This Sicilian-style pizza is made in a New York-style East Coast pan, and it is BIG. Beneath the behemoth lies the “greatest dough on Earth,” which, at 72 hours old, has had a long time to ferment and rise, creating a light, airy crust with a delicious, complex flavor. And since this is The Boss we’re talking about, it’s topped with meat, meat and more meat — Italian salami, pepperoni, Portuguese pork sausage and bacon, to be exact.960 1280
Its biggest seller, the Detroiter, looks simple but is a thing of beauty, from the cast-iron pans that come straight from the auto factory floor to the double dose of pepperoni. Another favorite, the top-shelf Cadillac pie, is a luxurious mix of sweet, salty and tangy that’s not traditionally “Detroit,” with prosciutto imported straight from Italy, Gorgonzola, fig jam, fresh Parmesan and balsamic glaze.960 1280
