What Will Ruin a Pizza For You?

Growing up I remember quite clearly going to my grandmother's house. For dinner she would often order pizza from the local joint and each time I would cross my fingers that it would be delicious. Every time that warm box arrived and the lid was opened, there they sat, staring back at me — anchovies! A deal killer. What are you pizza turn-offs?

OK, so I could never see the eyes of those anchovies, but I knew, I just KNEW they were staring back at me somewhere. Although I like their taste now on other things, I'm still not a fan of them on pizza. Even though I'll eat a piece of pizza pie whenever, if there's fish on it, I'm out like trout.

Do you have a pizza turn-off? Aside from foods you might be allergic to, what items don't quite float your boat? Is it raw onions because they overpower? Fresh tomatoes because they're too squishy? What about seafood or different meats? Let us know below!
