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.
LOL, I personally never had Chicago-style pizza. It look mouth-watering, but it's huge!!!

That's kind the beauty of it, one or two slices is a large satisfying meal. A small pizza is a good three days worth of food for one person. Also I like that it's perfectly acceptable to eat it with a knife and fork.

St. Louis style Pizza uses provel cheese (a processed mix of cheddar, swiss, and provolone; and IMO, doesn't taste very special. I always got the feeling that St. Louis needed to create something to compete with Chicago. I personally think St. Louis style pizza is a joke...

I have never heard of New Haven Style Pizza; but I would love to try it. Looks very good! It also looks like a real style of pizza, not that joke of a "style" from St. Louis.

Default new haven

if you ever had sallys pizza, you will be hard pressed (or lying) if you say its not the best.(new haven) it is by far worth the wait. never had st. louis, chicago is kind of dull, and new york is also awesome.

Wooster street in New Haven produces the best pizza in the world. Frank Sinatra used to go to New Haven just to get a 'za at Sally's.

I think I've had something resembling St. Louis style here in Kansas City. I've yet to find a truly good Pizza in KC and more or less I gave up looking.

Chicago style is excellent though and has more flavor than the NY style. Both are excellent in their own right.

Greek Style has not been mentioned. That is also an excellent pie if it you hit the right restaurant. Connecticut has plenty of excellent Greek Pizza shops.

I'm goin' back up to Chicago to visit my kids next weekend and my Yuppie daughters say there's a New Haven style pizza place near where they live and that it's very good. I don't know if it's authentic but I'm gonna give it a shot, the photos of New Haven pizzas I've seen make it look very good.

I'll let them treat the old man, eh?

Momma Righetta's on Torrance Ave. in Lansing produces some excellent pizza that is on par with the some of the best places in the Northeast! They have both thin and traditional Chicago style there.
