With me it's mood. Sometimes I want a trashy delivery-style pizza, sometimes I feel like a cheapo Totinos Pizza square, sometimes I want an authentic pizza from a Pizzeria. While they share the Crust/Sauce/Toppings/Cheese format, they're almost different foods.

Also feel the need to give a shout-out to the Papa Murphy's Take and Bake. There's a unique flavor that is added by my own oven and sometimes that's the ticket.

Since being diagnosed celiac, I've had ordinary pizzeria pizza a couple times, and it was heavenly. So much better than I ever remembered...until the symptoms set in.

If I don't feel like going to the local pizza place, I like to get a frozen three meat DiGiorno, add two packets of Boboli sauce on top of it, add canned mushrooms on top, and top it with fresh cut green peppers. Bake it at 400 for 45 minutes directly on the oven rack so it's nice and crunchy.

I've never thought to use Boboli to customize existing frozen pizzas. You are a visionary, sir.

Love mushrooms on pizza- sausage and mushrooms my favorites, but just mushrooms OK too.
But canned mushrooms = barf.

I love canned mushrooms, especially on pizza. I find fresh mushrooms tend to dry out on pizza.

Mushrooms are 90% water, they always make my pizza soggy, I make fresh dough when I make pizza and use a pizza stone, oven at 450 or 500 °F.

Very thin sliced mushrooms do work better.

I haven't tried pre-cooking them to remove the water, I don't buy mushrooms that often so haven't tried it.

Yeah, I've always found too many fresh mushrooms or thick cut fresh mushrooms = watery homemade pizza that requires some careful patting down with paper towels. My take is sauce is king and there is a fine line between too many and not enough toppings that took practice to perfect.

As far as I'm concerned you can't have too many toppings. Which is why East Of Chicago was great,  they have a supreme called The Tower that is layers and layers of toppings.
Yet another reason why I can't stand "New York style" pizza. If you can fold it,  THE CRUST ISN'T DONE, and there's not enough stuff on it!

I ate like a king (albeit one who also ate at a cheap diner) during my trip to Maine.  But even the diner had a yummy stuffed halibut (which was more like halibut with stuffing on top.  Still good).  But the winners included a lobster thermidor and a wonderful skate in green sauce that tasted amazing.
