So, I am a "use what you have" kind of girl and, having some success with AP in a cracker style crust, will continue to use it since, well, I have it. LOL I am also on a very limited budget and have to be selective about what quality ingredients I buy. Given that most of my pizzas will have pepperoni, cheese, and maybe one or 2 other toppings (homemade italian sausage, fresh mushrooms, black olives, green olives, peppers, onions), which should I focus on... getting a quality pepperoni or cheese?
Right now it is Hormel and Kraft (again, what I have and will use til gone). I do not want to recreate any particular pie or style at the moment (although my fave place serves NY style), but want to focus on those quality ingredients. I am not sure what exactly I can get in my area, but I can probably find whatever I decide to try. I do not have a problem with the taste of either the Hormel pepperoni or Kraft Moz, or their performance on my - one and only so far- pie, but I love pepperoni and try new brands any chance I get.
I have looked around and seen several recommended brands of pepperoni and why they are recommended. Same thing with the cheese. I have looked around here and seen the recommendations and why people like them. I just want to know which I should focus on "upgrading"- the pepperoni or cheese?
