    My wife has a bread machine CuisineArt I think. She makes a nice pie that will make you forget the take out stuff. I like the thin crust. If I want bread I will go and eat some bread.

    Kgp912 I agree with thin crust, so for me the crust is the pizza. Jerry

    It's the crust toppings and sauce that makes the best pizzas

    Hope i cleared that up for you

    But the best pizza I've ever eaten was at the Ramada Inn at the Midland Texas Air Port, damn it was fantastic

    Midland is such a hopping little town, we stayed there one Saturday night, and was going to go to the bar in the motel, it closed at 7 pm and they told us if we wanted to get any food the restaurant closed at 8 pm, so we ordered a pizza, and partied in the room

    If the topping is lousy, the crust can't save it. It's a combination of the two, with a thin crust. The thick crust was invented to reduce the topping cost by making the border bigger. ;-)

    While we're talking about crusts, has anyone else seen the folks at Pizza the Hut get out a stack of thin crusts and then an aerosol can of something and then "paint" the outer edge of the crust? What's up with that?

    I'm getting hungry! My vote: Thin Crust and good sauce, and not too much toppings. I don't care the the thick, smothered, somewhat undercooked variety.

    Gotta have both to make a good pie but it is the toppings that you really taste. The crust is more of a texture thing unless it is like cardboard then the whole deal is FUBAR.

    I think it is the combination of sauce, crust, toppings and who makes it. After trying a deep dish pizza in Chicago at "Pizzeria Uno" I thought I was a thin crust fan until I had a deep dish at "Lou Malnati's". After that I was confirmed deep dish fan until the trip to NYC when I had a pizza at "Lombardi's". Good pizza is good pizza. It's the combination. When it all comes together crust, toppings, sauce it is to die for.

    Worst pizza I ever had was in Gatlingburgh, TN 35 to 40 years ago, It was the only pizza place in town and the locals thought it was great. To me I couldn't tell if it was a pizza or a burnt clutch out of a car from the local drag strip. Guess they didn't know any better.

    Pizza is everywhere now, heck we even have a few good ones in Btown.

    You can't have the best pizza if any part of it is sub-par.

    I like almost all traditional pizzas.

    Don't care for the foo foo fad pizzas. Spinach belongs in a salad, not on a pizza.

    About the only off beat pizza I like is putting smoked oysters on a cheese pizza.

    If you like smoked oysters (or mussels or clams) you'll like them on cheese pizza.

    If you don't like them, then yeah, bleah.
