Regional pizza styles have popped up across the country. Perhaps, 2014 was the year of the Detroit-style pizza with all of the media attention given to this sauce-topped rectangular pizza.
Huffington Post has published its subjective list of its best pizza styles. Which pizza styles made its list? Take a look at its Top 10:
French bread pizza
Our Pizza Today Man on the Street Scott Wiener loves to explore different pizza styles. In his column dedicated to regional pizza styles, he writes, “Slice, a Web site that bills itself as “America’s Favorite Pizza Weblog,” lists 30 different regional pizza variations. The usual suspects are there: New York Style; Chicago Deep Dish; Neapolitan; Old Forge and, of course, Detroit style. Each of these represents a mutation that occurred in a particular locality because of ingredient availability, economics and cultural influence. There was never a reason for them to exist in other parts of the country unless a New Yorker decided to bring his pizza to South Carolina or a Chicagoan decided to introduce deep dish to the West Coast. The sudden drive toward offering regional variations offers the customer a culinary vacation without having to buy a plane ticket. Until recently, one had to travel to New Haven, Connecticut, just to get a New Haven-style pizza. Now you can pick up a pie at Chicago’s Piece Pizza or Metro Pizza in Las Vegas.”
What pizza styles do you serve? What does it take to maintain its authenticity?
