I got into a discussion with my spouse about the fact that the way she made homemade pizza was different from how I make homemade pizza in terms of the order in which we layered the three layers (toppings, cheese, tomato/pizza sauce) on the dough.

How do you prefer to layer, and why do you do it that way?

I'm reserving our answers (and traditional pizza names) to now skew the data.

I voted DSTC, but that's not entirely accurate. The pizzeria I worked at taught me that the proper way to stack a pie is:

Dough, Sauce, Half of the cheese, Toppings, the Remaining cheese.

Not sure about the "why," though. Something about making sure the toppings are embedded in the cheese layer?

That's my preference, and for that reason. It holds together better after cooking.

Yup, same. And I only worked in a pizza joint for two days (long story). I was 15-16. I wasn't smart enough to ask why.
 


DSCT. Buffalos got great pizza. Theres a pizzeria and a bar on every other corner just about, Im not just saying that, there is. Theres a book about it if I can find it I'll post the link, it details what makes it unique.

Found it.

Buffalo Pizza recipe here, its gotta be Margherita pepperoni.

Thin crust, basil oil, sauce, bacon, mushrooms, marinated artichokes, red and yellow pepper, diced onions, pineapple, no cheese. I've become lactose intolerant over the years. Comes with age apparently.

In Home Ec class, a hundred years ago, that's what I was taught as well.

Generally dough, sauce, cheese and then more sauce.

Pizza Hut/Dominos tend to do it that way as well.

Sauce on top is usually a swirl.

Meatlovers pizza is a thing here. Usually dough, ketchup 6-8 meats and swirl of bbq sauce on top.

I went with dough - sauce - toppings - cheese ... but I like to put my bacon on top of the cheese so it gets nice and crispy.

I don't make my own. I should though, because the pizzeria nearest to where I live (like 2-300 meters away) does bad pizza.
Would of course be thin crust pizzas. The Pizzahut pizzas where I work will do in a pinch, but they are not as good as they should be. They are doing something wrong imo, as they are nowhere near as good as the one I had in the US while I was studying there back in 1994. Think they are skimping on the toppings.

If I were to do it though it would be : Dough - Sauce - Cheese - Toppings.
