July 4th, 2016 is a day to be remember in Itaewon-dong.
When Motor City Pizza opened its doors, we had never heard of the thick-crusted delight that is Detroit-style pizza.
A distant cousin to the Chicago-style, Detroit-style pizza is baked in a rectangular shape in blue steel pans from the industrial era of Detroit’s automobile factories. The resulting pizza is a wonderful slab of focaccia-like crust with a spotlight on cheese and toppings rather than a heavy tomato sauce base.
Motor City takes extra pride and care in their creations, fermenting and refrigerating the dough for a 24-hour period to enhance taste and maintain a consistent texture throughout the pie.
They now offer lunch as well as a takeaway, as tables have been filled by pizza-lovers every weekend. It’s 17,000-25,000W for a pizza with eight rectangular slices each; you can happily feed two people or order two and take some home.
