Cousins Sal Basille and Francis Garcia, both authentic New York characters, who host The Cooking Channel’s “Pizza Cuz” and “Pizza Masters,” star in this entertaining video.
They tell the story how they became infatuated with Buddy’s Pizza while in Detroit in 2013.
“When I bit it bit me back,” says Garcia of the pizza. The two went on to open a Buddy’s style pizza shop called Lions & Tigers & Squares Detroit Pizza at 268 W. 23rd St. on the corner of 8th Avenue in New York..
“We call it Detroit Pizza with a New York accent,” Garcia says.
