What style of pizza and crust do you prefer?

What style of pizza and crust do you prefer?
This is not a question about pizza toppings, see another pizza thread for that.   :)


Do you like deep dish, Chicago style; thin crust, New York style; thick crust, traditional flour crust, cauliflower crust, cheese used as the pizza crust, or ...   ?

I seem to like them all but have not eaten cauliflower crust pizza or cheese used as the crust pizza.  I would like to try those.  Yes, I have had some lousy pizza but have had a lot of good ones!

I do not like it when there are big “bubbles” in the crust, that does not make for an enjoyable slice of pizza, as the sauce and cheese and toppings are often pushed away by the bubble in the crust as the pizza cooks.

Be a good example of good behavior.  Always be kinder than needed.  Be tender to others.  You are as beautiful as the thoughts you think and the words that you speak.   Always stay cheerful, be polite, kind, and understanding.  Knowledge and action shown without love is not impressive.  If you look for the good in people you will find it. Healthy relationships are so important to good living.  Serve others.

Good living, joy, unity, love, and happiness can come from following these practices: Never let selfishness or conceit motivate you.  Regard others as more important than yourself.  Do not limit attention to only your interests, but include the interests of others

It is not usually about how fast you transition, it is about how well you transition.

What is the most unusual pizza topping that you have seen, or perhaps actually eaten that kind of pizza?

The chicken alfredo pizza is the most unusual one that I have seen on a menu.  Although I enjoy good chicken alfredo pasta, I am not inclined to order a chicken alfredo pizza.

I'm not really open to trying the chicken alfredo pizza.
I did not like the Philly Cheese Steak.

I have also heard of spinach pizza, squash pizza, and other perhaps more unusual varieties of what I would call veggie pizza.

I supoose though any pizza with just cheese and no meats would be a veggie pizza. So some veggie pizzas would not be that unusual and are likely ordered often.

To be an outlier here, I have to say hat no pizza is the best pizza for me.  I eat pizza if i cannot avoid it, but i never ever would get the idea, to buy one, not even a little wedge of it!

The pizza in Italy is pretty OK, not like the US version, that is a greasy topping over loaden contraption covered with large amounts of low quality cheese, and in Wisconsin it was common o have the Wisconsin tyle with extra extra cheese.  The fat was just dripping down from it!

Dominos has a Spinach & Feta with onion, provolone cheese, spinach, feta cheese, and parmesan Asiago.

I always have to add black olives.

Cauliflower crust in my experience ends up making pizza that needs to be eaten with a fork.  It still tastes good, but it's not a direct replacement in my opinion.

I did try out some crust that was mostly mozzarella cheese mixed with egg and psyllium husk.  That worked pretty well for a pizza that you could eat like a regular one, just with nearly no carbohydrates.  It tastes really good, but does take a bit more prep than a regular crust.  Great if you're going for the low carb thing, pretty high in calories though.

I like a regular hand tossed crust.  (or rolled in my case since I never could figure out the whole tossing thing)  I'm not a huge fan of the crispy thin crusts.  I do on occasion like to have the monument to decadence and excess that is a Chicago deep dish.

"The Thanksgiving" at EZ Pie in Braintree MA. It has smoked turkey kebabs, stuffing, gravy, corn, cheese, and a cranberry drizzle on top. Not something that I'd get every time, but a unique, interesting pizza for sure.

Yes, it is a one of a kind!

Actual pizza from Italy is a lot better then the pizza from the states. The closest I have found from the chains over here is Papa Johns Thin Crust. Now if I can find a decent mom and pop Italian food restaurant I would be a regular.

The Italian pizza is all you get in Europe.  Any European who eats their first piece of American pizza almost feels like throwing up because of how greasy it is!  I still dislike the US version after more than 40 years living here.
I think some things will never change (like disliking the American bread, the square soft stuff; or the screaming yellow mustard).

I'm actually a deep-dish fan,  though these are almost impossible to find in the UK. I had an epic pizza from Unos last year in Boston MA which was lush! I'm certain a Chicago style pizza place in London would be a big hit.

You guys on the island must have a different set of taste buts than the people on the mainland.  Whoever I talk with, can't stand the thick and heavy crut of the US style pizza, most find the crust to thick, and the toppings to greasy.

I am not a big pizza fan to start with, but I also prefer the Italian style.
