    I had a request the other day for a "no crust" pizza. I guess the idea is that you build the pie on something like parchment... sauce, toppings, cheese etc rather than on dough.

    Is this a thing? Do any of you do it? How do you do it? Do you sell many?

    I guess I can see the appeal for someone trying to cut carbs... but otherwise, why? Seems like a hot salad with cheese.

    Thanks for reminding me of that thread Paul. The part of that discussion that stuck with me was the part about guaranteeing your competitor's product which I loved.

    sausage crust. Never had anyone ask for it. Tried doing it once. Actually on quite a few menus in some pizza places i have seen in west suburbs of Chicago. I tried it in pan. Slightly oiled the pan. Flattened out raw sausage on bottom of pan thin, sauced it and went light cheese and pepperoni. Came out better than I thought. Super greasy though. If I had to do it again I would go super light with the oil and probably cook the sausage in the pan for a few minutes first and then pull it out of the oven and sauce and put any other topping on. Better than I thought. I guess if your looking for no bread, this is one way to do it.

    Probably could just omit the oil, since sausage (especially raw) is mostly fat anyway.
