Detroit Style Pizza that Will Rev Your Engine

The best Detroit style pizza has a fluffy center, crispy edges, and lots of cheese. It’s a square or rectangular slab of heaven. And, guess what? If you can’t hop a flight to Detroit to enjoy their delicious, regional pizza, you’re in luck! There are several great options for frozen Detroit style pizza at your local grocery store.

In my opinion, this is one of the best styles of pizza in general and it lends itself beautifully to being frozen. Whether you’re a meat freak or a cheese lover, there’s a frozen Detroit style pizza for you that you can buy without leaving your zip code. That being said, you should go to Detroit.

Best Meat

Motor City Pizza Co. Pepperoni Detroit-Style Deep Dish Pizza

Motor City makes incredible frozen Detroit style pizzas, which makes sense because that’s all they do. If you’re a meat lover, grab their pepperoni pizza the next time you’re at the store. It is the best meat-lovers option on the market. Yes, there are meatier pizzas, but this single-meat pizza is a dream. The pepperoni is spicy and crispy. There’s tons of it. The pepperoni grease melds beautifully with the cheese and sauce. I love this pizza.

Best Cheese

DiGiorno Four Cheese Frozen Pizza on a Crispy Pan Crust

Few companies make a plain cheese frozen Detroit style pizza and I don’t know why. There’s a market for it. I certainly want to buy it! DiGiorno is one of the only options for plain cheese, and I don’t mind that it’s the only one because it’s so dang good. I could live off this pizza if it wouldn’t kill me. It’s so pillowy and cheesy and soft. It’s like school lunch pizza, but way better.

Best of the Best

Motor City Pizza Co. Supreme Detroit-Style Deep Dish Pizza

Not only is this the best frozen Detroit style pizza from the freezer section, this is our number one ranked frozen pizza in general! It is truly unbelievable. Motor City’s Detroit Style Supreme Deep Dish Pizza is everything you could ever want in a pizza. It’s cheesy and there’s plenty of meat. The vegetables look like real onions and peppers that were chopped by human hands and placed on the pizza, rather than weird little flavorless chunks. This is a true, perfect 10/10.

  • This is my new favorite pizza. Even over take out. I’m normally not a thick crust person but it’s perfect. Motor City Madness Supreme.

  • As a gluten intolerant, I’m a big fan of Feel Good Foods margherita pizza. They don’t call it Detroit-style on the package, but that’s what it is, and it’s delicious. I had no idea a gluten-free pizza could be that fluffy before I tried it. It was a welcome find when I was beginning to think I just had to accept dense and chewy gluten-free crusts for the rest of my life!
