Well judging from comments in other forums pizza brings out peoples passions! So for give me for thinking we might just pull it all together in a single thread.

I like pizza, on occasion LOVE pizza. And those occasions occur when I can get an uneven shaped pizza with a thin crust baked crisp in a wood fired oven topped lightly with simple ingredients, cheese, a bit of sauce, tomatoes................and i love having spiced olive oil to dribble over it.

I love pizza. Thick, thin, deep dish, Neopolitan, Sicilian as long as it's fresh I am all over it. I love to make them many different ways but here are my favs.

Topped with blanched asparagus, proscuitto, with a mixture of pesto and ricotta.

Or with caramelized onions and garlic, tomatoes, basil and parm shavings.

Thick crust or thin, it's a wonderful food. I agree,

Erin, that there are a ton of creative and delicious variations for toppings. I am an anchovie and caramelized onion person, myself. What is the French name for this? Pallasière? But, David, do you have "Italian" tomato pizzas in Ontario with cheddar cheese on them? Or is that a BC aberration? We never accustomed ourselves to it! On the other hand, a "Mexican" variation with cheddar, black olives, some Ortega chilis and perhaps some ground meat is excellent, I think.

Judy---you just made my mouth water with one single word!Had it for the first time from a little bakery on a main street in Dijon and have never forgotten it!

Pizza with cheddar??? Your right Rainey, must be a western/Vancouver aberration. And my absolute fave is anchovy!

I love anchovys but for me they are a bit hit and miss on pizza. Right before we first moved here I was on a real garlic and pepperoni kick, sometimes with anchovys. After we moved out east we got one from our local pizzaria and it was nothing but salt. I have not been brave enough to try it again elsewhere, the memory of that sudden rise in blood pressure was enough to ensure I only get cheese pizzas from there now.

David, How do you eat pizza with anchovies?
