When I think of pan pizza I think of Pizza Hut. You should check out the Pizza Hut commercial with Swedish Sven on youtube- it's hilarious!

The concept of pan pizza got off to a slow start, at least on a national level. Many of the pizzerias around Chicago or New York gave it little thought. The normal feature was a thick crust, but not raised along the edge (or stuffed with cheese), and cooked in an iron pan. In Madison, Wisconsin, 1974, a single pizza place named Rocky Rococo specialized in pan style pizza by slice. As Rocky R. grew into a chain, the company hired a guy who had the perfect look and image, to be the spokesman in TV and radio ads, as a "live" Rocky (the guy is in his 60s now, still doing it). White blazer, white fedora hat, thick mustache and dark glasses. The character resembles somebody belonging to Al Capone's bunch, but the concept succeeded. Over 43 years, the chain has expanded to a meager 30 stores (high franchise costs, perhaps), with only two outside Wisconsin. It took Pizza Hut until 1983 to catch on, offering personal or regular size pans.
