Detroit pizza is made in a 9” x 13” high wall baking pan with slanted sides. The dough is made, then formed in the greased pan, and given a second proof to rise. The dough does not extend up the sides of the pan. Sauce and toppings are placed on the dough and then heavily dusted with cheese along the perimeter. When the dough rises, cheese flows down the interior edges of the pan and caramelizes on the outside of the crust.
Makes 53 cups of sauce.
