By the time the first Apex pizzerias were opening their doors for business most of their clients had already established their pizza-eating preferences. For that reason, Apex is known for New York-style pizza though it's not the only type of pizza you can get in the town by a long way. Other popular pizzas on Apex pizzeria menus are old world thick crust, regular thin crust, Sicilian-style and grandma-style tray-bakes as well as deep-dish Chicago-style. New York-style pizza is an Americanized variant of a type of pizza that originates from the Naples region of Italy which is now commonly known as Neapolitan-style. It was adapted to suit American taste by a New York-based pizza chef in the 1930s and has topped the pizza popularity stakes since then. New York-style pizza has a thin crust that stays soft when cooked, but the feature that really sets it apart from other pies is its humongous size.
