Why do kids prefer thick crust pizza? Not very nourishing.

In brief: Fat tastes good.

Foods that taste good contain sugar, salt and fat, generally.
Pizza contains two of these, and thick crust contains even more of them than regular pizza. Kids like foods that taste good. So there you go.

In brief: Thick crust pizza

Kids generally like bread, and thick crust pizza is a lot of bread.
They also like the chewiness. And you're right, it is not very nourishing, but actually the bread is the least fattening/lowest cholesterol component of the pizza.
