Bill, regardless of my monitor and browser; I'm comparing this image with your other images and on the same computer and it's relatively different. I can see the upper portion where you might have brushed some sauce lightly...nice touch btw :)

If this image reflects the true color then I recommend you keep using this new method. Your previous pies had some yellowish effect on them. Nonetheless, they all look amazingly delicious  :-D

Don't have pictures, but some ideas that I have executed.
***Thin crust pizza with 1/3 cornmeal(fine grind), popcorn shrimp, green onions, sauce (Tiger Brand Sauce + tomato puree mix, w/garlic powder), finely diced red pepper, smoked provolone and a little bleu cheese on top.
***Very thick crust(deep dish) liberally sprinkled with olive oil;salami, cappicola, mortadella, large pepperoni slices, olive salad/jardiniere, and mozz. and provolone cheese. (Basically a Muffaletta pizza) .
***Chinese Pizza:Choice of Beef or Pre-cooked chicken, basic crust,bean sprouts, green peppers, red pepper flakes, broccoli(finely cut) ,fresh garlic, light onion, sprinkle of 5-spice powder and light soy under the reg. cheese.

Grilled shrimp pizza added tonite, got an hour to go to get under the wire and it's June. Grilled shrimp, caramelized portabella mushrooms, onions and sliced up Canadian bacon fried crispy, BelGioioso mozz, stella mozz,  parmesan reggiano, asiago and cheddar and topped with some fresh sliced tomatoes. One of the top 4 or 5 pies I've made to date. Other than a doughy edge catching on the way in the oven and making a huge mess when I wiggled and the pie jiggled and loosing a quarter of the toppings on the stone and quickly scraping it off and putting it back on the twisted pie dough, re-heating the oven and getting it back in the oven, turned out really good despite it's less than perfect outcome in the appearance category. Shouldn't have cleaned the oven and stone last it's on clean cycle again :-\ What a mess, on the door, window, hinges and all over the place. Had a bit of a fit and my nice wooden peel I've had for several years took and power dive into the floor....he didn't make it :'( Oh well, off to buy another next week :)

Better late than never:

My interpretation of a pizza inspired by Mike G inspired by Mark Bello:

Lavender honey
Caramelized onion
Teleggio Cheese
White Truffle Oil
