For me it is all about the crust (first), sauce (second) and the cheese, so it is not as much about the toppings as those 3 in combination. If I am visting my family ithas to be pizza from one of the local pizzerias, Bottisti's. Here at home if I don't make my own, the closest comes from a place called Mom & Pops (we are actually having that tonight for dinner).

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.

I think you've never had a good pizza if it was too bready or the sauce was overbearing.
The adds for Kraft cheese that says "no one drools over the crust" is so wrong

Concur on the crust.

I don't think you can get the Neopolitan mojo going in a conventional home oven, though. Just not hot enough.

However, if you are one of the fortunates that have a large brick oven......

I have a lot of friends in a lot of cities and several countries that would argue that. I am simply not someone who likes much sauce or bread on pizza....which boils down to I don't care much for pizza. Give me a bowl of perfectly grilled veggies and some fresh-baked, herbed bread with a drop of quality olive oil and cracked pepper over pizza any day. Or Pizza Hut's cracker bread with some toppings and save on time. I don't drool over cheese either...especially not Kraft's.

I can see you and I would have fun together. I don't care for the typical pizza. I like a super thin crust, no sauce, super sweet fresh tomatoes, shredded basil , evoo drizzled on top and a smidge of whole milk mozz on top, I even like to sprinkle with a little kosher salt. I have people look at me as if I'm crazy, when I order, but I don't care for all the junk, meat and cheese...

I can understand that, as I said In a earlier post---- "I love everything from an olive oil and salt Pizza Bianca"--- that's right, just olive oil and salt

Then we would get along just great. I plan to dig in and make some pizza when I can stand longer. The thought of a crusty thin pizza hot and drizzled with evoo and salt, emmmm yummy.

I just read this:

Domenico Crolla’s “Pizza Royale 007″ sold for $4,200 in 2006. It was a "12 inch pizza densely packed with an assortment of some of the world’s most expensive food ingredients, such as lobster marinated in cognac, caviar soaked in champagne, sunblush tomato sauce, Scottish smoked salmon, venison medallions, prosciutto, and vintage balsamic vinegar. In addition to all these fine ingredients, it’s topped with a significant amount of edible 24-carat gold flakes."

...you couldn't pay me $4k to eat gold...well, wait...yeah ya could
