In July, multiple banners and a brand-new sign announced the official opening of Buscemi’s Pizza in the former Buster’s Market at Liberty and S. Maple. Though pizza is only one of his offerings, owner Bryce Abdal changed the name of the entire business to that of the Detroit-based franchise.
“This is probably the furthest one west they have,” he says. Abdal runs another party-store-and-Buscemi’s combo in Troy, and says he’d often get customers there who had driven out all the way from Ann Arbor for the pizza.
A new counter to one side of the store displays pizza by the slice and a variety of Italian subs made with pizza dough. Customers can also order whole Detroit-style, Sicilian, deep-dish, or round pizzas, plus green and pasta salads.
Abdal says more menu options, in addition to online ordering and delivery, are on the way. In the meantime, he’s been offering a free slice of pizza to patrons in order to get the word out.
