    Pizza is the wonderfood

    Has all the major food groups:
    Bread - check
    Veggies - check
    Meat (or not) - check
    Cheese/dairy - check
    Fruit (pineapple?) - check

    Great for any meal:
    Breakfast
    Lunch
    Dinner
    Snack

    Great at any temperature:
    Hot from the oven
    Cold from the fridge
    Room temp from overnight

    Great with any beverage:
    Beer
    Wine
    Cola (with or without Jack Daniels or Bacardi)
    Milk

    So, the question is, how do you take your pizza?


    Where do you get it?
    Pizza Hut, Dominos, Papa Johns, local pizzeria?
    Chicago style? New York style? Other?

    How do you get it?
    Eat in, take out, delivery, frozen, make it yourself?

    What do you take on it?
    Pepperoni, mushrooms, onions, black olives, anchovies, what?

    How do you like your crust?
    Thin, pan, filled with cheese, regular?


    Feel free to improvise!
    Give us your favorite take out and frozen varieties
    Let's see how you take your pizza

    BONUS POINTS: post a pic of the pizza you are eating

    Note: I have been to Goodfella's in New York, voted best pizza in the world
    I have to admit, it was pretty good :)

    Funny you should ask, as I'm having a pizza for my tea this very evening.

    You can get them to make them for you fresh at our local food emporium, so I opted for a 10" 'thin and crispy', with a choice of four toppings besides the bog standard cheese and tomato.

    I opted for pepperoni, ham, tuna and sweetcorn.

    Personally, I don't approve of the stuff cold. Chips and coffee shouldn't be consumed in such a fashion either, despite what some may tell you. Bleh.

    I could post a picture, but frankly I can't be arsed. :p

    I thought the major food groups were: caffeine, sugar, fat, tobacco and alcohol?

    Make my own (except the base). Pepperoni.

    Like to add I also enjoy any of the Safeway Deli pizzas. They are huge and taste great.

    Favorite Big Chain: Papa John's
    Favorite Pizza from there: Tuscan Cheese with no other toppings

    Favorite pizza ever: One of my dads clients opened a pizza place with his chef near Jacksonville, FL. Their St.Louis style pizza is the best. :D

    If it's not as thin as a cracker and made with provel cheese, it's not real St. Louis style ;)

    This is real St. Louis style pizza:

    If what you get looks nothing like that, you are the victim of pizza fraud :D

    No, no, no. There are four main food groups: candy, candy canes, candy corns, and syrup.

    I like Pizza Hut pizza, thin crust, meat lovers.

    One of my favorite foods!

    Make my own including the crust from scratch. But I'll eat commercial pizzas too. Usually local places that aren't national chains. In a pinch frozen will do . . . such as Wolfgang Puck baked directly on the rack.

    Only thing is I don't like cold pizza.

    Aw man, I go through phases with the stuff. I'm out of one now but yea, the stuffs good.
    In a phase I'd have Chicagotown thingy pizza (no idea what they're called, but they're deep, small and done in the oven in 9 minutes) for lunch.
    The granddaddy of them all (for me!) are Asda pizzas. Plain bread, plain crust, chicken, bacon, cheese, tomatoes, sweetcorn, sometimes chipolatas. A 14" one of them and I'm done.

    Also: home made pizza dough baked naked. Garlic butter. The best garlic bread possible.

    I just like thin crust vege lovers from Pizza Hut. No, I'm not really a boring person once you get to know me. ;)

    I had pizza for brunch this morning, since I didn't get up early enough to have it for breakfast. I would post a pic, but I ate it already so it wouldn't be pretty.

    My favorite chain is Papa John's, but I haven't had any from there in years. I had some at a pizzeria in NYC once (don't remember the name of the place), but watching the grease drip off it turned my stomach. It tasted amazing, but I couldn't eat much of it. Just plain with plenty of oregano and Parmesan cheese.

    One thing pizza doesn't go with, imho, is coffee.

    I like it cold, too. Really, I like it any temperature, except blistering. :)

    I'm with you on the breakfast part. But not the cold part.

    EDIT: yg17, that pizza looks really good. I'm starving . . . can't wait for brunch.

    Favorite chain: Round Table.

    Fave frozen pizza: Stouffer's French Bread pizzas. Nom Nom Nom.

    OK, straighten me out on these "city" styles:

    New York: Big slices with flexible crust that you can fold over and stuff in your mouth.

    St. Louis: Thin, crispy crust.

    Chicago: Deep dish, practically have to eat it with a knife and fork. Now is this style round or is this that rectangular style I see every so often?

    Fave topping: pepperoni.

    Actually, almost any pizza is worth my time. Pizza is like sex -- even when it's not great, it's still really good!

    I forgot what cheeses he uses in it, but it does look like that. That is due to my dads client and the chef is from St.Louis. So they know what a St. Louis style pizza is. :)

    In Chicago, it's usually round.

    Right now, Neapolitan pizza or similar. Here in Grand Rapids I like this bakery a few blocks from my house. OTOH I do buy frozen pizza not infrequently, maybe once every 1-2 weeks, mostly in an effort to eat out less.

    I do like Chicago style pizza, particularly spinach pizzas. My fave place for that is in Hyde Park, but I haven't gotten it since last summer.

    sweetcorn on a pizza ... that's no better than the germans with their "pizza hawai" topped off with pineapple

    and obviously thin crispy crust is the way to go ..

    Homemade pizza is the best.

    Thick-ish crust
    spicy tomato sauce
    ham, pepperoni, mushrooms, finely chopped bird's eye chilies, jalapeños
    mature cheese and a dusting of chili powder

    That's a pizza whose spicy experience you will enjoy twice, once from each end of the gastro-intestinal system. :D

    You must have stronger intestines than me. I would definitely feel that one the next day.
