This past weekend, Bossy’s delightful one was visiting, and attached to her was this guy. On Sunday, the family convened at Bossy’s mom’s house, where Bossy’s mom had gathered the makings for pizza.
The first thing Bossy’s mom did was stretch out the pizza dough to within an inch of its life:
Next Bossy’s mom turned the pizza dough loose on the two goofs, who arranged the various ingredients in different combinations:
Then the family sat down to taste-test the many pizzas. Bossy can sum up her pizza preference in this way: It must be round, though not always. And with stuff.
Which is what today’s Ten-Word Challenge is all about. In exactly ten words, can you tell Bossy which toppings you prefer on your pizza?
And be sure to check back later today for the best toppings on the web.
If you missed last week’s challenge about Live Aid and the photo of 18-year-old Bossy, don’t! Click here to read what Bossy’s council was doing in 1985, described in ten words, of course.

#38 Bossy’s Mom–cracker crust is in reference to a thin, crispy crust much like a cracker that way you don’t get full on all the dough and can enjoy more toppings! My fav crust style.

Mushrooms, onions, green olives, extra cheese; I’m NOT a vegetarian.
At #56 (Judi): How can you hate pizza, when there are so many different options? It must be the crust you hate. Wait, no, there’s a million crust options, too. What gives?
Ami saysJuly 21, 2010 at 1:44 pm
artichoke hearts, herbed chicken, red onions, spinach, whole wheat crust.

Chicago style deep dish Lou Malnatti’s spinach or sausage. Yum.
Judi saysJuly 21, 2010 at 8:32 pm
#63 Kay – pizza ranks right up there with OLIVES as just plain awful. Except . . . I can eat pizza if I have to. Can’t do olives no how, no way. Don’t like any part of pizza–the crust, the sauce, the toppings, although weirdly enough I do like other tomato-based dishes, spaghetti, lasagna, etc.
Baby Favorite saysJuly 21, 2010 at 8:50 pm
I totally agree with #67 above — Lou Malnatti’s in Chicago! I’ve never BEEN there, but you can bet we’ve had it delivered to California several times now. Scrumptious. NOTHING ELSE LIKE IT.
Jon saysJuly 21, 2010 at 10:48 pm
Hot sausage, mozz, jalepeno peppers, cream cheese, onion, black olives
claire saysJuly 21, 2010 at 11:49 pm
