If you love melty cheese atop buttery bread, you’re probably a fan of cheese bread. Whether you get it on its own or as an accompaniment to your pizza, cheese bread is a favorite around Michigan, especially Detroit. Enjoy five of our favorites around town.
Green Lantern Pizzeria (Multiple Locations)
Green Lantern is legendary around metro Detroit for good reason. Although they’re known for their pizza, their Lantern Bread is ooey gooey perfection. This no-frills cheese bread is our favorite in the area.
Uncle Andy’s Pizza (Berkley & Farmington)
The Triple Cheese Bread at Uncle Andy’s Pizza is a triple threat to your cheese-loving taste buds. Buttery, crispy bread is topped with a blend of three cheeses, providing a monumental stretch with every slice.
Zino’s Subs & Pizza (Madison Heights, Livonia & Belleville)
Not only does Zino’s have one of our must-try sandwiches in metro Detroit, their Cheese Blend Bread is excellent. It features a tasty blend of mozzarella, parmesan, and garlic butter, but what really makes it great is the feta cheese. The feta provides an extra dimension of flavor that will have you coming back for more.
Cloverleaf (Multiple Locations)
Every bite of Cloverleaf’s deep dish cheese bread is a bite of Detroit’s history. The cheese is understated, letting the legendary crispy crust speak for itself. With several locations in the Detroit area, there’s no reason not to give it a try.
Perry’s Pizza (Clawson)
Perry’s Pizza is one of our favorite restaurants in Clawson. Their Perry Sticks with cheese are worthy of a visit on their own. They don’t skimp on the mozzarella, so prepare yourself for an epic cheese stretch!
