What Do You Like On Your Pizza?

Fri Oct 29, 2004 1:32 pm

I've gotten a real knack for homemade pizza as of late... dare say I've perfected my crust and sauce.


image utilized with written permission



...so tell me, what toppings do you like on your pizza? I'd like some new ideas.



If you would: separate the categories between "Veggie", "Meat & Cheese", or "Desert" pizzas.

Thanks!  Big thumbs up

for me? mostly meat and cheeze. Basicly my idea of a good pizza is to pile on the meat as if the worlds about to end, then cover it in vast ammounts of cheeze. Im hungry now.

Well for starters the base has to be nice and thin, nothing gives me the shits more than when you pay $15 bucks for a pizza and half of it is dough, the base has to be crisp and not sloppy and soggy.
A generous amount of tomato paste is mandatory and so too is a bottom thin layer of mozzarella. Then pile on the chicken pieces followed by lots of pinapple and capsicum then dump on some more mozzarella. pour on a nice amount of satay sauce then chuck it in the woodfire oven for 4 minutes and there ya go.. the best pizza EVER!

I'll go for the Hawaiian style here too.
That one is too damn good! It's not filled with a lot of extra stuff. It's simple with Ham, Cheese, tomato sauce, pineapple and bacon.  Big thumbs up

The only extra that I demand on my pizza is always mooooore cheese Big grin

Pizza's always best "as it comes" - Just sauce, cheese and herbs for me.

My dessert pizzas include:


CHOCOLATE:
Consisting of toasted chocolate-tortilla for crust, sweetened whipped cream (or chocolate mousse) instead of tomato sauce, and three or four different types of sweet/semi-sweet chocolate bits on top. Baked. Striped with chocolate syrup before serving.


PINEAPPLE:
an old standard. Also works well using strawberries, mango, and/or kiwi

APPLE:
ditto pineapple

I prefer the simple onions (preferably sweets like Maui or Vidalia), olives (calamattas are nice), mushrooms, extra Cheddar cheese, with not much tomato sauce. That's a perfect one for me. If I want some meat in it, a little finely diced pepperoni will do.

Mexicana all the way, baby!

Pepperoni, Onions, Jalapeno Peppers, Fresh Chilli, and Garlic for fun.

The hotter the better. Love 'em!

Gourmet, I like Tandoori Chicken. Chicken cooked in the tandoor, herbs & spices, onion, tomato, guacamole, cream.

Crust wise - neither too thick nor too thin.  Smile

I almost always have kebab on my pizzas, extremely good IMO.

For ex: Tomato sauce, cheese, thin slices of kebab, piri-piri, green pepperoni and a nice medium hot sauce.

That's how one of the pizzas at my local place looks like, have probably eaten it 50 times in a row. My favorite. Big grin

I'm sorry, no. Peppers on pizza are also an ungodly abomination, and an affront to the morals of decent hard-working Americans everywhere. This type of debauched liberal fad has to be stopped ! It devalues the concept of pizza as a holy union between tomato and cheese, which has been the basis for our fast food industry since this nation was founded.

No no - you are deliberately misinterpretalisating my words ! Tomatoes may appear on pizza ONLY as part of the sauce. Whole tomatoes on top of the pizza skirt dangerously close to actual communism, and cannot be permitted.

Generally I like plain 'ole pepperoni on my pizza and lots of it. But when I'm in the mood for specialty, I'll get a Ragin' Cajun from the Village Idiot (NYC style pizza pub here in Columbia) - Blackened chicken, onions, jalapenos, tomatoes.

Other interesting combos that I've had

A veggie pizza with roma tomatoes, artichoke hearts, broccoli, mushrooms, banana peppers, roasted garlic.

A chicken teriyaki pizza (teriyaki sauce rather than tomato sauce, grilled teriyaki chicken, red onions, scallions, water chestnuts, mixed bell peppers)

Interesting RECIPES I've seen (but cannot eat due to food allergies)

Shrimp Pesto pizza (basil pesto, shrimp, roma tomatoes, kalamata olives, artichoke hearts, mozzarella cheese and goat cheese)

Smoked salmon pizza (smoked salmon, capers, roasted red peppers, red onions, roasted garlic, smoked gouda and mozzarella cheese.)

Plain cheese does me fine. I don't like much sauce, so basically a slice from Rays on 45th and 7th...

Meatball pizza is also real good.

My favorite is a white pizza: no tomato sauce, but shrimp and broccoli tossed in a bit of alfredo, with basil and parsley, plus a good amount of cracked black pepper. Any white cheese on top, so it's more like a pie (I always put the cheese on last, so the "toppings" are in the middle).

Another non-tomato based pizza is ground beef sauteed with Thai ginger sauce with mushrooms (quartered, not cross sectioned) and onions (narrow crescent moon shapes).

As for tomato-based, I like spinach, feta, and black olives. Oh, and garlic is like crust-you can't have pizza without it.

Sorry, JGPH. This is one of those gourmet places, so no delivery scooter in sight. A more effective thing would be to curse the servers/hostesses with visible panty lines for the rest of their lives so as to put a monkeywrench in the restaurant's whole "all-black clad waitresses in skintight black pants" deal.

I offer for further purview, the offending restaurant's website.
