Now that you have my favorite and quick pizza crust recipe, you may as well know my go-to pizza toppings. As a kid, I loved experimenting with pizzas. This is one of my creations that stuck. Friends and family always ask for the sausage, pesto and spinach pizza and I easily oblige because I love it too. This is exactly why pizza is so much fun: you can create what you love. I admit I lean towards topping-heavy pizzas and this sturdy crust lends well to a lot of toppings.
