Detroit Style Cheese Pizza is a cheesy and delicious dish that is sure to WOW everyone.
We are starting a new week of Bake-a-thon today and this week, it is going to be all about Pizza. I think I have had enough sweet pumpkin treats last week, so for a change it’s going to be everyone’s favorite Pizza this week. So for the first day I made this absolutely cheesy and delicious Detroit Style Cheese Pizza.
Who doesn’t like pizza?? My picky 5 year old also likes it too and that is something to say because she says she doesn’t like cheese (???). I don’t even know where she came from sometimes. My son and I, on the other hand, eat cheese like there is no tomorrow 🙂 So when she says, she liked this Detroit style cheese pizza — it is a BIG deal.I have quite a few pizza recipes on the blog already. But I don’t think there are too many pizza recipes, ever. I had this Detroit style pizza pinned from Joy the Baker site a while back. This pizza is slightly different from both New York style and Chicago style pizzas. The crust is thick and chewy, topped with a sweet tomato sauce and lots of ooey-gooey cheese.Traditionally Detroit brick cheese and grated mozzarella are used on this pizza. I didn’t have the brick cheese, so I used pepper jack cheese instead. You can also use monterey jack or muenster cheeses as substitute.
After baking, the cheese melts and forms a delicious golden brown crust on top. Chewy crust, delicious tomato sauce and cheese — what else would you want from a pizza. Go ahwad — bake this and enjoy!! Serve with a side salad — so you don’t feel guilty for eating that much cheese. I served a simple massaged kale & white bean salad (recipe courtesy Minimalist Baker).
