I have a wood fire pizza oven and have learnt the basics now.
Had the usual pizzas like Hawaiian, meat lovers, etc.

Favourite pizza so far is a satay chicken.
Cooked satay chicken strips, sliced red onion, red capsicum, cheese. Not a lot on it but it's good.
Going to fire it up again tomorrow night for dinner :D

What's your favourite pizza.

Yum.
My wife made a dessert pizza. Made a chocolate dough by substituting a bit of flour for cocoa powder. Topped with banana, peanut butter, marshmallows and a boozey mascarpone.

Pizza is something that shouldn't be over complicated. It's always sad when you look at a pizza and somebody is trying to put a thousand different ingredients onto it, and it's overflowing with everything.

Keep it plain, and keep it simple. And use the best quality ingredients you can get, or can grow (which is good for us).

But a margherita pizza:

Make the sauce yourself. Those pizza sauces at the supermarket are just full of those horrible dried herbs, and they never get the seasoning right, and the tomatoes are the highest croppers, not the best tomatoes.

Boil and reduce home grown beefsteak tomatoes, and cook them with plenty of basil, and discard the basil whole. Then blend it and strain it, and boil it down some more until it's tasty and full of flavour. And get the seasoning right, sugar, salt and pepper. One taste should make you start salivating, if you're not, learn to season better.

Next, prepare your pizza dough. It's not hard, but watch a few youtube videos to get the consistency right. Next is just my personal preference. Work the dough as little as possible after it's risen, it makes it crispier, and I prefer it that way. And if you've got an oven you can control, and can have a heated bottom (Deep base frying pan preheated to be really hot, or just a good pizza oven), or keep it thicker if you can't get good quick heat.

Cheese. Make your own. Mozzarella cheese is stupidly easy to make. Try it, and you won't regret it. If you can't do that, get some bocconcini.

Then tomatoes. Homegrown, get a mixture of cherries, beefsteak, low acidity, high acidity. Keep it mixed and it'll be awesome.

And basil. Whole leaves, just drop it on.

Then cook it hard and fast.

**sigh* chef mode over*

We got into home made pizzas a couple of years ago, never looked back after making our own bases. Wood fire oven and basic ingredients like colum mentioned. Did a few yabbie pizzas which became my fav.
