try different sauces.
A BBQ sauce. A tomato sauce. An alfredo sauce.

Different meats.
pepperoni, sausage, BBQ pork

Veggies.
olives, mushrooms, peppers, onions (caramelized is a good choice too), pineapple (not a fan but it seems to be popular)

Yum, dessert pizzas. Brush melted butter on rolled out dough with cinnamon and sugar. or do cinnamon and fresh peaches, like a hand held peach pie.

Go to some pizza websites and borrow their ideas, just make a better product.

Regular days when I have to share with children: standard sauce, black olives and extra cheese.

Little swaths of time in which I am the Queen of the Galaxy and there are no munchkins around or I have time to make individual pizzas for everyone: “Alfredo” for the sauce, with marinated artichoke hearts, feta, onions and kalamata olives, sprinkled with fresh basil and oregano topped with Mozzarella and provolone.

I like my pies simple - thin, crispy crust that allows a "NY fold", a simple topping such as oilve oil, mozz, basil, maybe some tomato sauce - a Margherita pizza is just about perfect. Every now and then a topping with some sauce, light mozz, and a light scattering of pepperoni or sausage.

I love making pulled Duck with Cranberry Wensleydale Crumbles and Caremelized Red Onions for staff meal on occasions.

My favorite combination of toppings is sausage olive and mushroom. Or drop the sausage and add some onions, and roasted peppers. Mushrooms and onions should be pre-cooked.

Alfredo sauce with spinach, chicken, sundried tomatoes, onions.

Tomato sauce with italian sausage, mushrooms, green olives, onions.

Roast red pepper and tomato sauce with artichokes, mushrooms, tomatoes, onions.

All with buffalo mozzarella and a little extra virgin over the crust. I also like doing a mix of mozzarella, cheddar, and swiss for an all cheese pizza.

When I'm meat-minded, I love sausage and pepperoni with onions and ripe black olives.

When I want vegetarian, I like tomato sauce with fresh mozzarella, sauteed button mushrooms and kalamata olives. Rarely, I may add a few anchovies.

I like a medium-thin, crispy crust.

I've never tasted New York pizza in New York. It's on my list! :lips:

I realize that I missed the weekend here, but my current favorite pizza is sliced meatballs with dollops of herbed ricotta on a layer of mozz.

My favorite pizza is with just a touch of olive oil, zucchini, plum tomatoes and a little bit of roasted garlic.

It may sound odd, but chicken hearts (sauteed in bacon grease for extra flavor) are really good on pizza.
I picked this up when I was living in brasil, where there are these great pizza places that are "rodizio" style... the servers walk around with various pizzas, offering them to each table; if one sounds good, you just accept a slice, enjoy, and wait for the next one that catches your fancy.

Thin or thinnish crust: (1) Clams and garlic (available almost nowhere, a real DIY pizza); and (2) anchovy, jalapeño and onion. I know, those two sound horrible to a person with even a vestige of good taste. But what are you going to do?

Thick crust: Sausage, mushroom, olive.

At least there's one other that like jalapenos on their pie...

Add in some ground beef, italian sausage and mushrooms on a thin crust, and I'm happy...

Pepperoni, sausage, canadien bacon, with olives (black and green), green pepper, onion, mushrooms, mozz, cheddar. Think that was the Pizza Inn special when I was a kid :smiles: I still make that occasionally on a super thin cracker crust.

Hard to say which style is my most favorite. Top contenders are a thin crust with minimal sauce, a nice mix of cheeses and some anchovies baked in, with fresh tomato slices put on after it comes out of the oven but before it hits the plate, with some crushed red pepper sprinkled over it. Or a simple pepperoni version.

Thicker, more bread-like crusts I like mushrooms, black olives, extra garlic, anchovies again, maybe sausage, maybe not, and oregano.

There's a place here in Salt Lake, Wasatch Pizza, that offers 'designer' pizzas, like pies with smoked salmon, capers, pinenuts, or maybe artichoke hearts, grilled chicken with a creamy white alfredo type sauce. They've been good the times I've had them, but I tend to prefer more traditional, classic combinations.


When the weather cools down in a month or two and I can stand to have a rocket-hot oven heating up the kitchen, I have GOT to try making my own.

Meat is the answer

I would have to say that meat i prefer a very thin smoked ham
on my pizza along with some good cheese and fresh mushrooms.

Thin or thick crust, depends on my mood..minimal cheese, chicken, artichokes, spinach....
post #23 of 27
First would be Italian Sausage, Cheese and sauce.....a Chicago classic!
Second would be Cheese Italian sausage, mush, onion and green pepper. A Chicago special.

And as far as gourmet or alternative styles go there are three....

Italian Sausage, mushroom and gorgonzola, a Buca di Beppo Specialty pizza called Pizza Arrabiatta; Spicy sausage, pepperoni, Hot chilie oil, mushrooms, gorgonzola, provolone Picante, romano & mozz cheeses and lastly a Porcini mushroom, basil, spinach, sundried tomatoes and reggianno
