We’ve all gotten so used to thick pizza crusts that are stuffed with cheese or sausages or anything else that can really be stuffed into a pizza. So used to it that we’ve forgotten that there’s actually more to pizza than what kind of stuffing your crust can have. Thin crust pizzas are the way to go, though. Crisp and simple, these crusts are then covered in cheese and sauce, before being topped with your choice of meats or vegetables. Besides being crispier and thinner, thin crust pizzas could also be considered a little healthier than your deep dish or even your regular pizza base.
