I couldn’t be prouder of the fact that demand for Authentic Detroit Style Pizza pans has skyrocketed over the past two years. Once used as parts trays by Detroit’s early automakers, there’s a lot of history behind the pans that are so critical to baking a truly Authentic Detroit Style Pizza. That’s why when our supplier stopped making the authentic pans we demand, we were forced into a supply shortage. In fact, our large pans have sold out and our small pans are almost gone.
Not to worry – we’re working hard to find a new supplier for the perfect, truly Authentic, Detroit Style Pizza pan. We hope to have a supply agreement sorted out within the next few weeks, but in the meantime rest assured that we will not compromise pan quality. If anything, our new Authentic Detroit Style Pizza pans will be better than ever because they’ll meet our specifications, which demand that the pans share the same traits as the antique pans that inspired them, including:
- excellent hold for Detroit Style Pizza that bakes to the same color, texture, and flavor offered by the original pans
- thicker pans for enhanced quality and durability
- no rusting, pitting, or flaking
- consistent supply and availability
Our aim is to offer a Detroit Style Pizza pan that performs as well as the original, and we’re working hand-in-hand with Authentic Detroit Style Pizza Makers across the nation to actively test different variations until we get it right. The Detroit Style Pizza pan is steeped in rich tradition, and has evolved since it first came off the line in 1946.
At first I was dismayed to learn about supply issues, but now I see it as an opportunity to write the next chapter in the Detroit Style Pizza pan’s storied history. The first Detroit Style Pizza pan was selected by a single person. The new Detroit Style Pizza pan is being carefully selected through a collaborative effort between the world’s best Detroit Style Pizza Makers. It is being extensively tested to ensure premium quality, durability, and, of course, bake performance. It will be THE pan that makes pizza Detroit Style.
