Detroit Style Pizza is crafted in a distinctive style, featuring a crispy-on-the-outside, light-and-airy-on-the-inside pepperoni-lined crust and brick and mozzarella cheeses, which caramelize on the crust when deck-oven baked in well-seasoned blue steel square pans. After baking, signature red sauce is ladled on, lending the pizza nicknames such as “upside down pizza” and “red top pizza.” In addition to its flagship recipe, Detroit Style Pizza Co. also sells Old Forge Style Thin Crust Pizza, Traditional Pan Style Round Pizza, pastas, subs, wings, salads, sides, desserts and more.
