Pizza. Excellent pizza. What’s not to like about handmade bread that’s been covered with sauce, cheese, and the toppings of your choice? From our lowly point of view, we would have to say nothing. Cheese pizza is so delicious that even the pickiest diners can’t resist it. Pizza, on the other hand, is an ongoing experiment for diners who enjoy taking risks.
Everything begins with the bread, and there are a wide variety of alternatives to choose from, including flatbread, thin-crust, whole wheat, stuffed crust, French bread, deep dish, and many more. The next step is to choose a sauce for the pizza. While red sauces are the most common, white sauces, pesto, barbecue sauces, and other original concoctions can also serve as the pizza’s foundation. And last but not least, the finishing touches.
Pizza toppings typically begin with a specific type of cheese, but after that, you can add virtually anything you want (unless your heart demands anchovies, in which case, please refrain from doing so). Choosing the toppings for your pizza can be a time-consuming endeavor, regardless of whether you’re preparing it at home, getting it delivered, or going to a pizza shop in your neighborhood.
Certain pizza toppings, like pineapple, have the ability to polarise people in a room, while others are enjoyed by everyone. The following are some of the best and most popular pizza toppings, as well as some recipes that you can use to experiment with them.

Although some Americans prefer their sausage mild, others spicy, and Southerners Conecuh, sausage remains a popular topping choice for pizza in the United States. This recipe for pizza made in a cast-iron skillet will offer you yet another reason to adore using it.
Onions are a common topping that, depending on how they are prepared, can give a bit of saltiness or a bit of sweetness to the pizza. They can get crispy in the oven, or they can be caramelized before being added. While white and yellow onions are common toppings for supreme pizzas, barbecue chicken pizzas frequently come with red onions as an accompaniment.
Since bacon complements virtually any dish (you should try it with us), it seems to reason that it would be a popular topping for pizza. The flavor of this light spring meal is brought out by the addition of just a few bits of bacon. You may also come across pizzas topped with pancetta, which is similar to bacon and comes from Italy.
Who doesn’t enjoy having a little bit more cheese for the perfect image of them doing the cheese pull? We absolutely do. Because, according to what we’ve gathered, this is a contentious topic of discussion, you might want to inquire about the amount of cheese that comes with an “additional cheese” order at your neighborhood pizza place.
Peppers of any color—green, red, yellow, or orange—provide the chewy, cheesy pizza with the much-desired crunch it was missing. This recipe for pizza made in a sheet pan is the simplest way to feed a large number of people, which is code for “You ought to hold a pizza party.”
Olives are one of those foods that people either adore or despise, but even if you’re not a fan of olives, you could find that the salty bite that black olives bring to a thickly covered pizza is enjoyable. Perhaps you will simply eliminate each one of them one by one. No matter what.
The midweek dinner that always comes out on top also works wonderfully on pizzas. This protein is seen in a variety of popular pizza topping combinations, including BBQ chicken, buffalo chicken, and chicken bacon ranch.
Despite the fact that a discussion on whether or not pineapple should be included on pizza can be as divisive as an Iron Bowl, those who enjoy pineapple on pizza are devoted, which is why it is always available on menus.
