Building your ideal pizza?

Mine would be: Onion/garlic thin crust, topped with double cheese, pepperoni, mushrooms, bell peppers, pineapple, onion and jalapeños and baked well done.

What's yours?

  1. Ever since trying this, one of my favorites is a knock-off of the BBQ chicken. Build the sauce with 1/2 tomato sauce + 1/2 of your favorite BBQ sauce (usually I use KC masterpiece). Red onion, chopped cooked chicken, black olives, mozzarella cheese. Blind bake the crust, put top pizza and bake again. Sprinkle chopped cilantro and serve.

    1. whole wheat thin crust, tons of homemade sauce, light on the cheese, sundried tomatoes, roasted garlic, toppped with extra virgin olive oil, fresh basil, and fresh rosemary.

      1. When it comes to food, I'm not a minimalist. That's not to say that I/you have to over eat. I just like things done on a larger scale most of the time. So with that said, deep dish crust, lots of sauce, cheese and meat. Also, I love green olives on mine.
        Some of the favourite meat items are, pepperoni and bacon of course. Hot Italian sausage but only if it's good stuff. The one thing that I've just discovered is fantastic on pizza is cappicolo. The spicy stuff of course.

        So put me down for deep dish crust, extra sauce, extra cheese, pepperoni, bacon, cappicolo and green olives. Well done.

          I love all kinds of food, minus seafood. I just love plain old, thin crusted, brick oven cheese and pperoni pizza with fresh basil, never get sick of it.

        2. Southside of Chicago Special:

          Thin crust, cheese, sausage, and mushroom.

          My 2nd favorite:

          Thin crust, cheese, sausage, italian beef, mushrooms, green peppers, and giardinara.

          1. carmelized onions, artichokes, spinach, mushrooms, fresh chopped jalepenos, combo of fresh mozz and feta (just enough to hold all the veggies together), zesty marina, and a whole wheat, thin crust with plenty of olive oil and salt on the edges........... mmmm
