What is Chicago style pizza?

I've been a Chicagoan all my life, and although I do enjoy both deep dish and stuffed pizza, it's a misnomer to identify Chicago to these types of pizza. On the contrary, in every Chicago neighborhood there is a pizza place on every corner which offers very, very good thin crust pizza, which came long before deep dish or stuffed specialties. Compared to other pizza across the country, the secret is the sausage (we are the hogbutcher to the world don't forget). Chicago thin crust pizza is also much different than New York style pizza, so if you have a chance, try both!
