And I remember very well back in the late 1970's and early 80's when Chicago pizza patrons were sending pizzas back to the kitchen from some of the new pizza places because the pizzas were "burnt". It was kind of a culinary shock to Chicagoans that anyone would actually eat a burnt pizza! One has to remember that it's the huge amount of variation/difference between pizzas made in different regions, even cities and towns across this great country (and now you can add "the world") that has driven pizza to the pinnacle of culinary enjoyment that it has achieved. All of the things that make those pizzas different are the very things that have driven and continue to drive the popularity of pizza. Long Live Pizza!

I've made Garvey's Pizza factory clone several times for friends. It's always a big hit. We have some ex-pats from Chicago that opened a pizza joint. They serve deep dish and thin crust.They get great reviews. The owners are very nice. They told me they they prefer the thin crust. Have not tried the deep dish. The thin crust is wonderful, but not quite a spicy as Garvey's.

I love square cut Chicago style pizza....I also love pie slice NY/NP pizza.
I do have my favorite... But I would never knock a pizza solely on how you slice it. That's amateuristic  🍕🍻

Sicilian pizzas are square-cut and nobody mocks them.

I was raised with thin square cut, will always lean that way, but bottom line, it's tomato/tomahto, all good to me!!!😊

Hi Tom,

Can you refresh my memory on the diamond-shaped variation of the party cut?
Things have never been more like today than they are right now.

I haven't see that for a long time now. Just something different to be sure.
