My in-laws order pizza a lot. They love it. Some people pepperoni, some just cheese. No matter what I do, it's always dry bread with cheese and grease. I'm even getting tired of Hawaiian style, my favorite. Help me innovate more pizza ideas! [more inside]

I'll be in Brooklyn next week for work staying at the Brooklyn Bridge Marriott and I'm looking for a great local place to get a slice. This is the one food I crave the most and I just can't find any great pizza here in Central Florida. So please help me out and tell me where to get a great slice! Not just classic NYC style either, I'm open to any style.
I am gluten intolerant. I want pizza tonight and have volunteered to find a GF pizza dough recipe and make it for us. My husband is unconvinced, citing that while I make really good gluten free foods, every first attempt at a new GF recipe has been a flop (he's not wrong) so he suspects that the pizza won't be so good. Oh my god, I want to prove him wrong. [more inside]
So! We have a Baking Steel*
, and a great crust recipe, and have pretty much mastered the basic process of making pizza. We're throwing a pizza party for some friends on the 21st, and now I need some interesting pizza topping ideas that go beyond the usual mozzarella, sausage, pepperoni, mushroom variety. [more inside]
I really like those diagram posters they put up in fast food restaurants that show you the proper order of burger toppings, or the correct distribution of pepperoni slices per pizza. I'd like to see more of them, but Google is failing me. Maybe I just don't know the proper name for them. Surely somebody has a Tumblr of these or something, right? Ideally they'd include retro ones that go back a few decades. C'mon, hive mind, show me some taco assembly diagrams!
I'm looking for a tried-and-true recipe for creamy Greek salad dressing. When I lived in the Boston area, the Greek salads I got from my neighborhood Greektalian pizza places (like Aram's #2), as well as from the small local pizza chain Upper Crust, came with a wonderful creamy, tangy dressing. Here in California and everywhere else in the country as far as I can tell, Greek salads come with a vinaigrette-type dressing, and searching for Greek salad dressing recipes returns nothing but vinaigrettes as well. I've spent some time experimenting with ingredients, but I'm hoping someone here is familiar with this type of dressing and has a good, tried-and-true recipe. Are you? Do you? I'm looking for recipes only, please, not suggestions for what might be in the dressing.

We moved to Massachusetts from upstate NY last year and this has been nagging at me ever since: Why are most of the pizza shops here pizza & roast beef shops? Roast beef is not paired with pizza in my mind. The roast beef isn't usually a pizza topping, and some of them don't really even seem to serve roast beef as a specialty (just one of many normal sub options). Can anyone offer an origin story?

A ridiculous question: I went to Haverford College (outside of Philly), and a pizza place nearby in Villanova (Connestoga? Campus Corner? I don't know) had an awful cartoon poster of zany college life, and for some reason I've always wanted to get a closer look. The only thing I remember is some hapless partier sitting on the toilet the next morning with the phrase "beer stinkies" hovering above him. [more inside]
What are some good Chicago-area catering options for a group of 10 people? We are hosting a small group of relatives at our house for the weekend in May, and we want to have some classic Chicago dishes for people to eat. But, we also don't want to spend the whole weekend in the kitchen working on deep dish pizza, either. So, we're looking for suggestions on places to check out that we can bring food home for about 10 people. So far, we're going to check out Portillo's and Jewel for Italian beef, but I'm open to other options for the beef and other Chicago specialties. (Actually, we live in Naperville, but I'm willing to go pretty much anywhere in the area if it is worth it.)

So, I have an electric oven, and I sometimes make pizza by simply putting it directly on the grate inside. That means, of course, some cheese falls on the bottom of the oven, which I then have to clean. I was thinking about putting in a baking sheet to catch that stuff, but I was wondering if it will affect cooking time? Or increase power usage or something? The coil is at the bottom of the stove.
