Detroit style

Detroit-style pizza has an airy Sicilian-style crust and is baked in a rectangular pan. The dough is traditionally gently uniformly poked or indented and then topped with brick cheese and finished with two strips of tomato sauce as a salut to the two rivers of Detroit. An extra layer of cheese is sprinkled around the edge that creates a crispy, golden-brown border when the pizza is baked.
