I was wanting to see what cities/areas cut their round pizzas into square shapes.

The other day I was in the grocery store and saw a pizza called Milwaukee Style. Of course, I had to try such an obscure style. I was surprised, however, when I saw that it was the same as what I know as Dayton or Columbus style.

This led to further research, and I discovered that thin crust, round pizza cut into squares with edge to edge cheese and toppings is often known as Tavern or Midwestern style pizza.

However, Cincinnati, where I live, while cutting pizza into squares, has a normal thickness crust with a visible crust ring around it.

So, now I want to ask if anyone has seen such pizza in their area, and if so, how common is it? Also, can you include any special details - such as the provel cheese of St. Louis or the small chopped up toppings of Dayton?

Thanks

Ohhhh ... A Cassano's pizza with green and black olives, extra onions, and sausage. Beer on the side. Heaven.

In NY, it's called Sicilian pizza. The whole pie is a square and the slices are cut into squares. The crust is different from a regular pie. A classic Sicilian pizza does not have any toppings.

Milwaukee style is basically the same as Chicago tavern-style. Crisp, cracker-thin crust with lots of cornmeal and no rolled edge, cheese and ingredients all the way out to the edge, with a tangy & herbal sauce, baked as a round pizza and then cut in a criss-cross pattern, also known as the "party cut." Despite Chicago's reputation for its deep-dish, locals eat way more tavern-style than deep dish.

When I was in high school, one local pizza place cut their round pizza into squares (with triangles at the edges), it was called Sir Pizza. They also diced the pepperoni into 1/4" cubes.

That's what it is called up here in Mass too. I don't see it everywhere but I would say at least fifty percent of the pizza places I go have it.

Not quite square pizza, but I ate a lot of Harris pizza growing up in the Quad Cities. Quad Cities style has malt in the crust, is cut into strips with shears, and the toppings are under the crust. There's a QC pizza place here in Anderson SC but I haven't tried it yet.

Campisi's in Dallas makes a rectangular pizza cut into rectangles. It's the classic Dallas pizza.
