Working late into the evening, the doughmasters at Donny's Pizzeria flip fresh ingredients into Chicago–style deep-dish, stuffed, pan, traditional thin-crust, and double-decker pizzas. The kitchen's passion for overstuffing also shows up in baked pasta shells, ravioli, and tortellini packed with imported cheeses. The most decadent corners of the menu harbor treats including deep-fried Oreos and the much-lauded Epic pizza, a 20"x50" pie that can serve 25–35 people or serve as a small cot.

From the moment Bob and Rose opened Wayne's Pizza in 1964, they've stood by an unwavering commitment to fresh ingredients and from-scratch recipes. "We would never think of serving you mushrooms from a can," the duo declares on their web site. They'd also never consider a jarred spaghetti sauce?the marinara here is made with a recipe that's been in Rose's family for generations. And those chowing down on the lasagna have Rose's Grandma Rose and Aunt Dolly to thank for the recipe. Even the ribs are one-of-a-kind here, dredged in a spice blend unique to Wayne's. Rose and Bob's son Tony took over the family business in 2012, and though his parents have retired to cheesier pastures, their tradition of friendliness and freshness lives on: "A Wayne's Pizza customer," they promise, "is a lifelong, forever friend."

Specializing in thick, Sicilian–style deep-dish pizza, Jet's has indulged palates since 1978, when the eponymous Jetts brothers opened the first joint in Sterling Heights, Michigan. Crusts buckle under the weight of mozzarella cheese and toppings such as grilled chicken and black olives, accompanied by sides such as hot wings, cinnamon sticks, or Jet's Bread topped with cheese, garlic, and butter. Stacks of meat and veggies pile onto piping-hot subs, and a variety of healthy salads helps to avoid the wrath of the Food Pyramid's ancient golems armed with giant wooden tongs.

Thin crust or pan crust, full pie or slice, cheese-centric or laden with toppings, a signature plate at Lola's Pizza Palace helps pizza fans eat like royalty. But pizza's not the only thing on the menu, which also highlights homes-style-pastas, generously stuffed sandwiches, and salads customized from scratch. Still, for many, the Palace gets its name not from the food at all, but from the atmosphere its staff works hard to cultivate. Family-friendly, brimming with smiles, and clad in the colors of the Italian flag, the BYOB dining room is as well-loved for its festive mood as it is for its comestibles and marinara moat.

Lou's Pizza Factory produces pies topped with bubbling cheese, hot from the oven. During lunch, stop in for a slice and a soda, or peruse the rest of the menu for classic Italian dishes such as meatball sandwiches and baked mostaccioli. Thin crust and pan pizzas are decorated with toppings that include sausage, onion, and green peppers that can be arranged to spell out "bite me."
