Thanks.

Sometime, i do mix them up a little. Being an asian, i do like to put some white onion and cut chilli (about 1/3 inch thick) on top of the cheese as I like them a little char grilled.

There is no "carved in stone" rules regarding what goes on a pizza. It is all personal choice. In Hawaii, they put pineapple on theirs along with Spam.

2 1/4 teaspoon yeast
1 cup warm water
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons olive oil
2 1/2 to 3 1/2 cups flour (I use a mixture of whole wheat and all purpose)

As far as when to put the cheese on, I usually cheese it, put on toppings, and put a little more cheese on top.

You can usually buy pizza dough from a pizza place.

Juniper, there is in fact a white sauce for Pizza, but I have never made it, but the one I had while in Rome was awesome. As far as order of things yes usually it is sauce, stuff, cheese, however being, just like you a father, of 5 who cooks, in a hurry I have made mistakes and put cheese first and then the toppings. Haven't had anybody complain. So if once in a while you put the cheese instead of toppings or toppings instead of cheese, I am sure your family will still be happy.

I may have to pick up some of that. Got a project I am working on (crawfish stuffed bread) and do not want to spend all day working a dough.

thats so very true. a little improvisation will always keep things interesting.

As for the pizza dough, I usually add some mix herbs into the flour before I add the dough mixture to give the pizza bread a little herb aroma. my kid really loves it.

May I know what sort of pizza sauce do you guys put on your pizza? Do you used to ready made from cans or do you have some special way of making your own?

italian american pizza sauce is usually a little on the sweet side here in nyc, and often contains a good amount of oregano and basil, but not much else.

unless the pizza makers are originally from the other side of the adriatic. i've found "yugoslav" pizzas are heavy on herbs (oregano, parsley, rosemary, thyme, etc.) and are more acidic.

i prefer the italian american style.
