Pizza toppings?

Hi , i am making a pizza this weekend from scratch.

I was thinking of a tomaotey base with some chilli sauce to give it some zing , with the toppings being carmalised red onions , peppers , tomatoes , and mushrooms. With some mixed herbs and garlic.

Do you think the pizza needs anything extra like olives or sweet corn , or chicken tikka pieces.

Thanks for oyur help

I'd add some mozzarella cheese. No need for anything else.

all according to taste. pizza is one of those great foods that can taste good with almost anything. if you have the budget, buffalo mozzarella and real parmesan cheese make a huge difference. add some fresh basil leaves after baking as well

I think olives would be good to give it a little salty zing.

Pizza is different for everyone. I enjoy traditional myself, putting chicken, pineapple, corn. etc would make me look for a can of something in the pantry to eat instead. But some people like non-traditional pizza. For me, it's just crust, a spicy red sauce, pepperoni, and lotza motza and I'm good to go At most I add onions, bell peppers, mushrooms and maybe some Italian sausage.

Remember when adding the veggies to cut them very thin, in my experience, cutting thick results in a very thick pizza that is tough to heat properly. The bigger the pieces, the longer it will have to bake.

I kind of agree w/ that, my staple pizza is thin crispy crust, light on the sauce, "lotza motza" and double pepperoni. BUT, recently I had a pizza w/ ham, onions, mushrooms and pineapple. I was leery, but it was actually pretty good.

I love sliced green olives on a pizza, especially if you have ham on as one of the meats..

a little garlic powder in the dough, feta cheese, and some habenero spice for heat.

I put leftover elbow noodles on ours last night, with some canned pineapples.
