After announcing a new restaurant in Grand Rapids and plans to take its brand national, Buddy's Pizza is expanding closer to home.

The Detroit-style pizza maker is planning two new locations in metro Detroit — one in Woodhaven and another in Plymouth.

The Woodhaven location 21611 Allen Road could be open as soon as this fall, while the Plymouth restaurant at 15075 Beck Road will likely open this summer, the Free Press reports.

Construction of a new downtown Detroit location is also underway.



The company invented the Detroit-style pizza at its McNichols and Conant roads location that opened in Detroit in 1946. Detroit-style pies are square, deep dish, and were originally prepared in repurposed blue steel factory trays that were used to store parts. Each pie gets a heavy portion of Wisconsin brick cheese that's melted to its edges, forming a thin ring of caramelized cheese around the focaccia-like crust.
