Pizza Trippin’

Detroit deliciousness at Founded Pizza 

Founded Pizza and Coffee fans already know about the thin crust New York style pizza Fahri and his crew sling to high praise from the locals. Makes sense — New York is where Fahri first learned to make pizza after immigrating from Turkey in 2007 with a little cash and the phone number of a family friend in his pocket.

And from New York, he’ll be taking us this fall to Detroit. Specifically a Detroit style square pizza will be added to the menu. Also known as the “red top pizza,” “upside-down pizza,” and the “Motor City Secret” (until recently the style was known only in Detroit).

What’s it like? Take it away Wikipedia:

The crust of a Detroit-style pizza is occasionally twice-baked and it is usually prepared in a well-oiled pan to a chewy medium-well-done state that gives the bottom and edges of the crust a fried or crunchy texture. The difference between Detroit-style pizza, Chicago and New York styles is the crust, which is extra thick and very crispy on the bottom.

Another fun fact: the original Detroit pizza was square because it was first made in industrial parts trays from factories. Just a little history to chew on while you’re deciding which of the 20+ varieties you can choose for this new style.
