Cutting round pizza into squares

  • r

A guy at work says that he has only seen pizza places in central CT cut their round pizza's into squares... and wants to know if this is a yankee thing, or how did it come about. Besides CT, does anyone else do it that way? Etc.

      I think it's a Greek-pizza thing too. Shameless and well-deserved plug: Greek-owned Post Corner Pizza in Darien, Conn., on Route 1, does this, and their pizza is something I'm happy to battle I-95 traffic for, since I don't live nearby anymore.

    2. It's not uncommon to see square slices in St. Louis.

      1. It's also done in St Louis.

        1. There's a place in Milwaukee, called Zaffiro's, that cuts its round pie into squares (see photo).

          1. Regular pizza (as opposed to deep dish) is almost always cut in squares in the Chicago area.
