Regional Pizza Styles

Posted on Posted in general, Human Geography

Anyone who’s been an avid pizza eater in the US knows there is a great deal of variation across the country on pizza. Most people know the difference between Chicago Deep Dish and New York style, but could you pick a New Haven style pie out of a lineup? Neither can I. Luckily for us pizza aficionados, the good people over at Slice Serious Eats have seen fit to detail all the regional styles for us! There’s even a pretty cool set of pizza maps for those who might live in the areas they’ve visited.

  1. I currently live in Old Forge Pizza territory… It’s definitely a style unto its own. Growing up, there have been many different pizza styles in my life… I lived in Germany for ten years, where, if you ordered “pepperoni” pizza, you would get a pizza with hot peppers. I recall one place, “Garibaldi” if I recall correctly, where their “special” pizza came complete with a fried egg. Different… Neat to see some of these tabulated on a map!
