Vegetarian and Vegan pizza. Vegan Meat. Detroit Pizza coming soon to Bristol!
Detroit pizza is a rectangular pan-pizza with a light, pillowy base about 1″ deep. The cheese is pushed up to the edge of the pan where it caramelises and forms a jagged crispy cheese edge called a “Frico”. It was invented in the 1940’s at a pizzeria in Detroit called Buddy’s Rendezvous who used drip-trays from the local automotive industry to bake the pizzas.
WHERE’S THE MEAT? There isn’t any. All of our pizzas are meat-free. We use some of the absolute best meat substitutes from the UK as well as making some in-house.
WHAT’S VEGAN BRICK CHEESE? Traditionally Detroit Style pizza uses a type of cheese made in Wisconsin called Brick cheese which is a mild flavoured cheese that melts very well and crisps up beautifully around the edge of the pizza. We make our own vegan version in-house using a cashew nut base and it’s far superior to most vegan cheeses you can buy.
