What is Northern Style Pizza?
Most pizza lovers are familiar with “New York Style” pizza or “Chicago Style” pizza but we often have people ask us – what is “Northern Style” pizza?
Well, the fact is that there are MANY more types of pizza than “New York” or “Chicago” style! Each of these terms is used to describe the region a pizza style originated from or is popular in or a characteristic of the pizza (think “deep dish”). Most often the difference in these pizzas lies in the crust.
But what is “Northern Style” pizza?
Northern Style pizza is a type of pizza that originates from Northern Italy.
Many non-Italians falsely believe that the food throughout Italy is similar regardless of where you go. This is simply not true! Both Northern and Southern Italy have unique flavor profiles and traditions that distinguish their foods from each other.
When it comes to pizza, it has its roots in Southern Italy, but that isn’t to say that you won’t find pizza in the North. The difference between the two lies primarily in the crust. In Southern Italy, the traditional pizza style has a thinner crust – sometimes so thin that it looks like a cracker! In Northern Italy, the pizza crust is more breadlike in texture. Southern pizzas are also much more “dainty” with thinly sliced toppings. Northern pizzas with thicker crusts are more likely to have thicker toppings and more of them!
