Making a Detroit-Style Pizza With Dough Balls [VIDEO]

October 10 2018 by Luke Siedow

Detroit-Style PizzaAs robust and original as the city of its origin, Detroit-style pizza remains among the most popular types of pizza — and not just in Michigan.

Baked in a well-oiled rectangular pan reminiscent of the industrial spare parts tray rumored to have been used to make the very first Detroit-style pie, the chewy, medium-well-done crust boasts a nearly fried texture on the bottom and edges. Plus, the signature reverse order of toppings-cheese-sauce will surely make your customers flip!



With All-Purpose Pan Dough Balls from Alive & Kickin’ Pizza Crust, it’s never been easier to add in-demand Detroit-style pizza to your menu. Just pull the proofed dough ball into the corners of an oiled rectangular pan, then add thick-cut pepperoni, cubed brick cheese, and thick diagonal stripes of rich, fully-prepared pizza sauce.

Bake until edges are crispy and the cheese is golden brown for a Motor City-inspired pie that will really rev up your customers — and your sales.
