      You could add slices of pear to that one. (The onion/roquefort/proscuitto one)

    2. TVC15, great lineup so far.
      Over the weekend, I gave this spring-inspired pizza a try and it was very delicious!

          You're slipping, ghg.

          It took you over 20 minutes from the time of the OP to dig out a search link ...

            ha! yes, but only about 30 seconds from the time i first *spotted* the OP ;)

              I think you should change your handle to "residentsearchguru" or "rsg" for short.

            And even with your marvelous sleuthing skills, I believe the one I posted is new (?) could that be possible :>)

              highly possible - i've been suffering from severe brain fog lately. glad someone's on the case to pick up my slack ;)

                I hope its due to great work opps and business ventures!

                    I'll keep asking until the grand opening !

                      you won't need to. trust me, i'll get the word out ;)

          3. Our favorite is swirls of both tomato and pesto sauce with artichoke hearts, cremini mushrooms, fresh mozzarella and goat cheese, and spinach.

            1. favourite unusual pizza topping: white anchovies:

              favourite, completely inauthentic, non-Italian, unusual topping: tandoori chicken (deboned), drizzled with raita- served at a chain restaurant of all places. Haven't made it at home, and haven't ordered it for years, but it's still on the menu, although it's now called a flatbread instead of a pizza. Not sure if they're still using the original recipe. Might give me an excuse to step foot inside: Mind you, since the rest of your pizzas sound interesting, but still have a traditional Italian flavour profile, this type of topping might not fit with rest of your menu.

              I also like arugula on my pizza (sometimes added after baking), and mixed wild mushrooms, which I enjoy even more on non-tomato sauced pizza.

              Noticed one pizzeria in Toronto offering fiddleheads as a topping recently, but I haven't tried it out yet.
