Winning Wednesdays: Pizza toppings

The CBC breaks the news on an Italian dish that you’ve probably heard about. You’ll need some nippy cheese:

In our Summer issue, there’s a pizza topped with pickled asparagus. On my pizza, I choose nippy cheeses like goat and feta over a gooey mozzarella. Fresh tomatoes are too watery, and green peppers never cook properly. That’s just me. In Brazil, a common pizza has canned green peas and ham. And remember that week in 1992 when potato pizzas were all the rage?

What are your favourite pizza toppings? And which toppings do you hate? Since it’s Wednesday, post a comment here by the end of the day and I’ll draw one winner who’ll receive a copy of Bob Blumer’s Glutton for Pleasure, which has several recipes for pizza.

I don't eat or make pizza all that often, but I love bacon, pineapple and blueberries. First time I tried it was at our annual Bleberry Festival. Mmmmm.

AND I am just the opposite. Hate ham and pineapple on a pizza. We do pizza probably once every week or 10 days. We use Salsa Salami versus pepperoni. Gives it a nice zing. The extras are mushrooms, red (never green) peppers, and sliced tomatoes if they are in season. Or slices of a while onion that might be left over in the fridge. Plus a layer of cheese just after the sauce, layered with the salami, topped with more cheese and then the add ons. and in the summer, grilled on the BBQ. hmm hmm good!

I still love the very tacky but retro-appealing Hawaiian with ham and pineapple and of course double cheese!
