I love very thick crust (which is why I prefer my home made pizza). I love lots of cheese (mozzerella, romano, parmesan), pepperoni, mushrooms, and black olives. I like other things too, but most of the time I order pizza with those three toppings. I like onions, and sometimes I like Canadian bacon and pineapple. I like a good Margherita pizza. I absolutely cannot stand sausage or hamburger on pizza, and I'm sure I wouldn't like anchovies on it either. James is a little more forgiving about what he likes on pizza. He likes his with a really crisp thin crust. He doesn't like sausage but will eat it. There was a pizza place he used to go to in Ottumwa that served his favorite, which had Canadian bacon, pineapple, and sauerkraut.

I'm actually very fond of the pizzas we serve at the restaurant where I work. We use a 7" Roselli dough, stretching and docking it to a largish oval. Basically a one/two person pizza with a thin, crispy crust (it helps to have a clay-lined oven that runs @ 650 degrees!).

Any toppings are good, but I like italian sausage, pepperoni, red onions, portabellos, provelone & mozzy (with a tiny bit of parm & smoked cheddar). And I'm an 'extra red sauce' kinda guy! I eat pizza very very rarely (quite carby, you know), but it's a treat I do enjoy on occasion.
If we're not supposed to eat animals, then how come they're made out of meat?

We always start with extra cheese and onions, and go from there.

Often just order what we call a garbage pizza, that is to say a pie with the works (but please no pineapple or ham).

Never order one with anchovies because one of us cannot tolerate them. And you cannot, I will admit, put anchovies on just one half a pie. The flavor oozes over to the adjacent slices and truly does pollute them (a great way to get most of the pie for yourself, but it really isn't fair).

Not too long ago we went to see my sil and bil, hundreds of miles away. Her palate is beyond compare (that means she likes anchovies on pizza too, lol).

On pizza night we decided to buy two pies, one for those who shun anchovies and one for the culinary enlightened (sil and myself).

Believe it or not we could not find a pizzeria that had anchovies. And this was in a place that has a pizza joint in every mall.

Finally was reduced to buying a tin of them and putting them on ourselves.

Where is the culinary world going, one must ask.

Have no idea what Escoffier liked on his pizza but would bet with the trufles, caviar, and foie gras there would have been a few anchovies.

At least I hope so.

Since pineapple doesn't appear on the poll as an option, I have to assume the very idea disgusts the author of the poll! Love pineapple, love dried tomatoes. Otherwise, the usual toppings we put on ours when we make it at home are mushrooms, onions, and bacon. Cheese and tomato sauce go without saying.
