It may seem strange that Appleton isn't known for Wisconsin-style pizza which is a thin crust, square-cut pie popular in many parts of the state, but it's not. Appleton is known for pan-baked pizza and you'll find several different variations of pan-baked pies on the menus here. In the pizzerias in Appleton, you'll find deep-dish Chicago-style pizzas that are pan-baked, pan-baked thick crust, and grandma-style tray-bakes. Why that should be is unclear, but could relate to the early days before electricity when pizzas were baked in wood-fired ovens and the metal pan helped prevent the dough from charring. It could also be that the pizza cooks of Appleton love greasing their metal pans and have become emotionally attached to them. While no-one knows for sure about that, the one sure fact is that baking a pie in a pan actually doesn't affect the taste of the pizza or the way it looks when it's served.
