Can't say for what they do in Sicily, but in America there exists so-called Grandma pizza, which is essentially a thinner Sicilian. IMO the essential character of a Sicilian is that it is baked in an oiled pan, not how thick it is.

My wife and i spent 2 weeks driving around Sicily , summer 2009.
There are lots and lots of pizza shops ,and lots of restaurants with WFO that sell 'regular" Italian style pizza.
I also saw quite a few bakery type shops that sold the square Sicilian style.

Traditionally, Sicilian pizza is thick & is baked in a WFO at bread temeprature without an active fire or coals.
