What makes a Detroit-style pizza?
Detroit-style pizza is known for its legendary light and airy crust. For best results, use yeast and bread flour (all-purpose flour works as a great substitute). Detroit-style pizza is different from other regional pizza styles
because of the pan used. This pizza recipe uses a special Detroit-style pizza pan
, but if you don’t have one on hand, try using a 13x9 pan
What kind of cheese is used on Detroit-style pizza?
Detroit-style pizza typically uses either brick or mozzarella cheese. These cheeses work best for achieving that stringy, caramelized cheese topping that Detroit-style pizza is known for.
Why is my pizza soggy?
Your pizza may be soggy because you added too much cheese or too many toppings. Avoid this pizza mistake
by following the recipe’s directions closely. It can be hard to resist piling on the toppings, but the end result will be worth it.
