Detroit-Style Pizza is a unique pizza variety that originated in Detroit, Michigan in the 1940s. With a thick, crispy crust that's light and airy on the inside and caramelized and crunchy on the outside,

and toppings that are added in reverse order to traditional pizzas, it's no wonder this pizza has gained popularity in recent years.

While it may seem intimidating to make at home, with a few tips and tricks, you can easily recreate this delicious pizza in your own kitchen. So, let's get started!


3 cups bread flour, 1 cup warm water, 1 tsp active dry yeast, 1 tsp salt, 1 tsp sugar, 1/4 cup olive oil, 8 oz shredded mozzarella cheese, 1 cup tomato sauce


In a large mixing bowl, combine the bread flour, yeast, salt, and sugar. Add the warm water and olive oil to the dry ingredients and mix until a dough forms.

Knead the dough for 5-7 minutes until it becomes smooth and elastic. Grease a rectangular baking pan with olive oil and press the dough into the pan, making sure it reaches the edges.

Cover the pan with plastic wrap and let the dough rise for 1-2 hours. Preheat the oven to 450°F. Once the dough has risen, sprinkle the shredded mozzarella cheese evenly over the dough.

Spread the tomato sauce over the cheese, making sure to leave a small border around the edges for the crust. Add any desired toppings over the sauce.

Bake the pizza in the oven for 20-25 minutes, or until the crust is golden brown and crispy. Let the pizza cool for a few minutes before slicing and serving.
