It gets a real crispy bottom crust and you put cheese all the way to the edge. I think that's the main reasons.

I do not par bake.

What I think of as Detroit - Michigan really - cuisine is all those wonderful Greek family restaurants. Inexpensive, large servings and a lot of them are really fine. Huge menus.

I grew up there but never knew it was a style until I left. Little Caesars is a crappy chain version of Detroit style. Jet's Pizza would be a better chain example of it. I think Buddy's (a local chain) is the originator.

That looks great, btw. Did you do it in the Blackstone oven or regular oven?

Thanks.

Oven. This pan is to big for B.S. or it would have been in the B.S. I didn't want to run through so many pellets in the cold temps heating it for an hour before baking to get it nice and hot. I might try in the Humphrey's sometime.

Even though it's not on outdoor cooker I still wanted to share since it can be done outside, usually.

Detroit style pizza started out being cooked in rectangular steel pans designed to hold small parts for manufacturing. They had to be heavily oiled to prevent the crust from sticking, resulting in a crispy crust.
Wisconsin brick cheese is used in place of mozzarella, if you are a stickler.

Detroit style is really gaining some cultish momentum! Pretty similar to Sicilian style that I started getting into around high school age. Yeah, the whole cheese to the edge thing and the crispy crunchy crust is totally key.

Nice job, O.P.

I thought brick was used on the sides for the crust and mozz in the inner part. I ended up using mozz only. I wanted to taste the mozz by itself since I never try this superior Ny blend, from restaurant depot.

The pdf file I got for the recipe is really good.
