"Minnesota-style" pizza is a thin crust with lots of toppings and cheese. However, it's not the toppings that define it; the true "Minnesota Style" comes in how it's cut and served. The key feature is that the pizza must be sliced into squares

The Red's Savoy Pizza team gets credit for coining the phrase. They've been serving pizza with this distinctive style since 1965.
