Jet’s is in fact a chain from Detroit, or “The D” as the commercials tell me. I don’t know. I don’t travel. I know we sometimes get out panties in a bunch with chains, but I hit Domino’s in the review for sport, so we broke the seal on that a while ago. Furthermore, Jet’s has a unique gimmick in that they serve Detroit style pizza. These weirdos pan bake it so that the edges flair up and char like abandoned periphery of the once great motor city. If you thought I wasn’t cracking Detroit jokes throughout this bad boy, you’re sorely mistaken. Apparently this stuff is taking off like wildfire, so I’m pumped to give it a shot…just like I would be shot…if I were to visit…Detroit. They just made a fresh pie for slices, and I had guests to entertain, so I bought the whole thing. Sue me. I think the deal is around 2/$6? Off we go.

This are what we’re looking at from the top. Admittedly, my heart is telling me to critique the hell out of these because we aren’t supposed to like chain pizza…but goddamn this looks good. Melty browned and hearty slices. Nice pepperoni layout. But the lynchpin to the whole game…

…this is the side shot. I have been very vocal about my dissatisfaction with the whole “char” thing on pizza. This is a different animal entirely. I don’t know if they’re sprinkling some of that Detroit crack on this crust (I know they’re fond of that out there), but its salty, crispy, savory, and ZERO bitterness. It tastes like crispy cheese and I didn’t think I was going to be seduced by this shit. I’m trying to put the pieces of my life back together. This is good.

Here is the underside. Nice buttery pan-pizza action

Here is the dough itself. Also, really really good. Maybe a little dry in spots if I had to pick something out to dislike, but it was overall excellent. Enough about the dough.

Here are the pepperoni. The flavor and contrast to the soft dough reminded me of Bella Pizza a bit. They crispy, dog. I liked what they were putting down, but it’s no cup & char. Definite notable spiciness that worked perfectly on the pie. They were also pretty wide, so even though they were thin, they were still giving good coverage.

The cheese from Jet’s…also impressive. This is the area that most chain pizzerias fuck up, but what can I say. I don’t care where this cheese came from, or what weird form it may take in a bag in their back cooler…it’s good. It browned and bubbled, it pulled really well, it was salty and sweet. My only qualm is that it was a little chewy, which is better than being watery/thin.

The sauce at Jet’s is the most lackluster note on a pizza that is overall rocking my world right now. AND THE SAUCE IS STILL GOOD. It’s zesty and spicy, but a little watery. Maybe I’m just used to Buffalo sauce being thicker on pizzas similar to this one, but I thought that could be improved. Still, nice job, Jet’s. Let’s get you on the block, baby.

Jet’s…has really good pizza. SEND YOUR HATEMAIL TO THE INBOX, BUFFALO! [email protected] I went out for what I though at best would be a mediocre pie and ended up loving it. I will probably get Jet’s again. I absolutely recommend that you go give it a shot, if not out of curiosity alone. Now send me my gift cards like we agreed upon, Jet! No, seriously I am torn even writing this, but good pizza is good pizza. Plus, the profit off every purchase you make goes back to somebody in Detroit who I’m sure lives in the heart of that great city and is intent upon redistributing it evenly to the areas of the community most in need. Just great. Thanks, Jet’s! When you burn me at the stake, Buffalo, do it in downtown Detroit. I’ll blend in right in. Two more to go!
