Award winning and acclaimed Pizza Chef Shawn Randazzo – International Pizza Expos’ 2012 World Champion Pizza maker – has spent the last decade traveling the globe,  promoting the style of pizza know as “Detroit Style Pizza”. While serving as the unofficial Ambassador of “Detroit Style Pizza”, Shawn has offered his consultation services and expertise to pizzerias and pizza chefs the world over.

In 2019, Shawn decided to concentrate more of his efforts on expanding the “Detroit Style” pizza in Metro Detroit. After concluding that there are very few authentic Italian pizzerias in Detroit, especially ones that offer genuine “Detroit Style” pizza, and that Metro Detroit is over run with “chain” pizzerias, who offer little variety and subpar quality pizza, Shawn, along with his partner (and cousin), have created a new style of pizzeria in Metro-Detroit, naming it Palazzo dI Pizza (Italian for “The Pizza Palace”).

Palazzo di Pizza combines an authentic “Detroit Style” pizza, with old world Italian pizza making techniques, and traditional Italian & Mediterranean cuisine. Palazzo di Pizza uses only the finest and freshest ingredients on their pizzas, sandwiches and salads, and their pizzas are baked in old fashioned, tried-and-true deck ovens, which creates its signature perfectly golden, crispy crust, decadent melted cheese, and topped with our signature delicious red sauce  – the hallmarks of a genuine “Detroit Style” pizza.

Palazzo di Pizza – Come on in, for a little slice of Italy. Mangiamo!
