7 Pizza Styles From Across The US, Explained

New York

01

Because the earliest Italian immigrants arrived in New York City in large numbers, New York-style pizza bears a strong resemblance to traditional pies made in Italy, particularly in Naples.

02

If New York-style pizza is meant to be eaten on the go, Chicago-style pizza is meant to be eaten indoors, while the winds off Lake Michigan howl outside.

Detroit

03

Little Caesars was famous throughout the country for its cheap, cheap pizza for decades. Somewhere along the way, the restaurant's unique rectangular pizza pie became known as Detroit-style, giving the restaurant's name a bit more respect. 

Buffalo

04

If you're going to Buffalo, New York to see Niagara Falls, admire Gilded Age architecture, or get body slammed through a folding table from the top of a bus before a Bills game, you're probably dying to try the city's famous chicken wings.

California

05

We probably wouldn't recognize California as having a distinct pizza style if it weren't for California Pizza Kitchen (CPK). 

Colorado

06

Given that Colorado was one of the first states to legalize recreational marijuana, it should come as no surprise that the state has its own unique style of pizza.

St. Louis

07

While it is well-known for its thin cracker-like crust, St. Louis-style pizza is distinguished by the use of Provel, a regional processed cheese.
