Chicago "style" pizza doesn't deserve to be called pizza. It shares ingredients with pizza, but it sure as heck isn't real pizza. Calling it pizza is like calling meatloaf a burger.

"New York style" in Cali is probably the problem. Try it over here and decide. But like many have said, matter of preference. I can say that if in the mood for either, I enjoy both.

The biggest difference I've seen is the service associated and the dining experience. In Chicago, its a sit down, waiter driven meal. Here, you order from the grease ball behind the counter and he yells at you when its ready. Each one is special haha.

"New York style" is basically real Italian-style pizza, and there's a bunch of Italians in California, so no - I've never deemed this as a problem unless you're talking about the grease levels involved.

Ehh...we ate NY pizza in times square...it wasn't good. I'm sure there is a "place" that sells authentic NY Pizza but we didn't find it the 7 days we were there.

Let's be honest there are millions of pizza places. I've gone to places nearby here in NY that actually say NY Style pizza and when you finally get it its some s4!tpie that you can't believe you just paid for. That's just common pool party pizza, the cheap low-quality crap. Unfortunately many people get suckered that aren't from around here and buy this terrible pizza and can't believe how awful NY pizza is. The term is commonly used so you know its not a thick crusted pizza. A proper NY thin crusted pizza is not soggy with grease nor just falls right over. Chicago pizza is easier to make because it doesn't depend so much on the end result of the dough. Chicago pizza is a like a cake or lasagna. Its good and its Chicago's own creation but it certainly is not the true definition of pizza. You sir have been frauded into buying hacked up pizza. When you've eaten a proper NY pizza, trust me you'll know.

John's or Lombardi's - that's where you should have gone. Coal-fired pizza ovens, fast cook seals in flavors and crispy crust!

Completely agree.

If I'm thinking of getting pizza something like Pizza Hut will never cross my mind but if I want pizza hut regular pizza wont cross my mind. I feel like these are two different foods as well.

I love pizza, all kinds. I even like mediocre pizza. I like eating pizza sober, I like eating pizza drunk, I like pizza as a main meal, or as an appetizer.

When I travel I even like going to pizza places in different areas, eg: pizza in the midwest, pizza in cape cod (great greek pizza in hyannis), just pizza for the sake of eating pizza.

There is no "good" or "bad" pizza, just preference. Let's be candid here, when you are drunkl/hungover at 4:00 a.m. even leftover or frozen pizza is good.

In regards to the conversation, as other posters mentioned there really isn't a "New York Style pizza" as New York is huge. You have the 99 cent pizza like two brothers, but you also have 17 or 18 dollar gourmet pizza places like Travola (midtown west with an imported italian oven). You have Ray's and hundreds of imitations.

Chicago pizza is delicious as well, but preference wise I prefer a plain jane grandma slice with a single slice of mozzarella baked on.

There definitely has to be something with the water to make ny pizza taste like pizza made in ny. Good example try eating pizza from CT or NJ, close but different at the same time.

People, myself included like thin crusts or a thinner profile due to the ability to taste the sweetness/tangyness of sauces, meats, peppers, onions etc.

i'm a native new yorker and i think both are equally delicious in their own right. if i feel like really pigging out and eating something huge with a fork and knife, nothing beats chicago-style deep dish. for all the other times though, i'd prefer thin-crust ny style.

youre also forgetting that ny-area pizzerias have more than just a plain, thin-crust slice. pizzerias that serve ny-style pizza (at least in ny) have tons of other stuff that you just plain can't get elsewhere, like: calzones, rice balls, stuffed pizzas, specialty pizzas (e.g. white slices).

Most NY pizza is an average of 18" and yes thin, not the same bread as Chicago style or greek style pizza (which is the in between). meant to be folded to eat and has a cheese blend. Around Mass most places are greek pizza. Dominos is a joke with their "Large" pizza for the price.
I have seen 19" here locally from SAL's pizza(neapolitan style) and in NY if you look at some places in Brooklyn you can find 23" pies. for no more then $11.
In Manhattan it costs more :-(

Hit me up with some suggestions. The only place I know locally that claims to be NY style is Racanelli's, which I love.

My favorite local pizza joint is Dewey's but I love trying new places.

Deep dish wise, Black Thorn is hard to beat.

Here is San Diego, we have a place called Bronx Pizza. Its run by New York transplants, and they do authentic New York pizza, and after my first bite, I realized how good a proper thin crust pizza is.

The OP didn't get a good slice, he needs to find another place that sells New York style pizza and see if his opinion changes.

My favorite now is....Mine!

Thin crust, my sauce, toppings I choose on my pie! I cook it on my Primo grill using natural lump charcoal. That smoky wood flavor puts it over the top!

actually it is different. The reason people outside of ny can't get the same taste is because of ny water. No joke. I can't remember the place but theres a pizzaria in Cali owned by native new yorkers that actually get containers of NY water shipped to him. same goes with bagels.
