Detroit-style pizzas are so en vogue. These rectangular wonders have a focaccia-like thick crust that’s topped with hunks of cheese and runners of tomato sauce. The toppings spread all the way to the edge, resulting in a darkly caramelized and crunchy crust.
Traditional Detroit-style pizzas use a very regionally specific cheese as their topping (that’s very hard to get outside of Detroit). We mimic those flavors with a blend of mozzarella, muenster, and jack. To highlight the cheese blend and pepperoni, we use a medium to robust intensity extra virgin olive oil in the crust recipe and for cooking the pizza. A more robust olive oil offers bold flavor, balanced bitterness, and a prominent peppery finish, perfect for pizza.
