For the most part, I love pizza. Of course, I don't get to eat pizza daily or it'd ruin my diet. But, it's a nice occasional treat. And, it's not that expensive. For the most part pizza tastes really good, especially the ones from Papa John's and Pizza hut. But, the thing that I hate about pizza is that sometimes you can still taste the soggy dough, as if the pizza wasn't fully cooked. And, maybe that is the problem. So, that's what I hate about pizza, taking a big bite into almost done pizza. It ruins the entire experience for me. So, what do you hate about pizza?

The two things I hate about pizza are: when there's too much sauce and when you order half a pizza of one topping and half another, and the toppings get mixed together on some slices.

Yes, that certainly would be my other pet peeve about pizzas. When we order a half/half pizza, my spouse's toppings are always ending up on my half. Not good, since I hate bacon. I prefer the veggies and chicken on mine.

I'm an Italian girl, so I grew up on pizza - which meant, in my teen years, I loathed the stuff, considering I made it constantly for my non-italian friends, seeing as it saved them the cost of a takeaway! I don't mind it too much now, though, except I hate it when you go to an 'authentic' Italian restaurant, and they can't cook pizza to save their life!

I love pizza. Probably too much so. Pizza is like making love, even when it is bad, its still good. But there can be some downsides. My pet peeve is when the underside of the crust is burnt and the establishment does not recognize this. There is nothing worse than pizza barely cooked on top and burnt on the bottom.

EVERYTHING!!!! lols! Actually im not one of the pizza lover... and the truth is I hate pizza. i dont like the taste of the sauce and the vegetables and mushroom, and lots of toppings that it has. My partner really loves it and he is happy that I dont eat pizza because he can eat it all by himself. I like lasagna instead that he really hates. Well for those pizza lover... keep on eating!!!

I'm not a big pizza lover. I use to be, but maybe because my boyfriend brought too much for Pizza Hut, now I don't really like it. I will eat pizza only once in a while. What I hate the most about pizza is... pizza from Pizza hut lol They taste too much fat. I don,t know really how to exlain it in english ... I orefer pizza that are coming from kinda cheap restaurent. They always taste better.

The one thing i hate about pizza is when i take a big bite, chew for a little and then try to swallow but a big strand of cheese gets stuck in my throat, so i'm constantly coughing to try to get it back up. It's a horrible sensation it feels like you're choking but you're not if you get what i mean.

The taste of uncooked dough is horrible. That's exactly what I hate about pizza too. Other than that though, the thing I hate is when the crust gets cold and it's cheese stuffed. That tastes horrible!!

This is one of the foods that I simply cannot get tired of! But the thing that I hate most about them is that sometimes the ingredients on them don't have any taste at all! I'm not talking about good brands like Pizza Hut but at ordinary restaurant pizza.. either they are known recipes or House's Special! My mother sometimes makes her own pizza and I prefer it than any other type in restaurants! The one thing I love most about homemade pizza is that the cooked dough is a little crispy(not burnt) and the ingredients are tasty(we buy our supply from the market.. grown by farmers in a non-artificial environment so they don't lose their taste)! As for my favorite known pizza: Quatro Stagione ( it's divided in 4 parts.. one with cheese one with ham one with mushrooms and the last one defers in each restaurant).

pizza - pizza - hmm - yummy
I love pizza too, but there are some aspects of it that I hate: 1 - Pineapple topping. I have nothing against pineapples, but for me it doesn't go well with pizza. 2 - Here in our country pizza is an expensive snack. 3 - The thing I hate most about pizza - what else - PIZZA BURN. That's what you get when you bite into a pizza in which the cheese is so hot it burns the roof of your mouth. You get pain and difficulty eating for 1 week to 10 days. Dental experts recommend to always have a cold drink on hand before biting into hot pizza.

I like pizza for the most part. The red sauce is what usually turns me off. If it tastes too sweet or too tomato-y I won't like it. I like Domino's pizza when it comes to fast franchise types. I don't like thin crust pizza at all. I like a thick hand tossed crust. I don't like sausage on my pizza either. If it HAS to have a topping aside from just cheese, I only like ham or pepperoni.

I agree with you about the soggy crust. I hate that! Usually when you go out for pizza it is pretty good. However, if it is a buffet style you can often get a piece that has been sitting there too long and is disgusting...crust-wise. I hate doughy or over done crust. The other biggie is pizza that has tomatoes on it. I hate tomatoes on a pizza. A sandwich is ok but not my pizza!!!

We had pizza for supper last night. Since we were in a hurry and didn't have time to cook it ourselves we cooked a ready made one we bought at the store. It was horrible. There was next to nothing on it. The topping was only in the middles so most of the pizza was just crust. Well, it was cheap and you get what you pay for. Usually I make my own pizza. I don't make the dough myself, I made the ready made dough but I add everything myself. I add pepperoni and mushrooms and green pepper and a little onion and salami and tomato sauce and lots of cheese, to name a few. I'm sure if I think more about it this list would be even longer.
