Pizza terminology

eimac | May 21, 2004 05:12 PM

I've been checking this board before my trip to Chicago next month and I have questions about what to expect from the different pizza types that I keep reading about.

Is there difference between deep dish and pan pizza?

Is a stuffed pizza anything like a calzone? I don't like calzones - too much "goop"

When you guys talk about a "thin crust pizza" ---how thin? Are you talking about pizza like you get in New Jersey or should I expect something like a cracker?

I don't think a pizza crust should crunch.

I don't want to look like a rube when I order.
