Pizza Toppings? What's your fav?

I enjoy making homemade pizza ...dough, sauce, and I vary the toppings..I'm making pizza for dinner and would like to put a new spin on the toppings. I normally use, carmelized onion, roasted red peppers, pineapple, and caciatorre sausage sliced..For the cheese combination I use, grated Fruilano, Aged Provolone, and Mozzarella, my sauce is a can of crushed Utopia tomatoes, fresh thyme, S & P, a little extra virgin olive oil, sugar, red pepper flakes. Soooo, help me please ...give me some new ideas here.

        Ahhhhhh now there's a combo I like alot..Thanks Would never think of fig & proscuitto mmmmm

        1. re: flipkeat

          fig, proscuitto and for cheese, a little brie is good.
          my mom used to make a flatbread with those on top. the recipe called for blue, though, but i like brie more. I'm sure blue would go well with the fig and proscuitto.

            Brie yaya that's the ticket for that combo...Thanks Jeserf!! I like the sound of that combo...

          1. If I had to pick one topping it would be proscutto.

            Some other toppings I like to add on ocassions are gorgonzola cheese, sliced meatballs, fried eggplant, carmelized onion, spinach & feta, fresh basil.

            Usually no more than two toppings I'll add in addition to the sauce & cheese.

              Agreed on the sliced meatballs. If a pizza joint is offering this topping I always go for it.
