  • Summary

    One of our newest obsessions is Detroit-style pizza, a dish born at Buddy's Rendezvous (later to become Buddy's Pizza) in that city more than 70 years ago. Known for its thick crust with crackly-crisp sides and bottom, it also layers classic pizza toppings in reverse order: first optional pepperoni, then cheese (brick cheese, to be totally traditional), then sauce. It’s baked in a special dark anodized pan to achieve perfectly crispy caramelized cheese around the edge; a harmonious balance to the soft, chewy crust, and sauce and gooey cheese on top. Our thanks to Serious Eats for the inspiration for this recipe.
