Here at Fairway Pizza Palm Harbor, we serve northern-style pizza every day, but as true pizza connoisseurs, we love to eat just about every type of pizza there is. So, today, we’re going to talk a little bit about the different types of pizza.
Fairway Pizza Palm Harbor: The Different Pizza Types
Northern Style Pizza
We’d be remiss if we didn’t begin this post with northern style pizza since that’s what we specialize in here at Fairway. Northern style pizza is made using a thicker, bread-like crust and the toppings are more plentiful and thickly sliced. If you prefer a really hearty meal when you eat pizza, then northern style pizza is definitely the right choice for you!
Chicago Style Pizza
There are actually a few different types of Chicago style pizza, but the most recognizable is the Chicago style deep dish. The crust of the Chicago style deep dish pizza is more like a pie crust in shape because the pizza itself is baked in a deep dish so that the crust surrounds the pizza and stands tall around the edge of the baking pan. This isn’t your typical “grab a slice and go” type of pizza, you’ll have to tackle this one with a knife and fork.
New York Style Pizza
New York-style pizza is a thin crust pizza that’s particularly great for convenience! The oversized NY pizza pie is sliced into exceptionally large slices that are traditionally folded in half and eaten by hand. The NY style thin crust is incredibly thin and pliable on the body of the pizza while the section of the crust that you hold is wider and slightly firmer to make it easier to eat your slice on the go.
Sicilian pizza is most often recognized as “traditional pizza”. It is baked in a deep dish and cut into thick slices that are often described as looking like “bricks”, yet each slice is light rather than heavy and overburdened with toppings. What makes Sicilian style pizza stand apart most, though, is the Sicilian style toppings. These toppings typically include onions, anchovies, tomatoes, herbs and strong cheese varieties (although some Sicilian style pizzas don’t include cheese at all). The Sicilian style pizza is most frequently served as a whole pie rather than sold by the slice.
A lesser-known type of pizza, the Greek pizza was created by Greek immigrants who came to the U.S. and wanted to add their own spin to the pizza that they were introduced to. Greek pizza has more sauce and less cheese than typical pizza varieties and the tomato sauce used on the crust has a rich oregano flavor making it tangier than traditional sauce. It’s also not uncommon to see Greek pizza topped with just cheese, but it may also be topped with Greek favorites like black olives, feta cheese, and red onion.
