Very thin crust. Nothing like a cracker, but not soft. Minimal sauce, a thin paint of tomato paste, oil and garlic. Mushrooms on provolone with chunks of brie.

I love the exceptionally thin crusts! Like GLC, not like a cracker, but not soft.

I'll have to go with thin crust.
Not cracker thin but I don't want a lot of bread.
For me it's about the topping but I do want the crust to have a yeasty flavor and that nice char with a nice amount of those lovely bubbles.

Toppings only at this time.

Being a Brit I don't have knowledge of the named varieties in the OP but I prefer a medium thickness crust ands lots and lots of toppings. I buy jars of antipasti - roast aubergines/egg plant, sundried tomatoes in oil, baby artichokes, etc., and I use black olives because I love them. Tomato puree/paste and "good" mozzarella as well. I expect a real pizza-holic would say mine's a bit of a dustbin pizza but I like it and so do my guests.
Don’t look for the light at the end of the tunnel. Stomp along and switch the bl**dy thing on yourself.

I do thin and crisp most of the time, especially for a veggie pizza (I like it fairly simple with mushrooms, onions, green pepper and tomatoes, plus sauce and cheese).

However, sometimes a good chewy crust just hits the spot, especially for a pizza heavy with sausage or pepperoni. I like to add some Italian herbs to the dough when I make my crust, and that makes it eat well all by itself.
