Michiganders-cum-Kentuckians rejoice: Detroit-style pizza is coming to town in April under the name of Loui Loui’s Authentic Detroit-style Pizza.
Before you think, “Really? Do we need more pizza in Louisville?” know that while the dough, sauce and cheese shtick is well represented here, no one does that style here.
That’s good news for those who’ve not had it and an unexpected blessing for Wolverine State natives who love this thicker, pan-style pizza that’s not heavily sauced and cheesed like Chicago style or overly topped like what some call “Louisville style.” It is its own thing, and it’s darn good.
Seeing an opportunity to serve it here, Detroit native Michael Spurlock is bringing it to J-Town (10212 Taylorsville Road) in the building that housed Ferd Grisanti’s for more than three decades.
