What Makes a Great Pizza?

When hunger strikes, nothing beats a really great slice of pizza – warm, filling and flavor-packed. Whether you prefer deep dish, thin crust, stuffed crust, or New York style, you really can’t go wrong. So our question is, what makes a really great pizza?

We all know a pizza is comprised of 3 basic items- crust, cheese and sauce. Now for the breakdown…

Without an amazing crust to build on, the pizza doesn’t stand much of a chance. If the crust gets soggy, toppings slide off on to the plate, creating a giant goop of pizza slop. Too thin and the crust will crack under the weight of cheese and sauce. There’s definitely an art to pizza crust and like we said, it’s the foundation for a great pie.

Finding the perfect sauce to topping ratio is also critical in our opinion. Especially so because these days you can find practically everything but the kitchen sink as a topping option! If you want to see some really creative pies, just take a look at some of the menus options on our pizza La Jolla page. Some of the more interesting toppings we’ve seen are exotic seafood, mashed potatoes, broccoli and sauerkraut. That’s the great thing about pizza, if you love something, chances are, it will make an excellent topping!

Since we work here, we’ve sampled most – if not all – of the different pizza in town and found that no matter what your style preference, La Jolla has a pizza to match. So, if you find yourself asking, “What’s for dinner?” remember that La Jolla pizza parlors are always a great option.
