What is ‘Detroit style’ pizza?

Taglio is putting a Queen City spin on the Motor City staple.

When it comes to Cincinnati pizza shops, Taglio in Columbia-Tusculum is definitely the new popular kid in school. Open for only a few years now, they’ve already expanded and developed a die-hard fan base. While all of their pizza is great, we think one specific style is worthy of some serious hype … their Detroit style pizza has turned a ton of heads.

But what is Detroit style?  If you don’t know already, Detroit style pizza is defined by a couple key traits: rectangular, deep dish and flanked with a caramelized cheesy crust, made famous by legendary shops like Buddy’s Rendezvous.

But is there more to it than that?  And how did this Motor City Staple make its way to Porkopolis? We stopped by the Taglio kitchen to find out.
