Detroit Style Deep Dish Pizza

What is Detroit-Style pizza? There are other delicious regional styles of pizza, including Chicago and New York, but Detroiters know this style. They grow up with it. It’s the hometown pizza. The distinctive Detroit-style deep dish pizza originated in the 1940’s with the use of a blue steel pan (similar to those used in industrial parts trays in the Motor City), which is coated with olive oil. It is a square or rectangular pizza that has a thick deep-dish crisp crust, a crispy-crunchy edge and chewy inside texture, and cheese from edge to edge.

    Isn’t this pretty much the exact same thing as their regular deep dish? It doesn’t look any different in the picture. I’ve had actual “Detroit style” pizza before, and it’s good eats.

    This stuff? I think I’ll pass. We have a Detroit expat who owns a local mom and pop Detroit style pizzeria shop in our area called Union Brothers, so when I get a craving for this style of pizza, I take my business there.

  2. J.J. says:

    It’s not amazing, but a definite step up from their $5 round pies. Jets and others do Detroit-style better, but for $6 it’s not a bad option.

  3. Manavee says:

    Is this different than their regular deep dish? Because it looks the same.

    • Bubbsy says:

      This one is like Jet’s 8-corner deep dish pizza…. it is split in half in the pan so that every piece is a “corner” with that crispy greasy cheesy edge on 2 sides.
      And while it doesn’t come close to what makes Jet’s version so dynomite, for $6 it’s really quite nice.

    • Jon says:

      It looks like they just renamed the regular deep dish to Detroit-Style.

      Great price, though.

  4. Richard says:

    I will be the third person here to say what makes this so much different than the deep deep dish pizza they already sell??

  5. BoJangles says:

    That’s funny.. cuz I have a “coupon” for a free 2-liter with purchase of a Deep dish pizza for $8. So.. technically either the pizza is full price and the pop is free or they discount the pizza and still charge for the 2-liter.

  6. Andre says:

    This is exactly the same as their regular deep dish. The marketing team has fancied up the name a little while paying tribut to its origins.

    A few years back, before the deep dish became a hot n ready item, it was one big square pizza cut into nine pieces. (the center piece had no crust) My local store would also sell it for the regular hot n ready price of $5 if you called ahead and ordered a large 1-topping deep dish style.

  7. Alex says:

    No way is this any different than their regular deep dish. That said, $6 is a decent price for this so I’ll be picking this up.

  8. Jjj says:

    It’s the same. They are just featuring the “Detroit style” more prevalent in the advertising. At $6 it’s a steal. I love the caramelized cheesey edges and corners.

  9. Justin ST says:

    If they let you add toppings and it’s not just hot and ready, this could be great.

  10. Rusty Shackleford says:

    First post and someone is already whining about mom and pop shops like with every pizza post.. The Little Caesar’s deep dish is delicious, probably my favorite chain pizza. Detroit style or whatever aside, knocking it down a couple of bucks is a steal.

    • Raiders757 says:

      Yea, that was me, and I was just pointing out that I am fortunate to have a local shop in my area that serves this style of pizza, not whining, so sod off. If you don’t like my posts, don’t read them. I wasn’t saying it was horrible, or that it was a bad deal, just that I’ll support the local shop when I’m the mood for that style pizza. I don’t eat thick crust pizza very often, as I prefer New York style or a thin and crispy Chicago bar style.

      …and like others, as well as myself, mentioned, it didn’t look any different from what they already serve. Seems it’s not.

    • rodney says:

      Sadly, this probably really is the best deep dish pizza from a major chain now. Pizza Hut used to have the best ever, and it’s atrocious now, unless you count Papa Murphy’s pan pizza, which you take home and bake yourself, this really is the best chain pan pizza. If you don’t mind baking it yourself though, Papa Murphy’s is amazing.

      • MP says:

        Papa Murphy’s was easily the best chain pizza I’ve ever had. Their take-home pizzas were LOADED with cheese & toppings; like they were 2 pounds+. And they were cheap at like $7-$9 for a large! The Mexican pizza was divine, too. Two cheeses, black olives, salsa, beef, green onions, tomatoes & refried beans! It’s too bad there’s so many great pizzerias around here that they had to close & leave the area.

        • Joe says:

          That “Mexican” pizza really does sound horrible :/ Sounds like a Midwestern soccer mom’s “authentic Mexican” dish. And this is coming from a guy who even loves Taco Bell.

      • Joe says:

        I like the lack of grease at Papa Murphy’s, but I gotta say the toppings always seem a bit cheap – the peperoni reminds me of Subway’s meat and the sausage is pretty bland. Their crust and cheese are pretty good though.

  11. Dank meme bro says:

    This is the best thing little cesear’s has, so its nice to see it nearly the $5 it used to be and probably will pickup one.

  12. Jonathan Wayne says:

    Detroit pizza is when you are all out of options, some of the worst pizza out there. People that like Jet’s and Little Caesars always amaze me but then I remember these are the same people that think coney dogs are something to brag about as the best food in the city. Chain wise as good as Dominos and Pizza Hut have gotten, there is no reason to get pizza from those places.

    • rodney says:

      I know people seem to like Domino’s now, but my god, it’s just awful, I can’t even force myself to eat it on special. Pizza Hut isn’t very good anymore, but their thin pepperoni is ok if it’s on special. Little Caesar deep dish is the only half way decent thing they have, not terrible for the price. Really, I stick with Papa Murphy’s for the most part, even with having to bake it myself, it’s just really good. Never heard of Jets, guess we don’t have it here.

    • Sascha says:

      I know pizza, like everything else, is a to each their own type of food, but still, Shirley, you can’t be serious!
      There is nothing better than a Detroit deep dish. I’ll take a Jet’s pizza over all but maybe 1 or 2 Chicago places and over all but maybe 4 or 5 New York places any day. And that’s Jet’s, simple chain pizza. We’re not even talking Buddy’s, which might just be the best pizza on the planet. That crispy, buttery cheesy crust, the cheese, oh the cheese. Sorry, changing pants.
      And what’s wrong with a good Coney anyway? Beats putting a damn vegetable garden on my hot dog.

      • rodney says:

        It’s been 20 years, but I spent a summer in Detroit and had Buddy’s several times, it was quite good.

      • Jonathan Wayne says:

        NYC hotdogs and pizza are the best, hands down, not even a contest and I have been all over the place. Chicago hotdogs are good and different but not nearly as good as they are hyped up to be, neither is their pizza. I personally only think NYC pizza made in NYC should exist and that’s it. I’ve had NYC pizza made by guys from NYC in other states and it doesn’t taste the same, it’s the water, it has to be. I’ll eat Jet’s if I have to, it’s not inedible, but it is only if someone buys it or asks me to go in on it with them. Like I said, chainwise , Dominos and Pizza Hut have really upped their game and I would get them before Little Caesar’s or Jet’s. Admittedly I have never tried Buddy’s so I can’t say whether they are good or bad but I will hopefully change that soon. I also tried the famous Blaze Pizza recently and that was terrible, never again, Pie Five is better if ever so slightly.

        • MP says:

          Blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah.

        • Sascha says:

          Here’s the problem with NYC pizza. 90% of it is nearly inedible cardboard. Yes, there are some places in New York that have to go on the short list of best pizza in the world, but if you walk aimlessly around Manhattan or Brooklyn and hit up the first pizza joint you find, chances are the pies will be atrocious.

          Meanwhile, I live in Mid-Michigan, and I can go to Jet’s and get a phenomenal Detroit deep dish, or I can go to Little Caesar’s, Hungry Howies or Happy’s and get very good deep dish pizzas. Basically, I can go anywhere that offers the deep dish in the area and come away satisfied. And I have a local place that’s at least in the same neighborhood as Buddy’s, probably the gold standard. Try that in NYC.

          And New York hot dogs are not all that, either. The quality of the Chicago Hot Dog, once you remove all that crap from it, is far superior.

        • rodney says:

          “Like I said, chainwise , Dominos and Pizza Hut have really upped their game”

          Boy howdy, we must have tastes that are polar opposite because I literally can’t even eat Dominos anymore. I got one from there a few months ago, and the taste was actually offensive, I had to throw it out. Pizza Hut isn’t quite that bad, but compared to what they used to be, it’s pretty bad, especially their so called pan pizza, just atrocious (but not as bad as Dominos, but almost nothing is that bad). I also love Chicago Dogs. I have yet to try Blaze, but I’ve heard good things about it, so I’ll give it a try soon and report back.

          • Joe says:

            Domino’s I’ll agree with you on, but I do think Pizza Hut did a pretty good job on their recent menu revamp. The sauce drizzles are pretty yucky, but the crust toppers and specifically their Peruvian peppers are awesome.

            I’m an odd one out though – I don’t like delivery pizza fresh out of the box as much as I do the day after, and I like to nuke it versus putting it in the oven; when everything melts together, the crust sogs a bit and I eat it with a knife and fork (with extra sauce of course).

    • Toonin says:

      “People that like Jet’s and Little Caesars always amaze me but then I remember these are the same people that think coney dogs are something to brag about as the best food in the city.”
      Now there’s a well-informed guy who thinks very clearly that should share his opinions more often. Maybe you are also amazed by people who like food like corn dogs and lasagna because they’re the same kind of people who buy silver cars?

    • BBB says:

      Obviously you have no clue about good pizza since you like Domino’s and Pizza Hut with their frozen crust. I will put a good “Detroit Style” pizza (Buddy’s) against any round new york or chicago pizza any day. Wayyyyyyyyyyyyy more flavor.

  13. Mattitude says:

    Little Caesar’s Pizza, hot garbage you have to pay for!

  14. Ghey Meme Bro says:

    Little Caesars = yuck!

  15. CulinaryZerg says:

    Little Caesar’s deep dish has always been Detroit Style…it’s where they are headquartered. So yeah, it’s the same thing marketed differently.

    That said, I’ve always liked their deep dish. Crispy cheese corners and a fried greasy crust…definitely a guilty pleasure.

  16. Robert says:

    Yes it is the same as their regular deep dish. They are not claiming it is a new offering. This is a price promotion. They are discounting the existing product for a limited period of time. Nothing new here just a better deal on an existing item.

    You’re welcome.

  17. J.J. says:

    The current pizza hasn’t changed. As another poster mentioned, the square pizza used to be one square cut into 9. Later I remember it being cut into 8 diagonally so that each slice had an edge. The switch to the 2 smaller pies came a couple years back. I think the crust may have become a bit deeper at that point as well.

  18. Robert says:

    I challenge anyone to be able to tell this deep dish apart from Jet’s. They are IDENTICAL. Seriously, the two most similar fast food items I have ever tasted in my entire life. Those who think otherwise have either 1) never made the comparison themselves or 2) live next to a particularly terrible LC (quite possible). So the fact that LC is practically half the price makes them the no brainer here.

    • Jonathan Wayne says:

      While they are both terrible I don’t think it is fair to say they are the same, Jet’s is much better than Little Caesar’s, not great, but still better. Leave a slice of Little Caesar’s in the fridge overnight, you will never be able to get the cheese back to the consistency of anything resembling cheese, it is kind of scary, Jet’s will reheat just fine.

      • rodney says:

        “Leave a slice of Little Caesar’s in the fridge overnight, you will never be able to get the cheese back to the consistency of anything resembling cheese”

        You can say that again! In fact, I would say if you don’t eat it within 15 to 20 minutes after purchase, it turns into something other than cheese, really almost inedible. That’s with their regular pizza, I haven’t had that experience with their deep dish, maybe the crunchy crust distracts from it, or different sauce or something. But yeah, I don’t even touch their regular pizza anymore if it’s just me, because even at 5 dollars, it’s a waste of money because the leftovers are so bad.

    • Bubbsy says:

      Never had any trouble telling this pizza apart from Jet’s. LC’s has a fluffier and drier crust like a fat dry sponge, and doesn’t get cheesed all the way to the edge like the picture – – almost 1/3 of every slice is just that tasteless bread schmeared with sour tomato sauce with no cheese/toppings. You get what you pay for at LC’s.
      Jet’s is consistently much better (if this 8 corner deep style is what you’re after) – better tasting cheese & toppings, they don’t skimp, you get a much better fried/chewy-crisp cheese edge to the crust and it’s loaded from edge to edge.

  19. J.J. says:

    Jet’s typically has more sauce and often more cheese. The LC crust seems a bit doughier so it depends if you like more dough or not. Jet’s also offers the flavored crust options (recommend Turbo).
