Standard pizza

Soop | Apr 6, 2010 08:48 AM

I perfected the base now, so I guess I should focus on toppings. Obviously everyone will have their favorites and they'll depend on the type of base too. The basic thing is not to over-do it, but here's my "standard" pizza topping list:

Parma ham
Buffalo mozzerella
Fresh basil leaves
Red onion
A tomato-based tomato sauce
EV olive oil
black pepper and parmesan depending on what I feel like.

Obviously no two tomato sauces are the same, so it will depend a little on that, but what do you think? I started adding onion recently because I felt it was lacking a little bite. The alternative was olives (kalamata) but they tend to be pricey and harder to find (well I know where to get them, but I'm not walking all that way just for olives).

What do you guys think? Any changes you'd make? Or perhaps you have a standard classic you'd like to share. This is for a traditional thin and crispy italian style pizza, not Dominoes or Chicago style.
