In May Alan Richman dropped his Top 25 Pizza List in GQ magazine and in a related story somewhat counterintuitively declared Detroit the No. 3 pizza city in the U.S. The Detroit Free Press now seems to be reacting to the pizza spotlight—a little late but better than never.

What's interesting, though, is that the Freep story focuses not on the Sicilian style that Richman praised as being "flawlessly executed" consistently throughout the region but on the up-and-coming pizzerias in the Motor City. The paper rounds up 25 places to check out. View the list, after the jump.

For people who like hard-and-fast ranking, the list may come as a small disappointment. Supino Pizzeria seems to come in at No. 1, but thereafter the pizzerias are listed in alphabetical order. That doesn't bother me so much; if I lived in Detroit, I'd want to check them all out regardless. [Hat tip to everyone who emailed me this link yesterday!]
