Here in Detroit, we have our own style pizza – Detroit Style Pizza. But some of the pizza that the whole world knows and loves started in Metro Detroit. Little Caesars Pizza was born in the metro Detroit area and was the brain child of Mike Ilitch. Throughout his life Ilitch and his family have supported the city of Detroit and have invested in the revitalization of our city.
As homage to Mike Ilitch, inside the new Little Caesar’s Arena is a pizza place that fans of artisan pizza can enjoy – Mike’s Pizza Bar. No, you wont find Little Caesars pizza here, instead you’ll find new recipes, well thought out appetizers, healthier options and a full gluten free menu -there is absolutely something for everyone.
We dined at Mike’s Pizza Bar and were treated to a variety of menu items. It is more than just a pizza place, but offers a place to hang out, one to meet with friends before a show and one where you can enjoy micro brews from local places throughout the state. With a fun interior and a variety of places to sit inside and out, it may become one of your favorite places to stop into on a lunch break or even just for a date night.
The pizza will not disappoint you, and don’t worry you can get Detroit Style Pizza there as well. But look for more custom recipes, some delicious bruschetta and desserts that will make you come back for more. The food, design and history of the Ilitch family shines thru as well as their passion for the city and their craft.
Mike’s Pizza Bar is located at 2515 Woodward Ave, Detroit – with entrances from Woodward and inside Little Caesars Arena. You Can find their menu online and even get it delivered with Door Dash!
