Detroit-style pizza, popular in these parts in the 70s and 80s, is making a welcome return to San Diego with Angry Pete’s, founded by Michigan-native Pete Harbison in 2018. Located inside Desi’s Bar & Grill in Point Loma, Angry Pete’s slings squares Wednesday-Sunday from 5 pm until midnight. Detroit pizza has an 80% hydration dough, so unlike many deep-dish styles, the crust is light and fluffy rather than chewy. Also unlike other pizzas, ingredients are added in reverse order: toppings go directly on the crust, followed by loads of cheese (the gold standard is Wisconsin brick cheese), spread all the way to the edges, then plenty of red sauce. Baked in a rectangular, eight-by-ten, heavy metal pan, the crust and cheese along the edges crisps up into delicious, caramelized perfection, while the cheese in the middle melts into a barrier so that the saucy top doesn’t make the crust soggy. There are no rules about toppings here, so stay traditional with Ezzo SS Pepperoni Pizza or go wild with Flaming Hot Cheeto Street Corn Pizza, whole or by the slice. If you want to make DIY Detroit-style at home, you can buy a full kit of ingredients, an authentic eight-by-ten Lloyd pan, and even a six-pound slab of Wisconsin brick cheese.
