Popular Detroit-style pizza chain comes to Montana

Jet's Pizza has announced its first location in Montana.

I usually prefer thin crust pizza, but maybe that's because I've never had such a good experience with thick crust. Maybe my opinion will change when I get the chance to try a new pizza place in Billings, MT called Jet's Pizza this week.

Jet's Pizza has over 420 locations in 23 states.

According to a June 24 press release, the Detroit-style pizzeria was founded in Sterling Heights, Michigan, in 1978 by brothers John and Eugene Jetts. They have a whopping 166 locations in Michigan alone, so it must be pretty good pizza.

Originally called Jetts Party Shoppe and Pizzeria, their specialty pizza is a thick-crust square pizza. They tout their special pizza steel, fresh ingredients and special dough, promising a crust that is light and crispy all over, not just around the edges.

What is Detroit-style pizza?

I've been getting into making pizza at home lately and the variety of styles can be overwhelming. Neapolitan, tavern style, thin crust, sourdough, New York style, deep dish… there are so many options and they all have loyal fans.

Jet's says their Detroit-style pizza has a “light, airy center, packed with your favorite toppings, surrounded by caramelized cheese and a crispy, square, golden brown crust that's baked to perfection.”

Jet's Pizza in Billings opens Thursday, June 27, 2024

My kid's birthday is the same day as Jet's grand opening on June 27th. Maybe I can convince her that we should go out for pizza. Not that it would take much convincing. Everyone loves pizza. I could eat good pizza 3-4 times a week and probably never get tired of the combination of cheese, sauce and crust of a great pizza.
