"Chicago Style Pizza" as classified by people not from Chicago is usually pan pizza- chiefly because that's how pan pizza gets marketed in ad campaigns whenever national chain pizzerias do a pan pizza product run- in spite of the fact that Chicago has a native thin-crust pizza that is more likely to be eaten by people who actually live in Chicago.
But isn't it marketed that way because the deep dish style was created in Chicago? I don't see how the native preferred pizza style has anything to do with it.

Chicago Style Thin Crust is more accurately characterized as "Chicago Style Pizza" since pound for pound, more Chicagoans in Chicago eat that type of pizza over the pan pizza, which has come to be termed "Chicago Style Pizza" by people not from Chicago- and not because it *is* Chicago style pizza, but because they watch a lot of TV and TV says it is. It's one of those falsehoods that has been accepted as fact by a larger group of people than those who actually know the truth.
Is Chicago Style Thin Crust different than every other thin crust style?There was just no way this discussion wasn't going to be had once BG brought it up.And I think he knew this.

What makes "Chicago Style" thin crust pizza unique ? The reason that most people think that deep dish is Chicago style pizza is that it's different than what most people in most places eat and is more available in Chicago than it is in other places.Just because more people eat thin crust pizza in Chicago doesn't really make thin crust "Chicago Style" does it ?

Most people don't know what the "sentencing guidelines" are for "parole violation" - so, asking this question in an open and abstract way will almost invariably result in a "YES! MORE!" answer- which is precisely why there are people serving decades in prisons for simple possession of drugs, etc, etc. I choose my original(now an unoriginal form of pig-latin(I would have prefered Fikonspråket but I'm the only one smart enough to get that reference)due to the overzealous censorship issues of the MAN) forum name based on an ankle bracelet some parolees are forced to wear. So you know.....I know shit.

Yes. It was created by Ike Sewell (or possibly his chef Rudy Malnati) in 1943 at Pizzeria Uno in Chicago. However, they become a huge franchise and marketed the shit out of it.

It can be argued that Chicago has a thin-crust tradition that it can call its own. Supposedly the crust is crispier than a typical NY pizza. Has a crunch to it.

No!The original Italian style is very different from what we are used to after over 100 years of parallel evolution. The closest to that you can get to the original Napoli-style pizza in the US is at Lombardi's in NY. That was basically the first pizzeria established in the US and the pizza hasn't changed much. Compare, Naples pizza: Posted ImageLombardi's in NYC:Posted Imagemodern NY Pizza (Joe's on Bleeker):Posted ImageChicago-style thin crust: Posted ImageOne of the main things we have gotten away form is the blobs of mozzarella, in favor of shredded mozzarella which covers the whole dough.

I thought I preferred NY style pizza and it turns out Chicago thin crust is the best type of pizza.

In order to maintain some semblance of scientific reality to these polls, we need a time frame that they must stay up, or a minimum votes required.Since any changes to the poll questions by the OP will wipe clean the current polls.I suggest having each poll be up for a minimum of 4 hours, and or 20 people vote on it.that should give us plenty of coverage to maintain a +/- rate of around 42%

I was just going to leave them up overnight figuring that would give the "regulars" a chance to vote whether they are daytime or nighttime posters. But I do appreciate that people are probably really itching to get to Shake's poop poll.

Yes, deep dish pizza was created in Chicago, but so was Chicago style thin crust...

Yes. It's thinner and crispier. It's more likely to be rolled in flour rather than tossed with oil which has a pretty significant impact on how the finished product comes out. Also, the sausage is pretty different.

You speculated, but you speculated wrong. I have worn an ankle bracelet, though, but never one of those and that wasn't what my screen name was based on.
