Heretics. Cretins. Hipsters.

Best pizza:
tomato sauce, mozz, bacon, sprinkle of oregano.

Second-best pizza:
thin slices of tomato, thin slices of buffalo mozz, fresh basil, drizzled olive oil.

Accept no substitutes or pretenders.

Ham/bacon/capocollo, jalapeno & pineapple.

Yeah, I'm one of those people.

Cheese and green peppers and (sometimes) mushrooms, tomato sauce, extra thick crust.

The Wood-Roasted Veggie at Brixx is amazing:
Wild mushrooms, broccoli, onions, peppers, oregano, mozz.

The Sweet Carolina and Sticks and Stones is amazing, too:
Tomato sauce, cane creek farm all natural sweet italian sausage, wood roasted chilies, spinach, mozzarella, fresh ricotta, parmesan.

I'm down for almost any type of pizza, though. My favorite to get when I'm ordering from a chain is pepperoni and pineapple. Suck it, anyone who thinks pineapple doesn't belong on a pizza.

I like a classic combination without the weird sausage.  Not from a chain though.  There is a place called Fat dog pizza that is really good here.

The Dredge:
Jalepeno Cheddar Kelbasa sliced thin
sauerkraut
onions
tangy mustard sauce base

It was in the town I went to college at a single bar, and it's still the tastiest pizza I've had.

Nah, I mean I like NY pizza too. It's just it's own thing. Joe's Pizza in the East Village is the fuckin' shit. E 14th and 3rd Ave. Simple NY slices, and if you don't know what you want, the guys literally say 'whaddya want' over and over again rapidly until they skip you and go to the next person. I love NYC.

I have a running theory that people (or Americans at least) imprint on a particular pizza while growing up and, to them, that pizza is always and forever the best pizza.

I'm lucky enough that the pizza place that was my imprint is still in business and hasn't changed their style/recipe much.  I stop by for a slice on my way home just about every time I travel to visit my parents.

Local friends of mine have imprinted on a local pizza chain that I think is terrible.  I've long since stopped trying to argue about it, though.  They still love it to death.

That said, bacon, pineapple, and onion is my favorite toppings trio.

I'll throw my pizza hat in the ring. Medium crust: pepperoni on the bottom, layer of fresh mushrooms and peppers. Extra cheese on the top. Simple and delicious.

If the pizza is high quality, the tomato, cheese, dough, and maybe a little basil are all that's needed. Anything else will just detract and is a cover-up. Stuff like pineapple, nuts (?!) and whatnot is heresy. Deep dish is a high crime.

Square pizza makes me bleh. I can only eat the corner pieces.

Also, that looks like lasagna and I'd rather have lasagna any day.

First pizza I ever had was when I was 19, stationed at Great Lakes, and went into Chicago for pizza.  Holy cow.

I've never found any pizza as good as that was, that night.

Deep dish pies are delicious, but they aren't what I think of when someone says "let's get pizza." I consider deep dish to be more of a "bread product" than a pizza.

Also - just adding props for Sicilian pizza, which is sort of what deep dish seems to be trying to emulate (but can't, because Sicilian pizza dough is a whole nother recipe)

The first time I was confronted with a deep dish pizza I was.. surprised. You pretty much literally need a knife and fork. Not bad, but... eh. Now the pizza I grew up with, you just dab the grease with a napkin, fold and go.

And Solera, your pizza sounds awesome. I wish I could try something like that. Though at first I was like.. "Whoa.. fancy. Is that even real?"

Some of you people are monsters.

Its not even pizza anymore, its just "stuff thrown onto flat bread"!

Deep dish is actually delicious, as long as its not Chicago style. I do NOT understand putting toppings underneath the cheese. I don't want to be surprised by diced tomatoes.

Toppings should always be on top. That's why they're called fucking toppings.

But me, I love anything with bread and cheese and sauce. Unless the toppings are on the bottom. Or anchovies. Then I'll pass.

Due to lack of judgement, I get to enjoy the best of all worlds. Sicilian, NY, and Deep Dish.

Another pizza favorite:
BBQ sauce, onion, chicken, very flat.

Yes! That pizza is good. Add pineapple next time. You'll thank me.

I just don't like chewy deep dish. I like traditional crusts, but... The thickness. Bleh. I'd rather have lasagna.

I don't know why, but I cannot do a BBQ or Buffalo chicken pizza with onions. MAYBE white cooking onions, but the taste of the red onions, to me, does not mix well.

I could go for a nice calzone from the local pizza place I grew up in. For a town population of  "As of the census[3] of 2000, there were 3,231 people", its got a 5star rating with 132 reviews. And many of them aren't local reviews, because they still struggle with how to use AOL.

And no, we can't share. I will eat a calzone as big as your head by myself, tyvm.

I might be bloated for a week, but it'll be worth it. And hey, anything to keep creepy old dudes from shouting that as a greeting to me, I'm down with. Well. Almost.

I guess the next time I'm up that way, I'll have to show you and your lady friend my mad calzone consumption skeelz. You'll both be amazed. And appalled. We can get pizza too, and just roll around to get to our next destination.

Oh, Philly Cheese steak pizzas are good too, no matter what LH says.

Cheese, a thick layer of tomato sauce and a crispy, but not thin, crust is all I need. Oh, and bonus points if there's a scattering of blue cheese. Just enough to get a hint of the taste.

They don't have pics of their calzones! They make silly pizzas for tourists and hipsters but most of the local normal people go there for their less exotic pies (such as cheese, bacon, margherita, shroom, sausage, pepperoni, etc) and their calzones. The calzones are all hand-made to order - crimped by hand too, no funky gadgets. Very rustic looking, golden brown crust. When you cut one open, the cheese oozes out. The spinach they use in the calzone is sautéed with tons of garlic. They make their own sauce too on the premises (just like a REAL pizzeria should).

The "famous" pizza in our region is Pepe's White Clam pizza, which is packed with clam, cheese, and garlic, no red sauce. Add bacon and it's a white clam casino. These are a regional specialty made in New Haven at the first (or second, if you believe New Yorkers) established commercial pizzeria in the country - that is still operated by members of the original family.

Luigi's is also a New Haven-style pizzeria, just one town away, a few blocks from home.
