Question Your fantasy pizza?

It's you, your crust of choice (deep dish, thin, extra crispy, etc), and any ingredients you could possibly want (sort of like having access to the Iron Chef kitchen, minus the cool Japanese commentary). What are you going to put on your ultimate pizza?

That image is 2 cute, Jessica!! Makes me feel like jumping right in!!

Mmm, that is a very tough question you have posed...

I would definetely like very thin and crunchy Roman style dough, and for topping? I would be hard pressed between

-zucchini flowers/porcini mushrooms/scamorza
-quattro formaggi (4 cheeses) & smoked pancetta
-melanzane parmigiano

They are all my favourites of favourites!!

Double crust, tomato sauce, pepperoni, pineapple, and pepperocini. Every time I place an order for that pizza I get asked "So, when are you due?" Oh, but it's sooo good.

i frequently get one of my favorite pies, from a place near my house.

it's thin crust, with not too much sauce or cheese, topped with hot and sweet peppers, onions, mushrooms, and eggplant, and a little garlic and hot pepper flakes.

others i would like to have are:

thin crust, seafood/fra diavolo sauce, cheese, and raw onion.

thin crust, a fresh tomato sauce (not cooked down too much), fresh basil, and bufala mozzarella.

thick crust, pulled pork tomato sauce, extra cheese, peppers and onions.

there's so many, i'll add more later..

There's a place in Lafayette, LA called Deano's. They make this pizza called the Cajun Executioner: medium thick crust, sauce, shrimp, jalapenos, hot sausage, green peppers, and cheese.

Hmmm.......may have to make a stop there on the way through town this year.

I love your choices! Easy to spot that you live in Italy!

I have such a hard time picking favourites. Some days I'd be delighted with a big thin crust Margarita (with lots of fresh basil), other days I want the works. Black olives, pineapple, loads of cheese, bell peppers. I love pizza so much!!!

You're a sweetie Licia, I'm sure that would be a blast! Though he was born in Rome, his folks now live in Marche, but it would be great to see his old stomping ground whilst in Italy too!

Well, my fantasy pizza would probably be a pretty standard round pie topped with pepperoni, sausage, mushrooms and hot peppers, and it would be brought in and served by ... nevermind, this is a family site...

I prefer regular crust pizza, but thin crust is fine too. Can't quite get into the thick crust. My husband likes sausage and pepperoni on his, and that's what I usually eat too, but my favorite is one our local Dominoe's makes, called the "olive lover's" pizza, that's loaded with cheese and assorted sliced olives.
