One of the things that Buffalo is best known for is food. We have great food here and so many great local places to get it from.

Outside of wings and beef on weck, the food item we take the most pride in is probably Buffalo-style pizza.

Buffalo-style pizza is a slightly thicker crust with extra cheese, toppings that extend far out to the crust, along with a sweeter tomato sauce and cup-and-char pepperoni. It's glorious and while not the healthiest thing for you, there's no doubt it's great for lunch or dinner.

One other pizza style that's similar in ways to Buffalo is Detroit-style pizza.

Detroit-style pizza is a square-cut pizza that is baked in a pan and comes in thicker slices that are hearty and delicious. Its thickness is similar to Buffalo style in ways, but maybe a little thicker than Buffalo-style.
