What is Detroit-style pizza? It’s a rectangular pizza with a thick crust. It’s usually topped with cheese, tomato sauce and toppings.
Big D Pizza is a new ghost kitchen serving pizza out of Alfonso’s Italian Restaurant, one of the oldest Italian restaurants in Dallas. Owner Peter Colombo is a transplant from Detroit, he’s been making Detroit-style pizza for years.
“I’ve been working on doing Detroit-style pizza for about two years, and we’ve had it on the menu, but I didn’t make a big deal about it because I didn’t want to turn Alfonso’s into a pizzeria,” Colombo told CultureMap. “But with it starting to become better known, and with pizza becoming more popular since the onset of the virus, I decided to just go ahead and do a full menu.”
