Favorite Pizza Combos Mon, 11/8/04 10:03 PM (permalink)
My husband has just finished our outdoor wood burning pizza oven in time for my birthday party. We are going to have a pizza party...and I want to make sure I have all of the favorite offerings to make everyones favorite pizza. What should I have on hand? What are your favorite pizzas?

    I get bacon and onion on 90% of the pies that I order.
    Love the combination.

      Lets not forget Ham and Pineapple, and maybe toss some Bannana Peppers on it also!

        Thin crust, regular cheese and tomato sauce, then add spinach, chopped or thin sliced tomato, and some feta cheese.

                        I have found that the saying "less is more" really seems to fit with pizza. For years I always went for the "combo" styles; sausage, pepperoni, onions, peppers, mushroom, olives etc etc. I've learned that a simple pepperoni pizza or sausage with onions is more satisfying, more intrinsically flavorful, and just better. I like all the pizzas suggested in this thread, except anchovies (I love them, just not on pizza) and the ham/pineapple combination (I've never liked the idea of fruit on a pizza), although I know many people who love these styles.

                          Well, this may not be the best combo, but possibly most interesting. We went on group lunch recently at work, about 15 of us, to "California style" pizza place where they offer about every topping humanly possible. One guy who was with us is one of those people who, as a kid, was the one in the cafeteria line who ate pats of butter or ate mustard packets for nickels just to rank people out. SO....the lunch special was any pizza with three toppings and drink for something like $6.50. The guy said he would eat just about anything - so I dared him that if I picked his toppings and he ate it, I'd buy. Of course, he accepted.

                          Looking at the menu, I found a truly vile trio....goat cheese, sauerkraut and mandarin oranges. He accepted the challenge. You should have seen face on waitress when he ordered. BUT....he ate the whole thing and claimed that the ingredients worked quite well in a sweet and sour kind of way. Yes, I paid, but it was worth it to see what a human can endure for the sake of food.

                                I am the husband of Chef Susan and builder of the oven. It is a retained heat wood oven for bread baking/pizza making or anything else you want to do. I built by following plans in the book "The Bread Builders" by Daniel Wing & Alan Scott. I started it at the end of july and just finished it a couple of days ago. To see more info on this type of oven you can go to Alan Scott's website www.ovencrafters.net Anybody who is into builing things can do it. Very rewarding to build and then cook in.

                                    Enough fresh mushrooms so you can no longer see the crust, sauce, or cheese! And then add more!

                                    That oven sounds way cool...I'm going to have to investigate those plans.

                                        Well, we have already roasted chicken and veggies. But the best thing was a pork shoulder that was seasoned with Tony Chachere's Creole Seasoning. We roasted it for about 2 hours in a cast iron roasting pan, then for the last 45 minutes i added some fingerling potatoes(split in half) to the bottom of the pan. The sweet/smoky taste of slow roasted pork with a slightly spicy crust and potatoes cooked in the accumulated fat...WOW.

                                            Hey, tell us more about your oven!
                                            I am the husband of Chef Susan and builder of the oven. It is a retained heat wood oven for bread baking/pizza making or anything else you want to do. I built by following plans in the book "The Bread Builders" by Daniel Wing & Alan Scott. I started it at the end of july and just finished it a couple of days ago. To see more info on this type of oven you can go to Alan Scott's website www.ovencrafters.net Anybody who is into builing things can do it. Very rewarding to build and then cook in.


                                            Thats pretty sharp there! But if I was to build something out of brick... Well, if you ever watched Green Acres and seen the Douglas's bedroom fireplace, thats what my end product would probably look like.

                                              I'm pretty basic when it comes to pizza. I'm a pepperoni and italian sausage guy. I'mnot opposed to other toppings I justtend to stick to the basics where pizza is concerned.

                                                I'm a pepperoni and sausage only pizza guy. I also prefer very thin crust. I sprinkle some red pepper flakes and parmesan on the pie at the table.

                                                I used to get the 'combo' too, but don't like them any more. Too much combo and not enough of the basic pizza ingredients - crust, sauce, cheese.

                                                      I agree, "cedwin". Nowadays I usually only order one topping when it comes to pizza--either pepperoni or sausage. Sometimes extra cheese if the situation is right.

                                                        Sweet Italian sausage and canned mushrooms. I am not a fan of the way fresh mushrooms cook up on a pizza. I seldom get what I want, because my wife likes the special, and the kids prefer plain.

                                                          My favorite combo is saukerkraut, goat cheese, and lots of mandarin oranges!
