The restaurant has been preparing a variety of traditional Detroit-style pizzas, salads and potato chip-crusted chicken strips since October 2020 out of a shared catering space for carry-out only.
“I grew up in Detroit and always missed the pizza,” owner Greg Tierney said. “When the pandemic hit, I noticed more and more Detroit pizza places opening up, and I had been wanting to do the same for years. I wasn’t able to open a brick and mortar shop right away due to the pandemic, but I didn’t want to miss out on the opportunity.”
The business will be closed Oct. 1-2 at its old location, which was at 1305 S. Hwy. 121 Business, Lewisville.
At its new location, opening Oct. 8, Motor City Pizza will initially do only carry-out orders from 4-9 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays. Tierney said once the restaurant gets settled in, there will be indoor seating, a bar and extended hours. 972-654-6276. www.motorcitypizzatx.com
