There are so many different toppings that can be used and the varieties are only limited by your imagination - and what you have in the refrigerator or pantry. But by thinking ahead and planning to have pizza your choices are unlimited.

Regardless of whether you use homemade dough and sauces the toppings are the "make or break" ingredients. Even a basic store-bought base or pita bread can still taste fantastic if you top it correctly.

You have to remember when choosing your toppings that you don't overload the pizza with flavors. Often the simplest ingredients work best, especially when teamed with a tasty, flavor-filled sauce.

Pizzas laden with toppings also take longer to cook as the heat has to get through and cook everything. This is when it is even more important to use a warmed pizza stone or a pizza oven.

*Tip: Be sure your sauce and toppings will work together well. You don't want to team a barbecue sauce with a highly spiced meat topping!
