I love everything from an olive oil and salt Pizza Bianca to a good Neapolitan to a good New york style to a Chicago Deep Dish. Although I've been enjoying the simpler ones lately

I like a thin crust pizza with good tomato sauce and then you can go for it with toppings. Good parmesan or romano is a must, but after that I'll go for anything or nothing.

Oh, dear, I had to correct myself. No fish or fruit.

When I was a little girl (early 60s), pizza wasn't really a meal, but a late night snack. Mom & Dad would make Chef Boy-ar-di pizzas and they'd put on slices of hot dogs and strips of American cheese. This was such a treat!

I just love mushrooms on my pizza and a lot of them.

Neopolitan style pizza is by far my favorite. Light crispy crust with a balanced amount of ingredients.

One of the most interesting I have had was topped with prosciutto, goat cheese, fresh figs, sprinkled with fresh rosemary and a drizzle of very high quality balsamic vinegar.

This place is near my home:

They have been certified by the Naples Pizza Mafia (Associazione Verace Pizza Napoletana). Only a handful of places in the US have this.

I just looked at your link, Tutta Bella is on the list.

Pizza

Typically, I do not care for pizza. The crust is often too "bready" for me or the sauce is overbearing. That being said, I do like the THIN and CRISPY pizza at Pizza Hut with their supreme toppings.

A long time ago, Pizza Hut tried a "Mexican Pizza", which I totally loved. I so wish I could find somewhere that made it now days.

Your right the article does mention Tutta Bella! I didn't realize there was a Naples Pizza Mafia - I wonder how I could find out if 2 Amys which is closest to me is certified. Very interesting thank you for the insight!

My own that I've made from scratch. IMHO the crust makes or breaks the pizza.
