Blue Pan Pizza Starts Dishing Detroit-Style Pie in Congress Park

A bigger space and menu at this second location


The day has come for Blue Pan Pizza to open its second location in Congress Park. Located at 3509 East 12th Avenue, the deep-dish, Detroit-style pizzeria starts service tonight and will be open for business daily for dinner only starting at 4 p.m.

Not as crammed for space as at the original location, owners Jeff Smokevitch and Giles Flanagin added a couple of food items and widened the beer and wine selection too.

The venue is not just great for pizza lovers but a good development for a neighborhood where walking is easy and the restaurant options have been slim. In the last 9 months, the commercial area around 12th and Madison gained Sweet Cooie’s, the whimsical soda-shop-like ice cream parlor, 12@Madison, a contemporary American restaurant from chef Jeff Osaka, and now Blue Pan Pizza. These options add to the already popular TAG Burger Bar, a family-friendly eatery from chef Troy Guard.
