Who puts peppers in spaghetti sauce? Are you insane!?

 Green peppers and onion don't belong in spaghetti sauce... what the hell.

 Well, there are at least two people in here who are wrong. Do you guys just dump some tomato paste over pasta? 

wink

 

Of *course* not. We add meat :) and spices!

Man I sure am glad to hear that. That at least makes it worth trying.

Where does the board stand on mixing in non Italian cheeses on pizza?  Like that weird Mozzarella/Cheddar/American mix they use on Old Forge style pizza here in Northeast Pennsylvania, or that Provel stuff in St Louis?

NO.  JUST NO.  That crap is an Abomination.

I'd rather have velveeta on a pizza than this E36 M3. 

 

Seriously St. Louis, you have some of the best Italian food in the country. It is one of your few redeeming qualities. WHY DOES THIS EXIST?

Because one post wasn't enough, berkeley PROVEL. 

 

St. Louis style pizza, with provel cheese, is the only style of pizza that I don't like. I like some better than others, but the only one that is a 1 on a normal scale, when pizza starts at a 5, is anything that has seen Provel cheese.

Pointless discussions are the best. And this is a good one. I don't know if the OP planned the spectacular non sequitur, but it has been masterfully played by all participants.

Cuz, come on over to this thread. It's fun!

I am both intrigued and disgusted by this product. I've never seen it or heard of it before, but I feel like I need to try it.

With regards to logdog though, I have and will continue to use non traditional cheeses, sauces, and toppings on pizza. 

Homemade hot sauce, pulled smoked rib meat, provolone cheddar and gruyere.

Tuna salad, rosemary infused olive oil, and hot peppers on a grilled crust. Asiago and fontina grated on top. 

Salsa and queso for a sauce on taco pizza, with cheddar and oaxaca on top.

That looks horrible, but it's also in a 5lb block, which is some serious commitment to any one cheese product, so somebody must like it.

St Louis needs to be grounded for that E36 M3, and for sweet sauce. Provel makes a solid grill cheese tho

Seriously. I mean, my family appreciates good pizza and I grew up visiting many of S.F.'s best purveyors, but that didn't stop me from being excited about pizza day in the school cafeteria.

You don't have to have bad sex on purpose though. Or maybe you do. I don't know what you like. And if you do like bad sex more than good sex, then is the bad sex really the good sex?

No irony.  

Pointless discussions are pointless discussions.  Move on, give up, or leave, but you are harming the children with your perpetual bickering, and nobody is going to win the argument.

Again, missing the irony in your own response. 

Isn't bickering about people bickering, equally as pointless? cheeky

Green peppers are not yet good food, in my opinion.  They become tasty food after they become red, orange or yellow. 

(Irony amplified by responding to the wrong post.)

Sounds like you need more of both. I've had bad sex and bad pizza, I'll happily go without than have either on a regular basis

In reply to mazdeuce - Seth :

Excellent point. I think the whole "even if it's bad pizza it's still pizza" notion is much more applicable to pizza than sex.

I really don't want an expression of my affection to be too comparable to anything from the frozen aisle.

I must be a worse person than I thought.  First step in making my from scratch sauce is to sauté onions and peppers in olive oil along with salt, pepper and a little red pepper flake.  cheeky

No.  It's not.  And that's speaking as a man who can find the good in a Joe Corbi's fundraiser slab baked on a cookie sheet.

IMO's Pizza and other St. Louis Style pizza is the sexual equivalent of having your junk slapped with a mitt full of used trailer hub grease.  Yeah, technically somebody touched your junk and made it slippery, but it really doesn't qualify as sex.  And that provel crap spread on a thin crunchy crust that makes matzah taste good doesn't qualify as pizza.

I'm sure my pizza won't appeal to many people, but we love it.

I don't usually use sauce, but instead with scatter some diced roma tomatoes. 

I've got my sourdough crust nailed.

First, I brush it with olive oil, then sprinkle it with grated carrot. From there, it varies. Last time was chopped onion, minced garlic, shrimp, fresh spinach, fresh basil, diced tomatoes. Black olives on half.

Grated whole milk mozzarella, then grated parmesan when it comes out of the oven. I've been known to use a bit of Swiss, it adds a touch of sweetness to the cheese.
