Even though none of these styles correctly describe my favorite style of pizza, I voted for New Haven because it deserves to be taken seriously. Anyone who is bad-mouthing it or claiming it isn't a real style is very uninformed. New-Haven style is very much a specific and unique style and anyone who knows pizza knows that. I feel bad insulting St. Louis because it might be similiarly misunderstood but in my experience pizza outside the northeast and Chicago just isn't too special. And I'm not gunna claim there is a "Boston style" because there definitely isn't but we can still make a good pie- I am working at a pizza place for the summer.

New Haven ALLLLLLLLLLL the way baby.

Nothing like Frank Pepe's creation anywhere...well pretty close in NYC I guess.

Road Food would agree as well.

Oh and John: Pepe's IS a big dog.

Oh, this is a rough one. I'm not a huge fan of thick crust, but I do like Chicago thin crust. However, I adore New Haven white clam pizza, it is hard to get anyone here in Chicago to eat it with me though at the one New Haven place I know of. I'll probably go with Chicago style thin crust out of home-town pride, but it wins by a squeak.

Oh, and I like nyc style too. I've eaten at Lombardi's and Grimaldi's in nyc and both were very tasty experiences.

I guess it is suffice to say that I just like pizza.

However, I have to admit ignorance to St. Louis style pizza, I've never heard of it.

can someone explain what St. Louis style is?

I've never had New Haven, so I've got to vote for NY. I have a problem with both Chicago style pizza and hot dogs - too much damn stuff (even a plain chicago has too much dough) on them - distracts from the main event!

LOVE thin crust - paper thin, can see through it.

Not sure what St. Louis style is. I really like all the others and can't really pick a favorite, it really depends on my mood.

What does bother me is thin crust pizza that's cut into squares. That's one thing that this east coast transplant just can't handle.
