Yes/No Foods: Buddy's Pizza, Dearborn, MI #EcoTravelwithadoba

*Disclosure: I received a complimentary meal at Buddy's to facilitate this post. The opinions expressed here, however, are my own.

I had the pleasure of dining at Buddy's Pizza in Dearborn, MI last week during my "staycation" at the adoba hotel (check next week for my hotel review). I had been to Buddy's Farmington Hills location before, and also its Royal Oak take-out location, but never to the Dearborn one.

This location is conveniently located on Michigan Ave., in what could be considered "downtown" Dearborn. We started the meal with a round of Buddy Bread, and then came the pizzas. Ohhhh, the pizzas.

For those who don't know, Buddy's is one of the restaurants in this area famous for its "Detroit-style" pizzas (sauce on the top). It's also famous for its deep-dish pizza, so of course I had to order a 4-piece.

I ordered the Lake Superior pizza, which includes pine nuts, pepperoni, a Motor City cheese blend, fresh basil, a tomato basil sauce, and Buddy's Sicilian spice blend. I also added mushrooms and roasted tomatoes to it. At first, however, I was served this pizza, which ended up being the Lake Huron pizza that fellow blogger Mary from Raising Dick and Jane had ordered:

(in case you are wondering, the Lake Huron pizza has the same Motor City cheese blend, along with a spinach and artichoke blend, roasted tomatoes, and fresh spinach)

I couldn't resist ordering their cream puff for dessert, especially since another blogger on the trip (one of a few Canadians, actually) had never had a cream puff, and it definitely did not disappoint.

Service was also good at this Buddy's, and I would go back if ever in the area again. It's a quick drive from the adoba hotel as well as the Fairlane mall, so if you're ever down that way I encourage you to check it out.
