Detroit style pizza is a unique style that has gained international popularity in the last decade.
It is a unique take on the Sicilian style that is popular in New York City. Since it has gained international recognition it is labelled ‘Detroit Style’ , but if you grew up in Detroit, you would know it simply as ‘pizza’
Detroit style pizza is cooked in a pan, and is rectangular in shape. Historically, the pans used in the huge automotive factories were used in the restaurants. These heavy blue steel pans help give the Detroit style its unique characteristics. The base is deep and fluffy and the edges are chewy and crispy. Cheese is put right to the edges, so the cheese on the outside gets caramelised and crispy, while the cheese in the centre stays soft and gooey. A thick, rich and aromatic tomato sauce is typically put on top of the cheese.
Detroit style pizza is a luxury dish. It’s a serious pizza, capable of satisfying multiple people. Its crispy grilled cheese flavour, perfectly compliments the deep pan base which is fluffy on the inside yet crispy on the outside. So many textures give Detroit style pizza its unique taste.
