I am a pizzaholic...even bad pizza is good. BUT...really good pizza is CULINARY ART. It could be a fine traditional Margarita with basil and mozarella. Or it could be an artisinal with whole wheat/micro brew ale crust topped with caramelized red onions, baby spinach, roasted garlic, sliced tomato, feta cheese and jumbo shrimp. Recently had a great one: standard tomato sauce and cheese w/ prosciuto, calamata olives, and goat cheese with fresh herbs. Awesome! but hey, sausage and peppers with mushrooms is great too!

I'm a big fan of the touchy-feely West Coast pizza toppings; artichoke hearts, mushrooms, goat cheese, sun-dried tomatoes, spinach, feta, garlic, fresh basil, etc.

Thumbs up

I like mine relatively plain. I always want pepperonia, sausage (non-spicy), and green peppers on top. Definitely no anchovies, don't like olives and if I find them I pick them off. I don't like pineapple (or any fruit) on top either.

I don't mind something like onions, but only if they're chopped, not sliced into rings.

I did try a pizza with chicken topping once and it was very good.

No fish, no fruit, no spam. After that, anything.

awww, you're really missing something if you don't like fish on your pizza claire. ok, well not the fish itself necessarily, altho calamari pizza is good if done properly, but if you like mussels marinara or fra diavolo, try taking a little of the leftover sauce from the mussels (much like adding anchovy paste when making the sauce, but stronger) and putting it on your pizza. or better yet, make the pizza with the fish flavored sauce.

it is pizza nirvana... until the next slice, with chopped raw onions and franks red hot...

bucky, i can't eat pizza now without dousing it in hot sauce, lol. i love it like that!
and don't get me started on how yummy the raw onions are on it.
and lots of black pepper. and oregano. this little pizza place here got me into putting oregano or Italian seasoning on my pizza and it is so good like that.

bucky and luvs, if I have a combination pizza my favorite addition is jalapeno peppers after the pizza has come out of the oven.

pickled or fresh sc?

luvs, try some dried savory instead of oregano the next time you have pizza, or flirt with the pizza guy and get him to make it with savory. it's a nice change, especially if you like oregano-ey pizzas...

bucky, I like pickled if the pizza has been baked already. If I am putting the jalapenos on before the baking I use fresh.

I agree......even bad pizza is still good (or better than no pizza).

What is it about Pizza Hut deep dish? It is sooooooooooooo good. Now, PH is nowhere near my favorite when it comes to pizza, but their deep dish is fantastic the way it slightly crunches.
