Poll: What's Your Favorite Style of Pizza?

What's Your Favorite Style of Pizza?

Having spent some serious time in New York, Chicago, and San Francisco, I've had my share of love affairs with all kinds of pizza, from the giant, thin pies at Grimaldi's in Brooklyn to the sausage-stuffed deep dish at Giordano's to the organic, local ingredient-laden, egg-topped variety at Alice Waters's Chez Panisse. But if I had to choose, my favorite type of pie would be the one made in the ethereal Neapolitan style. It has a crisp, ever-so-slightly charred exterior and a chewy but light interior. In San Francisco, the best of this kind is found at A16. What's your choice pizza?

Also, on my Brooklyn to-try list: Lucali and Di Fara's. I am scared to brave the line at Di Fara's though!

di fara's in brooklyn is the best pizza in the world...but i still love ny style and neapolitan style pizza equally. i hate chicago style pizza and i have no clue what california pizza is & ive lived here all my life.

i've never had better pizza than what i've eaten in naples. leave naples and the pizza changes dramatically. roman style pizza, for example, is much thinner and crisper and the cheese is put on more evenly. i'm actually going to naples this weekend pretty much so that i can eat pizza like this:

I guess Neapolitan because I like think crust the best. Isn't NYC style pizza also thin crust? And what exactly is California pizza style? I lived in California for two years and my only conclusion is that CA pizza is gross. Also, I agree with those who said Italian pizza is the best - I had the most amazing pizza in Rome, exactly the way Anonymous described it. Fresh buffalo mozzarella. Thin crust, light sauce, basil leaf. I think it also had grape tomatoes on it. Oh man, it was phenomenal.

i agree with lauren. the majority of the time i like neopolitan or nyc. but at least once i year, i just have to hit up giordanos in chicago. nothing like eating a days worth of calories in one "slice" yum.

All pizza is delicious ESPECIALLY if it's made in brick or wood burning oven (accept for crap like Dominoes, pizza hut, papa johns, etc).

NYC pizza all the way. I detest California fu-fu pizza. While I don't really care for Chicago-style either, I'll take it over California any day.

Because of this post I had NY style pizza for dinner :D yum. I love any kind of pizza basically (don't care for meat toppings) but anything else, thick, thin, crispy, saucy...I'm good.

I love Neapolitan-style pizza, but I'm also a fan of the Sicilian-style pizza that's found all around Boston ... delicious!

I'm a New Yorker and I love my NY pizza and suffered for 4 years of eating Domino's and Papa John's when I was in college in DC. But, I also studied abroad and went to Italy and I totally loved the pizza that I got there and ate pretty much every day. Yumm...I would love to go back and get me some of that!

I don't really eat pizza, but the only type I like is the Neapolitan kind...very thin crust, not a ton of cheese, lots of tomato sauce, and not a ton of toppings.

is there any other type of pizza besides New York pizza? I have not heard of such a blasphemous thing :)

Neapolitan! I want my crust thin and crispy like a cracker, slightly singed on the outer crust. Restaurants that offer Neapolitan style also tend to use higher quality ingredients (like fresh mozzarella and home made sauce) so the pizzas are less greasy. All that grease on the top of the pizza, it's from cheap cheeses that separate and canned sauce.

Yum, I will have to try to look it up or remember what it's called. It's on either the Travel Channel or the Food Network and they go through a brief history of pizza in each city and show the most noted restaurants from each city. Just to warn you, it will really make you want pizza!
