Many of the first restaurant owners in Poughkeepsie made the trip north from New York after New York-style pizza had become the next big thing. They didn't go for the same mega-sized pies, but Poughkeepsie has still become known for thin crust pizza. Thin crust has been adopted for pretty much every type of pizza in Poughkeepsie including several, like Sicilian, which are usually thick crust. Thin crust is basically a traditional Italian pizza but one in which a lesser quantity of dough is used to make the base. It makes for a crispier pie all round, but one that's still capable of holding plenty of topping ingredients without going soft and soggy like a New York-style pizza does when it's overloaded. In Poughkeepsie, as well being offered in different styles, you'll find pizzerias that bake thin crusts in wood and coal-fired ovens, and even some who make them the pan-baked way. Round or square and no matter how it's been baked, thin crust is one of the best pizzas you can eat.
