@monday Love making my own pizza. It's about the only thing I cook 😂 Do my sourdough crust from scratch...so good.

@monday it happens that I make my own. I prefer salami, jalapeño and some tasty cheese. Pineapple, ham is also OK. A tasty but surprising combo is cloudberries and moose meat, works very well together.

@monday Sunday is pizza and movie night in our house. We mix our own dough and cook in an Ooni Fyra, unless the weather’s bad then it’s a pizza stone in the oven. My go to in the Ooni is caramelized onions, sliced pear and Gorgonzola with a drizzle of hot honey after it comes out. If it’s in the oven, I go with peppers, onions and mushrooms.

@monday I make a pizza every week, usually on Friday night. We’ve had pizza bricks for the oven for over 40 years. We are vegetarian, so most common toppings include mushrooms, Kalamata olives, onion, garlic, fresh cherry tomatoes (after baking) and either green peppers or artichoke hearts. We’ve done others, like a 3 mushroom. And, yes, pineapple is fine on pizza. Whatever it is goes on tomato sauce with mozzarella.

In the past, we used three cheeses for awhile, and we did used to eat ham or pepperoni. A favorite then was mushroom, ham and fresh cherry tomatoes (after baking). Seattle also has a great local pizza chain in Pagliacci’s.

@monday I don’t have the patience to make my own dough but would love to one day. In the mean time I make the most of the local speciality pizza places near me.

One thing I will confess to… I’m controversial in that one of my favourite toppings is ham and pineapple. 🍕

@monday We've been enjoying making our own pizzas lately. Mostly as something to do together, but also slightly healthier than the chain restaurants.

@monday Someday I hope to build an outdoor earth oven for pizza and more, but meanwhile i happily eat pizza from a local non-chain shop that is amazing. My must-have topping is also why few share pizza with me: lots of anchovies.

@monday I love pizza. I’m working on sourdough pizza crust for my home baking. Don’t have a great recipe yet. 🍕

@monday I’ve been making pizza at home for a while, and this year finally got a pizza oven (Ooni Frya). In my hubris I even have a dedicated pizza page on the blog.

@monday Usually: plain margherita. If a place knows how to make a good one, all of the other ones will be fine too. Lately: Detroit style, to the horror of my Italian friends. That crust…

@monday Love ordering and eating pizza. I like the idea of making my own it just doesn't always turn out the way I want. We love our Detroit-style pizza here in Michigan.

@monday we like our pizzy thin crusted with simple toppings. My favorite is a cheese only white pizza. We sometimes make our own from scratch on our Big Green Egg.

@monday I used to make my own pizza. A little harder in my motorhome lifestyle; I stored my Ooni pizza oven. Though sometime I want to try making pizza on my Blackstone griddle. Fan of MOD Pizza.

@monday I'm confused as to why "Chicage Style" can be thin crust or deep dish. I'm a thin crust guy. Making my own pizza means setting off the smoke alarms in the house, but it is fun.

@monday Whenever I've made pizza, I've made the dough. Toppings: mushrooms, cheese, tomato sauce. We haven't modded the oven so it will make really good pizza: sad to admit, one from the pizza place always tastes better that our homemade.

@monday BBQ Chicken is my favorite, at least until something even better comes my way!

@monday I'm a pretty conventional pizza lover. I'm happy with any sort of topping, except with anything that comes from the sea. If you've got pineapple with either ham or BBQ chicken, I'd probably go for that though.

I also had a dessert pizza once, which was an interesting experience. It was a sweet base and I think the toppings were ice-cream and chocolate sauce. It's nicer than it sounds.

@lmika With you on this. Sea-stuff isn’t meant for pizzas. @monday

@monday mmmmmmmmmm pizza..... we order pizza, ummm, too much, especially living near two local places that make fabulous pizza.

We reheat it on a cast iron pizza pan in the oven, which is way better than a pizza stone, because I haven't managed to break it. (Yet.) The cast iron pan makes leftover pizza crispy and melty, in all the right ways.

I wish I had some pizza right now.

@jemostrom @monday salami on pizza sounds amazing and I have to try this now!

@annahavron Tip: while your pizza comes home in that cardboard box, it's being steamed and losing a lot of its out-of-the-oven crispiness. Best to take it home with the box open, if possible, then reheat as needed.

@monday I’m a classic pepperoni only guy. But occasionally branch out when we try a new place or make it at home fresh then I’ll usually add other toppings.
