The pizzerias of Sheboygan may have been opening for business when New York-style pizza was all the rage, but that's not the pie the restaurant owners chose to bake nor is it the pizza this Wisconsin city is known for. Many of the Italian migrants that relocated to Sheboygan were natives or descendants of people from the Rome region of Italy. Around Rome, one of the standard styles of baking pizza was and still is with a thin crust and so Sheboygan is known for thin crust pizza. As well as baking regular thin crust, the Sheboygan pizzerias have kept up with the times by also offering their clients New York-style, but it is mostly secondary to their authentic Italian pie. While the thickness of the base might be similar, there's a big difference in texture between the two. Thin crust is crusty and crispy whereas New York-style is soft and pliable. Which is best? It all boils down to personal taste.
