Thrillist's take on Midwestern Pizza

http://www.thrillist.com/eat/nation/best-pizza-in-the-midwest-best-chicago-pizza-best-detroit-pizza
Examples include several Chicago variations, Detroit, St. Louis, and the Quad Cities. Alas no Milwaukee tavern style pizza's are mentioned but all in all a better article than most.

    I was thinking about what to have for dinner tonight, and now it just might be pizza.

    Decent catalog!  I'm from the Quad-Cities and I'd never heard of that thing about cutting the pizza with giant kitchen scissors, but then, I never made it myself...
     
    Also, the best St. Louis-style I've ever had was actually in Kansas City, at a tiny place in the northland called Leo's Pizza.  I mentioned it in the KC trip thread.  Zealously recommended.

    There is no such thing as good Missouri pizza.

    Ann, Provel  "cheese" is an unusual product. I bet it's something like goetta where if you didn't grow up with it, you fail to see its appeal.

    Well, consider me a living counterexample.  I had no idea what St. Louis-style was until a friend of mine moved to that city and I got the chance to try it during a visit.  Provel was definitely a new taste - and I loved it, along with the cracker crust and very thin sauce.  I can see how it wouldn't be for everyone, but to me it's no less of a pizza style than NY or Chicago or New Haven or Quad-Cities or Detroit or anything else.

    Of course, they have a future HOFer as a manager but I thought they were in Kansas.

    The only manager in this World Series who'll be going into the Hall is managing the Giants.

    Ned Yost manages two teams in the World Series? No wonder he's going into the HOF.

    I like goetta. I like baseball. I dont, and never will, like the stuff they call pizza in Missouri.

    My wife lived in KC before I married her and took her from that pizza wasteland. You are right Ann.....it's not pizza....some kind of dough,red sauce and cheese does not necessarily make what we know as pizza!!!!

     My wife used to live in Missouri  as I said above,,,never had anything that came close to a REAL Italian pizza and we tried a lot before she escaped by marrying me and moving back to our home state here in Jersey. Hell most of her friends thought Pizza Hut was authentic....I'd eat a Missouri pizza right after a Missouri Pork Roll sandwich and a Missouri Italian hot dog!
    When in Missouri or Kansas I eat great steak or Barbecue,,,and save the pizza for New Jersey,New York or Connecticut.
