In this day in age, ordering a pizza is much more in depth. First of all, you need to find the best pizza deal or pizza coupons in order to figure out who you're going to order from. After that is settled, then you need to decide on a pizza crust. Do you like thin crust, hand tossed, pan, stuffed, wheat crust, or flavored crust? Here is a review of the different pizza crust available by most pizza shops.

Thin Crust - Usually a very thin crunchy dough, this crust is sometimes referred to as a cracker crust. Sometimes, a pizza with this crust maybe a little more on the greasy side because there really isn't any dough to soak up the grease. If you enjoy getting the full flavor of your toppings, this is probably the best choice for you.

Hand Tossed Crust - This is the original style pizza crust. You know, the kind you see flying in the air from that pizza shop in downtown New York. Often times, this crust will be thinner in the middle and thicker towards the outside of the pizza.

Pan Style Crust - This is the thickest of the available pizza crust. The pan crust can be as thick as 2 inches, so if you are looking for a crust that will fill you up, this is the one!

Stuffed Pizza Crust - This type of crust is known for what is stuffed into the crust of the pizza. The stuffing is usually cheese, but it has been known to have pepperoni it as well. The pizza crust itself is usually a hand tossed style crust, so they can stretch the pizza dough a little farther in order to have room for the stuffing.

Wheat Crust - Wheat crust has recently been gaining a presence in the pizza industry due to the health conscious population. The whole wheat variety of crust is usually lower in calories, fat, and cholesterol. Depending on your topping selection, this can be worked into your diet!

Flavored Crust - Flavoring of this pizza crust is a novel idea, you pick the dough type and the seasoning. There are a few pizza chains that offer crust toppers or flavoring! If you're not really a crust eater, ask you local pizza shop if they offer flavored crust.

Different pizza shops use different pizza crust recipes and some of them even offer more than one choice. The pizza industry isn't the same as it once was, there are new pizza shops popping up every week and the key to sticking around is in the dough. They are always coming out with some new type of crust or dough to entice you into ordering from them. Don't be afraid to try a new pizza crust, you may find out that it is better than your usual choice!
