Named "World's Best Pizza" at the 2012 International Pizza Expo
Detroit Style Pizza Co. was founded in 2012 by World Champion Pizza Maker Shawn Randazzo who has made it his life's mission to make sure the entire nation knows about Detroit Style Pizza.
Instantly recognizable by its square shape and thick crust, Detroit Style Pizza got its start in the mid 1940's thanks to soldiers returning home after WWII. Rather than using traditional round pans, in true Motor City fashion, the originators baked their pizza in square, blue steel automotive parts pans that allowed the outer edges of cheese to caramelize, forming a delicious golden brown cheese barrier around the perimeter of the pie.
For decades Detroit Style Pizza has remained relatively unknown outside the region, however Shawn has helped it gain worldwide fame after winning the 2012 World Pizza Maker of the Year Award.
April 4, 2017 Detroit Style Pizza Co. will be serving award winning pizza slices this summer at Electric Forest 2017 June 22nd -July 3rd.
