    All of the above:
    Crispy at the edges, getting softer as you move to the pizza center, with a nice liberal dusting of Larlar over the top

    Definitely crunchy.

    I'm not reeeaally a super big fan of meat I guess, because I only like it way more done than most people. Crunchy pepperoni, crispy bacon, seared chicken, steak can totally have some char on it.

    I do love lots of jerky, though.

    My kiddo and I fairly frequently split a frozen pizza, and while she used to like pepperoni a lot, for now it's just plain cheese, so I pick it off of her half before putting it in the oven and place them lightly along the outermost edge so they'll get crispy. The interior ones won't crisp before the dough starts to burn, usually even if you pull them up and reset them.

    Hit it with the broiler for a minute or two, it will crisp everything up nicely.

    My step dad got a green egg grill and when he is doing steaks or something he tosses a bunch of pepperoni on first for an appetizer.

    Pepperoni is the only really good pizza topping

    This is a real point of contention for so many people in a group setting.

    It's either like, 30% of the people want literally every fucking topping on a pizza and it's a nasty mess, or are just fine with pepperoni or a cheese pizza.

    Then there's that 1 person who swears up and down if you get pineapple on the pizza everyone at the party will eat it, and that same person will also claim that "every time we get it, that's the only one that's gone" but they're liars.

    I will eat a pizza with almost any topping on it

    I wish I could find someone else around who likes pizza with pineapple on it

    I really like it, but I cannot eat more than a couple of slices of any pizza these days

    Feel free to order me a Hawaiian (ham and pineapple) and I will eat the whole fucking thing myself.

    If people can't agree on pizza toppings then the only answer is to get plain cheese.

    Then nobody gets to be happy.

    Plain cheese pizza is one of the best pizza options. I've never been unhappy with plain cheese as an option, even if I occasionally prefer other things.

    If the plain cheese pizza from your local joint is bad, then their pizza is probably bad and the toppings are just covering for the bland ass shitty pizza.

    I used to work at a pizza joint back in the day and the main cook would put slices of pepperoni along the edge of the oven until they crisped up and snack on them. It totally blew my mind at the time. Such genius. Very crisp. Wow.

    Yup if the cheese can stand alone as a decent pizza at a pizza place, then they make really good pizza.

    I'd be lying if I didn't admit to getting out a baking tray and slapping down a whole bunch of pepperoni on it and cooking it for a few minutes in the oven once at midnight.

    My dad didn't care for pepperoni, so I grew up in a world where pepperoni pizza was a rarity seen only at events or friends' houses, and Hawaiian pizza was the default choice.

    Marrying someone who despises pineapple on pizza has turned the tables and brought me more in line with society as a whole. When I see a Hawaiian pizza in the wild I appreciate the boldness of whoever ordered it, and subtly try to eat the entire thing.

    Pineapple as a topping is controversial, but what about pineapple as a bottoming

    Slice of pineapple, melt some cheese over it, toss some ham on there

    I love pineapple.

    I don't like fruit on my pizza.

    I think it's a mouthfeel thing but I couldn't describe why I hated it other than "this just tastes gross and weird"

    I have nothing against plain cheese but I'd always rather have some kind of toppings on it besides cheese.

    My wife came around to fresh pineapple a couple years back and loves it now, but is still very firmly in the "no pineapple on pizza" camp.

    I gently investigate the discrepancy from time to time, as opportunity allows. For her, it seems to come down to:
    • Fresh pineapple is cool and awesome, while canned pineapple has both a weirder texture and worse taste
    • Pizza is a savory dish and pineapple's sweetness should not be anywhere near a savory dish.

    Luckily when I've been at things with Hawaiian pizza recently, it's usually big group things where people are a little confused as to why the Hawaiian pizza is there in the first place, so I can humbly enlist myself to take care of the excess.

    Pepperoni, pineapple, and jalapeno is one of my all-time favorite pizzas. It's got everything, savory, spicy, sweet, salty, cheese, acidic bite.

    Pineapple is a fruit I would not want to eat outside of a savory dish, personally. I find it works best balanced out by some spicier flavors.

    I don't do it on pizza very often, but I'll regularly throw it in some fried rice or similar.

    Personally, I don't like warm fruit. I also don't like things on pizza that add superfluous liquids to the proceedings, such as pineapple and fresh tomato slices etc.

    Pineapple is good when you get BBQ sauce instead of red sauce. Also just get real bacon on it.

    I don't really get people who say fruit shouldn't be on pizza because it's sweet and then bite into a slice with tomato sauce without hesitation.

    Do they just not taste the sweetness of the sauce?

    half of eating is things matching your expectations

    ever get a bite of something you personally like eating in a dish you weren't expecting it in?

    if your tomato sauce is notably sweet its bad sauce because it has a lot of added sugar
