    We are a pizza loving family. In the summer we grill our pizza! If you haven't tried it, you are missing out. Since today is going to be HOT, I think we will just order out. Pepperoni is the topping we can all agree on in this house.

    Love this topic! Mine secret ingredient for Pizza is pineapple, roasted garlic (the best), and mushrooms! 
    I'm not a big fan on pepperoni unless it's cooked a little burnt and crispy. 

    I had a Beijing Roasted Duck Pizza when I was in China. It was weird at first but once you accept the idea of eastern and western flavor combination, it tasted great!

    I recently tried spicy honey drizzled on pepperoni pizza and it was a revelation!

    That sounds delicious, Tracy! My husband and I like to create a white pizza with ricotta, prosciutto, spinach and artichokes *chef's kiss*

    Pizza is one of my favorite foods. I like almost anything on it except anchovies! Our go-to is from our local pizza shop and it's a Greek pizza. It has all the ingredients of a gyro but on a pizza (feta cheese, tomatoes, black olives, onions, beef/lamb, and pepperoncini). 

    Thanks, Jill for such a fun topic. Great idea!

    I prefer my pizza to be veggie. Try eggplant as a topping and once it is out of the oven put avocado slices on it :)

    My all-time favorite pizza is Brier Hill.  It's just crust, tomato sauce, green peppers, and romano cheese.

    Brier Hill style pizza is a local legend in Youngstown, Ohio, where I grew up.  The pizza is named after the steel mill neighborhood where many Italian immigrants lived.  Here's a fun blog post if you want to learn more about what I think is the best pizza ever:  https://bobonbooks.com/2015/07/11/growing-up-in-working-class-youngstown-brier-hill-pizza/
