Whether you’re a fan of New York Style pizza or Chicago style, most can agree that pizza is better than no pizza. In this month’s blog post we will compare the two styles to determine how they’re similar, different, and what makes each of them so uniquely great.

New York Style

Those who prefer New York style pizza are fond of its portability and classic simplicity. New York style is defined as having a thin and particularly large crust, so large in fact that locals are known to fold the pizza in half lengthways in order to get a full bite.

The experts have perfected the art of producing hand-tossed pies that are both crispy and pliable enough to fold. A classic New York style pizza is only topped with sauce and mozzarella cheese.

Chicago Style

Lovers of Chicago style pizza enjoy the comfort of sitting down with a fork and knife to enjoy their deep dish pies. A traditional deep dish Chicago style pizza will be an inch or two tall and packed with chunky tomato sauce, cheese and other toppings. Since every slice is usually loaded to the brim with delicious toppings, most can only enjoy a slice, maybe two.

Final Thoughts

Both New York and Chicago style pizza have earned their way to fame and into many happy hearts and bellies. When you’re craving hot, fresh, and delicious pizza with a bit of New York style flare, head to Johnny’s Bar & Grill!
