Look for the small but extremely popular Poughkeepsie pizza place television.

New Yorkers may think that they have the lock on good pizza but I hate to be the bearer of some delicious bad news. New York City is not the best pizza city in the nation. It's not the Bronx or Brooklyn either.

According to a new ranking from Anytime Estimate, Detroit has the highest amount of independent pizza places per capita with 6 shops per 100,000 residents. I love Detroit-style pizza and I know I'm not alone because it is quickly growing in popularity.

Thankfully, you can find some amazing Detroit-style pizza here in Upstate New York made passionately by someone who grew up in Detroit.
