Pizza Sauce on Top or Bottom?

Some pizza shops make their pizza with the sauce on the top. This would mean that the cheese would be coverd in sauce. I've had this before and it's alright but for me I really need my pizza sauce to be on the bottom. I like to see the stringy cheese and not have it hidden by the sauce. Which do you prefer sauce on top or bottom?

I have never heard of the sauce being on top of the cheese, I don't think I would buy pizza like that

i've never seen it done where pizza sauce is put over the cheese. i don't think i'd like this very much. there is one pizza place where i live that puts the toppings (pepperoni, mushrooms, pineapple, etc) on top of the cheese. i don't like it. i've only eaten there once and have never returned because i prefer my toppings under the cheese. i like my pizza to be made with the dough on the bottom, then the pizza sauce, then the toppings, then the cheese.

I think all of the places where I live put the toppings on top of the cheese. I've had them under the cheese once before somewhere. It doesn't matter to me though as long as the sauce is on the bottom. Thanks for your response.

I also think the cheese is best on the top. I mean, it just seems like common sense to me. I can't think of any reason for someone to put the cheese on the bottom. The cheese melts onto the sauce and forms a sort of cover on the pizza, it really is what makes the pizza~

I've never seen it anywhere with sauce on the top. I don't think I would like it that way either. Seems to me it would be pretty messy. I agree, I like my cheese an stuff and I just don't think it would taste the same coming from the bottom.

You're right it doesn't taste the same. Thanks for responding.

It doesn't matter to me, why complicate a simple to prepare food? I like the looks of the sauce on bottom, cheese just looks so good and bubbly with a little brown.

i prepare to put the sauce my self but if that pizza you said is 100% with taste satisfaction even it was put on top or bottom i guess i'm ganna like that (for hawaiian, seafood, chicken and meat only).
