US taking notice of Detroit-style pizza

According to this article on the Freep, the nation is finally giving Detroit-style pizza the respect it deserves., a website dedicated to Detroit-style pizza evangalism, explains what makes these pizzas special:
It’s Square! One of the first things pizza lovers notice is that Detroit-style pizza is square in shape. This is because in true Motor City fashion, authentic Detroit-style pizza is baked in square, blue steel automotive parts pans. Traditionally, deck ovens are used for baking.

It’s Upside-Down! Detroit-style pizza is often referred to as “upside-down pizza” or “red top pizza” because of the way its prepared:

1 – Start with a thick, chewy Sicilian crust
2 – Line the crust with a layer of pepperoni
3 – Mound plenty of cheese on top (traditionally brick and mozzarella) all the way to the edge
4 – Heap any extra toppings on the cheese
5 – Drizzle on a thick layer of signature red sauce that trickles
through the bubbling cheese

As someone who is not a fan of Chicago-style deep dish, I'm glad to see are local pizza starting to get the respect it deserves.
