Pizza survey - Thin crust, or thick crust?

Just a fun survey i wanted to do, when it comes to pizza, do you prefer a thin NY style type crust, or a thick Sicilian or maybe Chicago type crust? Lets all be respectful of each others choices and not bash others for their choice as no answer is right or wrong on this.. its all due to someones culture and taste preferences :) That said, i grew up in NY, so my answer to this- Thin crust

Thin crust here in the USA. Then there is really thin crust, almost cracker thin, that I had in Antibes, France.

Thin, regular and a little saucy

That being said , I love all pizza, but the above is my preference.

I like a thin crust if its a plain cheese, nothing beats a 1/8th slice of a 20" thin crust cheese pie...
BUT if we are talking, sausage, peppers, onions, mushrooms, and cheese then I want a 14-16" thick crust pizza well done with light sauce, maybe a side of sauce in a cup to dip the crust in...

To me thats the beauty about pizza, thin, thick, deep crust, with red, white, or no sauce, then pick a cheese or 3, then toppings, veggies, meat, fish, whatever you can think up, its one of them things that can fit everyone...

One of the best recipes I have for pizza that always impresses is stuffed eggplant parm.
Soak your eggplant and prep it like you would any breaded eggplant, I do a simple egg and italian breadcrumb dredge for the stuffed pizza. Fry it lightly and set it aside..

Get a 3-4" deep pan, roll your bottom dough a little thick and run it up over the sides like a pie crust.

Coat the bottom with sauce {lightly}, layer in the eggplant, low moisture mozz, and sauce between each layer, fill about 2/3ds the way... I put a final layer of thin sliced capicola on the top of the eggplant... Sometimes I will do slicing pepperoni and others no meat at all..

Put a top layer of dough over it all and crust it like a pie, I like to use my pastry wheel side ways, it makes nice ridged semi circles and seals very well, but a fork works too... Put a few slots in the top with your bread lame and bake it hot... You can brush it with egg, olive oil, put some pepper and red pep flakes over the top, what ever floats your boat.. Let it cool before cutting its a nice different take on the everyday pizza...

I apologise for every one of my posts turning into a recipe, I don't know why that keeps happening..

Sicilian-type crust for me but not that crackery thin commercial crust.
Imo, deep dish chicago style pizza doesn't really qualify as "pizza". It's more like a casserole than a pizza - not bad to eat - just not really pizza ;)
