Pizza styles--definitions
« on: June 30, 2005, 02:59:22 PM »
The one thing about being a pizza freak( here in Chicago) that is frustrating is the definitions of the styles of pizza. Depending on where you go, a pizza that has 1 1/2" to 2" crust, sauce on top of that, and then cheese, can be called the following:deep dish, pan, or  thick crust.
A pizza with a thin bottom layer, sausage(or others), cheese, and then sauce on top, can be called: pan or deep dish.
A pizza with cheese and other toppings that are covered with a thin top of dough, and then sauce on top of that is known as stuffed, or deep dish. Some places, even "pie".
This is kiliing me. Can the government pass a law to once and for all define these different styles? Do you guys have it clear-cut (no pun intended) where you live, or is it as complicated as my hometown?
In my circles, Giordano's is a stuffed, Uno's is a deep dish, and the thick Pizza Hut variety is a pan. I just hate ordering one thing and then getting another.
