Craig,

You have taken the Detroit style of pizza to a level of sophistication that I have not seen before. And, believe me, I have looked at a lot of Detroit style pizzas as I have tried to help Norma replicate that style. I was somewhat expecting to see a nice glass of red wine next to one of your slices, befitting of what you have done with that style. It complements your Neapolitan style very nicely.

Thank you for the great complement Peter. There was a glass of a nice young Tempranillo just outside of the shot.  ;D

I should note that on the first pie there is a layer of Hormel pepperoni between layers of mozz and Vermont pepperoni and jalapenos on top.

HEB sharp white cheddar block (from the big cheese section - not the deli) on the edge of all three pies.

Craig,

Are you putting the fig preserves on post bake?  Warming them, thinning with something or just as is?

sorry if this is in this thread, I skimmed through but did not see it.

Thanks,
Deb

Deb, yes, I add it post bake. We have a pretty good locally made one I can get easily so I've been buying it lately. I warm it a little and thin it with just a tiny bit of water so it spreads easily. Sometimes I add a touch of lemon juice too.

The last pie is just butter and cinnamon sugar. It was incredible.

Craig,

You Detroit style pizzas look mouth watering delicious!  ;D  Do you mind if I steal the cinnamon and sugar one from you?  Could you tell me when you applied the butter and cinnamon sugar and in what amounts?

It's all yours my friend. I put on about (6) 1/2Tbs slices of butter and then put on quite a bit of cinnamon sugar. I didn't measure it, but you really couldn't see any dough through it.

You will have to use water to clean your pan when you are done. I threw mine in the oven after to be sure I got it good and dry.

Craig,

Thanks for giving me the tip about having to use water to clean the pan when I am done and putting it into the oven to dry.  I didn't think about that.

I may have missed it but did Craig mention a thickness factor for his SD dough?

Thanks, Bob
