Ok gang...
What's your favorite PIZZA?

We always order from this non-chain local place (and if it's closed because it's too late in the evening or Sunday - we just forget the whole idea). And we also order a small house salad, with their signature balsamic vinegrette, so famous they sell it in jars to take home.

They know us by name, and if we get delivery they always carry dog buscits.

What we almost always order, although they have a killer gourmet Greek pizza with special (not red) sauce and some great calzones, is what they call the "Italaiono."

This is pepperoni, Italian sausage, salami, red onions, green pepper, black olives, of course motzerelli, and their special sauce which they make fresh every day (and we order extra sauce every time).

SO... are you Dominoes, Pizza Hut, or Pappa Muphy people?

And can you understand why anyone would put pineapple on a pizza? :shock:[Image Can Not Be Found][Image Can Not Be Found]

You're making me hungry!  Extra sauce, diced tomatos, lots of onions, fresh garlic, roasted peppers, green olives.  And fresh grated parmesan, mozzarella and provolone on top.  Yum!  Pineapple on pizza perplexed me when I first heard about it about 30 years ago.  Still does.  White pizza with chicken and lots of garlic is good every now and again.

Local/Mom & Pop is the only way to go.  When feeling cheap and/or lazy I start with a California Pizza Kitchen Margherita Thin Crust and add my own stuff.

Local mom & pop only. No chains. Thin, hand-rolled or tossed crust w/ everything but bell peppers. My absolute favorite is Pizza Margherita: thin layer of red sauce, fresh basil and mozzerella. Divine.

I don't really do chains to be honest. We had a local pizzeria that was amazing but it's really gone down hill so we do all ours 'in house'. I've never understood pineapple on pizzas though. Grgh!

Same here Toger; I love a pure, uncorrupt margherita for its pure uncorruptnessness. Cheddar, mozzerella, tomatoes, fresh basil and oregano. Wonderful!

Failing that I like finely sliced onion and bell peppers, jalapenos, fresh basil, oregano, chorizo, a splash of lemon juice, ground black pepper and a pinch of salt. Lurvly. [Image Can Not Be Found]

Stone baked thin bases are my favourite too.

No Domino's. Not only is the place a Republican stronghold second only to Wal-Mart and the pants of Dick Cheney, but the corporate headquarters has a huge collection of illegal antiquities (or so I heard in an archaeology class back when I was in school). I live just a couple miles from Domino's Farms, their high command, but I haven't had anything tainted by them since I was in high school.

I like thin, crunchy crust with ground beast, black olives, onions, and maybe a bit of feta. I'll also not turn away bannana peppers. Pizza House in Ann Arbor is a chain of sorts, but they deliver everywhere and they do have good pizza...

I'm with ya, Steerpike, but I must say, that of the 3 "places" you mentioned I gotta think that the pants are the most scary of the 3 places to be.

I'm with Gregg. I love a sausage and jalapeno pizza with onions. Thin crust. I rarelyl eat pizza anymore but oddly enough went out for some a couple of nights ago at a local shop. There are 2 good pizza places within a block of each other near where I live. And two good mexican food hole in the walls seperated only by a coffee shop. Sometimes pizza and beer is all you need to get through the night. Yeah, no chain places. There are way too many one-offs where I live to even consider a Pizza Hut type pizza.

Mmmmm, yes, yes……! The salty! Love the black olives…. feta too, oh yeah that's glorious. I'll also take some hot peppers.

If I'm feeling a bit more generic I'm really obsessed with mushrooms. I'm also open to experimentation, like broccoli or other crazy vegetable toppings.

As for chain vs a singular place ... I'm recently relocated, so I'm still looking for a good "ma and pa" pizza place in my area!

Mmm feta... [Image Can Not Be Found]

'Banana' peppers!? *Googles it* ...blimey, never heard of them before.

How precise are everybody's pizzas here? Do you make sure that the toppings are nice and even or do you scatter shot the lot? I'm the former myself.

Homemade bases or pre-made?

Steerpike, Steerpike, Stteerpike...

Your writing is always more poetic than prose.

But... Dick's pants?

I suppose a good vomit helps clear the system.[Image Can Not Be Found]

Chorizo? sounds great!  But just how do you do it?  Cook the Chorizo first?

And... ok...

Siciian?

New York?

Chicago?

I don't know what all these are, so I'm asking for help here.

Or, of course, maybe I used to know but [Image Can Not Be Found][Image Can Not Be Found][Image Can Not Be Found]... well 48 electroshock treatments does... well wonders to the brain... and havok to the memory.[Image Can Not Be Found]

I have no idea how to make pizza. I leave that to the experts. I just order a slice out of the case and go from there.

I used to work at a Little Caesar's in high school. We had a lot of fun with the dough, because it was stretchy and would puff up to enormous proportions if left out overnight (we never fed this dough to customers, of course). And since we all had access to the dough and sauce and toppings and oven, we could create a wide variety of pizza-inspired food items.

I actually invented the Calzone, you know, but I never thought to get it trademarked.

I feel a blanket apology is necessary for the Dick Cheney's pants crack. I have clearly upset a large portion of Tap's readership! I should know that there are places no one wants to go!
