I do if they are good ones which for some reason always seem to come in glass bottles.

Here are a couple. The first pie is tomato, anchovies, olives, Calabrian chilies, and the second is cauliflower, garlic, anchovy, red pepper, and smoked EVOO.

Especially ones in glass that are rolled up.  The secret to anchovies is to get exactly the correct amount on the pizza.  Not enough it is blah, too many and it is dog food.

I love them but I rarely use them because nobody else in my family will eat them. My favorite is anchovies, mushrooms, and onions.

I chop them fine and put them under the cheese, they do not notice them , just like the pizza.  I can taste them, though.  I do have one daughter that likes them.

Spinach, anchovies, and olives. Now that's good pizza  :pizza:. Unfortunately most pizza shops use those pre-cut anchovies but we take what we can get.

Now I can't believe anyone would ever not notice a Pizza Anarchy!  ;D

Mario Batali says the best ones are packed fresh in salt.

Here's a little sample of our anchovy pizza:

Cream cheese, onions, olives, EVOO, a bouquet of herbs and thin lemon slices cooked with it.

I think the key to getting people to like anchovies is to get rid of the massive amount of salt on them.  I like to rinse mine before using.  Nothing like biting into a chunk of salt. Blah.

La Sera - That looks fantastic!

Made my first ever pizza with anchovies today! Not bad for a change, though I still would say tuna is my preferred fishy topping...

There's a topping that I've never tried (tuna). Do you usually put anything on with it?
Title: Re: Who likes anchovies on pizza?

Strangely enough, corn niblets.

This is (apparently) a common topping combination in Germany, or so claimed a German roommate of mine a decade ago. I made her one then, but never tried to eat it myself until last year. I think I added some hot peppers in oil when I was eating it, but thought it quite good.

I thought this was about anchovies man.... ::)
Title: Re: Who likes anchovies on pizza?
Post by: Jackitup on March 02, 2013, 12:00:30 AM
actually, I would rather brown the anchovies in a bit of butter and chunk up a bit and then fold into the sauce for a much tamer/nuttier taste with the little fishy fishies ;D

Not a big fan of anchovies on pizza.  I do like an anchovie paste to be used in caesar salad dressing.  Same with Olives, I don't like olives, but I really like an olive paste on sandwiches.

I like anchovies, but not with tomato sauce. I prefer a pizza with just anchovies, oil and some parsley flakes. This pie is small because my wife won't even taste. No way for her.
Pour the wine, it's time to try a slice.

Here's another one; here I used the remainder of the anchovies from last week, and cut them into smaller pieces. Also added my first try at a garlic-parsley oil that went along very well.

(Also included, a gratuitous dough tossing shot...)

I had a very simple variation of an anchovies pizza called "Calabrese" in Northern Italy and it since then became one of my favourite pizze.

Anchovies are cut in thin stripes and marinated in EVOO with lots of chilli.(to each taste).
Pizza is dressed with just tomato sauce, the anchovies and olives or capers. (no mozz)
After (!) baking just sprinkle generously some fresh ground parmigiano cheese.
The Pizza is really lite and digestible and the fresh parmigiano makes a nice contrast to the spicy anchovies.

I love anchovies on pizza. I think they go well with fresh cherry/grape tomatoes, thinly sliced garlic, oregano and EVOO.

I enjoy them as a sauce component for sfincione, too.  :drool:

Anchovies for me and the dog but nobody else will touch them. I do use them in a few savory dishes.

As has been said earlier, used discreetly, and not to be an overbearing flavor, I think they add a lot of depth to pizza sauces and many other dishes too!

Try rinsing them off under cold water then soaking in milk for about 1/2 hour might just change your opinion.
