‘Milwaukee-Style’ Pizza Isn’t A Thing So Please Stop
Just because you're a big city, that doesn't mean you can just slap your name on top of a pizza and call it your city's style pizza.
For example, Outsider's Pizza, which presumably is available at Target on East State Street, is selling a frozen pie titled "Milwaukee-style."
What the heck is that all about? I'm not pretending to be a pizza elitist here because I am, and I can tell you without a shadow of a doubt there is no such thing as "Milwaukee style."
I have a feeling The Takeout feels the same way. They rang up Steve Dolinksy out of Chicago for his two cents. Dolinsky said "There’s no such thing,"
A July news story by Milwaukee Magazine says:
"Our city's version is modest but distinctive, defined by a cracker-thin crust and square-cut pieces."
Does that sound familiar? Well, it should. Tavern-style pizza described:
"The crust is thin, and firm enough to have a noticeable crunch...this pizza is cut into squares."
Long story short, Milwaukee-style pizza is essentially Chicago tavern pizza.
At the end of the day, pizza is still pizza, so I'm sure it's still edible. I'm trying this so-called Milwaukee-style pizza.
Are there any other cities, besides Chicago and New York, that have a certain style of pizza that we should know about? Let us know!
