Chicago-Style Pizza Is More Than Deep-Dish: Steve Dolinsky

There are at least 10 different Chicago-style pizzas. Chicago is definitely a pizza town, but most people only think of the stuffed and deep-dish styles. But it’s really all about what we call tavern-style pizza. This is the party cut, the square cut, the thin and crispy style of pizza that people are surprised to learn was actually the first and original Chicago-style pizza. It’s been our style since the 1930s before deep-pan pizza was created in 1943 and long before the stuffed pizza craze started in 1974.
