Why would anyone just order a plain cheese pizza when the toppings are so much better?

My son was a cheese pizza kid when he was younger because he thought pepperoni was too spicy but now he will eat it. But for adults? Come on live a little

My mother and grandmother immigrated from Italy. The pizza they made, and the pizza that was available at the local pizza joints in NYC back then, were very simple.

Cheese pizza was a staple.

We ate pizza as a side dish to accompany a meal or as a snack. And in a really good traditional Italian pizza it's the dough itself that takes center stage. But the big pizza companies today are selling a very different product.

I suppose this is not an answer to your question about contemporary pizza, but you triggered some childhood memories and I felt compelled to talk about them.

@Viper Okay, now I’m scared. 😄
I do that most of the times… my favorite kind of pizza especially if crunchy …

I dunno one of the places nearby has this fancy 4 cheese pizza which is pretty much to die for, I order it every time.

@deadteddy You say this just because you haven't yet tried mine with Parma ham 🫢

IMO, pizza is suppose to be dough, tomato sauce and cheese. Adding spices to the sauce such as garlic or onion is fine, but when you start adding meats, other veggies, or even fruit, it takes away the flavor of the pizza.
Because cheese pizza is delicious, too, especially with different types of cheese. Everyone doesn’t have to do stuff the same way. C’mon— live and let live 🙂

My grand daughters order a pizza without red sauce, or a margarita pizza. Personally, I like mine with pepperoni.

@HannibalAteMeOut I can't hear you with my worm in your mouth, speak up

@HannibalAteMeOut it's already been cut, no need for more

I'll see myself out lol

If the pizza I get is plain: it is (A) cheaper and (B) I can put things on it the pizzeria doesn't offer...

I love salami pizza with green peppers. Or just cheese too. I cant go wrong with any pizza 😋
Nothing wrong with a plain pizza sans toppings. But it’s everyone’s choice.

I often eat plain cheese pizza. I’m a picky eater though
RodionRomanovitch · 56-60, M
Because tomatoes are too expensive now.

I’m like your son but mostly cause I’m very picky
Torsten · 36-40, M

Nolovehere · 31-35, M
Because they want to. 🤷🏾‍♂️
Justmeraeagain · 51-55, F

Hotpynkiller · 36-40, F
Plain cheese is the bomb
bobhall5868 · 56-60, M
How about live a lot! Get all the toppings, except anchovy!
Jonjdw · 46-50, M
I prefer toppings.
blackdiamonds · 36-40, F
@Jonjdw i like cheese, pepperoni, mushrooms,onions and peppers on mine
Jonjdw · 46-50, M
@blackdiamonds i’m fine with those toppings not really fond of pineapple. But yet I’ve had pineapple and it’s not terrible like I think it should be.

Extra sauce w/ mushrooms....that's my twist👌🏽🤌🏽
Some of us like plain Janes
cherokeepatti · 61-69, F
I have no idea

Gf does the same thing. BORING. SO many great toppings that really bring out a ton of flavor.
jackpotato · 41-45, M
is this place a battling ground for the future of pizza?
