Thin crust - not cracker thin, but much thinner than typical take-out.

Good tomatoes (fresh or canned) peeled, seeded, and hand-crushed.

Splash of wine in the tomatoes.

Aged mozzarella - long enough to intensify it's flavor.

Finely grated Parmigiano Reggiano.

Minced fresh oregano and basil.

EVOO infused with some garlic and a few chile flakes.

Some salty slices of good oil-cured black olives.

Ripping hot wood/charcoal oven, or typical home oven at 550F.
Porous stone base.

This whole thread is making me drool! IMO a good quality pizza has an impecable crust. Any thickness is fine with me really as long as it is balanced with sauce and toppings.

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...
Fresh tomato pizza with a bit of basil, some garlic....and evoo...a bit of cheese on a thin crust sounds fantastic! It almost makes me want to plant a tomato plant...or two. I have basil growing. *ponders*

A little bit Ginger. A little bit Mary Ann.
