Brooklyn Style Pizza

Domino's "Brooklyn Style" has been available for at least a year.

The local pizza place that I go to in Berkeley is sometimes described as
"Brooklyn style" in the local papers. The owner is from Brooklyn. Although
this citation describes the pizzeria as "Brooklyn style," not the pizza:

"This is a walk-up Brooklyn-style pizzeria with a Bay Area twist. Fresh
organic produce and sesonal vegetable make for a mouth-wateringly good slice
of pie." 30 March 2005,

Starting a few months ago, they've been running (or did run--I think
the campaign is over around here) a TV commercial for these
Brooklyn-style pizzas, featuring taxi drivers with "Brooklyn accents".
