads and appetizers. However,if you’re going for the first time, you obviously have to try the pizza.
Pikula suggests first-timers try the original cheese and pepperoni pizza, that way you can get the flavor of the pepperoni in the dough and get a real taste of a classic Detroit-style pizza. The other pizza he suggests is the Super 6 Mile, which comes with pepperoni, onions, green peppers, mushrooms and ham.
“If you want to get the correct texture and correct balance, I would start with those two pizzas,” Pikula said. “Then later on, you can evolve into, whether it’s gluten free pizza, or one of the specialist pizzas, things like that.”
Another iconic item is the Buddy’s Antipasto Salad, which comes with their famous vinaigrette, ham, salami, the same Wiconsin brick cheese and more.
“The salad, particularly the dressing, to be honest, is just as famous as the pizza,” Pikula said.
