F2: Za

Welcome again to Friday's Feast. Today I'll be talking about Pizza. If you don't know what Friday's Feast is all about, please read the Friday's Feast page for a more detailed explanation. If you want to join in on the feast— be sure to leave a comment and include the URL to your post so I and others can know of your contribution. Also, if you want to see a particular topic— feel free to suggest it as well (I'm always looking for new inspirations).

What do you like on your pizza? Growing up I have always seemed to gravitate towards the same ingredients on my pizza— but I do find myself being more cosmopolitan when it comes to the variety of pizzas I enjoy eating.

I typically have a gauge when it comes to trying certain pizzas. I usually like to have Sausage and Mushrooms on my pizza. When I worked at a pizza place they sold individual slices— one with just sausage, and one with just mushrooms. When I had the chance, I made a pizza with both just so I could say that I had a pizza with sausage and mushrooms from there.

When it comes to stuffed pizza, I just love spinach stuffed pizza. I have had other toppings (or stuffings) in my stuffed pizza— but typically gravitate towards spinach when I order stuffed.

I tend to like thick crust pizza more than thin crust pizza. I attribute that to the fact I live in Chicago and Chicago is known for it's deep dish pizza. I'll eat thin crust pizza— I just don't understand the rational to having to fold your pizza to eat it. Why don't these people have a pizza wrap instead (Wait… that could be a recipe idea in the making)— or better yet… just use one layer of filo dough for the crust. I can hear it now: "pizza crust so thin that it falls apart in your hand".

Overall, I will eat just about any pizza and am willing to try new toppings so long as it's edible. Any suggestions?

Next weeks topic is Pumpkin. What… is it October already? What do you do with those pumpkins— do you eat the seeds, or do you throw them away. Any interesting carvings that you make with your pumpkin. Is a green pumpkin any different than an orange one? So… if you have anything that relates to this topic, be sure to leave a comment and include the URL so I can include you in next weeks feast. Even if you have already posted on this topic in the past— your links are always welcome.

Sausage, mushrooms top the list. We've an incredible new place that opened up, just the past year. All kinds of combinations. The chicken, bacon, ranch one is pretty good. Palin mushroom will do or with spinach. Extra garlic is another fave. The latest offering is potato-skin pizza but haven't tried it, as yet. Mom has her usual of pepperoni.

Broccoli and chicken is fairly tasty as well :p

I like just about anything on a pizza and am a huge fan of "unusual" combinations (shrimp, spinach, garlic, taco pizza, whatever). We have a local place where we always get sausage and onion- but we would never get sausage and onion anywhere else. This place just has the BEST. Nancy's Pizza just opened near my house and I was eager to try their Chicago deep dish... but was unimpressed at the quality compared to the huge price. It was good. We paid for great.

My favorite pizza is from a restaurant called Pier 49. They have DIVINE crust, and then they put alfredo sauce, lots of cheese, canadian bacon and pineapple. SOOO delicious. I want some right now.

Also, did you know there's a canned pumpkin shortage this year? You better stock up if you're hoping to make some good things.

I like just plain old cheese pizza! Good stuff, made by Italians, not pizza hut or Dominoes crap!
