LA’s obsession with Detroit-style pizza is officially in hyperdrive, and that’s certainly not a bad thing in our books. Just be sure to put Dtown Pizzeria at the top of your list. Operating inside Phorage in West Hollywood, this pop-up is run by Detroit native Ryan Ososky, who is cranking out the kind of real-deal, Detroit-style pizza that reminds us of Buddy’s or Jet’s (for any Detroit natives reading this). The crust is perfectly golden and crispy with a light, airy center that makes taking down a whole pie by yourself a very doable option. The 1946, which comes topped with a red stripe - not the beer, in Detroit that means a thick ribbon of marinara - and oregano, and The Goomba (pepperoni and fennel pollen) are standouts.

DTLA pop-up Dough Daddy doesn’t make it easy to order their Detroit-style pies, but this pizza is worth the extra effort.
