Detroit style pizza

Has anyone successfully recreated the crust from a Detroit Style pizza, like Jet's?  It's a deep dish, rectangular, Sicilian type, but the crust is fried and crispy. Cheese all the way to the edge causes a crispy burnt edge all the way around, without the usual lip of dough around the pie.  Every bite is crispy, yet light and airy on top. I've found some recipes for Buddy's, another Detroit pizza that is similar, but not sure if any of them are any good.  Here's a vid showing what Jet's is like    
The crispy corners are so popular they actually sell an 8 corner pizza. I'm pretty sure it's baked in blue steel pans, which I have. 
It's not a science, it's an art. And it's flawed.
