Detroit Pizza Gets a New York Twist From These NYC Slice Masters | Food Skills

  • تم نشره في 2018/07/30
  • New Yorkers are territorial when it comes to their slices. So when two Staten Island pizza legends decide to open up a Detroit-style pie shop in the heart of Manhattan, you know they better have a good reason. Enter: Lions and Tigers and Squares-a Detroit-style pizza parlor “with a New York twist.” For Francis Garcia and Sal Basille, the masterminds behind NYC’s Artichoke Basille’s Pizza, the obsession with Detroit-style pie came from a trip to the Motor City in 2013, where they got a crash-course in the town’s unique approach to cheese, sauce, and dough. Now, on the corner of 8th Avenue and West 23rd Street in Chelsea, the cousins are churning out square pizzas with the best of them, covering their dough with heaps of fresh cheddar cheese and baking it all in a pan. The result is something crisp, cheesy, and decidedly untraditional, as far as purists from both cities are concerned. "Detroit is a pizza city. I mean, come on. People forget that," Garcia says. "It was a combination of loving the way that it tastes, loving the way that it looks, and loving the way that it came about."

    Anyone know where I can find that sort of pan they use? I really want to replicate that size and shape of it.

    I lived in Detroit 2 years and I never saw a pizza that looked as good as what they're making here. New Yorkers are the kings of pizza. They perfected the original, they perfected the Detroit, they could probably perfect the deep dish but I'm sure they won't.

    You really can't beat Detroit style pizza. The square shape is unique. The amount of pepperoni they put on top is PHENOMENAL. How the cheese seeps into the crust during the baking process is HEAVENLY. It's a grand meal. I think it's the BEST!

    Buddy's in Detroit uses Wisconsin Brick cheese, and the pepperoni goes *under* the cheese to prevent charring. Love to see this style spreading far and wide!

    Screw these people. I live on the diagonal corner, went in there and ordered one plain pizza - $5. They charged me $15 on my credit card. I told them they made a mistake, they "credited" it back without ever taking my credit card. Guess what - no credit. You SOBs want your illicit $10. Fine. Go to hell.
