My attempt to create an eternal thread and this is what I came up with!
Anyway, what is your preference, what is the best you have ever had, and PLEASE share any great recipes, including dough, that you may have!
My preference is thin and well done, with a crispy well flavored crust, light on the quality cheese and with a natural tomato flavored sauce. For toppings I prefer the simple garlic or mushroom pie. If the meats are top notch I will go with sausage. The anchiove is a lost art in pizza that I have disposed of as never to be tasted again.
The best I ever had was off the beaten path in "real" Pisa, in Italy. On a very hot day in July my family, a group of 14, stumbled in and consumed 12 of the best pizzas that I have ever tasted and seen. So thin, so crispy, so sublime that my 9 year old consumed her entire pie! Spectacular...I had mine with speck and a fresh egg on top...simply spectacular.
Very nearly as good, but a complete 180 from the Pisan (which was very Neopolitan) pizza is The American Flatbread Co. in Waitsfield Vt.:
As "Vermonty" a place as you might ever enter, they turn the bakery floor into a restaurant and bar on weekend nights and bake your pizzas in the wood burning bread oven on the same device that warms you! Just check out the menu!
I have dined there many a weekend night while free heel skiing at Mad River Glen and drinking Long Trail Ale. Simply spectacular. Check out their whole site:http://www.americanflatbread.com/res...waitsfield-vt/
As for recipes...I have never succeeded in making a good pizza, I think I have bad water for it.
