For years my go-to pizza crust was thin, baked on a stone. Last Friday I made a Detroit style crust.

😋

I need an intervention!

2. As you know, it DOES look a tad more caloric.

6. That's a focaccia bread with toppings

...which I think is actually more 'authentically Italian' than thin crust pizza.

7. Traditional Detroit (pictured) is like focaccia. For my crust I used Trader Joe's dough.

8. Looks good to me!

I prefer a thicker crust, but I don't like deep dish pizza - it's a big grease bomb, IMO.

There was a take out place near us several years ago, now sadly gone, that had a crust option that they called "extra-thick thin crust." It was just right.

9. How do you get your crust thin?

Mine is okay but always thicker than I'd like. Sometimes it's been resting in the fridge for an entire day, so it can't be that the gluten needs time to relax.

11. You can roll it out but I prefer to work it with my hands gently stretching as I rotate it.

13. You gotta spin it.

That's why they do that. This is how we did at every pizza joint I ever worked at:

14. I never mastered spinning, I hold it on my knuckles and stretch and turn.

15. that works too

and it's what I did mostly because I'm a klutz that kept putting my hand though the dough - but some of my co-worker were damn Meadowlark Lemons with that shit. You be watching them and start whistling Sweet Georgia Brown without even knowing it.

I always picture pizza crusts all over my floor, but I guess I'd better get more adventurous.

18. please dont nuke the left overs of that gorgeous pie to re heat it....

...ALWAYS lightly oil a skillet and heat left over pizza on the stove top. The crust will be even more crispy than when you first cooked it and yummy!!... and you can even create that charred look like the stone oven baked pizzas. I learned that tip from TED on the original Queer Eye. Thats the only way our family will ever eat left over pizza. Now i want some left over skillet heated pizza.

19. A little tip from Village Pizza of Roslyn Washington (where Northern Exposure was filmed):

...pour honey on your pizza bones for dessert! Village Pizza serves a jar of honey at each table. Wow what a treat. When I visited friends in Denmark, I got the entire pizzeria hooked on the honey bones!
