While UK-based Gill Meller (@gill.meller) didn’t grow up eating Detroit-style pizza at home, he’s no stranger to deep-dish pizza. Before he was an award-winning chef, food writer and author of “Outside: Cooking Outdoors – Recipes for the Wild,” he was making pizza in his kitchen using a rectangular tray. With their deep, thick crusts and crispy, cheesy edges, he was actually cooking up pies that didn’t stray too far from the classic American style.

So when asked to create a distinctly UK version of a Detroit-style pizza, Gill leaned into the nostalgia and comfort of a decidedly British breakfast tradition and snack: beans on toast. Usually, baked Heinz beans are warmed up from the can and poured on a “decent supermarket loaf […]. Something brown and wholemeal is preferable to give the dish a baseline earthiness and character, but that is as exotic as the bread should get.”
