Continuing the pizza baking/baking in general tread here, I like to bake the pizza with a really thin bottom and a crunchy crust. for toppings I like it simple with cheese and ham and tomatoes as main ingredienses.

Yes, thin crust is great. I've made pizza where the center of the crust was almost transparent as I put it in the oven. I am not a big fan of pizzas with too much of the toppings on them. It overwhelms the pizza, which should be as much about savoring the crust as it is the toppings. The toppings should be more of a condiment than a main feature.

Another thing to note is that I ALWAYS eat the crust...all of it. I don't understand those who eat the inside of the pizza and leave those great crust end pieces sitting on their plate.

Me too - and my wife's crust as well, since she's more of a topping person

I'm a great bread-lover and there's nothing like a crust that really makes sounds when you chew it.

If we have pizza leftovers, the crust becomes even better when you heat it (not in the micro) the next day.

Svein, This is a great thread! I know we have had our differences over things in the past, but this pizza thread has me wishing we were all sitting around a table with pizza and some good beer and wine, having a great time!

You are right again about not using a microwave for reheating pizza. It ruins it, making the crust tough and soggy. Plus it makes it smell bad. I always reheat my leftover pizza in the oven.

It is really a great thread, isn't it? Problem is I'm getting hungry to read about pizza, beer and wine! But you're right, I think we all could have a real great time around the table with the above mentioned factors

Okay, now I have to look in my freezer and see if I have any leftover pizza from the last time I baked them.

You're lucky - when we make pizza there's nothing left to put in the freezer

Thin crust, baked to crispy. Pepperoni cooked on the pizza until crispy around the edges. I do this by turning on the broiler for the last little bit. YUMMY

In my youth I loved pepperoni pizza, but as I grew older and learned that the crust was the thing, I found that the grease from the pepperoni got in the way of my pleasure. And so I went to non-greasy pizza toppings.

But pepperoni is still in my diet. One thing I grew up with is the "hot pepperoni sandwich". This is just sliced pepperoni, spaghetti sauce, and good hard rolls. The pepperoni and sauce is cooked a little while and then spooned onto the rolls and chomped down. Good stuff.
