That sounds like heaven. I wonder how truffle oil drizzled on top would taste.

when i want pizza , i call the local "round table" i order one with everything, though i do pick off the bell peppers. or i order a chicken garlic pizza. it has white sauce chicken, lots of garlic and sautéed onions. it is way to expensive for me to buy all the ingredients and make my own. i also ask for anchovies on the side, if i don't have a can in the pantry. i know all the purists are cringing.

I made a pizza on saturday! It was a 13" crispy crust with mozzarella shredded in the food processor and ragu pizza sauce. I sometimes add green peppers, onions, pepperoni, sausage.

Just today I purchased 5 cans of crushed tomatoes to learn how to make my own sauces for pizza & pasta.

I made a pizza last night for dinner. I use a frozen pizza dough from a local market. Last night's was BBQ chicken & bacon. Stretch the dough then brush with some olive oil; season with ground black pepper, salt and garlic powder then top with BBQ sauce. Next add shredded mozzarella and some shredded cheddar; then top with crispy bacon, some diced grilled chicken tenders, and some more cheese.

That sounds really good. There was a pizza place near where I worked in the '90s that specialized in "designer" pizzas--the mango-brie-pizza one was my FAV! Sadly, the owner retired and the person who bought the place didn't keep his menu.

Msmofet--you just killed me. This low carb stuff is for the birds--(but I have lost 65 pounds and my blood sugar and cholesterol numbers are great!)

My tip for good pizza is to make the dough the night before (at least--you can do it a couple of days ahead if you want) and let it raise in the fridge.

I like truffle oil, so that sounds good to me. Unfortunately, my wife can't stand it. I keep my own little bottle around just to drizzle on veggies, eggs, and such.

Mango/habanero is a good pizza combo, too.

I am definitely not in the standard red sauce and cheese camp when it comes to pizza. Especially cheese. Too many places pile on the cheese, and that gives me heartburn flare-ups. I like to use smaller amounts of real flavorful cheeses like Chevre, Romano, and even blue cheese on pizza. Not traditional, but tasty.
