The Best Pizzas in Pure Michigan

Pizza may have originated in Italy, but there's no doubt that it's now a quintessential American food, right up there with apple pie, cheeseburgers, and Pop Tarts.
In fact, pizza has a long and rich history in the state of Michigan.
Two of the top four pizza chains in the country - Domino's and Little Caesars - originated in southeast Michigan. And, if you were lucky enough to make it to the Humungus Fungus fest in Crystal Falls earlier this month, you would have had a chance to see, and taste, the world's largest mushroom pizza, a fungus-topped concoction 10 feet long by 10 feet wide.
If there's one food Michiganders across the state know and love, it's pizza.
If you're looking for the best pizza in Michigan, here are a few suggestions for where to grab a slice or a pie.
Fricano's Pizza Tavern - 1400 Fulton Street, Grand Haven, MI 49417, and four additional locations
In our unofficial poll of Twitter and Facebook fans earlier this year for best pizza in Michigan, Fricano's was the clear winner. The original location in Grand Haven opened in 1949 and is still open to this day, but if you can't make it there, four additional locations on the west side of the state serve up the famous pies.
