•The bread is crisp, very thin, and you can tell it has been baked in a wood oven. One of the ones where you can slide it in, and the bottom comes out all charcoaled.
•The sauce is not clumpy or grainy. It is very smooth and it's as if it wasn't cooked and hardened. It must be sweet and acidic, that is by far the most important part of the sauce.
•There shouldn't have to be much cheese if the sauce is good. The way the cheese is integrated depends on how well and in what style you are making your pizza. It shouldn't be greasy, although browning is good.



So how do you folks like your pizza?


Wholeheartedly agree on the crust. No stuffed crust pizza, please.

I'm less particular on the sauce, but there should be tomato sauce.

Cheese? There should be some. Sometimes, there is such a thing as too much cheese.

There should be a meat. Maybe mushrooms. Maybe some peppers & onions. No fruit.

Well, for me the bread must be a bit thick. I do not like thin-crust pizzas, but they are bearable for me to eat anyways. I do not like burnt or charcoaled bread that much too. I’m not too particular on the sauce, but I dislike it if it’s too clumped up together. It’s much better if it is well-seasoned and I agree with OP’s sweet(-ish) likes for the sauce. The cheese, I’m not too particular on that, but I tend to like those with multiple cheese varieties because it gives liots of flavor.


Aaaaand,

Definitely no pineapples, peas, mayo, bananas, hot sauce and other things that are not meant to be with pizza for me.

I once tried hot sauce on pizza, it was actually quite good, but keep in mind this comes from a person that likes to eat wasabi ( not on Pizzas ) from time to time

New York pizza is indistinguishable from the greasy cardboard box it comes in.
A free society rests on four boxes: The soap box, the ballot box, the jury box, and the ammo box.

Sbarro's isn't that great tbh. Local joints tend to be significantly better at NY pizza.

It's my favorite type of pizza imo, but pizza hut is up there. Also roman style pizza tastes like a garbage can imo

Lots of cheese, lots of sauce, and pepperoni for meat.

That being said, I'm a filthy heathen and I can never resist dessert pizzas. Nutella and strawberry is decadently and sinfully delicious, and I feel no shame.

Nope, that's merely for dying not hungry.

I love almost all Pizzas, with nearly every standard topping. I like both NY and Chicago style. Generally, it's easier to describe the types of pizzas I dont like as that is easier.

1. Tombstone pizzas are disgusting.
2. Pizza that is layered in grease or the grease is excessive and drips.
3. So called "artesian" pizzas (google it) where the cook tries to be hipster and throw half an un-minced onion on top or a tomato wedge or other barely cut ingredient. If I want a sausage pizza, that doesnt mean add an entire sausage link. If I want tomato or a mushroom, cut it down to bite sized portions. These millenial artesian pizza joints somehow found a way make eating pizza very inconvenient.

I've never seen that. What I have seen is the burned crust. As in, my fingers are sooty. >:(

Nope. Never again. I only make pizza at home, from scratch, in my own non-authentic electric oven that doesn't burn things to crap cause cooking isn't actually that hard.
