What makes a great pizza?  That is a question that if you ask 1000 people, you’ll get 1000 answers.  To me, it depends on the day of the week.  I love a good meat lover’s pizza with meatballs, pepperoni, sausage, bacon, and ham.  I also like my pizza with lots of sauce.   Some pizza makers will tell you that the more sauce you use, the more likely your pizza is to fold when you pick it up.

The Great Pizza Debate

Is it New York Style, Chicago Style, Sicilian Style, or even Detroit Style?  I think it all depends on where you are from.  I personally like the New York Style with the thin crust so you can fold and eat it on the go.

Another question that if we ask 100o people, we would get 1000 different answers.  So, what are the most popular pizza toppings?  According to the website Pizza Today, these are the top pizza toppings in the United States:
