Are you thick or thin? In regards to pizza crust that is??
I like both, but I think thick cheesy Chicago style pizza is my favorite. In Detroit, probably the best known place to get Chicago style pizza is Pizza Papalis. We used to go all the way down to Greektown to get it, but now there are smaller branches of this restaurant scattered around the metro area where you can get take out (and a few booths to eat in). They have a large menu with all kinds of sandwiches, ribs, and even an excellent thin crusted pizza. But the deep dish pizza is what they are famous for.
Now I seldom indulge in this pizza. All that cheese....not healthy.....but oh so good. And it is pricey - over $20 for a small pizza. But it is 2 inches thick and weighs about 3 pounds and one slice is more than enough for a serving. So sometimes it is a very special treat after a hard week.
My favorite is the seafood pizza. It is very rich, but I love it. And this time I ordered it with "lite" cheese in an attempt to be a bit more healthy. It is made with a fairly thin crust which has a nice crisp texture on the outside edge. Inside is a ton of cheese and the toppings. And then over the top is another crust and a delicious chunky tomato sauce. When you pull out a slice, you get a wonderful endless strings of cheese. Mmmmm, so satisfying...
Thick or thin? How about you?
