What Are the Different Styles of Pizza?

Pizza people are often VERY particular about the nuances of various pizza styles and with good reason. Pizza starts as a blank slate: dough with toppings. How that dough is prepared, handled, baked and topped drastically alters the end result. So, to help with the confusion of categorization, I will provide for you a quick guide to various pizza styles from MY perspective.
