Detroit Style Pizza Pan

Recommended Posts

A fee weeks ago the March King Arthur catalogue arrived in the the mail. It featured their Detroit Style Pizza recipe and an appropriate pan.

Always game for a new pizza experience I bought the pan and a couple other goodies. It's a professional grade anodized aluminum pan 14" x 10" with 2" walls that slant out.

I followed the recipe only substituting Buttekase cheese instead of the cheddar cheese it called for.

This was a good pizza. I really like this pan. Very non stick. I do think with a few more tries I can improve this style of pizza. I like the crispy cheese edge.

Note: if you are interested in this pan order direct from Lloyd Pans. It'll save you a few dollars. Plus they have lids for them and a bunch of other pizza pans in various sizes.

That looks great!  Thanks for sharing.  I didn't even realize there was a Detroit style of pizza....  I agree on the crispy cheese edge - that's the best part!

 

This pan did a really good job of crispy cheese edge without burning the bottom. Next attempt is going to be a full on crispy cheese edge but probably in a Sicilian style.

Hey, your pizza looks terrific. And I say that with more than an acceptable level of experience eating Buddy's, Loui's, Cloverleaf, etc. here in Detroit. The carmelization is great on yours.

 

Most frequently, Brick cheese is used here in Detroit along with some Mozz. I have the pan as well, and it does make a big difference.

 

If you haven't already, Kenji Lopez-Alt's recipe and research is really good.  Here's a link:

That was a good read. Until this post I didn't realize there was a Detroit style pizza.   it's another cook I need to add to my growing to-make list.

 

@ckreef nice post and a great cook.
