The originator of Detroit-style pizza will soon have a home in downtown Detroit.

Buddy's Pizza announced on Twitter today that it will be taking over the former space of Angelina's Italian Bistro near the intersection of Broadway and Witherell Street.

This will be Buddy's 15th store after announcing its plans to open a Grand Rapids location in January. The original store, located at 17125 Conant St. in Detroit has been operating since 1946. The modest pizzeria became famous for creating Detroit-style pizza, known for its deep square pans lined with cheese baked into a thick and crispy crust.
