favorite pizza topping

I didn't know what area to put this under, because I didn't see it.

Anyhow, I was wondering what people's favorite toppings for pizza, including homemade, were.

My Mom used to make pizza at home out of her own dough and we would throw all kinds of different stuff on there and for some reason, since I loved pecans and walnuts so much, I decided to make a pizza with that and some sliced tomatoes.

I've never really seen it anywhere else, but I'm sure someone has had to have tried it.

Any thoughts? Can you tell I'm craving pizza?

Moved to Ethnic. Thought that would work.

And mine is basically everything but peppers and anchovies. All the meat you can jam on there, some onions, black olives and I am a happy camper!

I'm with you Alix. Hold the anchovies please, but I do like green peppers. Mushrooms, Canadian bacon, onions, olives, pepperoni, Italian sausage, and any other meat on my thick crust pizza.

One thing I want to try is Canadian bacon and pineapple. I have heard this is so good...

You know, I can leave the pineapple off. I don't much care for fruit on savory things. (BTW, ham and pineapple=Hawaiian pizza, Ken's fave)

Either you love the pineapple or you loathe it. Never heard anyone who was halfway about it.

Mine is the same as Alix's; I do like bell pepper on pizza but they don't like my stomach. Definitely no anchovies and for sure, no pineapple.

Mushrooms, more mushrooms, a good spicy fresh tomato sauce and/or fresh sliced romas, canadian bacon, sliced black olives, diced onions, diced green peppers, no salami, pepperoni or other greasy meats, real mozzarela, maybe a bit of cheddar -- not too heavy on the cheese! A great crust that's chewy, crisp and light. Mmmm...

One of the best pies I ever had was at a little place run by an Italian from Brooklyn .... a blaco pizza - just olive oil, some herbs, and cheese. Unfortunately - he folded after about 6 months.

texasgirl - I love the spinach alfredo pizza ... every had it with diced smoked chicken on top? The chicken alfredo pizza is good, too - but when you mix them together ... HEAVEN! Okay - so shoot me ... I like spinach.

I like just about anything on a pizza - although I must admit I prefer East coast to West coast styles. Double the sausage, mushrooms, olives, cheese - but hold off on the bean sprouts!
