Pizza Pizza

    Pizza Pizza!!

    What kinds of pizza toppings are your favourite? What is your favourite pizza place? What are the strangest pizza toppings you have tried?


    Right now I am waiting for my first ever attempt at making a pizza to finish baking. Made the dough myself with some rosemary and honey in it. It has alfredo sauce with chicken breast, diced tomatoes, mushrooms, and bellpeppers. I'll let you know how it turns out.

    The crust came out a bit odd. Kinda cake like. Otherwise very good.

    chicken on pizza? Where are you from again?
    crust-tomato-mozzarella-basil

    When I went to Chicago I ordered a pizza and the guy was going down the list of ingredients and I'd say yes or no. Stupid pizza cost me almost fifty bucks.

    Pizza is the only time I like gorgonzola cheese, then I really like it.

    I love veggie pizzas. Piled high, with tons of melted cheese right to the edge of the pizza. If the cheese goes over the edge and gets kind of crunchy, I give bonus points!

    The worse pizza I ever had was walnut, lamb and goat cheese:yuck: It smelled and tasted like old gym socks.

    My favorite place (Oregonians listen up!) is Giovanni's Mountain Pizza in Mill City, OR. Second to that is Zax in Moab, UT.

    Hey, not bad looking at all for a first attempt at making your own pizza. My first attempt was certainly much soggier. :rolleyes:

    I love pizza with mushrooms, green peppers and onions on it. I used to hate any kind of meat on my pizza, but recently have come to enjoy pepperoni, and have also discovered chicken parmesan pizza, which is to die for if you find a place that doesn't overcook the chicken and dry it out! Once in a while I get pizza around here, but usually I wait until I'm in NYC and get it there. There's a little hole-in-the-wall place in an alley near where my boyfriend works that has great pizza and since it's off in an alley, doesn't get too overcrowded at lunch time, though certainly they have steady business.

    My roomie loves pizza with everything on it, except pepperoni, and often will spend large sums just so he can get it the way he likes it.

    There's a pizza place called Round Table (I think they have them all over the US) that makes a "gourmet chicken" pizza made with creamy butter garlic sauce. I didn't have the heavy cream to make the garlic sauce so I just used some jar alfredo I had. It would have been good with some artichoke hearts too.

    Thank you Wooly. Is brit pizza like US pizza or more like Italian pizza?

    It turned outpretty well. I paid close attention to the recipe I found online. I found a tip some where that says you should brush the rolled out dough with olive oil to prevent sogginess.

    I was careful with the chicken. I cooked it in some chopped garlic and olive oil and then let it simmer in the sauce. I spread it out on the pizza with the sauce and covered it with the cheese and other toppings to keep it from getting dried out.

    I under estimated the amount of toppings necessary to cover the pizza. :-/
    The crust is really moist and tastey though. Even the leftovers I am eating for breakfast are still nice and moist.

    There is a place here that used to offer about any toppings that you wanted. I'd order 'em with crushed garlic, saurkraut, and hot sausages, with a little grated Romano over the top. Mmmm!

    Re: Pizza Pizza!!

    The best pizza that I ever had was the all dressed from Jerry Pizzeria in Lennoxville Quebec. I used to have it delivered every Saturday night. I suspect at least one other PFer has had this pizza. I'm dying for one right now.

    Re: Pizza Pizza!!

    Is this the number for that pizza place?
    I think I may be too far away for delivery.

    The Bullgoose Looney Special. Does it come with a side of rolaids?


    Does any one know why the crust I made may have turned out with a cakey texture? I used unbleached flour but I didn't think that would make a very big difference. The recipe I used called for twice as much yeast as others do since apparently the man posting it prefers yeasty bread. I don't have a roller so I just pressed and streched it by hand.

    Re: Pizza Pizza!!

    I have to make my own pizzas now (severe reactions to food additives) so I make my own sauces starting from scratch with tomatoes, chilies, spices, etc, and simmer for hours. I prefer thin-crust pizzas, and either hand-throw my own lightly-leavened dough or (if I'm pressed for time or lazy) even make them on soft flour tortillas.

    Tip: when you are simmering down home-made pizza sauce, it can get foamy on top. To suppress this, use some olive oil in each batch. The flavors of some herbs and spices are oil-soluble, so the olive oil makes the sauce taste richer, as well as reducing the foaming.

    After you let it raise, did you punch it down and let it raise a second time, then punch it down and roll it?

    Even with my lightly-leavened dough, I let it rise, punch it down, rise again, punch down again and throw it. Nice flavor, thin, and it crisps up easily. I always brown my crust first in the oven, then release any gases that might swell the crust by piercing, then spread the sauce, add cheese, toppings, and top with a little Romano and ground pepper before cooking the pizza.
