Outside of chicken wings and beef on weck, the food that is most associated with Buffalo and Western New York is pizza. More specifically, Buffalo-style pizza.

Buffalo pizza is not New York or Chicago pizza. Instead, it's a cross between them both.

It's got a slightly thicker crust than New York style. It features extra cheese and cup-and-char pepperoni, rather than the flat and wide pepperoni you see in most other parts of the country. The topping sometimes extend all the way to the crust and the tomato sauce is sweeter.

Buffalo style pizza isn't exactly the healthiest thing for you but it's what makes it unique. You can go anywhere in the City of Buffalo or surrounding suburbs to find a great slice of Buffalo style pizza.
