Trends: Detroit-Style Pizza

Detroit-Style Pizza
Step aside New York and Chicago, Detroit’s square pies with their focaccia-like crust and crunchy, caramelized cheese edges, are finally getting their due.
  • Dating back to 1946, this style is said to have originated at Buddy’s Rendezvous, where the owner adapted a Sicilian-style recipe.
  • Cooked in steel pans, they are topped with cubes of brick cheese that melt down the sides and caramelize.
  • Whether you go traditional and serve these pies in the original, family-style manner or elevate them with artisanal toppings, this trend is versatile and growing in popularity.
