  • Is cornicione really necessary? Some of my friends and family prefer to just have toppings over it.

  • Depends on the expectations of the folks eating the pizza.

    If I'm expecting Neapolitan and I get toppings to the edge, I probably won't be happy.
    If I'm expecting bar-style and get a cornicione, I probably won't be happy.

  • If you are making pizza at home for family and friends make it however you like it.  There are traditional ways of making each style of pizza, but no hard and fast rules.

  • That's the best part of making your own pizzas at home, you can make them the way YOU like them, and remember, if YOU don't like it you know who to blame. :-D

  • Gotta have cornicione on neapolitan.
    Gotta have full load of toppings to the edge on Fat Aussie Pub Pizza

  • My first thought when I see a traditional pizza loaded with toppings that go all the way to the edge is "I bet that crust is really going to suck." And it usually proves to be true.

  • The better the dough >>> crust, the less toppings I want. Style is irrelevant to me. The best pizza crusts I've eaten need nothing.

  • You might like a classic South Shore Bar-style pizza.  Very common going down the coast South of Boston, the style dates back to the '40's.  Essentially a small, thin personal pan pizza with the toppings going all the way to the edge (preferably with a crispy burnt cheese edge).  But today you can find it as far afield as Chicago and Texas.

    Very rare north of Boston, where roast beef sandwiches reign supreme.

  • Depends on whether or not I want a crust or not
