Looks fantastic, Brewer!  Some really tasty combos there!

How do you reheat?  I'm an electric frypan man, myself.  Always nice and crispy.
Hey Garvey, most of the times I use a small Breville air convection toaster oven that I bought just for reheating pizza.  If Iím reheating a lot of slices Iíll heat up the big oven with the stone and parchment paper.  Iíll have to try the electric frypan.  That sounds like a great idea!  Thank you!

You spent $400 on a device just for reheating pizza?  Nice.   :chef:

I liked this one. I just threw together a cheese to try it but I can see how some sausage would be a nice addition. Personally, I might go slightly lighter on cheese and sauce next time, just because I like to taste the crust and a thin crust doesn't need much at all for toppings.

Itís gotta have sausage.  Itís not an addition but the default.  A cheese pizza is a subtraction. ;D

My "gotta have" is pepperoni and it MUST see the heat!  Not covered by the cheese.  :pizza:

He's not lying.

Pizza menus in Chicago read like:

1. Sausage
2. Sausage and green peppers
3. Sausage and hot or mild peppers
4. Sausage and onions
5. Sausage and pepperoni
6. Sausage and olives
7. Combination (Sausage, peppers and mushrooms)
8. Deep dish sausage

**add extra sausage to any pizza for $3.00

You forgot the last option.

 :-D

I'm good with sausage as a topping, I just happened to throw this one together spur of the moment with extra ingredients I had on hand.

..............Anyway, like I was sayin', shrimp is the fruit of the sea. You can barbecue it, boil it, broil it, bake it, saute it. Dey's uh, shrimp-kabobs, shrimp creole, shrimp gumbo. Pan fried, deep fried, stir-fried. There's pineapple shrimp, lemon shrimp, coconut shrimp, pepper shrimp, shrimp soup, shrimp stew, shrimp salad, shrimp and potatoes, shrimp burger, shrimp sandwich...............That- that's about it.

Just sayin'!!! And I agree, meat needs to see the heat, not under the cheese....MOST of the time!😊😎

Have not eaten Spam in years!  I did like it when my mother would cut it into strips, like french fries, and fry it up in a skillet.

I imagine a Spam and Pineapple pizza would be pretty good! :drool:

Of course, I would have to have a few jalapenos on it as well... (grin)

Still one of my all time favorite movies.  The best acting  Hanks has done in quite some time...

Also read the book.  Winston Groom is not a very good writer and the movie made him look like he is/was... (chuckle)

My favorite pizzas always have had the sausage and pepperoni on top of the cheese. I don't like it under. To me, under ruins the taste of meats because they are not getting the full effect of the Maillard Reaction. It also looks.... kind of gross.

Is this based on the one that was on Sheridan?

I feel the same way about pie cut.  If I ever own a pizza shop, I have already decided that requests for pie cut will be a $2.00 upcharge.  I'm dead serious.  :chef:

Garvey, is this the place? There are a few by that name but I don't think you mentioned which location you're referring to.
