About this Recipe

Detroit Pizza is similar in style to a Sicilian or Roman style pizza. Some call it the perfect rectangle - complete with melty cheese, a thick crust, and crispy pepperoni. Invented in the 1940s, this iconic dish is traditionally made using old steel drip pans. What separates this pizza from most is the cheesy crust - a fundamental part which is made easier than ever in your Brava. Just place half of the mozzarella cheese around the edges of the pizza, and then dress and top your pizza as you would. Press the green button and let Brava do the rest.
