If I'm going simple, one topping only, I almost always opt for Pepperoni. If I'm going for the gusto, I'm definitely a fan of a "meat lovers" combination with olives, mushrooms, and onions!
It's amazing, I just hopped over to the forums and stumbled across your post as I was in the middle of thinking that it would be fun to take the family out to dinner tonight for Zachary's Pizza (Chicago style).
If you live in the San Francisco Bay area and you haven't been to Zachary's Pizza (Berkeley, CA / Oakland, CA / San Ramon, CA) you've got to try it!
And, no, I have absolutely no financial interest in pushing their pizza. It's just that good!
Pizza is best with a mass of toppings. Black olives, green peppers, mushrooms, extra cheese and pepperoni. The key is extra cheese to hold it all together. Dominoes has the best veggie pizza(get it on thin crust.)
The meats on pizza are generally too greasy and salty. I do like to go to the Round Table Pizza buffet where you can get a great veggie pizza, a chicken garlic pizza with red onion, red peppers and Alfredo sauce, and one I didn't think I'd like-- Canadian bacon and pineapple. They have a pretty good salad bar to go with their unlimited pizza by us a bargain that takes care of lunch and dinner, both.
Sigh... no pizza for me for a long time as I'm on the Dukan diet.
I actually think pizza without cheese is really nice, because then the other flavours are not masked. I used to love a seafood pizza that Pizza Express did years ago, which was served without cheese. It was good with an extra topping of jalapenos.
And a pizza without olives is incomplete in my view.
I like a ton of toppings on a Chicago-style deep-dish pizza. I think I would go with Pepperoni, Italian Sausage, Onions, Green Peppers, Red Peppers, Yellow Peppers, and tons of Jalapenos. Otherwise, if it were a thin crust pizza I like the Greek ones with Pesto, Spinach, Feta, Grape Tomatoes, and Kalamata Olives.
Mushrooms and extra cheese. Never meat. The crust edge has to be soft, or I won't eat the crust. Here's a pizza-slice question: Do you make sure the point is aiming toward you? (I don't, but a lot of people do.)
I usually have mine with Frutas de Mar (Fruits of the Sea) which is usually mussels, prawns, tuna and squid but I ask them to leave out the squid. I also have vegetarian pizza and pizza with mushrooms.
I spent 8 years working in a pizza place, and some of those recipes are still fresh in my brain. We made large specialty pizzas, and sold them mainly by the slice, to a very large lunch crowd of over 500 people in a...
Beef, cheese... Beef, cheese... Beef, cheese... YUM! I love pizza, but I have been holding my self from overindulging because i'm gaining extra pounds already. And although, I know, that talking about it here would...
Two nights ago, my son was craving Papa John's Pizza. I had never eaten it. I usually make my own, from scratch pizza, and it is awesome, but I said okay. He ordered, it was delivered and it tasted like cardboard,...
