Thank YOU for the great tips! My family did some fairly major (well, major for us) home renovations last summer, so I can totally relate. =)

I'm sorry you feel that way, Will. I can't help what I like, and I do like veggie thin crust pizzas. :p

What about veggie "thick" crust? I'm a fan of anything with lots of green olives on it!

I like thick crust, too! I like all crusts of all sizes, everywhere. I think the best part of most crusted foods (pies, pizzas, etc.) is the crust.

Not a big fan of olives, though. I usually trade them with my mom: my olives for her onions. We make it work. =)
