thin crust, fresh mozzarella cheese (shredded from a ball and a thin layer), fresh mushroom, home made tomato sauce, a little speck or other Italian deli meat :-) Yummy.

There is more than red sauce based pizza. i.e. https://www.instructables.com/id/Pizza-bianco/  You might want to diversity. Do not get me wrong. I love an old fashioned pepperoni pizza as much as anyone else. Sometimes you just want a change.

A friend of mine who had the opportunity to visit Italy, mentioned how different the pizza's there are compared to what he now refers to as our "garbage" pizza's. Everything was "home made" and fresh (no canned/jarred sauce, in fact, they rarely used tomato sauce in the village he stayed at).

Here in Italy usually pizza is always home made, or kinda: you go in a pizzeria and you can eat a just done fresh pizza.
Isn't always true second thing you said, no canned sauce, because do the sauce with fresh tomatoes or use chopped tomatoes is a bit too much long and too expensive, while use canned tomatoes allow you to have a high quality pizza shortening times and lowering outgoings.
Ye, we see 'your' pizza as garbage, but i don't like use this term. Just we have another food culture, we combine foods without just make a mix (pepperoni, ham, green peppers, onions, olives, yellow peppers, mushrooms? seriously?).
A simple pizza is a good pizza, like mushrooms and ham, or capers and anchovies (my favorite).

We have a pizzaria known as Grottos, that uses ALL fresh stuff, from grated cheeses to fresh veggies. Of the "shops" it is one of THE best.....but the recipe a friend of mine brought home from Italy last year is VERY simple (no tomoato sauce) with cheese and veggies.......best one I have EVER tasted.

What are you talking about? No one in America calls it American Pizza, there is thick crust deep dish or pan which is Chicago style. Thin crust or Neopolitan is the standard regular round pizza in New York City which is sometimes called New York style, served by the slice - more money to be made that way. Thick crust pizza, usually in a square shape is Sicilian style pizza. I prefer a regular slice with sausage, big enough to fold down the center with the grease dripping out the back, cheese oozing out the front, sauce not too heavy but flavorful, crust nice and crispy with a random burnt air pocket, all with a hint of smokiness, if not from a coal fired oven then the char from a "good dirty" oven.

The author's profile claims he's from Bucharest. I would say that someone in Eastern Europe might legitimately describe thick-crust pizza, which is not typically found in Italy, as "American style", and proper thin-crust (usually made on a semi-crisp flatbread) as "Italian style".

I think "California style" just means you throw non-traditional ingredients on top. Do it for long enough, and they become "traditional" (like ham and pineapple, aka "Hawaiian pizza").

Despite my love for traditional Roman pizza Margherita, one of the best dinner pizzas I've had was smoked salmon and capers, with light cream-cheese and dill sauce under it. No other cheese, and no tomatoes, but thin slivers of red onion added spice. Essentially a nova lox bagel in pizza form.

A friend of mine, who was recently in Italy, said their pizzas are nothing like ours. Many places don't smother it in tomato sauce (some use none at all) and always fresh everything (although, how one can call moldy milk, i.e. cheese, fresh is beyond me ;-) Since everything is SO expensive over there, they shoot for enhanced flavor, rather then bulk in their foods.

Italian Pizza. wonderful indeed got a lot that here in New Jersey. tried hundreds Americanized pizza is almost like an imitation of its superior. doesn't matter if thick or thin, flavors and sauces whether its veg. with lots of cheese or lots of tomatoes, spices and all that jojooos. The secret is where you cook it and how you cook it, nothing beats old school cooking. Jersey baby!!!

Depending on what part of Italy, Sicily and or Sardinia, the pizzas are different. Personally. we make it ourselves . I will not eat at an American pizza place unless I have to. Pizza is so darn easy to make. Sometimes I like the thin pizza traditionally known as rag bread, or I might go for something more like focaccia. Just depends. As for toppings, what's in the fridge?

I like Italian pizza that has NOT been Americanized.....no tomato sauce, medium thick crust, lay down some cheese, then some peppers, tomatoes, etc. on top, a little spice and that is a great pizza if done correctly.
