Anyone who’s visited Supino Pizzeria on a Saturday afternoon knows its popularity. When the market is in full swing, the line often stretches out the door as hungry suburbanites and city dwellers alike line up for a slice of their favorite pizza.

While the pizza it worth every minute of the wait, Detroiters in-the-know visit Supino’s on weeknights, when lines are more manageable and you’re more likely to find a mix of regulars from the neighborhood and students from Wayne State or CCS, and maybe the occasional movie star. Mad Men’s Christina Hendricks, in town filming How to Catch a Monster, recently described the pies as the best pizza she’s ever had.

She’s not alone in her assessment. Supino’s has been highlighted on Food network’sDiners, Drive-Ins and Dives, and recently topped the 2013 Zagat ratings for metro Detroit, beating out some of the cities best steak houses, bistros and fine dining establishments.

This hole-in-the-wall pizza joint has just a few tables but serves up mind-blowingly good pizza. In a city known for it’s deep dish, Supino’s boldly dares to offer thin crust pies. Inspired by the pizzas made in backyard brick ovens by his relatives in the Italian village of Supino, Founder Dave Mancini opened Supino Pizzeria in 2008.

In the Old World Italian style, Supino’s pizzas are made with hand-stretched thin crust, and come in 12” or 18” pies. Light and crispy, the crust is just soft enough to fold your slice as you take a bite, not floppy. They’ve managed to perfect the ideal sauce-to-crust ratio, allowing the toppings to shine. Many of the ingredients are sourced directly from Eastern Market.

Pizzas are offered “red” (with sauce) or “white” (without sauce), and topped with a unique combination of ingredients that make each bite packed with flavor. The Bismark is a favorite, topped with fresh mozzarella, prosciutto and an egg. We literally have dreams about this pizza.

Regulars also love The Supino, topped with roasted garlic, black olives, chili oil, ricotta and mozzarella, as well as the City Wing Thing pizza made with smoked turkey, cherry peppers, smoked Gouda, mozzarella and roasted garlic.

Cheese fans swoon over the Quattro Formaggio. Topped with fresh mozzarella, smoked Gouda, chevre, feta, and chopped parsley, this pie stands head and shoulders above the plain cheese pizza you’d find anywhere else.

Our favorite white pizza is The Primavera. Topped with fresh tomatoes, artichokes, eggplant, red onion, mozzarella and spinach, it’s a flavorful delight. The veggies always seem to be cooked just enough to be tender without getting soggy.

The entire menu is stacked with delicious favorites; you’d be hard pressed to find a bad pie in the bunch. Go off-menu and choose your own toppings if you’re feeling creative.

Supino’s makes a great dinner on those nights when you’re too tired to cook (or just craving good pizza). Order a few pies for your next gameday get-together and you’ll quickly earn a reputation as the best host in town. Call ahead and order a pizza to-go if you’ want to avoid the long wait on those busy market Saturdays.
