Detroit-style pizza is a rectangular pizza with a thick crust that is crispy and chewy. It is traditionally topped with tomato sauce and Wisconsin brick cheese that goes all the way to the edges. In 2021, after about one year of development and 500 iterations, Pizza Hut released four versions of its Detroit-style pizza.
Brick cheese was originally produced in Wisconsin beginning in 1877.. The cheese-making process was derived from white American Cheddar that is cultured at a slightly higher temperature, which results in a marginally higher fat content and a slightly altered protein structure. The resultant “brick cheese” has a slightly softer texture.
On June 25 and 27, 2019, it was reported that Pizza Hut was bringing back their logo and the red roof design that was used from 1976 until 1999.
