About this deal

Most important: If you have struggled to get your bottom crust to cook completely before your toppings burn, a parbake is the solution. Another essential piece — unfortunately — is to use pre-shredded cheese, the starches in which prevent the cheese from clumping and melting too quickly. If you do have food stick to the pan, soak the pan in hot soapy water and rub with a non-abrasive type scrubber. I wanted slightly more dough, so I increased the dough by 1/8th and I find that my dough doesn’t shrink in the oven if I only grease the bottom and not the sides of the pan.

The focaccia pan allows even cooking in ovens where the cooking floor heats up immediately, offering greater protection for the bottom of the dough.It is traditionally topped to the edges with mozzarella or Wisconsin brick cheese, which caramelizes against the high-sided heavyweight rectangular pan. In 2020, four Detroit-area restaurants, Buddy's, Supino Pizzeria, Loui's Pizza, and Cloverleaf Pizza, were listed in the 101 Best Pizzas in America by The Daily Meal. If you do have a Baking Steel or pizza stone, place it on a rack in the middle or lower third of the oven while it preheats. On one side are the local Detroit pizzerias and restaurants devoted to their normcore, family-restaurant roots with toppings directly on the crust, a layer of processed brick cheese, and sauce on top.

I first became aware of it back in 2008, when former Serious Eats editor and current bar pie specialist Adam Kuban included it in his exhaustive pizza style guide, but it wasn't until the following year, during my annual Michigan hunting trip, that I tasted it for the first time, at a Buddy's in Detroit. If you've ever been to Pequod's or Burt's Place in Chicago, or, better yet, had a pizza from Windy City Pie in Seattle (incidentally, the best Chicago-style pan pizza I've ever had anywhere, including in Chicago), then you're familiar with the concept of a crispy, blackened cheese crust—the shelf of crisp, lacy cheese that surrounds the edge of the pizza. If you have spent any time on Instagram or TikTok, you may have come across some striking images of Detroit-style pizza.it was stretched perfectly to all the edges but when I did the 8 min par bake it shrunk down significantly. The base is very similar to focaccia, light and airy in texture but sturdy enough to sustain a blanket of cheese, sauce, pickled jalapeños, and cup-and-char pepperoni. You'll know it's done when the cheese around the edges is sizzling and black and the top is very lightly browned. When I visited Dave Lichterman, the man behind Windy City Pie, in his Seattle kitchen a few months ago, he showed me how he makes his cheese crust. If you are using pickled jalapeños, scatter them evenly over the pizza, keeping in mind heat tolerance — they make the pizza very spicy.
