At Least Detroit Can Be Proud Of Its Style Of Pizza

As Passover comes to an end tonight, my thoughts turn to Pizza and Beer, two of the many leavened items not permitted during Passover.

The Detroit Free Press thoughtfully comes through with a timely article on the sensation that is Detroit pizza:

Detroit-style pizza gaining fame, winning fans nationwide

Unlike New York's thin, wide, floppy pizzas and Chicago's burly deep-dish ones, Detroit's thick, square pies -- first made at Buddy's Rendezvous in Detroit in 1946 -- have never managed to make a dent in the national consciousness.

Buddy's itself wins scores of awards and often makes national best-pizza lists. But with its stores confined to metro Detroit, its thick but airy crusts and crunchy, cheesy, square corners remain largely unknown elsewhere.

Finally, though, that seems to be changing, thanks to recent high-profile wins by Detroit-style pizzas in national and international competitions........

I know what I'm having for dinner tonight.

Grandaughter prefers the big floppy New York style. She'll sit in the high chair, eat off ALL the meat and cheese and then wear the rest of it over her head as a hat.

Right after shul, I went directly to the local IGA, purchased a six-pack of Yuengling, and made the havdalah over the beer to mark the end of the festival.

Couldn't drink too much, though, because I had to help the wife pack up all the Passover dishes and get them back up into the attic.
