Who doesn’t love pizza? It’s classic, quick, and always delicious. Livingston County has tons of options to satisfy your pizza craving, but here is a list of the best 10 pizzerias in the Brighton-Howell Area.
Riverside Pizza has been serving the chain of lakes in Pinckney since 1996. It’s open year-round, but they shine in the summertime. Located on the Huron River, guests can visit Riverside Pizza by boat and dock right on the property and enjoy their fresh-baked pizza at a picnic table outside. In the midst of a Pure Michigan winter, their pizzas are available for pick-up or delivery.
Starting out as a food truck in the metro Detroit area, Rollin’ Stone Wood Fired Pizza opened their first store in Green Oak Village Place in Brighton. Customization is the name of the game as you pick your ingredients, which are often products from local farms, and watch your pizza made fresh before your eyes, before being placed into the 900° wood-fired oven. Visit them for lunch and dinner specials, adding a tasty salad or warm cheese bread to your order.
