Types of Pizza in the United States

Welcome to the United States, where the pizza landscape is as diverse as the nation itself. From the bustling streets of New York to the laid-back vibes of California, each region has its own unique take on this beloved Italian dish. In this gastronomic exploration, we’ll delve into the various pizza styles across the US, highlighting the distinct characteristics that make each one a culinary masterpiece. And here’s the exciting part – our high-speed ovens are here to ensure a perfect bake for every style, bringing the authentic flavors of each region to your table.

New York Style Pizza

Originating in the Big Apple, New York-style pizza is renowned for its thin, foldable slices. The crust is characteristically crisp on the outside yet soft and chewy on the inside. The pizza is topped with a simple yet flavorful tomato sauce, high-quality mozzarella cheese, and often adorned with toppings like pepperoni or mushrooms.

Most common toppings: 

  • Classic Margherita: Fresh tomato sauce, mozzarella cheese, fresh basil, and a drizzle of olive oil.
  • Pepperoni: Thin slices of spicy pepperoni arranged over tomato sauce and melted mozzarella.
  • Supreme: A combination of pepperoni, sausage, bell peppers, onions, and olives.

Chicago Deep Dish

A hearty and indulgent creation, Chicago deep-dish pizza is characterized by its thick, buttery crust that lines a deep pan. Layers of mozzarella cheese, meat, and chunky tomato sauce are assembled in a reverse order, with the sauce often generously ladled on top. The result is a pizza with a rich, satisfying combination of flavors and textures.

Most common toppings: 

  • Sausage and Mushroom: Sweet Italian sausage combined with earthy mushrooms, layered over mozzarella and tomato sauce.
  • Spinach and Artichoke: A rich blend of creamy spinach and marinated artichoke hearts atop layers of cheese and sauce.

Neapolitan Pizza

Hailing from Naples, Italy, Neapolitan pizza is characterized by its thin, soft, and chewy crust. Toppings are kept minimal, typically featuring fresh mozzarella, crushed San Marzano tomatoes, basil, and a drizzle of olive oil. The emphasis is on simplicity and the use of high-quality, fresh ingredients.

Most common toppings: 

  • Margherita: Tomato sauce, fresh mozzarella, basil leaves, and a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil.
  • Marinara: Simple and traditional, featuring tomato sauce, garlic, oregano, and a sprinkle of sea salt.
  • Prosciutto and Arugula: Thin slices of prosciutto paired with fresh arugula added after baking.

Detroit Style Pizza

Detroit-style pizza is easily recognizable by its square shape and distinctive thick, airy crust. The crust achieves a delightful combination of crispy edges and a soft interior. Toppings often include pepperoni and are complemented by a unique Detroit-style sauce that is ladled on top after baking.

Most common toppings: 

  • Classic Pepperoni: Pepperoni covering the entire surface, crisping up along the edges.
  • Motor City Classic: A combination of brick cheese, tomato sauce, and pepperoni, with the unique sauce-on-top style.

California Style Pizza

California-style pizza is a celebration of fresh, local ingredients and creative flavor combinations. The crust is typically thin and crisp, serving as a canvas for a variety of unconventional toppings such as arugula, goat cheese, sun-dried tomatoes, and even exotic fruits. The focus is on freshness and innovation.

Most common toppings: 

  • BBQ Chicken: Grilled chicken, red onions, cilantro, and a tangy barbecue sauce.
  • Pear and Gorgonzola: Sliced pears, crumbled Gorgonzola cheese, caramelized onions, and a balsamic glaze.
  • Mediterranean Veggie: Artichoke hearts, Kalamata olives, sun-dried tomatoes, feta cheese, and fresh oregano.

Remember, these are just a few examples, and the beauty of pizza lies in its versatility. Feel free to get creative and experiment with your favorite toppings on each style, and our high-speed ovens will ensure they’re perfectly cooked for an exceptional dining experience!
