What’s the Difference Between Thick & Thin Crust Pizza?, Bronx, New York

Everyone has their preferences when it comes to pizza. While many are vocal about which toppings make the best pies, not many discuss the crust. Thickness can change your pizza-eating experience much more than you might think. To explain why thin and thick crusts are so different, Emilio’s of Morris Park in the Bronx, NY, shares what makes each style unique.

Thick Crust

The most blatant characteristic of this style is the depth of the dough. To increase its density, thick crust uses less water than thin. The pizza should be left in the oven for a bit longer to bake fully and evenly. 

Most thick-crust pizzas have a crispy outer crust and a soft, doughy center, giving each bite a distinctive texture. Their sturdiness allows for more toppings to be piled on without breaking, which is great for people who like to load up. You may want to have a fork and knife on hand, however, because thick slices aren’t as easy to pick up and eat.

Thin Crust

Although thin crust originates from Italy, New pizzaYork-style pizza is famous for it. The dough is rolled out to a much finer degree, until it becomes a flat sheet from end to end. Thin crust pies can be formed into a rectangle or circle, but round pizzas tend to be more popular in the United States. Thin crust pizzas cook much faster than their thick counterparts, so they’re easier for restaurants to pop in and out of the oven. However, the fragility of the crust can limit your topping options. Many pizza fans love the crispy, crunchy texture, and some claim it gives toppings more space to shine.
