NEAPOLITAN SOSPESO CULTURE IN SOUTHWEST, DETROIT

PizzaPlex is a pizzeria in Southwest Detroit serving authentic Neapolitan pizza - which means our style of pizza has been perfected over hundreds of years. Every pizza is prepared from scratch with only the freshest ingredients, and proudly cooked by hand in a wood-fire oven.

Along with this delicious tradition, PizzaPlex’s mission is to bring quality food at affordable prices for all, and strives to make it free for those who may not be able to afford it - through our Sospeso program. “Sospeso”, Italian for “pending,” is another Neapolitan tradition that PizzaPlex wishes to share with its community. It is a pay-it-forward system in which customers buy “pending” food items for anyone else to claim, no questions asked.

To ramp up this initiative, PizzaPlex has formed the Sospeso Collective, composed so far of 5 member organizations. These are some of Detroit’s most impactful nonprofits doing the work to feed, clothe, house those in need, and help educate Detroit’s youth.

We hereby proudly present our Sospeso Collective members and our commitment to them:

COMMUNITY, SOSPESO, SUSTAINABILITY (AND PIZZA)

Founded in 2017 by husband and wife duo, Alessandra Carreon and Drew McUsic, PizzaPlex is Detroit’s first and only pizzeria certified to serve traditional Naples-style pizza, known officially as Vera Pizza Napoletana. Drawing on inspiration from her mom's hometown and where Alessandra spent part of her childhood, the team has quickly garnered recognition as one of the top destinations for pizza in the Motor City.

PizzaPlex is as much a community-oriented social enterprise as it is a pizzeria: the team is passionate about partnering with and supporting various nonprofits across Detroit. PizzaPlex also offers a pay-it-forward pizza program that gives homage to Neapolitan "sospeso" culture. We let customers “buy sospeso,” which literally means to “suspend” your order, and anyone can redeem any pre-purchased “sospeso” item – no questions asked!
