I'm a traditionalist when it comes to pizza. I like thin crust. Whether you call it Neapolitan or New York style is up to you. You can use sliced romas or a tomato sauce. Fresh mozzarella and fresh basil are all good.

Toppings? Nothing new age for me. I limit meats to pepperoni, sausage and bacon. Veggies - onions, mushrooms, black olives and green peppers are OK. Not all together though. That makes pizzas soggy.

Chicken, ham, pineapple, broccoli, BBQ sauce, buffalo chicken, white sauces are all good things to eat. They just don't belong on a pizza.

Just my opinion.

Ultrathin crust. Cracker consistency. Midwest meats and cheeses. (I don't care if cows are happier in California!)

Sausage, mushroom, bacon, black olives. Fresh tomato slices on top if its summer. Thin sliced garlic if there is no chance of companionship.

I like mozza and basil.

In fact, I just started my wood fired pizza oven project out in the patio.

Regular crust, not too heavy on the sauce, extra mozz., pepperoni, and crumbled bacon. That's it I ready for pizza tomorrow night!

My favorite pizza is usually the one in front of me. I never met a pizza I didn't like although some are more memorable than others. So tonight my favorite was this one, which I made for dinner :)

Home made crust, artichokes, kalamata olives (with pits), mushrooms, onions and red pepper. It was a good crust, crisp on the bottom and chewy in the middle and there was a snappy sauce with a basil/fennel finish when you inhale just before that anticipated first bite.

Oh Yum.

I have tried Matchbox and I agree with you their pizza is exceptional. I still think Neapolitan is my favorite and I have yet to try 2 Amy's which the article recommends for a good Neapolitan pizza. Have you ever tried a pizza from 2 Amy's.

Has to be thin crust and pepperoni with cheese is my favorite. Lots of toppings are cool, but sometimes I just want something simple.

Yep, thin crisp crust of course, with thick sliced pepperoni and mushroom and or even just cheese.
If I could fine a thin, chewy crust that would be awesome.
I like red bell peppers too, sometimes.
I recently tried eggs on my pepperoni pizza, and it was yummy!
And I made polenta crust with the pepperoni traditional toppings, and it was soooo good!
I think I'll try potatoes on one next.
Never really met a pizza or a potato I didn't like, lol.
I also want to try out kimchee pizza.
Hmmmmmm, now how about mashed potatoes on a pizza...

Sounds like a carbohydrateholic.
Being a pizza fan myself, I've concluded:
It's worth the effort to learn how to make it yourself.
You'll consume less carbs if you only eat the pizzas you make yourself.
