This thread is making me crave pizza. I might make the dough before I go to bed so it'll be ready to bake tomorrow. My kitchen is ~c~o~l~d~ (that's supposed to be shivers) so dough takes it's time to rise, which is a good thing, I think.


I like lots of toppings. Not ham and pineapple and oddities like that though. I prefer Italian vegetable antipasto goodies in jars and good mozzarella
I tend to agree. Pizza crust should not be like a soda cracker. It can be crisp and still retain some "chew" as well.

I watched a show today of a pizza place that was doing a decorating overhaul. It is here in Mass. So we looked it up on line. We looked at their menu. They have one pizza with BBQ sauce and meats of your choice. They also had some crazy cheeses for it that I have never heard of. Sure. Doesn't everyone want BBQ sauce on their pizza?

Addie, there are people who like grilled onions and BBQ chicken on pizza. Not I, but I do like one back-home place that made a ham/pineapple/almond/cinnamon version that was so much better than it sounds. You can't judge taste by the menu.

RP, I like fence-sitter crust too. I don't like thin because it either breaks up, or flops, which has to be fixed by folding it over.

Your post made me think of an image I saw making the rounds today:

A place I go for lunch occasionally has a Captain Morgan barbecued shrimp flatbread pizza. I absolutely love it.

Normally, I'm a traditionalist when it comes to pizza, but I sure love it when I step out of the box and find something different.

I like thick-crust pizza, with the crust bread-like and yeast, and topped with a rich and spice tomato sauce, lots of sauce, and all the regular fixin's common to a U.S. pizza, not pineapple though.

That being said, there is a place that used to be called Kings Pizza, in my home town, that makes a crust that is not thick, but that is not thin either. They make the pizza (and it's truly gourmet pizza), then fold it in half and roll the edges in, like a pastie. They then brush it with something to make it shine, probably either milk or egg wash, then bake it until it's golden brown. It of course is called a pizza pastie, and is one of the great culinary triumphs of our time. The place changed hands and is now called Upper Crust Pizza. It's pricey, but oh so worth it every once in a while.

But I say again, if it's not a pizza pastie, then I want a thick, yeasty, chewy-soft crust. What can I say, I'm a Yooper.

had the chance to go to Uno's in Chicago. The line was around the building and down the block. We got personal pizzas for everyone. I'd heard such great things about their pizza. Sadly, it wasn't for me. I am not fond of chemically leavend crust, i.e. backing soda/baking powder. I love a yeast crust.

Good thing there are so many people that have different tastes than mine. Uno's would go out of business if I was the only patron. That being said, they must be doing something right. As I said, the line was long, like on an aircraft carrier and supper time.

I hear ya, Chief. Many years ago, my cousin who lives in the Chicago area took me to a "famous" deep dish pizza place. We waited in line for at least an hour. The end result was "meh" at best.
