Favorite Topping! - Tue, 01/19/10 4:17 PM
0


My thoughts. I really like Canadian Bacon and onions.

Pepperoni gets a bit much at times, but generally I like it.
I don't like broccoli on pizza.

Cauliflower is good as well as egg plant.

(I learned about eggplant from an old barber. He told me the story of his
mother making pizza before there were pizza shops, and all the kids liked to come over to eat pizza.
Well he told me eggplant was one of the best ingredients on pizza.)

I did have eggplant as one ingredient in Brooklyn. 

I kinda like whole tomato slices or even dried tomatoes.

I got to have onions.

I don't like too much cheese, but I do like it stringy.

Got to have plenty of sauce on my pizza.

I normally do not like toppings on my pizzas but when I do get them they are generally mushrooms or anchovies.

Have to agree there, plus oregano and hot pepper...

I don't like anchovies, and anything else is fine.  For me, the sauce is very important, be it a red sauce or a white sauce.  I would say my favorite toppings are:
 
eggplant (hard to get on a pie here unless you make it yourself)
sausage
onions
mushrooms
green pepper
lots of spices and not so much salt
fresh garlic
pineapple
canadian bacon

My local Chinese restaurant won't even sell dishes with eggplant anymore even though they leave it on their menu - they say it is too expensive and not many folks want it.  Most pizzerias do not offer it in SW Ohio either from what I have seen.

Eggplant is a fairly common topping here in the Northeast, specifically in the NYC area. Here in RI Linguica and Chourice are popular toppings.
What you won't find around here  is Pierogi Pizza , I only saw that in the Pittsburgh area.

roflmao!!  pierogi pizza?????  omg!  that's just too much!!  :)

as much as i love pierogi, i wouldn't want them on a pizza.  in fact, was quite offended  (as a kid) when my dad decided to put tomato sauce on the pierogi's we were having for dinner.  pierogi needs sour cream, not tomato sauce,  imho!

anyhoo, on to fav pizza toppings.

a GOOD pepperoni is always welcome.  the one place around here that i really like uses the large diameter sandwich style pepperoni - which is usually a much better quality (and less greasy) than the usual small diameter types.  and they make sure to have the best quality brand, so, that's always a pleasure to eat.

a decent sausage is actually what i'd prefer (hard to find places that use good quality sausage for their pies, tho).  add some spinach and you've got a winner, in my book.

ham and pineapple is a good combo; or ham and green pepper. 

gotta have a good, rich sauce with decent spices and there's got to be enough of it.

provolone cheese is preferred.

Just some grated Parmigiano Reggiano on some diced (peeled and seeded) plum tomatoes, garlic, olive oil and oregano.

Take the oregano off and replace it with  chopped  fresh basil  and that would  be my  favorite.

I confess I am NOT a chronic pizza fan. (I know, heresy!) I get a craving for a "typical" pizza (tomato sauce, assorted meats w/ shrooms, garlic & peppers) about twice a year. That classic aside, there was a place here in DullAss years ago that offered a combination that I LOVED: white sauce, goat cheese, spinach & grilled chicken. They folded; I still crave that pizza! Thin crust ALWAYS on ANY pizza.

A good quality Italian sausage, with peppers, and mushrooms would be my favorite.

strangely enough, if I'm making one at home, and in a hurry, sometimes I often prefer a canned mushroom; less watery.  Blasphemy, I know.  If I have good quality fresh ones, I usually saute them first in some olive oil before using, to get the extra water out.

Pretty standard - Xtra cheese  - half with pepperoni and half with mushrooms.

Suasage. Sometimes sausage, mushrooms and green peppers. My wife like onions so sometimes we'll get half onions. I like onions if they're sliced real thin and get crispy but many places put the onions on in hunks that are too thick for my liking.

For me it's Fresh mozzarella and basil with crushed ripe tomatoes. A few dried herbs like oregano and flat leaf parsley,  a dash of garlic, and maybe a sprinkle of fresh parm.

Fresh Mushrooms as canned ones are too soggy I like them to dry out on the pizza.
Good quality pepperoni that curls up with a pool of grease in the middle.
Still want to know how chains cut pepperoni so thin!
Fresh Jalapeno slices or diced. Not Pickled
Anchovies
Whole roasted Garlic
Fresh Basil at the end
I also add Chinese Five Spice to cheese pizza when I reheat it at home.

I rarely have more than two toppings on a pizza...Russ

And now for something completely different:

http://www.pizza.co.th/1112/frame.php?page=pizza
then click the Click here for picture button

one of my fave's is tom yam kung, not for the weak of heart when it comes to chili!

btw, this is real seafood, not that imitation frozen crap, but the taste is not too most western pallets.  

My fave is sausage, only from the S. Wisc. area, along with local S. Wisc mozz, saut├ęd onions and pepperoni from my friends shop in Monroe, Wisc.  The sauce is a simple marinara on a thin crust.  Now going the extra step the crust is first par baked on one side on an open grill, then flipped topped on the baked side and put on indirect heat  covered on the same grill set at high temp.  Crust is cracker like with hints of smoke and open flame, along with the cheese absorbing those smoky flavors...nothing like it.

I'm from New Haven. It has to have oregano. But adding basil is fine, too.

Pierogies are not actually placed on the Pizza.
Pierogi pizza is basically Pizza dough  dripping with melted butter, sauteed onions, mashed potatos and american or provolone/mozarella mix cheese.

I don't think I really have a favorite per se but I probably get some form of pepperoni and mushroom the majority of the time.  I also like both black and green olives although sometimes using both can make the end result a bit salty; black olives and mushrooms make for a meatless pizza I like.

Hmmm...didn't bring a lunch today and pizza's sounding good!

believe it or not, there are plenty of Pizza's out there without tomato sauce.
Personally I think  tomato sauce in this case is absolutely gross, but hey, that's only my opinion.

My Italian mom made Pizza both ways and I loved both, especially her spinach pizza(neopolitan) no sauce.Italians make that great potato pizza I talked about above,.....all of that when America only new regular sauce pizza.......no abomination....just what you like,,it IS an Italian tradition. By the way Pizza Pie is redundant...Pizza means "Pie" in Italian...Pizza Pomodoro is "tomato pie" that americans simply shortened. I've seen some crazy combos on Italian pies...poached eggs...hard boiled eggs...4 kinds of mushrooms all kinds of vegetables...anything goes....ask for a pizza Capricosa(Spelling???) which is a house pizza with the works!!!!!

I guess it was because my momma was Polish and did not make pizzas at home - I can see my upbringing left an awful lot to be desired in terms of my overall appreciation of pizzas - I will go to my grave sorely lacking in pizza imagination sadly.

oh, i got it that it wasn't actual pierogi on the pizza - just the fillings that are normally in them!!!

as for tomato sauce - for me that's a BIG no as a topping for pierogi.  grew up using sour cream and to me, that's just the 'slavic' way to eat them. 

tomato sauce is basically 'italian' - so, that goes on ravioli (or any pasta).  i'd never consider using sour cream on ravioli as that wouldn't be the 'italian' way to do it. 

although, galumbki do have tomato sauce...so, i guess tomato sauce isn't entirely 'italian'.  putting it on pierogi just didn't interest ME at all!

i'm okay with white pizza's - have never really had a 'fantastic' one though.  the lack of the tomato sauce is what gets me, i guess. i really do love a good marinara!! and make my own (with a decent amount of garlic in it...lol, read that as a ton of it!) the white pies that i've had also didn't have enough cheese on them.

i was up in new england once for a vacation - did a lot of driving around and visited more than a few states to see the sites.  got sidetracked/lost and ended up in new hampshire - stopped to get directions and to eat.  that was one of the best pizza's i've had.  that was a 'regular' style pie - tomato sauce, mozz, pepperoni.  excellent crust - not to thick; not too thin and just chewy enough on the inside while being crusty on the outside.

Did you ask where the owner learned how to make pizzas?

I believe tomatoes and sauces from them originated in Peru with the Aztecs.

I have always been of the opinion that a good pizza is made with the right amount of cheese..and sauce..if not the pizza maker is cheating you..

oh, i got it that it wasn't actual pierogi on the pizza - just the fillings that are normally in them!!!

as for tomato sauce - for me that's a BIG no as a topping for pierogi.  grew up using sour cream and to me, that's just the 'slavic' way to eat them. 

tomato sauce is basically 'italian' - so, that goes on ravioli (or any pasta).  i'd never consider using sour cream on ravioli as that wouldn't be the 'italian' way to do it. 

although, galumbki do have tomato sauce...so, i guess tomato sauce isn't entirely 'italian'.  putting it on pierogi just didn't interest ME at all!

i'm okay with white pizza's - have never really had a 'fantastic' one though.  the lack of the tomato sauce is what gets me, i guess. i really do love a good marinara!! and make my own (with a decent amount of garlic in it...lol, read that as a ton of it!) the white pies that i've had also didn't have enough cheese on them.

i was up in new england once for a vacation - did a lot of driving around and visited more than a few states to see the sites.  got sidetracked/lost and ended up in new hampshire - stopped to get directions and to eat.  that was one of the best pizza's i've had.  that was a 'regular' style pie - tomato sauce, mozz, pepperoni.  excellent crust - not to thick; not too thin and just chewy enough on the inside while being crusty on the outside.


Did you ask where the owner learned how to make pizzas?

I believe tomatoes and sauces from them originated in Peru with the Aztecs.


There were no Aztecs in Peru.

I meant to say tomatoes are thought to have originated in Peru and were "discovered"  being harvested by Aztecs in Central America by European explorers and brought back to and introduced into Europe by early explorers and conquerors:

I didn't want to take this thread off on a tangent with too much info but I should have been more clear - I will try do better in the future!

But heck, what do they know about apizza in New Haven?

 
Not much if my experience is typical. Drove from Chicago to New Haven just to get a pizza. Went to Sally's and had a pizza inferior to Domino's----limp crust and sausuage and sauce that was bland and flavorless. The Sbarro's pizza we had at a rest stop on the Ohio Turnpike was better.
 
Big disappointment; those New Haven pizzas look so good in photos. Our's looked great too, then we started in on it, uh-oh.

I've never been to Sallys, but really enjoyed Pepe's the two times I visited, although frankly, even I wouldn't drive all the way to New Haven just to get a Pizza and I'm only 90 miles away in Rhode Island. Certainly a stop on a day trip to the area or passing through is well worth it.

I have found the Sbarro's on the turnpikes are generally much better than the ones you find in the malls - there is really no comparison.

Well I've been known to drive all the way to Long Beach Mississippi to get a shrimp sandwich at the Cajun Crawfish Hut. :) And you can eat at Lambert's, the throwed rolls place, on the way down.

You wouldn't drive 90 miles just to get a pizza?

When you live in the hinterlands of Ohio and you are from NY and have been away from there for what seems like a lifetime  you would do it in a heartbeat for a good pizza pie!

Well you're just too cool for school.
 
I enjoyed the rib-eye steak and the sides too.  And the throwed rolls which were fresh and tasty.

That's really funny -- in a sick sort of deep-dish way.

The toppings don't matter much to me, other than I can't tolerate seafood so no anchovies, or shrimp, or clams, etc. What matters more is the overall taste and texture. I'll eat a great cheese slice, or a great loaded. I'll eat it deep dish, or thin crust, or fold-it crust. I'll eat Sicilian. I'll eat white, or Old Forge style, or Old World style. I'll eat pagache (potato pizza). I'll eat pitza, I'll eat apizza. But fergoodnesssake, do it right. Concentrate on quality, and get your ingredients to work together. And don't mistake quantity for quality; it's great that you can feed 4 people for $15, but if the pie sucks what's the point?

Last winter, I ate at Lambert's in Sikeston MO... never again. "Tourist trap" is the perfect description of that place with its mediocre, overpriced food, not to mention the lady on the keyboard and the guy announcing customer's birthdays over the P.A. system. What a joke! I couldn't get out of there fast enough.

Generally I like enough or maybe a lot of red sauce. I don't like pizza with a solid
top. It should slide around a bit. I was looking at pizza pictures. I would say just by looking
at many, I would not like to try. Here is a picture of one of my favorites in northeastern Ohio, Capo's,

The pizza in the picture was sold by the slice. They have it done right, they slightly precook
a pizza and set it aside until its needed.When you order they take a slice and do the final cook.
Its going to burn your mouth, but its the only way to serve pizza fresh.

My favorite topping is pepperoni or sausage...can't decide between the two.  I also like mushrooms, olives, extra cheese, and chicken as toppings.  I like getting chicken pizzas like the Mexican Pizza from Z Pizza or the BBQ Chicken Pizza from a variety of places.
