Have You Heard Of “Minnesota Style” Pizza?
You've heard of Chicago Style Pizza and New York Style Pizza but have you ever heard of Minnesota Style Pizza?
Chicago Style Pizza is traditionally a deep-dish crust pie at least an inch deep which allows room for extra sauce and toppings.
A New York Style Pizza characteristically has a large hand-tossed thin crust that is thick and crisp only along its edge.
It is soft, thin, and pliable enough beneath its toppings to be folded in half to eat.
So just what is Minnesota Style Pizza?
It has nothing to do with Hotdish or Lutifisk.
According to Homemadepizzaschool.com Minnesota Style Pizza is thin-crust pizza, not cracker thin, with a cooked sweet and savory sauce.
Minnesota pizza is always covered to the very edge in all the classic pizza toppings, and then the cheese is added last to hold all of those tasty toppings in place.
When a Minnesota pizza comes out of the oven, it is always cut into squares, not slices.
